Couldn't fault the lodge itself. Very comfortable and spotlessly clean. The only downside is its proximity to the main road and roundabout which could be a problem in the summer when you need windows open.

Good location for everything in Keswick . Well equipped lodge . Close to a main road so traffic noise when outside or doors open an issue for us.

Delightful lodge in a pretty setting. Easy walking distance from Keswick and all shops and cafes but at the foot of Lattrig and Skiddaw so good walking from the door. Warm and cosy to come back to!

The Lake District National Park is a superb choice for a holiday. If you love nature and the great outdoors, the Lake District is one of the UK’s most beautiful holiday destinations. Taking up the lion’s share of the north-western county of Cumbria, the region has been popular with visitors since Victorian times, and it’s the only place to find mountains in England. Peace and tranquillity characterise the wonderful Lake District, with 16 lakes, including England’s longest and deepest, there is much to see and do. Visit Coniston Water, Ullswater, Wast Water and Windermere for just a taste of what you can see in the Lake District National Park.

Small towns like Ambleside, Windermere, Hawkshead, Bowness-on-Windermere and Glenridding all make for great bases from which to relax and unwind between sojourns into the fantastic natural landscapes of the Lake District National Park. Wildlife and bird lovers can spot all kinds of lesser spotted species in situ, and walking trails reveal some of the very best vistas within English borders. To embellish the experience, you can enjoy some of the country’s cosiest pubs and restaurants, many found in picture-perfect locations.
