Just stayed here for 3 nights on a last minute break after the xmas/new year period. What an amazing place, the location of the lodges is absolutely fabulous, right on the shore of Bassenthwaite lakes. It is so peaceful here, our dog Alfie loved it,a large field for him to run wild in, and the bonus of a large lake...

I treated my partner as a surprise for his birthday with some of his friends. What a beautiful place. Great place for walking and relaxing. Not much on site but great for peace and quiet. Hot tub was amazing. No bar on site the nearest bar you could walk to but in winter it's very dark so not advisable.

The lodge was clean and the living / kitchen area was quite spacious. The location was also very easy to explore surround areas with short car journeys to Keswick...
