Lorraine & Martin made us feel their special guests from the moment they came out to greet our arrival to the moment they waved us bye-bye.

Don't go here - unless you want B & B perfection; Don't go here - unless you expect excellent service; Don't go here - unless you want stunning accommodations; for In truth we got all three and much much more.

We would say...Go nowhere else but Hawksdale Lodge if you wish to be treated as special, which is appropriate from two hosts who are just as equally special themselves - as Lorraine & Martin have the ability to apparently effortlessly combine freindlyness and hospitality professionalism with all the ease of a magicians pulling white rabbits from top hats. (Oh yes...their food is magic also.)

to make it even better...Hawksdale Lodge do all that...at rates which are far less than we would expect (hint hint Lorraine & Martin)

thanks you two - Pete & Bren

We stayed here in July with friends for one night. We were welcomed with tea and cake on arrival. The owners were very welcoming and coped well as there were 10 of us. Breakfast the next morning was outstanding with homemade muesli, sourdough bread and a delightful banana ring served with maple syrup. We would definitely recommend Hawkesdale lodge and would have liked to spend another night.

From the moment we arrived we were welcomed by Lorraine and Martyn with smiles and warmth, cookies and cakes! The house itself is immaculate and has real character and sits in fantastic grounds. The view from our bedroom was idyllic and the sunrise in the morning coming over the hills was amazing. The room we stayed in was extremely spacious and decorated according to the style of the house, with its own bathroom which again was extremely spacious.

I'm imagining Lorraine may have been some sort of professional chef in a previous life because the food that was prepared for us was absolutely delicious. The breakfast will keep you going for days!

For the service you receive and for the sheer pleasure of staying in such a wonderful home with such wonderful people, the rate charged was an absolute bargain - I don't think anyone could complain with that at all.

This is without doubt the nicest place we have stayed. If only everywhere we stayed was as memorable as this. We would not hesitate to visit Hawksdale Lodge again should we have chance.

Thank-you Lorraine and Martyn.

Thank you Matt, I'm so pleased you both enjoyed your stay with us at Hawksdale Lodge. It is very rewarding to hear that our guests really feel relaxed and just a bit pampered whilst they are here. The views are stunning aren't they, we never cease to admire them - in fact we can easily while away a significant amount of time just watching the ever changing light. We look forward to welcoming you back. kind regards, Lorraine

What a fantastic place to stay. A very relaxing stay and excellent host. The breakfast has the most amazing selection and the sausages are the tastiest I have ever had. Would recommend everybody I know or just meet in the street to stay there. Will never stay in another place within the vicinity of the Lake District.

Thank you for reviewing us. I'm really pleased you felt relaxed, we try hard to ensure we strike the right balance for our guests. The sausages are rather special aren't they, the local butcher who produces them specializes in selling meat produced on the surrounding farms, and very good it is too. In fact I often get asked to bring some sausages when we're invited to stay with friends! I Thank you again for the review and i hope we can welcome you back one day. Lorraine.
