We had a wonderful weekend at Ruskin lodge. The location of the lodge is amazing with fantastic views.

The lodge is tastefully decorated and very well equipped ,with what seems to be everything you need for a self catering holiday. The prosecco and yummy fudge was a very nice welcome. It was lovely and clean and very warm and cosy, especially so with the very fluffy bath robes.

We arrived around dinner time on Friday evening and went to the onsite pub for a meal. Which was great. The staff were really friendly.

We took a short drive to Ambleside and Windermere the next day and visited the Mortal man for an excellent meal.

There is a good onsite outdoor park for the children and some good walks around the area.

We will definitely return and can't wait for our next holiday there.
Thankyou

“Fantastic”
Reviewed 21 November 2016 for a stay in November 2016

This was our first visit to Limefitt Park and we were not disappointed. The lodge was immaculate, very well equipped and beautifully furnished to a very high standard. It was very easy, in such a relaxing ambience, to unwind and re-charge our batteries.
The site was very peaceful, with plenty of local walks from the site, and ideally situated for visits to,the rest of the Lakes . We found the pub (Haybarn) on the site, very welcoming and friendly,
Already trying to plan our next visit

Well appointed. Fully equipped and we wanted for nothing. Convenient for visiting Windermere and Ambleside. We enjoyed our week there.

“Fantastic Lodge”
Reviewed 8 November 2016 for a stay in October 2016

This is our second stay at Ruskin Lodge which now has new owners. Thankfully they have kept and even improved the high standards set by the previous owners. Nice new touched like Dressing gowns, new board games and a nice bottle of wine and Chocolates when we arrived.
The hoover at the lodge has seen better days and needs replacing and a roasting tin would be a good addition to the kitchen equipment. Very minor points in what is a lovely comfortable lodge in a beautiful setting.
The on-site Haybarn Inn has been taken over by Vic and his wife and improvements were noticeable straight away. This a great place to relax after a long day.

Thank you for your very positive review on the lodge. We have worked hard since purchasing the lodge 8 weeks ago to replace and improve where we can. In fact the weekend after your stay we replaced all of the saucepans, frying pans, roasting tins and cooking utensils! The hoover hadn't come to our attention - but rest assured this will be looked into and replaced.

We are pleased you enjoyed the prosecco and fudge and appreciated the fluffy robes! Hope to see you again in the future.
