“Excellent accomodation, site and location.”
Reviewed 29 August 2012 for a stay in July 2012

I have holiday'd at skiddaw view for the past 5 years and the experience just gets better and better. It is ideal to use as a base for adventures in the surrounding hills and mountains or for that relaxing break. For couples I recommend a stay in Mulberry lodge, for it's size, space and location. If you have children theres' plenty of other good options in varied park locations.

“Enjoyable stay”
Reviewed 10 August 2012 for a stay in August 2012

Although the accommodation was very good it did lack a couple of extras. A loo roll holder would be of use in the bathroom and a lamp in the second bedroom.

“Great accommodation, lovely area, child friendly lodge.”
Reviewed 14 July 2012 for a stay in July 2012

Very pleased with the accommodaion. We stayed in a 2 bedroom lodge, immaculately clean and fresh. Some extra basics supplied which was very helpful e.g wash up liquid etc. Holiday park very clean and tidy and play park great for our kids (age 5 and 6). Laundry facilities great, and park is quiet and pleasant. Area very picturesque and very handy for Cockermouth, not far for Keswick too. Recommend the park and the Dobby lodges in particular.

“Beautiful Lodges”
Reviewed 1 November 2011 for a stay in October 2011

We hired 3 lodges between 7 of us, all the lodges were fantastic, Dobby was very comfortable, well equipped, comfy beds and sofa that you didn't want to get up from which is unusual for a holiday rental, great shower,nice that all bedding and towels were supplied - very good quality. Can't really think of anything negative about the lodges or the park, wouldn't hesitate to recommend. Having wi-fi is a great bonus too.

“Relaxing setting, excellent location for the Lake District”
Reviewed 13 October 2011 for a stay in October 2011

Dobby Lodge is an immaculately presented lodge in a very relaced setting. The park, itself, is well maintained.

The location is perfect with Lake Buttermere, Derwent Water, Keswick, Bassenthwaite lake all within easy driving distance (20 mins).

This is our 2nd stay and will be looking to go again next year!
