Had a great 4 x night stay at Fellside lodge, few steps up to the front door, could sit in lounge for ages admiring the view, a short 5 minute walk up an incline to the Haybarn pub, good exercise. 10 minute drive down to stunning Windermere.
Will definitely return.
We thoroughly enjoyed our weekend in fellside lodge, we only wish we were staying longer!
The lodge is immaculate, nice views, very warm and has bonus entertainment such as xbox, CD player and a selection of box to suit all ages. It's a home away from home. If the weather was better and warmer we would have enjoyed drinks out on the decking, but not really possible in December.
The bar and restaurant is also fantastic, lovely meals, good selection of drinks and all available as take out.
We would love to return. It's a great base for the lakes, with Ambleside only 10 minutes drive.
We spent a week at half term here and had an amazing time. The lodge was impeccably clean and tidy. There were many nice touches such as welcome card and chocolates and the boys loved the X Box. The site was very quiet with stunning scenery and safe for kids to have freedom in their bikes.
So much to do nearby and perfect for anyone wanting rest and relaxation.
We have stayed at Fellside Lodge for a number of years now. We love the Lakes. The lodge is in a fantastic location especially for peace and quiet but also for some lovely easy walks either round the site or into the village of Troutbeck or even to the pub! If you are very lucky you may even get a visit from the badgers or see deer's in the woods behind the lodge. The lodge is always lovely and clean. If you have any problems Bash or Donna are only at the other end of the phone. I would truly recommend a visit.
We have had a lovely stay. The location of the Lodge is superb, feels totally private, although there are other lodges around, this lodge is raised up, so we felt it was so peaceful and out of the way of the lodges below. It also backs on to the greenery at the back - we seen deer, which the children loved! Waking up to the view out of the bedroom window was so nice, and staying in bed that extra 10 mins to watch out for deer was nice. The views from the front of the lodge are beautiful, there are also a group of horses that roam around the field opposite the lodge, each morning our little girl would wave at them. We found the Lodge itself to be very well kept and looked after, very clean and fully equipped. The little card and gift went down really well too, it's the little gestures like this that makes me smile - thanks Bash and Donna for a lovely stay :)
Modern lodge in lovely quiet location with beautiful views across the valley. We stayed for four days but wish we had booked for longer! The lodge was spotlessly clean and extremely well equipped with multiple TVs, CD and DVD players, X-box etc. Also comfortable beds and very good range of eating and cooking equipment including microwave. There is a decked patio area with table and chairs which we used as much as possible.
We visited the on site pub for a drink, but did not eat there. We did eat at the pub at the top end of Troutbeck village (the Queen's Head) which was excellent.
Good walks out from the site without having to use the car - there is a bridleway that starts near Troutbeck Church leading up to the Troutbeck "main street". If you are feeling energetic (which we were not!) you can continue this walk all the way to Ambleside.
Minor criticism - nowhere to hang outdoor (damp?) clothes. Did not affect us as weather was perfect, but could be an issue in a typical Lake District autumn/spring!
