  • "A very comfortable and well appointed lodge in a quiet location with a great view of Latrigg."

    We enjoyed the variety of birds on the feeder and the wildlife in the field which included red squirrels, rabbits and, on one occasion, a deer. An enjoyable and relaxing holiday, despite the mixed weather.

  • "Absolutely loved our stay and didn't want to come home."

    Lodge has everything needed for a relaxing break in The Lakes and fitted our party of 4 well although is kitted out for 6. Short walk to Keswick meant car could stay put. The views to Skiddaw range were amazing with a sense of achievement after walking them direct from the door. Great to see how the weather impacted the look of the scenery. Loved the visits from the birds - including the pheasant and watching the 3 random sheep and horse. Would have no hesitation in recommending Burr Ghyll and I'll definitely be looking to stay again.

    Well equipped with everything you would need. The site is in a very good position for visiting other places in the area Ambleside,Cockermouth,Derwentwater etc Walking distance from Keswick. My daughter even walked and climbed to the top of Skiddaw from the lodge and back. We had a brilliant time hope to be back.

    Everything and more you could possibly wish for could be found in the kitchen . Well kept and cared for throughout. A comfy living room and bedrooms. But of course the main selling point of this lodge is the decking area and the views of the surrounding hills can't be beaten . The location of the park is ideal for anyone wanting gto explore the area. Thank you for letting us stay here again . We will be back.

  • "Mostly the lodge was alright but share a previous review that the 3 piece suite could be updated."

    Also the duvet on the double bed should be replaced as it was noisy when there was any movement which I found a bit annoying . Having said that we all enjoyed our holiday and wish to thank you .

    The duvets in Burr Ghyll are all 3 in 1 feather/down type duvets. We inspect all our bedding regularly and replace when/if damaged. Likewise, we inspect our furniture regularly. We stay ourselves several times a year in Burr Ghyll and the lounge suite is extremely comfortable (even reclines) even if it is aesthetically old fashioned. Property Owner

  • "An excellent holiday lodge."

    Nicely positioned within easy walk of Keswick facilities, yet on a small quiet site with great views of the fells and good parking. A couple of neighbouring "energetic" kids were tamed at the start. Refurbished to a high standard the lodge had all the facilities you would ever need, with a comprehensive guide on use of all equipment. We will definately return and recommend Burr Ghyll lodge. Thanks

    Thank you for your feedback. Generally it is a quiet site, although it is popular with families in holiday season. I would like your tips on taming children as I might be able to use on my own! ;) Property Owner
