I never seem to write a review on anything but I just wanted to share our family Christmas holiday experience at artlegarth lodges as this place is absolutely amazing.
We were abit worried as it was our first Christmas away with 3 children aged 3, 6 and 9 and didn’t know if the children would be entertained as it’s rural. But I can honestly say all of us including our two dogs enjoyed this holiday.
The cabin was clean and supplied with everything you could possibly need. The scenery is amazing! There is too much to list but to put it in short terms the whole place is out of this world. Better than we could have hoped.
Neil and Jennie were there to great us when we arrived and answered any questions we had, they were also available at the other end of the phone if we needed them. Lovely couple and made you feel like you had known them ages.
Booked again for Christmas 2018
If you have any doubts... don’t because if you want a relaxing break with beautiful views friendly owners where nothing is too much trouble and not far to travel to other villages and towns this is the place you want to stay! ❤️❤️
I came here with a group of my friends for my hen do and we had such an amazing weekend. It was our fourth visit and we can’t wait to come back. The lodge is always immaculately clean. Curlew in perticual has such a homely feel and is well kitted out with anything you may need. Neil and Jennie are excellent hosts and are always at the end of the phone if you have any problems, nothing seems to be much trouble.
On our arrival we had prosecco waiting, a delicious chocolate cake and a lovely welcome card.
Thank you for helping make me Hen do such a memerable experience.
Been visiting Artlegarth for a few years now and we absolutely love the place! Every thing is perfect! Especially the hot tub. No one there to bother us, so me and my 2 children can chill out and not worry about a thing. Thank you for making our stay so special every single time ❤
My daughter has just celebrated her 30th birthday and asked sister Helen and I to organise a surprise weekend away with friends and family. After much searching we found Artlegarth lodges only an hour and half from us but in a very pretty part of cumbria. The lodges could accommodate us all (9) and the owners Neil and Jennie were more than happy to help provide info on things to do and book. Neil and Jennie had thought of everything even down to cling film foil and washing up sponges with a lovely cake, tea tray and fresh spring flowers ready for our arrival in each lodge and banner, balloon and happy birthday candles especially for Fiona. The 2 lodges Curlew and Lapwing are spacious and very comfortable, nicely decorated and very clean. As we were making some meals we found the kitchen equipment to be more than adequate. The weather was not kind to us but that did not stop us using the Hot Tubs - easy to use and to get into with plenty of room on the comfy outside furniture for people to sit and chat if not in the tubs...love the changing light colours!!! The lodges are well spaced on the site with plenty of outside space for family games etc..... and the grounds are well cared for. Neil and Jennie should be very proud of their lodges they are a credit to the holiday industry!
This was our second trip to the Artlegarth Lodges and on both occasions we have stayed in the Curlew Lodge. I couldn't think of a single fault. Such a amazing and peaceful place. Everything we could have possibly needed. Hot tub is immaculate and so relaxing. The owners are so helpful, anything you need and they are more than willing to help. Will be definitely be visiting a third time.
Stayed here with a group of friends for a long weekend in January. Every year we pick a cabin with a hot tub and that was how this one was chosen. This year we got the main bedroom and although it doesn't have an en suite it didn't bother us. It was the closest room to the shared bathroom anyway.
The hot tub was one of the best ones we have used. Just about fitted 6 adults and stayed lovely and warm for hours. Kitchen was equipped with everything we needed and had a modern oven and dishwasher. Only downside was the WiFi, we couldn't stay connected long enough to do anything. The views and scenary more than made up for this. One morning we saw a grouse whilst eating breakfast and saw shooting stars when we were sat out in the hot tub at night. I would definitely recommend this cabin to anyone wising to get away to a rural location.
This is our 5th visit to Artlegarth Country Lodges, this time with another couple who loved the experience just just as we did. This visit by far has seen the biggest changes in the Lapwing Lodge, this is our favourite by the way. We were so excited to see a brand new kitchen with an integrated dishwasher which saved us so much time! We also loved the introduction of induction jobs which reduce the time of cooking massively. It's nice to see new changes being made to such a high standard. We took advantage of the gas BBQ this year as well which was lovely even when it was cold! The Sunken Hot Tub was as good as always, so relaxing in the evening with a beer gazing at the clear sky's above with stars everywhere. The new bathroom was also a lovely surprise, completed to such a high standard, no corners cut which was lovely! The location of the lodges really do make them extra special. Lovely walks nearby with amazing country pubs with log fires and the views are spectacular on site. It's lovely to be so remote but so close to everything you need. There will be many more visits to come, Neil and Jennie have really invested hard into making these lodges something special and their continued investment of not just money but creativity will only continue to improve them. I have no negative comments as everything we have mentioned previously has been improved. Keep up the amazing work and exceptional levels of customer service. Oh just to add on to the end which is probably one of the nicest touches, every time we visit there is always a lovely tea tray waiting for us with a delicious cake and beautiful flowers. As we always travel for my wife's birthday in January there are always Birthday banners waiting for her which makes the stay that little more extra special which is another reason why we keep returning. If you haven't been I really urge you to visit, you will definitely love it and be back. These are the very best Scandinavian lodges, so original but has just the right amount of modern appliances to make your stay more of a home from home. See you next year ! Louis, Serena, Josh, Chloe.
