A very nice and modern accommodation in a beautiful location. There was also a nice, big car park available, which for me is always a big plus.
It is easy to find as it is located by the main road. It is also dog friendly so travelling with your dog is not a problem.

Hi TheBeautifulBritain, Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts on your stay with us. I am pleased to know you found our Lodge a modern, clean place to stay during your visit to The Lakes. We are in a great location to get the most from what the area has to offer. I am sorry you to disappoint you by not having meals for the evening, but we do not have a kitchen, this is why we just have a nice size coffee shop. I hope this does not put you off future stays with us. Kind regards, Jess

I’d read mixed reviews about this hotel, some reviews had said the rooms were dark and small. Yes, the window wasn’t the biggest but our room was a good size, very clean and had beautiful views. It wasn’t the most luxurious hotel I’ve ever stayed at but it was very pleasant and s

How long would it take to walk to Keswick? Or do you need to use transport? Thanks
You can walk over High fell and walk into Keswick that way.Need good walking map of the area or GPS.Much nicer walk than walking along the busy road and get the bus back.

Hi there, I just wanted to enquire, is 2 nights enough or would you recommend 3 or more? Thanks
I would recommend three nights, but it depends on the time of year you go and how far you want to explore the Lake District. We've been going there for years, both in our caravan and in bed & breakfast accommodation, but we never tire of it. To us it is lovely in all seasons.

How far is the lodge from the kings head is it walking distance??
Hi Karen The King's Head is 0.85 miles from the Lodge. It takes about 20 minutes to walk there. As other guests have mentioned, a torch is a good idea, there are no street lights. Please let me know if you have any further questions. Regards The Lodge

Hi does the lounge/bar serve any food for lunch & dinner? If not how far away are the best places to eat?
Hi The coffee shop is open daily from breakfast until 9.30pm, serving teas, coffees, cakes, snacks, paninis and alcoholic drinks. We don't offer full evening meals, the nearest gasto pub/restaurant is only half a mile away (The King's Head Inn), Alternatively, Keswick is 5 miles away. Please let me know if you require any further information. Kind Regards Lana Manager

Hi,I'm thinking of taking my dog,what happens at Breakfast time,can the dog come with you?
Hi only one well behaved dog at breakfast, which sat below the table, so they must be allowed. I have to add that bars and restaurants in Keswick have no problems with allowing dogs in.

"1st floor at the back for a quieter room as away from road"
"I had a corner suite that contained a double and a single bed."
"Dont go here if you have family and take care if you book via Expedia."
"there is no lift so if you have restricted mobility, you may need a ground floor room"
"if you need a more spacious room,eg have slight mobility issues, ask for one when you book."
