  • "We had a lovely weekend away at Duckling lodge."

    It was clean and tidy on arrival. Resort was quite but was expected for that time of year (December). Only thing we would of liked, would be a cover over the hot tub for bad weather. Otherwise would definitely recommend this lodge and can’t wait to go back! Our little doggie had a great time to…

  • "The hot tub sheet said it was checked twice a day, it wasn’t checked at all in the week we were there."

    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.

  • "What great accommodation!"

    Spacious, comfortable, clean, excellent facilities. Good location for easy access up to the Lake District (only 25 minutes to the bottom of Lake Windemere) Loved the hot tub & we weren’t great at figuring it out but quick, friendly & helpful communication with the lovely owners soon rectified this. Highly recommend this as a place to stay.

  • "My family and I had a wonderful stay here, the lodge has every home comfort."

    It was a great base for hiking and exploring the lakes and having the hot tub to come back to for soaking tired limbs was a real bonus. Thank you.

  • "Needed a very last minute get away following some sad family news, our little one loved the hot tub, and the park was lovely relaxed and quiet, the cabin was clean, smelt lovely when we went in."

    It was home from home comfort and really helped us recouperate. We were dashing to leave and so I am sorry I put the dishwasher on and left this on the cycle as we were leaving as we left earlier than we anticipated. The hoover wasnt the best at picking up the smaller bits but I gave it a good going over as we were leaving, we will defo stay here again in the near future! Thank you for being our haven. :)

  • "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

    I didn’t email the booking company, really disappointing as this was the reason we booked so we could relax

    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!
