The Lake District is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site!! Badger's Way Lodge is at the heart of this and a wonderful place to stay, whatever the time of year! There's so much to do here - both for children and adults and our visiting badgers are a wonderful bonus! They arrive every evening, for supper on the decking! Our lodge is perfect for all ages and families; in fact anyone who enjoys the countryside will love staying here. The views are fantastic and there are many enjoyable walks straight from the lodge. Badger's Way is situated in a prime position at Limefitt, a 5 star park near Lake Windermere. Set in beautiful countryside, the lodge is only a few minutes from the attractive, bustling towns of Windermere, Bowness and Ambleside.It is privately owned, built to a high specification...The Lake District is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site!!

It's warm and cosy in the winter and light and airy in the summer - an ideal place to return to, after a day out in the Lakes. The large enclosed decking is south facing, safe for children and has garden furniture, flowers and delightful views.The spectacular scenery here, the well kept grounds, the incredible beauty and attractions of The Lake District and the abundance of wildlife will make a visit to Badger's Way unforgettable!!
