  • "Great lodge!"

    Perfect location for town, great park facilities and everything the Lakes have to offer on the doorstep. First Class

  • "This booking was originally made for April 2020, the booking had to be moved due to COVID restrictions but at no point was I offered a refund, in fact I had to pay another £600 to move it."

    I will not use Sykes again because of this

    Hello Mr Deeble April bookings are cheaper than those for August. We are pleased that you enjoyed the lodge and we appreciate the high ratings given. Property Owner

  • "Absolutely loved our stay at the cottage."

    Whilst there we looked to book for the following year but already fully booked at times we could go. The cottage was comfortable, warm, clean and provided everything we needed. The cleaning bits left on the sink was a nice touch. Beds were super comfy and would defo book again. If had to provide any feedback of points which could have added to our experience then perhaps a bag of ice provided in the freezer, the remote control for the tv in the lounge was not working which meant we generally watched one channel but not a major issue. Did mean to lick up some batteries but forgot. The decking outside was in need of a good jet wash with all the trees around but not a major point again. Overall loved the cottage and well positioned on the site with a small glimpse of the lake abs very convenient for Bowness!

    The lodge was clean and provided everything we needed. The beds are extremely comfortable and the quality bedlinen was appreciated as were the toiletries. There is a large verandah with outdoor seating and a barbecue. I would be happy to recommend this lodge.

    Apart from that we all had a lovely time in the lodge and exploring the site. Great location looking forward to our next visit soon.

  • "High quality accommodation but a little irritating in places."

    Some light bulbs had gone, the water pressure in the showers was non existent, the front door lock was really hard to lock from the inside, in fact the whole place just needed a bit of TLC, which I guess would come at the end of the season? The (very sparse) instruction folder, in the lounge, was sadly lacking with regard the operation of the fire in the lounge and the central heating and any useful information about the area or good ideas of where to go etc. Wi-fi on site is appalling so do not rely on it. You can see about 5 square feet of the lake through the trees, so i suppose the lake views claim is valid, albeit tongue in cheek. A nice touch with the sanitiser and dishwasher tablets provided and very comfortable beds, overall highly recommended. Ideally located with a 2 minute walk into Bowness

  • "Excellent Lodge, clean and comfortable, loved the BBQ and decking area."

    Well equipped, Excellent location on the site, we felt very Covid safe in the Cafe and Bar on site and in the restaurants and bars in Bowness, which is only a short stroll away, however the public have decided that Covid no longer exists while they’re on holiday so be prepared for no social distancing whilst walking around Bowness, but the shops, bars and restaurants are following the rules as far as we could see. We will definitely book the lodge again.

  • "Words and pictures do not do this lodge justice."

    ...its simply perfect in every way. Our experience from start to finish was first class, with the accommodation pristine and equip with everything you'd need. The location offers you a glimpse of the lake from the decking, with the shores of the lake 5 mins walk away, where we were able to launch our small boat from the private jetty. The Park itself is extremely well kept and all staff were friendly and helpful whilst taking the necessary Covid-19 precautions. Bowness town is a 5 minute walk away and had a great range of shops, restaurants and bars. My family and I have made some great memories and this location and lodge were a great base to do so.

  • "Beautiful site and perfect location on windermere, very easy and quick walk to town."

    Very friendly staff on site. Lodge in excellent location on site, great outside decking and can just see lake from deck. Brand new bbq looks great! Parking is tight but we got 2 suv's in without problem. Very comfortable beds and bedding, very nice that toiletries, towels, loo roll, washing up stuff etc are supplied. Dishwasher was broken (note from owners advised waiting replacement). Lodge starting to look a little bit tired in a few spots, laminate just starting to lift in kitchen area, lighting not all working. A small bit of tlc just needed to bring the lodge back to top notch.

  • "The boiler in the lodge was not working when we arrived due to no water in the system."

    When we rang the owner he talked us through filling the system up which we did and then water started coming out the bottom of the boiler. He did not seemed fazed by this and I believe it has been happening for a while. The owner said the plumber would be out on Monday (we arrived on a Saturday) we were there for a week and no sign of a plumber or anymore contact with the owner. We had to top the boiler up every couple of days. We had no issues with this but other guests may find this a challenge every other day. The lodge its self was very clean and well equipped.

    Thank you for your feedback. As discussed during our telephone conversation, a plumber attended to the boiler on the Monday as described and rectified the problem. We are pleased that you otherwise found the lodge well equipped and hope you enjoyed your break. Property Owner

  • "Lovely cottage with partial view of the lake from the living room."

    Comfortable rooms, good shower/bathroom facilities, all within a few minutes' walk to the centre of Bowness. Had a leak from the dishwasher despite having not used it once, called the owner who saw to it immediately and sent someone over to fix a problem with one of the drain pipes. Slight inconvenience caused but good to see they tended to the problem promptly. Only improvement needed is the standard of cleaning, particularly the floor and the kitchen/living room area. The coffee table and sofas were dirty with sticky marks on them, the floor rug is filthy and just serves to collect dirt and dust and both the kitchen worktops and abinet handles were dirty. Floor looks dirty and I'd expect it to be washed and sanitised in between bookings. The hoover was so filthy that I simply could not use it! Not a 4 star standard of cleanliness but it could be with the right standards applied!

    Our aim is to make sure every guest has a wonderful time staying in the lodge and enjoying the fabulous location. We are sorry to hear the standard of cleaning fell short of our usual very high standards on this occasion. We thank you for bringing it to our notice Property Owner

  • "We were put into the wrong lodge."

    We had to pack up everything and move lodges the following morning. Someone had been into the first lodge whilst we were out, complete invasion of our privacy, I was horrified. 2nd Lodge, BH9, had a dirty sock and crisps under one sofa and the skirting boards were filthy, hadn't seen a duster in months. We also had a puddle of water in the living area, we think it was a leak from the radiator. No foil for grilling. Not the weekend we were expecting to be honest.

  • "Fantastic lodge next to Lake Windermere, and within a few minutes walk into Bowness."

    The Lodge was spotlessly clean and had everything we could possibly have needed. The living / dining area was spacious enough for 5 adults and the bedrooms were extremely comfy, and the TV's in each bedroom were a great bonus. We had a slight problem with the heating, but after a quick phone call to the owner this was rectified promptly, even on Christmas Eve! We had a lovely break and would highly recommend Beech Lodge to anyone planning a visit to the Lake District.

    The property at Beech Hill Lodge was excellent, very comfortable and had everything we required with a high quality of extras (i.e. not cheap cutlery and items which you would not have at home). Apart from the property the location allowed us to relax and enjoy a stress free holiday. The fact that we did not require to drive every day and were only a 5 minute walk into town for all the facilities was excellent. Also the location of the park on the shore of Lake Windermere was lovely and you could enjoy a nice walk without actually leaving the park. Overall the property and park were excellent and we will most likely return in the future.
