Great base for exploring the northern lakes. Very well located, being just two minutes drive from Keswick town centre. Will be back . Reviewed by Tim5.0★Feb 2024 "On arrival we found the property easy to find and easy to access." The lodge is a fantastic well equipped holiday home. We took our pet dog Alfie and there was plenty of room to place his medium sized crate in the main living area, and an enclosed veranda for him to watch the livestock in the neighbouring field with interest! Only a matter of minutes away from Keswick on foot, we explored the whole town and surrounding area. We enjoyed it so much we have rebooked for next year. Thank you for your comments. Glad that Alfie enjoyed the view too!! Property Owner Reviewed by Barrie5.0★Nov 2023 "Excellent lodge in an ideal location for exploring the lake district." Easy walk into Keswick. Thank you. Glad you had a good time and got out and explored the area. It is a great location - 15 min walk into Keswick, and just by the A66 for routes to other parts of the Northern Lake district.

Property Owner Reviewed by Lawrence5.0★Aug 2023 "The lodge was very well equipped, clean and comfortable but the overriding smell of wet dog/dog did spoil the ambience and we spent a lot of time with our daughter and family next-door." I don’t think we will return because of this. Perhaps, cleaning the small carpets after each guest who has a dog or replacing them with laminate would alleviate the problem. The position of the site was great, with lovely views. Thank you for your feedback. The kitchen, dining and lounge areas have laminate flooring in place. Property Owner Reviewed by Joanna3.8★Jul 2023 "Lovely stay as always." Lucked out with the weather but the facilities are great and just what we needed. Its a great place to stay, even if you don't get the best of the weather! Property Owner Reviewed by Katy5.0★Jul 2023 "Great location and fabulous views from the decking." Accommodation was generally ok - kitchen was well stocked and bathroom/shower were good - but we found the bed very uncomfortable and were also disappointed in the standard of cleanliness of the outside of the Lodge. The outside of the windows were really dirty and the whole external area needed a spruce up/clean. The steps into the Lodge were steep and narrow and needed to be navigated with care. The Locksafe system was really good. Thank you for your feedback. The exteriors of the lodges are cleaned on a regular basis but not weekly - we will review this. The steps are the ones supplied by Pinelog - and don't seem any different t those in the lodges around. Next time we renew the decking we will look at this again. Property Owner Reviewed by Vicki3.8★Jul 2023 "This lodge was nice but it was not the cleanest I know it allows dogs but things ..." This lodge was nice but it was not the cleanest I know it allows dogs but things like the kitchen sink had not been cleaned the table cloth was not clean, the mop was was disgusting it needs putting in the bin, The security of the doors and windows needs updating the patio door needs a dead lock , the hoover had not been emptied for a long long time, Thank you for your feedback. We are sorry that you felt the cabin wasn't clean and wish you had told us this at the time so that the cleaner could come back and remedy the situation. We only replaced the hoover a couple of weeks before your stay so surprised on your comment about the hoover? The security in place on the cabin is in line with our insurance requirements, and matches the security on the other cabins on the site. Property Owner Reviewed by Alan2.8★Jun 2023 "Thoroughly enjoyed the cabin and would happily book again and enjoyed being able to walk into Kewsick." The only minor issues were that the metal chairs on the balcony were very uncomfortable and we had to go and buy some camping chairs to allow us to sit in comfort on the balcony and enjoy the wonderful view. The chalet could do with more cutlery and although the double bed in the master bedroom was very comfortable the single bed in the second bedroom was very uncomfortable with the springs being easily felt. But overall this was a wonderful chalet that we would recommend to friends. Thank you for your feedback. The outside furniture has just been upgraded from plastic chairs, and we haven't sat on them for long ourselves. There are some seat pads in the lounge cupboard but we will look into better ones. Although fairly new, we will look at the single bed matressess when we are on our next maintenance visit.

Property Owner Reviewed by Angela5.0★May 2023 "Really enjoyed our stay, great location and well equipped cottage." ..main and only comment really is the towels and bedding could do with refreshing. Towels were very hard and rough. Had we known we would have brought our own. We are sorry about your experience with the towels. We do inspect and replace our towels regularly. Our cleaner is line drying towels as much as possible, but perhaps we need to revisit this as it does undoubtedly produce slightly harder towels than tumble drying.

Property Owner Reviewed by Ian4.7★Nov 2022 "All great a great stay at Burnside park once more" Reviewed by Charles5.0★Nov 2022 "Located close to Keswick without being in the middle of town." A 15 -20 minute footpath walk in to town. However, when walking back at night, there is very little street lighting and non-existent at the roundabout on the A66. Advise to take a torch. There was some road noise, but it didn’t really spoil our stay, as we were out most of the time. If you wanted to sit out on a warm evening it might not be as peaceful as you would like. Property very well equipped. A cosy property and just right for the pair of us and two large dogs. Only downside for us was if the dogs needed to relieve themselves (even at 3am), it meant getting dressed, grabbing the torch and taking them up the lane, as there was no secure garden. When they did come back wet and muddy, we had the Mud Daddy with us and could hose them down outside before putting their drying towels on and giving them a good towel down on the decking, which was gated. We do put torches in the lodge; however, these prove to be very popular with guests, and don't always remain at the end of each stay. The area is quite dark around the cabin, as it is out of town. As you say the decking has a gate which provides a secure area. The grounds are communal, but dogs can be walked round them, and many do their business happily within the grounds, but will need supervising. The lodge park is conveniently situated just off the A66, so yes there is some road noise at times.

All facilities in good working order although bed a little hard. Pheasant pub is just beyond the roundabout and serves excellent food and ale. Love watching the sheep and cattle in the field.

Property Owner Reviewed by Fahad4.7★Jun 2022 "This is the second time I have sayed at glaramara and sadly it seems to have deteriorated within a year." The bed linen in the twin room smelt stale like it had been left in the washing machine too long and the room had a urine/sicky smell which reminded me of an old people's home .I appreciate it is a pet friendly lodge but the whole place did not smell fresh and didn't feel very clean which was very off putting.there was dog hair around and underneath the double bed .the towels in the double room were also hard and crispy . My first stay a year ago was lovely however we left feeling rather disappointed on this occasion and it is unlikely we will book again. I am sorry that you found Glaramara had deteriorated. The beds including mattresses in the twin room were replaced less than 4 weeks ago. Perhaps there was a new mattress smell - although we were staying at the time and didn’t notice anything? We deep cleaned the lodge before Easter including under all the beds. Our cleaner has worked for us for a long time and our feedback is normally really positive.Edit 3/6/2022 The cleaner and I inspected the twin room and there was no sign of any staining and we couldn’t detect any unpleasant smells.

Would stay again Glad you had a good stay Property Owner Reviewed by Wayne4.7★Feb 2022 "We have just returned from a 7 night stay at Glaramara." The lodge is in a lovely position with views from the rear decking and although site is close to the main busy A66 and roundabout you don’t really notice or hear the traffic. Few minutes walk into town and well worth it as street parking was a problem as busy. The lodge is very well equipped with everything you could need and comfortable and warm. Our only criticism would be to replace the tube bedroom and bathroom lighting to white light rather than yellow as a little dark to see. Also, I couldn’t find a comfortable pillow as they were all a little flat and lumpy. I would probably take my own for our future visit. Other than that lovely holiday accommodation. Many Thanks! Thank you for your feedback. We hadn't intended replacing the lights, but we will have another look at them. Property Owner Reviewed by Keith4.4★Feb 2022 "Absolutely loved our stay at Glaramara, was everything we were expecting and the surroundings were beautiful, would highly recommend." The only downside was the constant reminder I kept getting via email of everything we needed to do before we left such as take bedding off, hoover, no pots to be left out, no sign of dog hair etc the list was endless so we felt like we had to leave a day early so we could spend a good couple of hours cleaning which we did cutting out holiday short. I’m all for having a good clear up before I leave but I’ve never had so many demands when stopping anywhere previously. We have 2 dogs who also loved it but to say there can be no sign of dogs once we have left is crazy, surely that’s what cleaners are for. All we ask is for guests to leave the property as they find it. Requests to strip beds and wipe down surfaces are to minimise C-19 risks for our cleaners.

Property Owner Reviewed by Jon5.0★Jul 2021 "We've stayed at Glaramara twice before and have always been very happy with the lodge and the location." Unfortunately this time 2 weeks after we completed our holiday I am still waiting for a refund of the housing bond. We left the lodge immaculate and even offered to pay for the plastic fish slice which snapped. It was already very worn and we only used it once before it broke. I waited on the telephone last week for some time before I was told the refund would be in my account mon/tues. Yet again I waited 10 minutes on the phone earlier and gave up when nobody answered. Due to us enthusing about the property 2 sets of friends have booked Glaramara and we have another week booked in September. If I am going to have to beg for my refund each time I go there I will certainly not be booking any holidays there in the future and shall inform friends about the difficulty in getting our money back.
