Had an amazing 4 night stay in this ‘home from home’ lodge. Fantastically clean, extremely comfortable and very well equipped including WIFI. Julie and James were lovely, welcoming and very attentive. Perfect location to stay for visiting the Lakes and Yorkshire Dales. We wanted a relaxing holiday and that exactly what we got and more, so much so we didn’t want to go home. Can highly recommend a stay here. Thanks again Julie and James for letting us stay in your wonderful lodge.
We stayed in this lovely, well-equipped, thoughtfully and tastefully decorated lodge in South Lakeland Leisure Village for 4 nights during the week. The Leisure Village was quite empty and therefore quiet and peaceful. We loved every minute of our stay. We found the owners, Julie & Jim, to be friendly, helpful and very informative regarding outings and walks. There are many leaflets, pamphlets and books in the lodge, giving advice and interesting facts on sights and trails in the area of the Lake District and beyond. Julie & Jim made us feel very welcome from the moment we met. We will definitely be back in the new year, possibly for a longer period.
We booked this lovely lodge through Tripadvisor and because it's just slightly outside the Lakes area it is a lot cheaper than if you booked elsewhere. The lodge is well-equipped and furnished to a very good standard, clean throughout too. The park itself is lovely and quiet, with lots of great stuff in the area for families and kids. It's also located just off the M6 so there's not too far to travel to find your way.
The nearest town is Carnforth, which has an Aldi and Tesco, plus lots of other little local shops etc. (We hadn't brought towels, which aren't provided, so thankfully Aldi had lots!).
There is a bar/restaurant on-site and although we didn't eat there, the menu looks good and is well-priced. The swimming pool is lovely and you can get day/3-day/weekly passes for the facilities. There is also a small launderette on site as well, which was handy.
We didn't have any issues, but if so Jim and Julie are on-site and easily contactable. They're a lovely couple and gave us lots of great recommendations for days out.
All in all a well-priced, comfortable lodge and a very pleasant holiday.
