  • "We had a lovrly 3 night stay, we all said we would definitely go back for another stay."

    The kitchen was well equipped, the MASSIVE tv was a bonus with the added access to Youtube and Netflix was thoroughly enjoyed. The weather wasnt on our side so we couldnt enjoy the BBQ as we planned however we enjoyed food indoors. And despite the rain we utilised the hot tub. It was great to know Ian was available on the phone and we felt safe during our stay knowing the area was gated securely.

  • "Such a gorgeous spacious lodge, with everything you need inside."

    This is our second time visiting here and both times we have absolutely loved it. Our kids ask to go back all the time, they call it ‘our big hot tub holiday’ as we have been to quite a few but box tree allways stands out to them & us. It’s also in a great location with plenty to do just a short drive away, some of the walks and views are just breathtaking! We will definitely be returning!

  • "Lovely lodge Quiet, peaceful and during our week we were only family on-site so kids enjoyed park and small football pitch to themselves."

    Lodge itself very modern and well equipped Couple of small issues- no lock on main bathroom door. Obviously causes some problems Also no washing machine? I would have thought this would be included. We had to travel to nearby laundrette during our week long stay. Thanks

    It did not disappointment. It was immaculately clean and had everything you needed to enjoy a weekend away. The owners were so welcoming and on hand at all times should you need anything. Would recommend it to anyone who wanted a quiet, peaceful and luxury break

  • "Great place to stay, good for the children due to being fenced in."

    It was peaceful due to the amount of space and only having 4 bungalows in the vicinity. There were lots of lovely places to visit and lots of free parking. The hot tub was clean and kept well. The facilities were all great! All clean and fresh sheets. The kitchen could have done with a potato peeler and masher!! We have a keen mashed potato fan in our tribe. She missed them. Other than that cannot fault we all had a great holiday and really enjoyed it. Would definitely recommend and even consider going back again some day.

  • "Despite dreadful weather, our family of 10 (6 adults, 3 children and a baby) had a fantastic time at The Wenning."

    The living/dining area was really spacious, so no-one ever felt cramped or crowded. The well-equipped kitchen had everything we needed (although a high-chair and a cafetière would have been useful), and the whole lodge was comfortable and cosy. Relaxing and playing in the hot-tub, during the day and also in the evenings (even in the rain), was such a treat. We would definitely recommend the lodge to families and would like to return in the future!

  • "The lodge was very modern and extremely warm in fact we had to turn off most of the radiators it must be that well insulated."

    There is plenty of cutlery, glasses and crockery. The hot tub is great and we only wish the weather had been better to have a barbecue. The TV is one of the biggest I have ever seen and it was great to watch the New Year in. We were greeted by the owner Ian who showed us around we even had a Christmas tree with lights, but the nicest touch was an M&S hamper plus a tin of biscuits and a tin of chocolates as a Christmas surprise. Thank you for making our stay so welcome especially in these trying times

About the location


Kendal 9 miles.

An attractive market town, Kirkby Lonsdale is situated in the heart of the Lune Valley, midway between the Yorkshire Dales and the Lake District. The town was mentioned in the Domesday Book of 1086, and holds a 13th century Market Charter. Nowadays, Thursday is market day, a perfect opportunity for visitors to explore the variety of distinctive independent shops in the town, or the many 17th and 18th century buildings which still stand. The town was also a finalist for the High Street of the Year Award in 2016. This part of the Lune Valley was a favourite haunt of the artist Turner, and was made famous by Ruskin – his "view" of the valley is still spectacular. The medieval Devil’s Bridge spans the river, and the quiet country lanes are ideal for exploring by car, bike, or even horse. There are three golf courses nearby, as well as tennis, riding, fishing and a variety of riverside and country walks, making the area an ideal location for a break, whatever time of year. When voting Kirkby Lonsdale as the ‘Best Place to Live in The North West’ in 2019, The Sunday Times commented it is “An unbeatable Lake District location, bags of community spirit and one of the cleanest high streets in the country".
