  • "My friend and I found the property very well appointed, comfortable and clean."

    There was one issue about which we contacted the owners. The extractor fan for the family bathroom does not activate automatically when one turns on the light. We were told that one has to press the switch above the door which is very high up. My friend could just about reach it but I could not. I don't think many people would guess its location without enquiring. Before knowing this I was concerned that the bathroom would eventually succumb to damp issues! Also the shower, if left on the hook, floods the bathroom as the pressure is so powerful the water bounces off the opposite wall onto the floor! Probably the fitting of the shower needs adjusting so as the water flows downwards. I unhooked it when using the shower so as I could control the direction of flow. A stool of some kind could be useful in the lodge for those of us who are not 6ft blokes! A few more mugs would be useful, especially for a party of 4. Oh, and one last thing. The sheep at the bottom of the drive is missing her lamb. What has happened to it? Great place, I will recommend it to anyone who wishes to stay somewhere quiet in the Cartmel area. Regards Hilary Wileman x

    Thank you for your feedback, we will endeavour to check the controls on the shower head as we have not had this issue reported before. If we can’t reduce the pressure we will try a different head. I am glad you enjoyed your stay. Thank you for choosing fern lodge Property Owner

  • "I’m reluctant to give a good review as I don’t want more competition to book this fabulous lodge in the future!"

    The lodge is spacious, very clean and tastefully decorated and designed. The exterior is in our view better than the pictures suggest with the location of the lodge perfect for evening sun and very private. The hot tub is an excellent addition. The lodge location is spot on; a quiet location on the outskirts of Cartmel which has so much to it including a great breakfast (and cheese shop!). Helen and Mark are friendly, welcoming and accommodating. On top of all this, the sun shone all week! If you’re looking for somewhere to stay for a family of four in the south part of the Lakes, you’ll struggle to find a better lodge than this.

    Thank you for your lovely feedback. I am glad you liked the style and design of our lodge. The site is very peaceful as you have said. We look forward to seeing you back later in the year. Glad you eventually visited the very lovely Cartmel Helen and Mark Property Owner

Allithwaite and Cartmel 1 mile.
