Excellent cottage in an idyllic location. Tim was very welcoming and would do anything to make your stay great. Very helpful and obliging. Lovely secure garden, ideal for our puppy, with a small walk to Bassenthwaite lake where she could have a paddle !! Very peaceful area, great place to unwind. Will definitely book again.

Hi Joanne, thank you for taking the time to write a review. It sounds like you had a lovely relaxing break. It's the perfect place to escape from the hustle and bustle for a while isn't it? The location is stunning. I bet your puppy had great fun paddling in the Lake. I hope you can plan a return visit soon, you can be sure of a warm welcome.

We had read reviews on the website from previous people who had stayed at Lakeside Lodge. There were comments about the kitchen equipment in particular the state of the pots and pans. I spoke to the owner 3 days before the start of the holiday and was assured he would check. The frying pans were unusable because stained or rusty. There were 3 saucepans, one leaked from the handle rivets. The cutlery was cheap and nasty and there was only one teaspoon.....thank goodness we had our pinic set with us. Sally's Cottage write-up stated the bathroom had been recently refurbished but it did not look like it. The bath was lethal with slopping sides.. Loved the cottage though but the kitchen does need to be sorted !!

Our stay at Lakeside lodge overall was good. It's in a great location for nearby walks and our dog Murphy had a great time! The bed was comfortable however the pillows were rock hard/lumpy, easy fix but worth mentioning. Unfortunately we were let down quite a bit by the kitchen. Shortly after arrival we went to have some food and discovered the cutlery was dirty from previous use, leaving me to feel like I needed to thoroughly wash everything! The pots and pans need replacing as they're incredibly worn and ruined a few meals for us. A non stick frying pan is a must for a self catering holiday!

Hi Louise, thank you for taking the time to write a review. I'm glad you enjoyed your break. The location is stunning isn't it? Just perfect if you enjoy getting out for some good walks, I bet Murphy was in his element! I'm really sorry to hear that some of the cleanliness wasn't up to scratch when you arrived. Thank you for bringing it to my attention, I'll make sure I address it with the cleaner. I really appreciate all your feedback and suggestions for improvement and will look into everything you've mentioned, thank you. I hope you can come back to explore more of the Lakes soon.
