“Spacious, peaceful, lovely location, could have been cleaner.”
Reviewed 5 September 2012 for a stay in August 2012

My husband and daughter spent a week in one of the Dobby Lodges. They are well designed and spacious and the Skiddaw View Holiday Park is peaceful and relaxing. Very dog friendly too which was great. My only niggle would be that although superficially clean, it was superficial. More care should be taken to clean properly between guests.

“SUPER MODERN LODGE, SPOTLESS”
Reviewed 5 September 2012 for a stay in August 2012

Beautiful lodge in an absolutely pristine conditon, with everything included, nothing you could need while staying here. Everything was totally spotless and squeaky clean, the only thing I could fault was the not so clean cushions on the sofa. Everything else was so modern and contemporary, including the style of the lodge. My kids aged 10 and 14 loved it. Great for exploring the lakes and surrounding areas. Would definately stay here again. Every piece of equipment was included down to dog feeding equipment. Totally superb and would recommend without hesitation, I do have very high standards and this more than exceeded them, - fab !!!

“Pleasantly surprised at the level of quality and attention to detail at Dobby Lodge”
Reviewed 4 September 2012 for a stay in August 2012

The holiday park was in a nice location in the North Lakes ideal for a family holiday or weekend break as long as you get good weather. The holiday park would be even better if there was a small shop on site and some indoor activities for wet weather. Dobby Lodge was great and they had stocked it with everything a family would need for a self catering holiday to a high standard of quality. We'd definitely go back :)

“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.
