  • "The lodge is lovely and better than expected (I’d recommend you to update the photos online as the new sofas and new tv look great!"

    ) The cleanliness could have been better as there was a lot of broken glass near and under one of the sofas when we first arrived. We hoovered it to find the hoover was full to the brim and needed emptying before using. Everytime we hoovered which was daily, the lodge ending up stinking of dog (im guessing from what was inside and left in the hoover!) I contacted the owner and Sykes to say we were having an issue with the washing machine as it had locked after a cycle meaning our clothes were stuck inside, but I had no response from either in the 4 days we were there. We managed to unlock it by turning it off at the mains. The lodge is lovely, and the hot tub was perfect and remained hot all the time. 30-40minute drive to Windermere which was perfect. Would definitely visit again and recommend to others.

  • "We had a lovely relaxing time at duckling lodge for 5 days, perfect for visiting different places."

    The only thing i would advise is that would be helpful is a handrail in main bathroom to help steady for getting in and out of shower, even though there are mats, found it a bit difficult getting in and out for shower. the on suite shower is a bit small for the larger person and no where to put toiletries also the shower head keeps sliding down, needs attention, but we over all had a peaceful time, thank you.

  • "WiFi not showing up for us to connect."

    Could see WiFi for lodges all around but for lodge 5. Later it showed up but poor connection then disappeared. If WiFi is essential for you this is not good for you- like my sister she is from abroad with phone on data roaming so she was disappointed all night she got no WiFi in the lodge. Another issue we had is when I tried to run a bath I couldn’t find anywhere the bath plug. Very strange indeed. Main bedroom is comfortable enough. Small bed really small. Hot tub is the best part. Nice surroundings in the village but lodge next to lodges quite close. In general I would say ok but not strong recommendation

  • "The lodge was amazing for us for our short break."

    It was a perfect reset, the lodge was clean, comfortable, warm and had everything that we needed including WiFi which was great for the kids. The welcome wine and biscuits was an also a nice surprise! The park is quiet and calming, if you’re going expecting Haven then you’ll be disappointed but for us, we needed quiet and calm and it was stunning. The lake is beautiful to walk around, especially with a dog, and the whole park is so clean and well kept. It’s the sort of place I’d like to retire too. The pub was lovely and the food was great. The service was also exceptional. For us, only two improvements that we could see, the first is for the park, it needs a small shop for essentials. The second is so tiny but the remote in the bedroom doesn’t work, like I said, so minor but, for some it may be an issue. In short, we loved it, perfect location and an amazing gem of a lodge that we wouldn’t hesitate to visit again.

    Although not mentioned, there is a TV in the bedroom. Unfortunately there is no signal and the remote control is faulty (right arrow button not working) so it is not possible to connect to the internet. We did report this to Reception but the problem was not resolved while we were there (4 days). This did not detract from our enjoyment and the hot tub was amazing, we were lucky to have 3 nights with great star gazing. Would certainly recommend Duckling Lodge.

    Being left wine and nibbles was very nice. Also dog bowls etc made us feel dog was welcome. Hot tub nice and hot. Nice quiet site,very clean. Was nice to have washing machine and dishwasher,although we didnt use either. Only complaints are that as we arrived in dark, the site is poorly lit and lodges not very well lit so finding our lodge was difficult to find.also registering / booking fee is very high. will be returning.

  • "We really enjoyed our stay at duckling lodge, great location with only a short drive to the nearest town."

    The site was nice, very clean and looked after. We really loved the welcome goodies that were left and felt they were a really nice touch! Lovely size lodge with good size bedrooms and beds. The hot tub was great and was easy to use. We had a lot of rain whilst there which cannot be helped, but it didn’t dampen our experience. There are also lots of great walks nearby for all the family. My only suggestion I would make is that the gate lock is fixed. After reading ahead from reviews I took a bungee cord to secure the gate so that our dog couldn’t get out if she was on the decking area. Other than this we enjoyed our stay and would definitely recommend it to anyone who is thinking of going for a nice getaway! Thanks so much for our stay in Duckling lodge!

    Was surprised on arrival to see different flooring and sofas than on the listing but it was a nice surprise. Hot tub a nice feature although the lid is really heavy. Had issue with electrics tripping, no info in the information book of what to do or who to contact, ended up contacting Sykes but by the time they replied we got them working again. Some of information in there is out of date (IE recommended place to eat closed, site map written on) but nothing Google major that a Google search couldn't help with. Would stay again and recommend to anyone if you want a quiet break and a home from home feel.

  • "This is a lovely location and overall great accommodation which we would visit again."

    Positives; Lovely bedroom and ensuite Kitchen overall had everything you need Sofas have been replaced (ignore reviews about this) Hot tub is lovely! The decking is in shade after 5pm so good for children and pets if you want them out the heat. The umbrella under the sink it handy! The clothes airer was handy too! Tip use the pegs under the sink if you put it outside. Lovely welcome gift, wine and biscuits and mint cake. Dog bowls and a biscuit tin for dog treats was a lovely touch! The rubber mat for the dog bowl was brilliant. Negatives; Oven is dirty, I washed the oven shelf and grill before using it, water was brown. Oven could do with a second shelf, Grill pan has a lump of baked on residue on it. It won’t come off. No oven trays, I purchased one and left it there. Dishwasher doesn’t open unless you pull the kitchen kick boards off. There is a kitchen cupboard without and handle, which can’t be used. Glass in outside table was fallen through dirty and upside down. We managed to get it together and cleaned as best we could. Outside sofa was missing so we used dining chairs outside. We later found it outside the back broken. The torch referred to was missing. The lack of bins in the bathrooms was awkward at times (only one bin in kitchen) Only a few minor points which can be easily rectified, I would stay here again and would recommend it.

    The kit board under the washer doesn't fit and you can't open the dishwasher without taking this off. The curtain pole over the patio doors is broken and is balanced on top of eachother making it dangerous for it to fall. There was no bowl in the sink and no mop to clean the floors meaning I had to do this on my hands and knees. Tye bathroom door sticks and therefore the children were anxious to close this. The batteries ok the TV remote in the living room needed replacing and the TV remote in the bedroom doesn't work properly and needs to be replaced. The photos on the website are not a true reflection of the current curtains, sofa, flooring etc The property is in a lovely location. However the property is in need of some tlc. For a family if four to use the swimming facilities is 25 pound a day or 150 for the week. This is an a heavy price on top of the cost of the lodge.

    Maybe a picture of the button would be good. The tub itself was really nice, warm and clean. The settees are awful to look at and the throws don’t cover the plucks and wear of them so initially the impression of the lodge is tainted by that vision, but they are so comfortable! Just need fitted covers to hide the wear & tear. The welcome pack was fabulous and much appreciated. The overall cleanliness was adequate and the beds, showers, kitchen areas were fine. Taking all into account I would stay again as it’s well worth the money and the location was perfect for what we wanted to do.

    The lodge was clean an tidy on arrival and added extra of a lovely tray of goodies which went down well with the kids. The site itself is stunning all lodges set out around a beautiful lake. Swimming was a big hit with kids just be mindful there is a charge and if children under 16 they need an adult at all times in the water even if they are good swimmers as there is no lifeguard. Hot tub was fantastic !!! Location was great too. Just a few points about the lodge which let it down tv in bedroom does not work at all an tv in lounge works for 10mins and goes off. Only three knives and forks available so I had to go and buy cutlery set for £15 in carnforth village on first day which I wasn’t to happy about. Door handle in main bathroom needs attention loose an sticks one time my son struggled to get out which shuck him up as he thought he wouldn’t get out. Toilet seat in main bathroom needs attention it moves when you sit on it and u nearly fall off. Hoover in bedroom needs a good clean as when u put it on to use it’s stinks and basically made me feel sick. On the whole we had a great stay an I think if the points I raised were addressed would have been excellent. Thanks again .

The welcome pack was lovely tho. skirting boards were a bit dusty. kitchen cupboards need sorting out so you have better room to fit your food in some was filled with chunk stuff and top corner cupboard needs sorting as you can't get it open very easily.

    Firstly add states shop in 0.1 miles - there is no shop. Add states fishing included in rent - not strictly is only available if your lodge is directly on the water (this lodge is not) so reception advised fishing is only from the lake beach where kids play which is not appropriate, so therefore told fishing is on a neighbouring site for £6. Add stated WiFi - the property had no WiFi. The back doors are broken, the shower leaks, the dishwasher doesn’t work correctly, the kids seat on en-suite toilet doesn’t stay up so we didn’t use this toilet, the telly in the bedroom didn’t work, the telly in the living room kept glitching and we were unable to turn off from the socket as the owners had screwed the TV to the wall blocking the socket. So we had to simply ‘wait it out’ for the TV to shortcut and turn off. Extremely frustrating stay with lots of faults needing a simple fix. The add isn’t honest with shop WiFi fishing etc.

    Thank you for your feedback. I was disappointed to hear that you were unhappy - but this is the first either Sykes, or myself, heard of it. You stayed in the lodge for 7 days, yet waited 2 days (after you got home) to write a bad review. I would have thought that you would complain whilst on holiday, so that I can fix any problems. Because I was upset about the review, I decided to visit the lodge myself yesterday, to look at these 'snags'. The ad stated under 1 mile for the nearest shop, then further down it said 0.1 miles - this was a typing error, which has been rectified by Sykes now. The fishing is onsite, but reception say, that there are not many fish in there, so they send people over the road to a fishing lake that has lots of wonderful fish in it and it is charged at £6 per day. The wifi is definitely working, the back doors are not broken - and I have written in the manual (which is on the coffee table) that the doors need to be closed together - it's really easy. I put the dishwasher on, and that worked perfectly, and the shower didn't leak while I was there. The children's seat is for a child to sit on - I thought I was thinking of everyone's stay - but everybody can still use it. The tv in the bedroom worked perfectly. I had the tv on in the lounge area all day and there were no glitches. The shop and the fishing have been amended on Sykes site. Thank you. Property Owner

    Was full of bits of leaves and things every day. The lodge was very dirty when we arrived, bits of food on floor, chairs, bed. The patio doors were faulty, and instead of fixing them which wouldn’t be hard to do, they took the time to make a sheet that said please close them together which is lazy. The cutlery supplied was very cheap and flimsy, we struggled to eat with them and ended up using our own out of our picnic bag! Not many plates and pans. The tv had space and a cable for the DVD player but no DVD player? Either bother or don’t? Furniture and items seem dated, lots of walls scuffed with paint! A tin of paint is about a tenner! We enjoyed the beds, VERY comfy. En-suite shower brilliant as was bath in other room. Would be nice if there was some kind of contact number in the lodge or an info folder with things to do? Every other lodge I’ve been to has it. Reception were a bit rude, we asked where to go and got told to take a picture of the map and the key would be in a safe. On site restaurant is ok, but you can never get booked in and they shut at 8:30 in holiday season? Really don’t understand why. We would stay again but the lodge needs updating, cleaning and maybe just a more personal touch, we feel like the bedding was changed before we came but nothing was cleaned or tidied. We still had a nice holiday.

  • "This is not a lodge as advertised but a static caravan."

    The accommodation was full of cobwebs, spiders, the carpet was stained. The ensuite shower was unusable as the water was scalding hot and unable to be turned to a lower temperature. Also in the ensuite the water in the loo was running constantly which caused a disturbed night sleep. We thought cleanliness would be absolutely second to none in current climate. Washed all cutlery and crockery before using as was marked and dirty

    Thank you for your feedback, All issues within the property have now been addressed, if we were made aware during your stay we would of addressed these for you. I am sorry to hear you don't feel the property is not a lodge many of our guest enjoy the lodge. Property Owner

  • "Lovely clean lodge, hot tub an added bonus!"

    Quite a bit further from The Lakes than I had thought... If you’re looking to holiday in Cumbria - check the location more thoroughly than we did!

The property

Situated within the South Lakeland Leisure Village, resting on the outskirts of the bustling town of Carnforth is this wonderful waterside lodge, Duckling Lodge.

This heart-warming retreat is the perfect escape from reality for a family seeking a traditional getaway to an area steeped with natural beauty and in close proximity to the coastline.

Be welcomed into an open-plan living space which has been individually styled with a light decor and large windows offering an abundance of natural light.

Choose to spend your evening relaxing on the soft leather, reclining sofas and while away the hours having a family movie night or catching up with your favourite TV shows whilst the gas fire keeps you nice and toasty.

Behind this is a smartly fitted kitchen with pristine white units and plenty of preparation space for rustling up some delicious meals.

Take your meals to the handy dining table with enough seating for all four guests and toast to a wonderful holiday with a refreshing glass of champagne.

Situated all on the ground floor, the property hosts one double and one twin bedroom, both with a range of furniture for storing your personal belongings.

The master bedroom comes with its own en-suite shower room so you don't have to share the bathroom unless you fancy a long and relaxing soak in the tub.

The property benefits from an enclosed decking area, perfect for those summer evenings outside watching the sunset, or take a dip in the bubbling hot tub for that splash of luxury during your trip.

Once you've spent some time on the decking in the morning watching the sun fully rise, head out to explore the local area; with the site holding a range of facilities including a restaurant and bar, gym, pool, steam room and spa, you have everything you need for a relaxing retreat on your doorstep.

While you're in the area, choose from a small choice of restaurants and pubs at the village of Carnforth for some fine dining.

A short drive will bring you into the bustling city centre of Lancaster which benefits from a wide-range of attractions suitable for all ages and tastes.

You can visit the 12th century Lancaster Castle, Lancaster City Museum housed in a Georgian building, or explore the Lancaster Priory Church for a wealth of history.

Or choose to a take a long walk alongside the Lancaster Canal with your four-legged friend as your companion.

Travel towards Morecambe Golf Club where you can enjoy a friendly game with your family or spend the afternoon at the beach.

Duckling Lodge is a well-placed property for exploring the very best Lancashire has to offer.
