  • “Fab little lodge, everything we needed, lovely and clean.”

    The park has a nice bar area you can go in with dogs for food and drink when the weather isnt great and lovely seating area outside by the lake on good days which we were lucky to have.

The property

Doormouse Lodge is a lovely Scandinavian, all-ground-floor lodge, nestled in the South Lakeland Leisure Village, just outside of Carnforth.

This spacious property is ideal for a small family or couple wanting to enjoy the convenience of the many on-site facilities, as well exploring the stunning countryside that surrounds the area, much of which is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

The lodge has a great open-plan living area, with a plush 4-seater sofa big enough for the whole group to settle onto and enjoy watching a show or film on the TV, while the electric fire fills the room with warmth.

The dining area has seating for four, where you can enjoy home-cooked meals, prepared in the well-equipped kitchen, with a fridge/freezer, handy microwave and electric oven.

The property has two bedrooms; a master double with a convenient en-suite shower room, and a twin room, ideal for younger guests and serviced by the family bathroom, so you can choose how you would prefer to get ready for each day.

Outside is a large, enclosed decking area with table and chairs, perfect for taking advantage of the provided barbecue on a sunny day, along with outdoor sofas to relax on and admire your peaceful surroundings.

The village has many on-site facilities and conveniences you can take advantage of (some charges may apply), such as a pool, gym, beauty salon, pub and restaurant and beautiful lake to stroll around or take a picnic to.

The town of Carnforth is a just over two miles away and has a good selection of shops, pubs and restaurants and the delightful Carnforth Bookshop, home to over 100,000 second-hand and antiquarian books, along with attractions such as Leighton Hall, the beautiful house and grounds of the furniture-making Gillow family's home.

Head to Morecambe for a day at the beach, a stroll along the promenade and the classic fish and chip supper, there's also a golf course and the beautiful Art Deco Midland Hotel, which provides views over the water.

Leighton Moss RSPB Reserve is within easy reach, where you can see deer, otters and a variety of rare birds, while the Lake District National Park is also accessible, with plenty of scenic walking, cycling and watersport opportunities for the whole family.

The city of Lancaster is a short drive away, with its 12th century castle, museum and Priory Church, while the Lancaster Canal offers pretty walking trails.

With a wealth of opportunities nearby that the whole family will love, Doormouse Lodge makes for a fantastic retreat in a peaceful setting.

About the location


Carnforth 2 miles; Kendal 15 miles; Windermere 20 miles.

Set on a 43 acre site, the South Lakeland Leisure Village is situated just a couple of miles from Carnforth on the border of the Southern Lake District and the Yorkshire Dales. This beautiful area combines superb countryside and a coast with a rich and fascinating history dating back to the Domesday Book. The ‘village’, which has been given 5 stars by Visit Britain and has been accredited with David Bellamy Gold conservation awards provide top quality accommodation in the form of Scandinavian log cabins built around a large lake in the centre. The main club, a former 17th century farmhouse, is home to the on-site bar and restaurant, The Water’s Edge, and the village provides top quality leisure facilities with an indoor swimming pool, gym, steam room and beauty therapy suite to name but a few. An excellent location, within easy driving distance of pretty villages, coastal resorts and the national parks of the Lakes and the Dales.
