We had lovely christmas, house is a great venue for large gathering, dinning table fabulous. Kitchen well equipped, although basics like cheese grater and garlic press would be useful. Need slippers as floors not too clean☹️. Would definitely go again.

We had a great weekend. We were fully aware there were limited amenities and ordered an Asda delivery on our arrival time. Which was great. The postcode for this property takes you to a field...luckily we worked this out before we went and told all the guests where to go. Decor in main living arrears is a little dated but the rooms are great, clean and all en suite. With Grizedale forest 5 mins walk away all the guests, kids and dogs loved it. There were no instructions regarding recycling, rubbish and bedding upon departure...a couple more personal touches would have been nice (a welcome pack with instructions of various things.) Overall, a lovely time was had in lovelt surroundings.

The Lodge is a really good sized space for large parties. We were party of 14 adults and had a fantastic week there. It is in a beautiful setting with walks through the Woods nearby and a short drive into Hawkshead. All the rooms being on suite was great, there was plenty of hot water. However, as others reviewers have said the pictures on the website are very flattering of the decor and furniture. It would appear that the bathrooms have been done the most recent, but some of the other rooms are looking very tired along with the furniture, especially in the lounge. We also felt that the cleaning was a bit hit and miss. The floor of bedroom 7 did not appear to have been cleaned for sometime and other rooms were quite dusty. The kitchen is also in need of an overhaul. Unfortunately the hob of the range and the grill were out of action (things and break and we understood it was difficult to get a repair before we arrived) but it was challenging cooking meals for large numbers on portable electric rings. There was plenty of crockery etc, but the kitchen utensils and equipment etc were a bit hit and miss. One baking tray and one roasting tin for a large house was not sufficient. Having said all that we really enjoyed ourselves, but just feel it is ready for a good overhaul and redecoration.
