  • "Lovely holiday lodge in stunning location, so relaxing."

    Lodge has everything you need for a great break, WiFi was really good allowed me to do a few hours work remotely and steam movies etc for the family. Only slight negative was the mattress on the bed in the master room isn't great, all the other beds were super comfy.

  • "This was one of the best properties we have stayed at on the park - and we have stayed at a few."

    Would highly recommend to others. Brilliant decorations, a welcome pack, and a really Christmassy feel. Not a single complaint!

  • "Samhchair lodge was lovely."

    Had everything we could possibly need. Very modern. Stylish. Beds and bedding are hotel standard. We really had an amazing break. Only thing we didn’t know was the owner calls daily to check hot tub. Would be good to put on the details. And I know it’s the leisure parks rule but finding the lodges for the key in the dark could be a nuisance. Would highly recommend Samhchair lodge to stay at.

  • "Absolutely lovely lodge - spacious, fabulous position on the lake, spotlessly clean, well equipped, comfortable beds & great welcome pack provided."

    On-site facilities also good.

  • "A lovely property in a very lovely setting."

    There was plenty of crockery etc and lots of space, everything you need really. It is a very nice site in a convenient area for the coast and the Lakes. The only downside was the leather sofas which were cold without throws and cushions. I know it was all to do with the COVID nonsense rules. It wouldn’t be a problem in the Summer.

  • "Really good lodge in prime position on lake."

    Comfortable beds. Good wifi and tv. Many unlabelled switches, warned by other review, we returned every switch which didn't produce results to its original position, which worked for us!. Electric fire on/off switch hidden beneath top of fire recess, then controlled by cigarette-lighter sized control. This kept us warm when..... heating and hot water failed overnight on Wednesday, out-of-date Sykes phone number in lodge literature for if we needed help was no good, fortunately we had other numbers and Sykes quickly contacted pleasant owner, who rang us, identified the fault code and two plumbers arrived within a couple of hours to fix it (low pressure). We were quite impressed. We would like to see another coffee table so both settee dwellers had somewhere to put cups, phones, books and specs. There were lots of pint glasses and huge wine ones too, but not many smaller ones for the odd G & T, Bacardi and coke or Bailey's etc. This is something we have found at many holiday rentals, they don't have to match so long as they are there! Hot tub and deck furniture excellent, fully recommended.

  • "Fantastic property and location , we were well impressed with the overall experience, there was plenty of space indoors and out , disappointed with not been able to use the gas BBQ though , one suggestion to help the guests would be label the IMPORTANT switches, nothing was labelled and as a result we turned off the the fridge and freezer and lost all our food which was an expensive error to make."

    All in all a brilliant holiday home, sitting in the jacuzzi or on our own pier watching the sun set over the lake is a memory that will last a lifetime.

  • "Correspondence from Sykes on the run up to our hols was excellent."

    The accommodation was beautiful and had everything we needed. Lovely welcome pack for our arrival, bath and hot tub towels provided, lots of plastic plates, glasses etc for using out on the wrap around outside, and sounds daft but appreciated that it wasn't just 6 spoons, forks etc and that the owner had actually made it like a home from home with extras of so many things. We had to contact the owner once or twice re v minor things and she responded quickly and efficiently. All in all, it was a fabulous wk away and would def rebook this lodge.

  • "The toilet in the ensuite was blocked the whole time we did ring and someone came to fix it but it got blocked again it was blocked the whole week of our stay we even went and brought a plunger from Wickes!"

    The double bed was uncomfortable and noisy every time you moved or turned over the bed squeaked and the headboard stuck to the wall making it creak.

    Thank you for leaving feedback. If we had known the toilet had reblocked we would have sent out the plumber again. We pride ourselves in resolving any issues guests have as quickly as possible to maximise their enjoyment during their stay. Sorry the mattress wasn’t to your taste, we haven’t had any previous complaints but will now be monitoring this more carefully. Thank you again for the feeback - hope we can see you again.

Enjoying a wonderful position on the waterfront is this delightful holiday accommodation, Samhchair Lodge, which is Gaelic for 'peace without interruption'.

Alternatively, simply enjoy much needed time away to restore your physical and mental well-being, with the on-site ‘Pure Essence’ beauty spa which offers luxury packages for men and women with an array of calming treatments; also to be enjoyed is the state of the art fitness studio featuring a 15m indoor pool, steam room and fully equipped air-conditioned gym.

Bring your own boat or craft as the lodge has its own jetty, an angler's delight!

The property is centrally heated throughout and offers a boot room entrance, where there is ample storage for shoes, coats and storage, before you head into the open-plan kitchen/diner.

Catering to your culinary needs, this kitchen plays host to all of the essentials including an gas oven, hob, fridge, freezer, Nespresso machine, dishwasher and washing machine for convenience, as well as additional extras such a blender, mixer and more, a baker's dream!

As the evening draws to a close, make your way into the sitting room where on those chilly winter evenings you can turn on the fire and unwind with a good book in hand, or perhaps with a glass of deserved wine.

Ensuring a flexible sleeping arrangement for all parties, there are three well-presented bedrooms, comprising of a double bedroom with en-suite shower room, and two twin bedrooms sharing the family bathroom, each one complete with dressing table and walk-in wardrobe with integrated storage for your belongings.

To the outside, a wrap-around veranda offers a panoramic view of the lake with alternative space for alfresco dining and barbecue during the summer months, before dipping into your own hot tub for a moment of relaxation.

If you don’t fancy cooking for the evening, there is an onsite restaurant and bar, while further afield lie the villages of Carnforth and Milnthorpe with a number of pubs and restaurants ranging from Italian, Indian and fish and chip shops; in addition there are a number of supermarkets and shops for picking up any essentials.

To keep you busy whilst here, be sure to head to Morecambe Bay which is a beautiful natural landscape, where you can unearth your outdoor adventure, or enjoy fish and chips on the pier, watching the sunset.

Alternatively, walk across the headlands of The Bay, where sweeping views towards the Lake District and the Bowland Fells can be enjoyed.

The Lake District is an area famous for walking, but other activities such as parachuting, windsurfing, mountain biking, horse-riding and kitesurfing can be enjoyed.

In Kendal, the Lakeland Climbing Centre has the tallest indoor climbing wall in England!

For a taste of history, enjoy a scenic drive to Arnside and Silverdale, home to a number of historical landmarks and a plethora of walks amidst an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Catch the train across to Grange-over-sands, and admire the Lido which has been there since Victorian times.

If you are feeling adventurous you could spend the day at the seaside resort of Blackpool with its famous pleasure beach and the Sandcastles indoor water park.

In the nearby historic city of Lancaster, you will find a castle, ancient city walls and a range of quirky shops to explore.

Samhchair Lodge makes a wonderful getaway for an adventure with the whole family, or just a peaceful, tranquil escape.
