Mr Leith

A good situation to explore the lake district. The accommodation and the friendliness of the owners helped with our stay.
Mr Carter

Superb accommodation and very welcoming owners. Easy to moderate walking straight from your doorstep. Fantastic opportunities to spot wildlife. Also a great base to explore the lakes and coast of the southern end of the Lake District. We would highly recommend.
Mrs Leng

We've had the most wonderful, relaxing time here. The lodge was so cosy and warm, an absolute delight. The design, fixtures and fittings are absolutely top quality. We've stayed in dozens of cottages over the years and this is by far the best. Being in the hot tub while big spots of cold rain fell on us was an experience we all thoroughly enjoyed. We would definitely return here, thank you to the owner for making us feel so welcome.
Mr Scott

Perfect! Loved the hot tub too.
