“Home away from home”
Reviewed 23 October 2018 for a stay in October 2018

Beautiful house with large rooms and great position for touring in the Lake District. Larger mirror in en suite would be good but everything else you need has been provided. Great garden area must be lovely to sit out in the summer.

“Fantastic accommodation & location”
Reviewed 8 August 2018 for a stay in August 2018

A wonderful, quiet & secluded location with the lake just a small walk away. Great for kids with the activity centre so close. The accommodation is spacious, clean & comfortable with a private drive. We would highly recommend the Deer Thwaite Lodge. Thanks for having us.

“Fantastic ”
Reviewed 14 July 2018 for a stay in July 2018

Our family enjoyed this brilliant cottage. We didn't realise the garden was communal but that was the only thing that we could possibly nitpick about. The location is great. There is so much in the cottage. Other places lack basic amenities but this one has the lot. Thought has gone into having it well stocked with anything you might need including crockery, games and books. Brockhole is just across the road. Windermere and Ambleside are just a few minutes away by car. Superb.

Many thanks for the great review! We do share the garden but very often are the only family using it. It's a great safe place for children to play. It is in a very central location and we hope you had a lovely stay. Thanks, Julie

“Delightful Lake District stone lodge”
Reviewed 17 June 2018 for a stay in June 2018

Lovely woodland setting, within walking distance of the Great North Swim venue, which was the reason for our visit. Also a short walk to some lovely hotels for lakeside dining / drinks. Water sports available here too.
We all loved the lodge, and it was perfect for our party of 5 adults. Every room was spacious and to a high standard, with every thing catered for. The kitchen was well equipped and a focal point. The garden was very peaceful and the local wildlife joined us for breakfast every day.
5 minutes drive to Ambleside and 10 to Bowness / Windermere.
Couldn't believe our luck in finding such an amazing place. Would definitely stay here again.

“Quintessential cottage in idyllic location”
Reviewed 16 April 2018 for a stay in April 2018

Absolutely gorgeous home that has clearly been very well looked after and loved. Excellent location for exploring the Windermere, Bowness-on-Windermere and Ambleside and right across the road from tree top trek, great for family’s.

Communication from Julie was first class and she went above and beyond to ensure our stay was perfect.

Looking forward to our next visit already.
