The lodge is always pleasant to come back to, good or bad weather. Had the wood fire going every night. Peaceful, convenient for Grasmere, good central location for exploring the lakes. Will be back again in spring next year.

The property is well appointed with fantastic views over the village and surrounding hills. Lake Windemere is a 15 minute walk away where it is easy to pick up the regular boats that leave to travel along the length of the lake. Being centrally located access to all other parts of the Lake District is straight forward. But we did not stray far from Ambleside which has a fantastic arrange of places to eat and drink. Recommendations include eS Bar for Tapas, Lucy's on a plate for evening dinner and The Golden Rule for a traditional pint. Worth a walk is the Waterfalls accessed quite easily at the bottom of the slope into town. The property itself is spacious and comfortable. The recently refurbished bathrooms are great and the wi-fi and Sky TV package perfect for teenagers! Our only challenge was the drive which is very steep but after a couple of tries we mastered the technique!!
