  • "The rooms were lovely and clean, however the kitchen and dining areas were not as we would have expected."

    The refrigerators were not cleaned properly with dried milk in the vegetable containers. Table tops and floors were not really clean. We had a cleaner come in to clean all surfaces before we could use them. The owner found us a lady to help out in the kitchen and she made our holiday experience wonderful. Without Caroline, we would have spent most of our time filling and emptying dishwashers! Thank you for finding her. The owner promptly send us a plumber to fix a problem in one of the bathrooms. Bedroom number 1 gets only lukewarm water. I suggest this be looked into for future guests

    Thank you for your feedback. We are taking this feedback on board and I have already had conversations with the cleaning provider and make sure that the cleaning issues raised by this guests will not repeat themselves. As this guest also says we try to respond to any issue as quickly as we can but it is a large house and little problems can happen, although we try to preempt them to the degree we can. Anyway, we are happy that Caroline did a good job and that the guests overall had a wonderful holiday experience. Property Owner

  • "We had a fabulous week at this house."

    As a group of 23 it had everything and more for us all to enjoy. Every room is big enough to accommodate a large group and the kitchen was stocked to the highest of standards. The hot tub, sauna and games room were very well utilised and enjoyed by us all. The surrounding area of Bardsea is picturesque with some stunning walks along the coast and in the hills. All in all we had a wonderful stay and we will definitely return.

  • "Well equipt, spotlessly clean, well equipped, warm, comfortable, stylish and spacious."

    Perfect accomodation for a big party plenty of places for people to have their own space, ensuites in each room, plenty of room for everyone to sit, cook, relax and not get under each others feet. We all really enjoyed our stay!

    We are always happy to hear that Eden Lodge is a place where people can interact with each other in a beautiful environment whilst at the same time having enough space to withdraw as we all need a little bit of time away. This is the kind of harmony of life we love for ourselves. And if all of this is supported by a location where nature is alive and inspiring then you cannot ask for more. Property Owner

  • "Fabulous place to stay, we were a large family gathering."

    It was warm and cosy, well equipped, clean and comfortable, with everything we needed. 22 people in the party and there was plenty of space for us all. We all had a great weekend from the youngest (4) to the oldest (83) and we would definitely recommend the property and would certainly book again.

  • "A perfect property for a large family or group of friends, with a really well equipped kitchen, lots of space and lots to do - we loved the outside hot tub, sauna and games room."

    All of the bedrooms were spacious and clean with nice furnishings and modern bathrooms. The location of the property makes it easy to find, yet it is really quiet with beautiful views. Our only suggestion for improvement was that the heating in the bedrooms was quite hard to regulate - some of them were very warm (much better than being too cold, though). However, this was a minor point and we would stay again and recommend the property to others.

    This accommodation is perfect for a large group. There was plenty of space in the house and the outside space was fantastic too. Beds were so comfortable but rooms can get very warm. Wifi connection isn't the best but wasn't a huge problem for us. Ulverston is a lovely town and about a 2 mile walk away. I would definitely go back again.

    The bed in Room 5 needs changing. The light at the top of the stairs on right next to the window flashes all night. Could do with more mugs.There was only one extra key, not three. Otherwise it was great and we will be back again sometime

  • "Eden Lodge is located in a strategically great part of the Lakes with lots to do in the area whatever the weather."

    The Lodge itself is set in delightful grounds, with a large car park, external sauna and hot tub facilities - which were incidentally were checked during our stay by their efficient and friendly staff. The games room was very popular with my grand children! The owners have gone to a lot of trouble to make sure that the facilities are ideal and can cope with large numbers of occupants. The kitchen is excellent and well provided with an extensive cooker range, large capacity fridges and two dish washers - all of which worked very well for us. The bedrooms are well appointed, bright and airy with excellent en suite showers. I booked Eden Lodge as a surprise birthday present for my wife and had 14 adults, 4 children and a baby staying. It worked perfectly with plenty of space for all. My guests very much enjoyed their stay and I would return at the first opportunity.

  • "Such a great venue for a big celebration."

    So relaxing and comfortable and plenty of space. We did several walks straight from the house, played games in the grounds and having the coast so close was lovely. We’d love to go again. Only minor concern for the group that there seemed no facilities for recycling - being a big group we had plenty! Some advice on supporting this would have been helpful. Otherwise - perfect!

  • "Lovely venue for a large family gathering."

    Lovely weather! Smaller points are- 1 window in the conservatory is broken and nearly impossible to shut (note left about these things for cleaners) The dishwashers are nearly impossible to work, they were not responding to buttons when we arrived and needed a factory re-set, then with a large number of people it took most of the way through the week before people stopped opening them part-way though (as is OK for most dishwashers) Not enough spoons for soup and dessert for each person, not enough forks for each person not enough teaspoons, not enough mixing bowls, not enough chopping boards, not enough cafetieres, the bath in room 8 would not empty without the plug being held up. The carpet behind the reception desk is stopping the door there being opened and that is damaging the carpet. The particulars say there is a lockable bike shed- but when we rang we were told there is not. There was good support when we rang about a fault with the fire alarm. Please correct these small details No need to publish the little details re spoons etc.

    The heating did not appear to be working on several bedrooms and one radiator was leaking some guests were complying they were freezing through the night The original hot tub was broken a new one brought in but was way to small a lot smaller than original one and did not fit all guests. There was carpet coming away behind the door near the bar in living area so when u opened the door it lifted a large piece of carpet and the door bounced back it hit one of our party members in the face! There was no kitchen appliances in the apartment with the kitchen so what was the point in Avon the kitchen?? I was going to email this information today or put on trip advisor but I will give you the opportunity to reply. I have taken photos of the carpet and the lady birds in the bedrooms! Thank you

  • "Property was excellent, great range of facilities and very comfortable."

    Lovely location The only slight negative was that we asked if a late check out would be possible, we were told no as cleaners needed to go in on the Sunday morning which is fair enough but then found the property was not booked again until the following weekend. Then had to chase deposit being returned, was told Sykes were waiting for cleaners to go in and confirm everything ok (3 days after we left). So contradictory information from Sykes who denied the owner the opportunity of a late check out fee.

  • "Amazing place."

    Very clean and new feel to all the sheets, towels etc.. variety of room types that suited the different needs of our guests. Lovely view and a short walk to the bay. I loved the big tables in the dining room room that meant 20+ people could eat together. Also plenty of crockery and cutlery. We had a fabulous time and I’d go back tomorrow if I could! The only thing I would change is the dish washers could be improved. A lot of things needed reeashing by hand. Also the sauna was not available.

  • "This holiday did exceed expectations in every area except for the kitchen."

    It seems a shame to have missed the highest rating because of a lack of mugs, serving bowls, small glasses for soft drinks. The chopping knives were all blunt and the wine glasses and the dinner plates were too large for the dishwasher. Although at first we thought this was a minor niggle, it turned out to be extremely irritating every time we had a meal and therefore reduce our satisfaction with the property every day.

    Reviewed by MarkAug 2018

  • "As we had 25 people staying there was at times a shortage of mugs due to many being in the dishwasher."

    Again as the house was full with people staying in the top flat it was felt there could be more drawer space for clothes. Items had to be left on the floor. The one set of drawers provided were each divided into 3, so no large item could be put in them. A problem with the shower in one of the rooms meant that people in that room did not have this facility for 3 days. However we were impressed that there was a visit from a Handyman at 10.30pm and each day letting us have a progress report until repaired. A comment was also made that there were no electric shaver points near a mirror. Also the shower trays were not slip proof so perhaps a slip mat could be provided. Ample parking. A small notice on the cupboard door indicating the Isolator Switch for the Cookers would have saved a call out when we inadvertently turned it off. Luckily we had finished cooking and the ovens were not needed again that day. We and all our guests thoroughly enjoyed the stay.

About the location


Ulverston 2 miles.

Set on a hill looking across to Morecambe Bay is the small village of Bardsea. This remote area grew from a small fishing village and farming area into a major transportation link for coal, iron ore and corn. No longer a vital port, Bardsea still retains its fishing heritage, and features a pub serving fine ales and good food. The village is close to spectacular Furness Abbey, while the ancient market town of Ulverston is just 2 miles away, and still has a street market every Thursday and Saturday, plus many festivals throughout the year, including an amazing lantern procession in September and a superb Dickensian weekend in early December. With all the attractions of the Lake District National Park, beaches and good birdwatching of the Furness coast close by, this peaceful and quiet area has plenty to offer.
