It was one of the best lodges we have ever stayed in and it had everything and more ! The lodge was so beautifully decorated and it had lovely games and DVDs which my boys loved! I loved waking up to watch red squirrels, a woodpecker, and pheasants from the bedroom window. We found a lovely pathway through the woods where we saw a fox and deer. The lodge is in the most beautiful surroundings. We loved Keswick and Windermere with beautiful walks. Eric was so helpful and kind and provided us with all the information we needed and more. We hope to come back next year. Thank you for sharing your beautiful lodge.
