Visit Badger's Way if you want a holiday to remember! Our lodge provides guests with the opportunity to enjoy watching badgers at close proximity - a few inches away on the other side of the French windows!! Magical evenings - great for families!'Badger's Way' is a modern, privately owned, two bedroom lodge, situated at Limefitt, a 5 star countryside park, nestling quietly in the fells near Lake Windermere, yet not far from the bustling towns of Ambleside and Bowness.
The lodge will comfortably accommodate up to four people and an infant but unfortunately we cannot accept dogs or pets, due to family allergies.Badger watching is our speciality! Peanuts can be put out on the floodlit verandah and the nightly escapades of the badgers are truly awesome! Both adults and children have spoken about the excitement and privilege of watching these lovely creatures.
The lodge is an ideal base for nature lovers, walkers, families and those who simply want to relax and soak up the beautiful scenery here. At the end of the day, nothing can beat an evening sitting on the verandah, with a glass of wine perhaps, relaxing, listening to the beck nearby and watching the stars!
The Lodge is modern, light and spacious with everything you could possibly need, for a stay in the heart of the English Lake District. From our large windows, there are beautiful views of the Troutbeck Valley and surrounding fells.
