We booked a lodge for a week in August with our 3 teenage kids and 2 dogs and we absolutely loved it. The lodge is spacious and well equipped and the log burner gives you that extra warmth in the evening. The owner was really friendly and very helpful when booking and helped out when we left something behind. The supermarkets are a few miles away so well worth getting your groceries delivered. The lodges are set in lovely surroundings with the campsite next door and there are a couple of really nice pubs within walking distance. The little steam train that runs up the valley is fantastic and accessible through the camping ground. These lodges are well worth a visit and we will be returning.
We are here on our honeymoon and due to leave tomorrow, we brought our two springer spaniels with us. We have been staying in wood bank lodge and I would highly recommend it. The lodge itself is very luxurious, on our arrival it was clean and had instructions etc for all the amenities. The lodge has a bath and shower combined and the kitchen is well stocked with utensils. The bed is comfortable and we have really enjoyed using the wood burner in the evenings and the television gets all freesat channels. There is also a washing machine and tumble dryer in the barn which we've used once. The location is fantastic, it is quiet and there are plenty of walks to go on that vary in difficulty. We have eaten out in The Boot Inn which is about a mile and a half away and that was excellent, it is also dog friendly. Also relatively close by (8 miles) is wast water which is worth a visit and we have also been to Windermere which took about an hour to drive on some winding roads. There is a small shop in Eskdale Green (approx 20 min walk) which stocks the essentials and we have had two deliveries from Tesco to the lodge. The railway was great, I would recommend taking a journey from one end to the other and the station cafe serves good food and also allows dogs downstairs. In conclusion we have really enjoyed our time here, I would gladly recommend to anyone seeking a relaxed break away from the hustle and bustle of normal life and we will be returning next year.
Best experience! and Pete(owner) is really friendly and nice! beautiful place!!! Loved it so much can't even explain in word.
Lovely clean and fully equipped lodge set in beautiful surroundings, plenty of walks on the doorstep.
Everywhere is dog friendly, not just lip-service as is so often found.
We had a wonderful stay here with our dog,Gizmo.. the lodge is a home from home and immaculately clean, everything you need in the lodge. A beautiful part of the lake district, in a prime position with walks from the door. Very friendly owner came over for a chat too. We will definitely be back and will tell all how nice the place is. Thank you for a lovely holiday. Xx
