It had all the facilities that you need and the lodge was literally 3-4 mins walk to the shore of lake. If I plan to visit lake district I would Definetely book the same lodge. We simply enjoyed our stay at your lodge. Thank you Paul for your good customer service and good work on keeping your lodge clean, fresh and upto the good standards. Will recommend to anyone.

                                                                                        5 of 5

All the utensils, pots and pans etc are more than adequate, however be prepared to bring/buy extra items like more dishwasher tablets, foil and kitchen roll if you plan to make meals at the cottage as we did. Also extra loo roll! That said this is a minor point, which does not detract from the fact that we had a wonderful stay and would definitely recommend. It is a shame there is no garden, but we knew that before we booked. Previous reviews have mentioned that their is no need to leave the area, which is something we can associate with. We bought a book from the local Co-Op, for walks from Elterwater, which is the best £3.50 you could spend!

I would highly recommend the cottage, It made us feel everything had been thought of and provided to make our stay as relaxing as possible.
