  • "We really enjoyed our stay here in March."

    The site is very quiet and secluded. We took our 5 month old Labrador on his first holiday and he loved it.There were 4 adults for the first two night and it was a bit of a squeeze in the living space. Two enclosed decking areas with furniture if the weather allows. Large garden which isn’t enclosed. Very relaxing holiday and would go again.

  • "What a fantastic holiday lodge!"

    A perfect setting with everything you could need. The ideal location for sightseeing or as a relaxing, quiet and peaceful haven for those rainy days that make the Lake District so beautiful and green! We would love to go back, but according to the Sykes website the lodge is unavailable until 2026!

    Thanks so much for your kind comments Philip. We will be releasing more blocks of availability soon .. once we figure out our own plans for the rest of the year and 2025! Best wishes, Mark Property Owner

  • "Absolutely lovely lodge, extremely comfortable and well equipped with everything we needed."

    The beds were super comfy and bed linen and towels of a high quality. Loved the balcony leading from the main bedroom and even managed to sit out and have a glass of wine even though it was February. Would definitely recommend this lodge.

    Thanks so much Scott. Pleased that you enjoyed your stay! Mark Property Owner

  • "We returned a short time after we stayed last as we really love the place."

    The lodge, the site just the entire experience is priceless. Even though the temperature dipped outside the lodge was so comfortable and warm we didn’t care. The surroundings are so peaceful and the general vibe from the place is outstanding. The owner Mark is always there should you have any queries and he’s created a lovely serene haven which for us, combats manic world. Wonderful bolt hole. We’ve already rebooked!!

    Thanks again for your lovely comments Mike. Best wishes, Mark Property Owner

  • "First time going to the Lakes in years but what a choice it turned out to be."

    As described in the listings but so much more. Beautiful setting and surroundings. We went for peace and quiet and got that in abundance. The lodge was really comfortable and every query we had was answered by Mark in a flash. I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending the lodge or location. Absolutely first class. So good that we booked to return the very next month. We’ve found a gem.

    Thank you so much for your kind comments! Really pleased that you had a good time and that you are coming back! Mark Property Owner

  • "First guests."

    ...what an honour! Well- totally fabulous place to stay, quiet & peaceful. Perfect location. The lodge is cosy & plush, equipped to a very high standard, with absolutely everything we needed. Mark & Dee were very thoughtful hosts- making sure I had all the details needed for arrival & checking everything was ok. We have had such a lovely stay & we will most certainly be back to stay again ASAP.

The property

Bay Tree Lodge is a refurbished lodge situated in a quiet park, just under a mile from the quaint medieval priory village of Cartmel.

It is just six miles from the southerly tip of Lake Windemere in the beautiful Lake District, and with easy access to the whole of the south and west Lakes, where you can explore the majestic fells, ancient woodlands and serene lakes.

This contemporary property is a wonderful choice for families, friends or couples looking for a break away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life in this beautiful quiet corner of Cumbria. The open-plan living space is the social hub of the lodge, equipped with a well-appointed kitchen and dining area.

Unwind on the sofa by the woodburning stove, complimented by a smart TV with Freeview and Netflix.

You can also relax on the sheltered sun decks, south and west-facing, surrounded by a private garden.

The short walk to Cartmel enables you to enjoy the dog-friendly pubs with great food, real ales, and Live Music on the weekends.

The village also boasts two Michelin star restaurants under the famous chef, Simon Rogan, and a third near by (Heft) in the village of High Newton.

The rural horse racing course adds another dimension, with nine race meetings a year.

The bustling towns of the Lake District; Kendal, Bowness on Windermere, Ambleside and Coniston are all within easy reach, and rich in tourist attractions.

Expect all this and more at Bay Tree Lodge.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £100.
