  • "Fallbarrow park is just amazing."

    This was our third visitbut first time at Acorn Lodge. The location of the lodge was fantastic. It was very homely, with all home comforts provided. The hot tub was brilliant. There was a foisty damp smell in the ensuite shower, but a diffuser had been added to try and mitigate the odour as I am sure the owner is aware. The shower is not very good in the ensuite, but that didn't affect the holiday. Complimentary prosecco was a lovely touch. Thanks very much.

    Only negative is from my teenage kids over the wifi for the park being very weak and unusable, but not sure whether that was even included with this lodge, so if not please ignore! :)

  • "We were disappointed with the second bedroom as it was tiny and the 2 sofa's in the lounge were a bit small for 4 people."

    Apart from that all lovely. Probably wouldn't book this lodge again as noisy near the playground and lots of people walking past at all hours (3.30am)!

  • "The lodge is in a great location, well equipped, laid out well and nicely done."

    Hot tub is great and well maintained. We arrived to a bottle of prosecco wgich was a really nice touch. There was a bit if a damp smell which seems to be a common theme in feedback on this lodge which hasn't been addressed by the looks of it but other than that clean and no complaints. Few things to mention, I would say getting in at 4pm is a tad late and would recommend 3pm entry. You will only allow 1 dog. I have 2 small old dogs trained that would of loved to enjoy our family break but despite allowing you to select 2 dogs at booking stage its 1 dog stated in the small print. Also we had dinner only once on site at the restaurant. Firstly they stop food at 2030 which I think is very early and secondly I would say 75/80% of the menu wad unavailable but thats for parkdeans to resolve .

  • "Acorn bank Lodge wasn’t clean and would have expected much better cleanliness due to COVID-19, had to wash both bath and en suite shower before use."

    Had to wash the bedding in double room as had marks on it to find the quilt was also the same in-fact had a lot of stains on it. Wardrobe hadn't been cleaned, had to wipe down and surface hadn’t been wiped for a long time was thick in black dirt so refused to use and had to live out of suitcase for the stay. The lodge had a horrible smell in what I can only describe as damp. In the en-suite bathroom they was water all over the floor not sure if it was a leak from the toilet or leak from the sealant in the shower had to put the hand towel given on the floor to soak it up. Lodge overall needs a lot of TLC and have previously read this on a past review so thought these issues would have been sorted. Disappointed in the restaurant didn’t serve breakfast all week waitress said we should have received an email but no email received also one waiter was funny with grand parents about ordering at the bar or waiter serving at the table, the app wouldn’t work on my phone and was told to let staff know however he insisted he looked at it why would we lie about this also couldn’t use my grandads as he is nearly 70 as isn’t up to speed on technology and doesn’t have a smart phone, I understand the rules because of COVID-19 but it is how he was. Previously we stayed at buttermere lodge and we thought we would try this one but we won’t choose it again and was disappointed with site for reasons above, in 2019 we had an overall amazing stay and that’s why we revisited but this time is wasn’t like that even down to the take over of the restaurant.

  • "Lovely stay, lodge was nice, tidy."

    Hottub maintained daily which was nice to know although we didn't end up using it. steps leading up a little bit awkward all different heights but manageable. Location is central to all different places driving and walking, step out of site turn right 2 min walk and into bottom half of the town. Facilities on site good. Walk round corner from Lodge little sitting area on the lake with a lovely view. Have booked again for next year but have chosen different lodge which is facing the lake purley for the views. Other wise Acorn is a nice lodge. Booked Same site and company.

  • "Lovely lodge however we didn’t find the second bedroom large enough for 2 adults."

    Also the dog field was tiny so again for us we didn’t find it suitable for our spaniel. Would recommend the lodge for its fab location but for a family with 2 children not for 4 adults.

    Thank you for your feedback. We are sorry you found the second bedroom not big enough for your needs on this occasion. We do have a large selection of lodges and our reservation team would be happy to help advise should you wish to arrange another stay. The park facilities are managed by Parkdean Resorts and we will pass your comments across to them regarding the dog walking area. Property Owner

  • "We arrived at Fallbarrow the day after our wedding as we were staying for a week for 9ur honeymoon."

    It was our first stay at Fallbarrow and was slightly tarred by Boris's lockdown announcements! However the staff at the front desk were more than helpful with all our queries. The lodge was definitely a "Top End" affair with all the bells and whistles, a lovely electric fireplace, skylights and a piping hot hot tub that was nice and secluded due to the elevated decking.

  • "We had a wonderful time at fallbarrow park, we stay at fallbarrow on a regular basis, but we have not stayed at Acorn Bank Lodge before, we often use to walk past the lodge and comment how nice it is."

    On arrival we noticed how clean and covid safe the lodge was. Very spacious, modern and plenty of storage room, it's clear the lodge is well looked after. The lodge is dog friendly but no trace of any previous dogs staying their. There was a lovely decking area which is on 2 levels, table, chairs and hot tub on top level, so it was very private. The hot tub was a very welcome addition, and very relaxing. We took our 2 small dogs with us and they loved it, decking area was gated and safe, so our dogs couldn't get out. I just want to say thank you for letting us stay at the lodge and we can't wait to return, also what a lovely gesture leaving us a bottle of wine on arrival. What did you enjoy most about your stay?

  • "The lodge is well kitted out and in a great location with everything you need."

    It cannot be faulted in this respect. HOWEVER, the booking time sated I could not arrive until 4pm and it ended up 4:30 by the time we got to the lodge and gain access. Half the day is wasted so by time you unpack etc its a wasted day. The reasons stated were for "deep cleaning" because of coronavirus. I can categorically say that this lodge was not deep cleaned. It did not smell like it had and marks on cups, bedding etc would also suggest it had not. Now I am not normally bothered about things like marks on cups and stuff like that because it has to be lived in and cleaners cannot make everything perfect so its totally fine and acceptable. My grievance is because I effectively lose half a day because I am told it has to be super cleaned because of contamination risks only to find I've been told porky pies (lies) because this was not the case. I also had to request cleaning items as nothing was there like mops, disinfectant, bin bags, standard things essentially. So essentially I would say this: If you expect guests to check in late and leave early then you should really do what you say and deep clean the lodge. What did you enjoy most about your stay?

    The park itself is in a perfect location only minutes away from bowness. The lodge itself is well maintained, has all the necessities needed for cooking etc and keeping the lodge clean. The washing machine was an added bonus that isn't usually found in these types of lodge but with 2 young children on a rainy weekend was essential! The bottle of wine on arrival was a lovely touch. The location if the lodge on the park is good, not too far from the entrance and high up so you can enjoy the hot tub without being overlooked. The umbrella covering the hot tub was a well thought out added extra as it meant we could enjoy it despite the rain. The television is listed as a smart tv but we couldn't get the smart features to work as it wasnt connected to the internet but it had freeview so we could use that instead. Its definitely worth a visit and we would return. What did you enjoy most about your stay? The location and the hot tub.

    Unfortunate with the weather as despite the fact we had a record summer it rained all 7 days we were there!!! That said we still had a lovely holiday and the location of the lodge was perfect. The clubhouse was handy for live sport and keeping the kids entertained and having lake access from the park was great. The lodge was comfortable and had everything we needed for our stay. The hot tub was HOT and very relaxing - which made up for the weather! The only down side was that we had a leak which went through to the inside of our wardrobe and wet some of our clothes. At first we weren't sure that it was just water as there were some tubs full of liquid on top of the wardrobes, After a couple of days the wet patches were still on out clothes and had not dried at all and so we thought they may have been stained but after getting home the patches have washed out so all is good.

    Mrs Tracy MageeSep 2017

  • "We totally loved our stay at Acorn Bank last week."

    The location is one that we have wanted to try for a number of years and we weren't disappointed. Best was that we could walk down to the lake in a minute, and walk into Bowness to wander round. We didn't use the car all weekend! We even went on a couple of lovely walks, one included the car ferry across Windermere which we didn't know existed! The lodge itself was elevated really well (shallow stairs meant you had to concentrate when walking up the stairs, but you soon got used to them!) so you didn't feel overlooked whatsoever, and the views were lovely. The hot tub was the deal clincher for the booking and we weren't disappointed as it was the perfect end to each day with tired feet from all that walking! (the Hot Tub wasn't working when we got there, but we worked it out, and called a very helpful man whose number we got from the lodges manual and even though he didn't look after that lodge any longer he was happy to talk us through it on a Friday evening - great service!). When we arrived it was so nice to have a VERY clean lodge waiting for us, and an extra special touch was the bottle or Prosecco waiting ready with a couple of wine glasses out - thank you! The lodge was immaculate and very well looked after - couldn't fault the cleanliness, and I am picky! Loved it - thank you so much for a fantastic break! What did you enjoy most about your stay? location of the lodge AND the lodge park What one experience (e.g attraction, walk, day out) would you recommend for our future guests? Walk to the marina, car ferry over Windermere, and walk around there - lovely!

    Mrs Tina HumeFeb 2017

  • "We had a lovely stay at Acorn bank lodge."

    The lodge itself was spotless and had everything you needed for a self catering break. You are aloud to take dogs to this lodge, we didn't but you wouldn't know any one did it was that clean. This was the only lodge on the park with a hot tub. It was excellent and a fantastic way to relax after nice day out. There was building work going on opposite the lodge that we were told about before we went but this did not spoil our break and didn't even know they were there, the work men we seen were always polite and let on. The location was excelent with just a small walk into town and the bus stop. We went to a few of the local pubs and the food and drinks were very good. The only negative I could give and it would be picking is that the lodge had a lot of steps to get in. It didn't bother us but for an older couple it could be a problem. Overall I would recommend this lodge and we would definitely go back ourselves. Thank you for a lovely stay David and Jen What did you enjoy most about your stay? Location and the hot tub.

The lodge is in a great location with both Bowness and Windermere Village being accessible on foot, we didn't use the car all weekend. I would definitely recommend the lodge and we shall revisit. The hot tub is lovely to relax in after a day out. The only downside of this visit was that the touring pitches adjacent to the lodge were currently being made into hard standing pitches for lodges and the children's playground was out of action.

    We have stayed at many other lodges but this one has to be the most comfortable. The lodge is always clean and tidy, with good quality fixtures and fittings. The main thing is that all the beds are comfortable, everything works in the kitchen, all the furniture is of a high quality and the location is great. Everything is to a very high standard and I would have no hesitation in recommending this lodge for a great holiday. Unfortunately, due to the terrible weather we were stuck in the lodge for nearly three days, this could have been a problem in the last lodge we stayed in but it just goes to show how great this lodge is that 2 Adults, a teenager and a dog were happy to be stuck indoors together!!

    One of the best lodges we have stayed in. The owners have thought of everything you need to the smallest detail for a self catering holiday. The lodge has such a lovely position on Fallbarrow Park and the car when parked need never be moved until the end of your stay, as Windermere attractions are on the door step.

A couple of minutes stroll from the Lake the lodge is well equipped, comfortable, clean, private and has the bonus of the hot tub.

  • "We have just returned from a long weekend at Acorn Bank Lodge."

    What a fantastic holiday! The booking and arrangements for the lodge once again went smoothly thanks to Lake District Holiday Lodges. I would honestly not consider booking a lodge through anyone else. On arrival ours was one of only a few lodges that had been cleaned and was ready for occupation. The lodge is modern, clean and comfortable - you can tell the owners really care about your experience at their lodge, even down to them leaving recommendations of where to eat and shop locally. The Lodge is well equipped, great tv's, showers and a fantastic hot tub. Best of all for us they accept well behaved dogs. The lodge is situated just across from the restaurant/bar/shop area which is very handy and not noisy at all. Fallbarrow Park is lovely, with a great fenced in dog exercise area and just a few minutes walk from the centre of Bowness. We cannot wait to return in August!!

    And it was head and shoulders above anything we have stayed in before. The lodge was spotless, every amenity you could think of was provided. And the hot tub was just something else. The only thing is if you have little ones, trying to carry the buggy upstairs to the lodge when there asleep is a bit precarious. Bit I'll definitely be back. A big thank you to the owners for allowing is to stay.

    Mr Adam ScorfieldMar 2016

  • "This is an amazing place to stay."

    We arrived and could see that the lodge had been cleaned to an excellent standard. The lodge had everything that you needed to enjoy your holiday. The Lodge is situated on a perfect location, close to Windermere. We loved the hot tub and used it on a daily basis. We stayed at Acorn Bank in February, so the park was very quiet, which we liked.

The property

Acorn Bank is a modern lodge at Fallbarrow Park, in a lovely, elevated position surrounded by trees.

Sleeping four people in two bedrooms, with room in the master bedroom for an infant’s travel cot (can be hired along with a high-chair for £5).

The master double bedroom has an ensuite shower room, and the second bedroom has narrow twin beds.

Fallbarrow Park is one of the loveliest Parks in the lake district, sitting right on the shores of Lake Windermere, with views across the lake and up to the fells all around.

The bustling, cosmopolitan village of Bowness-on-Windermere is 0.2 miles walk away handy for many shops, bars and restaurants.

From Bowness Pier you can start an unforgettable day out on the water with Windermere Lake Cruises – board a beautiful cruiser and hop on and off or rent a canoe or a motorboat.
