  • "Lovely comfortable cottage, well equipped with all the kitchen equipment you would need, plenty of towels too."

    Logs were provided for the fire aswel as coal if needed but could do with something better than cigarette lighters to light it, like a safety gas lighter. Hot tub was great but could do with some kind of overhead cover so it's useable when raining. On the down side the economy 7 water heating was very noisy during the early hours of the morning and the hot water pressure was very low and we only managed a small trickle of water from the hot tap in the bathroom. I would advise to take torches as we had a power cut for one and have hours on one night and the neighbouring cottage said it was very common and always happens. Short walk to the White Heart pub which is worth a visit and lots of other places to visit nearby.

  • "The property was warm, but lacked comfortable chair or sofa."

    The existing sofa was a bit grubby and smelly. However the rest of the property was generally in good order. We could not open the top drawer on the freezer because it was iced up. The passing traffic entering and exiting the caravan park can be a bit loud. However the stand out feature is the hot tub, which more than balanced out, any negatives.

    Thank your for your positive comments and glad you enjoyed your stay at our property. Thank you for bringing to our attention the issue with the freezer top drawer - however there are three other large drawers in the freezer which should have been more than sufficient for your requirements. I am sorry that you found the corner, well upholstered, sofa uncomfortable and grubby. We regularly have the sofa professionally steam cleaned and have not previously had any comments about comfort. Sofas can be very like beds in that its very much a personal preference about what is comfortable and what is not. Property Owner

  • "We loved this dog friendly, very clean cottage."

    enjoyed walks directly from the cottage and is a good base to explore windermere, Ambleside and our favourite, grasmere. we would also recommend roanhead if you like a good dog friendly beach. the local pub is friendly and we can recommend the Sunday dinner which is served both lunch and evening. the hot tub was a welcomed addition after long walks the only slight niggle was being at the entrance to the caravan park. we always search for isolated cottages which this was listed as such. it is isolated but traffic in and out of the caravan park detracted from that a bit. didn't spoil anything though. we would definitely use again

    Beautiful location for nice walks. Down side was the Internet connection was poor and kept cutting out during our stay, streaming films on the TV was interrupted and mobiles kept loosing connection, we had no mobile service in the area so relied on it to contact relatives when in the property, the central heating wasn't quite enough given we came this time of year and it reached -8 at one point, we didn't have control of the central heating but could do boosts with the electric heaters and fire once I practiced how to use it lol, the hot tube wasn't at temperature for the first night but got to use for the rest of the week with no issue, good communication with the owners who were helpful and prompt, overall lovely property just got caught out with the cold and snowy weather

Think worth making it clear there is a small but well used road that leads to the caravan park, it wasn’t an issue for us and was lovely and quiet at night but quite busy in day. Double bed quite small so very little room to move about and shower door was rather fragile, often coming off it’s runners, again not a big issue but may bother some. Garden could do with a little TLC but we don’t mind the natural look. Overall a lovely relaxing place to stay

    Beautiful location and Lodge looks fantastic. We had a lovely time. However, Lodge was not clean. When we arrived, there was an empty juice bottle left under the table, the sofa area particularly dirty - i dropped the TV remote under the sofa and it was covered in filth when I picked it up. Hot tub was great but few jets kept falling out

    I am really glad you found the Lodge amazing – we also believe it’s a truly special and amazing place and one in which we take immense pride. It is also a property that we routinely receive 100% feedback on across all criteria. However, I was disappointed to see your comments about cleanliness. The property has been cleaned by the same family member since we commenced as a holiday let in 2014 and over the years we have received many positive comments about the cleanliness. It is disappointing that if you had issues with the cleaning that you didn’t pick these up with me or Sykes during the stay when we would have been able to look into them and address them whilst you were there. I have since reached out to you via email following receipt of your comments, which were only received after your stay, but have not had any response from you. Property Owner

    The Cottage is decorated to a high standard, with a modern fully equipped kitchen and bathroom. The underfloor heating was nice and hot. Nice touch to have a pint of milk waiting for us (and a bottle of red wine). The hot tub was great and nice to sit on the decking having a coffee in the sun. The owners supplied plenty of towels, so you dont need to bring any. Tea towels, toilet role and kitchen cleaning stuff provided, which was a pleasant surprise. The only downside is the dog friendly approach. Not the owners fault, but clearly some customers have had their dogs on the settee. When we arrived it smelt very doggy for a few days. The rug in front was worse, so we removed it up onto the mezzanine area for the week. A few more coats hooks by the door would be useful. There is a cupboard in the bedroom containing the cleaning stuff, again it smelt so we removed the mop. Maybe having storage outside would be better and this could be converted into more storage space. I am being picky, but if you are not a dog person, this could ruin your week. Not the owners fault, so a message to all you other renters, please abide by the rules and make it 100% for all.

    The accommodation was excellent and what we expected it to be. However, I have now come to realise that 'dogs welcome' does not necessarily mean 'dog friendly'. There was practically no outdoor space for our dog and what there was wasn't secure. There was constant traffic to and from the caravan site - which we knew nothing about until a week before the holiday - not only did the vehicles go back and forth over 2 cattle grids, it passed within 2 metres of the windows. 6 metres away was the passing road which was busy with cars travelling a minimum 30 mph and certainly many travelling a lot faster. Certainly not the secluded lodge we were led to believe it was. All said the weekend was okay, just not as relaxing as we thought it would be. Fairly it was between 'failed' and met our expectations.

    It is absolutely beautiful there. The cottage is extremely comfortable, clean, spacious and cosy. We love walking and there are amazing walks on your doorstep! The hottub is great after a day of rambling and there is a small patio area in the back garden, which is lovely to sit upon and look at the beautiful surrounding hills. This time we got to take our dog with us and he loved it there just as much as we did! The White Hart pub is just a 10 minute walk away from the cottage and is lovely to sit outside with a drink, they also have seating to the rear of the of the pub. If you take a short drive to Greenodd, they do amazing fish and chips there that stay warm until you are back at the cottage. Hawkshead is one of favourite places in the Lake District, from here you can climb Latterbarrow, there are two routes up this hill, one is quite steep but the other is much easier but do take care. The views are beautiful when you get to the top. Be sure to also look at the walks in the guest book at the cottage - the owners have included some great ones in there! All in all, the owners of this cottage are great! Nothing is too much trouble and are always on hand to help. I can't imagine anyone not loving their stay here. We will certainly return again!

    On arrival the hot water supply was insufficient with a slow trickle out the tap which fortunately was recifyed by my husband as he is a plumber. There wasn't any firelighters or newspaper to light the log burner. The hot tub was luke warm. We informed the owner of our findings and we were informed that the water in the hot tub may have been changed and would increase in temperature over the next few hours, which is fair enough but it would have been useful to have be informed of this information. We felt our other concerns were disregarded. We eventually managed to light the log burner using some toilet paper! There wasn't any safety gloves available when using the log burner as specified so had to use an oven glove. The logs were detailed as being included in the rental and then were asked for a contribution to keep the log store asesthetically pleasing, when there was only one shelf partially full not all the shelves as seen in the photos.The cottage its self was comfortable and in a good location to visit the lakes but unfortunately these niggles over road the positives. We've stayed in several lodges but unfortunately this wasn't our best experience and for us it lacked any wow factor!

  • "Lovely little cottage, perfect for a lake distric break for two."

    Having the hot tub and log burner to come back to was a dream. Even milk and a bottle of wine left as a welcome gift from the owners. Fantastic break despite the very soggy weather!

  • "Property was very clean, comfortable, well equipped and finished to a high standard."

    Log fire fuel included in the price and complimentary milk and bottle of wine when we arrived. The owner provided all the information required etc. An excellent location, remote but only a few minutes drive from main roads or a short walk from the village pub. Hot tub in small but private garden was great. There is also a small patio up a few steps which gives lovely relaxing views. Thoroughly enjoyed staying here and would highly recommend.

The property

Newby Bridge 4 miles.

This wonderful, stone-built detached cottage is located on the outskirts of the pretty village of Bouth, which has a traditional inn and is just four miles from Newby Bridge.

This contemporary holiday home boasts superb furnishings and is set in an ideal location for discovering the Lake District, as well as the charming villages of Cartmel and Grange-over-Sands.

The cottage boasts a stylish finish throughout and the cosy open plan living area has a woodburning stove.

There is a superb bathroom and a comfortable bedroom with a large window, views across the river to Gummer's How and an external door leading out to a secluded patio, with a hot tub and steps to an elevated decked area.

Settle outside on the elevated patio and admire the views, or simply sit back and enjoy the quiet location before taking a gentle walk into the village.

An abundance of walks and cycle routes are available right from the doorstep, whilst the Lake District fells, Grizedale Forest, Lake Windermere and Coniston Water are nearby.

Why not travel over to Cartmel and visit the shop where the original sticky toffee pudding is sold?

This charming village is also well known for its superb restaurants and pubs and of course, the ancient Priory.

A drive up the pretty Rusland Valley will take you to the quaint village of Hawkshead and to Hill Top, where Beatrix Potter lived and was inspired to write many of her charming tales.

From here you can also catch the car ferry and cruise across Lake Windermere to discover the vibrant lakeside towns of Bowness-on-Windemere and Ambleside.

A stay in this delightful corner of Cumbria will ensure a perfect romantic retreat at any time of the year.

About the location


Bowness-on-Windermere 8 miles.

The small village of Newby Bridge takes its name from the five arched stone bridge built in 1651 over the River Leven. The famous Furness Railway, one of Britain's oldest working standard gauge steam railways, runs between Haverthwaite and Newby Bridge. Visit the Lakeside Hotels and enjoy magnificent views across Windermere and the surrounding fells, or enjoy the Aquarium of the Lakes, where the naturally themed habitats, bring the history of the Lakes vividly to life. Bowness-on-Windermere provides a lovely day out, plus the picturesque village of Hawkshead still retains the charm and character that so endeared it to its most famous residents - William Wordsworth and Beatrix Potter, and admire the views at nearby Gummer's How.
