  • "I am just back from a 4 night stay at shore bests lodge and oh wow, this has got to be the best lodge we have stayed in, the decor has been tastefully thought out throughout the lodge, it is very well equipped, very clean."

    And oh the beds are so comfortable! You are guaranteed a great night sleep. We were surprised to see the onsuite in bedroom in the cupboard, very smart idea! My favourite part of the lodge has got to be sitting at the table just looking at the view of the lake, rain or shine. There are plenty shops for your groceries 5 min drive from the lodge, including a farm shop which has a lovely cafe/restaurant, there is also a restaurant on site but they don't sell food Monday & Tuesday just to note. But everyone seemed to really enjoy their meals. We didn't want to leave the lodge and wished we booked our trip for longer! Thanks again Sandra for our stay we all thoroughly enjoyed it and can't wait to come back again!

  • "There were lovely finishing touches that we really appreciated as it was Christmas."

    There was a light up Xmas tree, sweets basket and lovely decorations. The house itself is lovely, bright , spacious with a relaxing view. The rooms are spacious and the living area is well furnished. There are multiple lighting options which I liked a lot. The en-suit bathroom has a sensor night light which I found a very smart idea. The bedlinen is comfy and warm. The heating was great, even on 18C the house was warm. (outside temperature was 6C) Parking is available next to the house. We also used the swimming pool and restaurant on site. Easy access with friendly and helpful staff. Grocery shops are nearby. There is noise from the motorway but it was expected. Overall it was a pleasant stay but I would like to mention that the mattresses are overused and was uncomfortable to sleep on. Some of us ended up sleeping in the living room and on the bed without the mattress. It must be reviewed and change. The plates wasn't all clean but as it is a "Clean after yourself" kitchen I expected it, so I just rewashed whatever I used. In the en-suit bathroom part of the shower is broken, it is not possible to raise the temperature of the water higher that lukewarm. I guess if it was not reported before, it is not something that obvious when it comes to fixing things. I hope that the mattresses will be changed and the shower fixed as it is a lovely place to relax away from the crowd.

    Lovely view from Lodge overlooking the lake. Easy to get to surrounding area as close to motorway. Would just suggest more glasses needed

  • "Lovely property, beds comfortable but linen could be cleaner."

    Oven needs some maintenance, no water supply to bath! Park is a nice size, pub ok but would not recommend the food in pub. M6 runs right along the bottom of lake and A6 on the other side so sadly there is a lot of constant road noise. Not so relaxing in the summer I imagine when you want to sit out on the deck.

    Thank you for your comments. There is water in the bath unfortunately you did not turn the taps the correct way. Property Owner

    Quiet, comfortable and relaxing. Very well equipped with all mod cons. This is the best property that we have rented through Sykes and we fully intend to return next year. It is the perfect place to relax and unwind. The only slight hick-up, was the Grill had some brackets missing for the grill pan, other than that we all felt totally at home.

    Thank you for your comments. I will check the grill pan when we are next up . Property Owner

    it's offers great comfort value for money in a stunning lakeside location. It's spacious and spotlessly clean It's a short drive to Morecambe and the lovely little town of Heysham. Half a hour takes you to the breathtaking beauty of the lake district and Kirby Lonsdale slightly less time. The historic town of Lancaster is a short drive and worth a visit to its very own castle. The on site restaurant is very good and gets busy in high season so booking is recommended. It lovely to walk around the lake to take advantage of all the bird and wild life. There is a pool gym and steam room on site too Basically this lodge is a proper home from home in a stunning location with great on site facilities. Counting the days to my next trip !

    The lodge was beautiful, clean and spacious. Great pressure in the showers, very comfortable beds and plenty of wardrobe space. The kitchen was well equipped and a pleasure to use. The Hive heating was great and easy to control.A really relaxing environment. The only negative was at times seagulls were noisy, one or two other lodge owners were feeding them which did break the peace and quiet, but you couldn’t hear it with the windows closed. We’d definitely go back , feel so rested.

    I had a lovely time looking out and seeing the Lake. It was really clean and everything i needed to use in the kitchen was available. I wish the TV in the living room was more up to date like the ones in the room - with the option to watch netflix and youtube. Also, the wifi was really slow. However all in all, it was a great place to stay with my girls. I will rate it 8/10.

    6 star accommodation. Our second holiday in this lodge. The only problem is the fishing is awful. LOL Nothing on baits. Nine pike on shads, biggest around a foot long. In fact during the time there I never saw a fish top. Never mind, the lodge made up for it. Everything you would want on a holiday is there. Thank You.

    Spotlessly clean and extremely well equipped. Bedrooms and bathrooms provided a comfortable experience. The accommodation was spacious and along with the front deck there was plenty of room for our family of 6 adults. We loved watching the bird life on the lake especially the swans who were sitting on eggs in their nest amongst the reeds.

    It’s a proper home from home and it’s lakeside location is hard to beat. The lodge itself has quality fixtures and fittings and offers a comfortable and relaxing stay. It’s nice way to start you day by walking round the lake. Morecambe and the lakes are easily reached by car. About three miles away you’ll find Carnforth where there is an Aldi,Booths, Tesco and Coop. In Morecambe there is an Aldi and Morrisons. The on site restaurant is good and offers a take away. Can’t wait to rerun. It’s a great lodge that offers excellent accommodation at a very reasonable price.

    Also to expect people to check out at 10 when you can only check in at 5 is a joke when you are expected to stripe your beds clean up remove rubbish pack have your breakfast etc its ment to be a holiday. Lastly we had to drink our champagne out of tall tumblers as only 1 wine glass ?

  • "Stayed at this lodge many times and always enjoy a great time."

    This visit was no expectation The only thing that let it down badly was the shower drain in the shower In the main bathroom. The water was gathering in the shower tray when we showered. On pulling out the shower drain it was filthy and clearly not been cleaned for quite some. It was thick with sludge and congealed hair and the smell was absolutely foul. This should be cleaned every time a guest departs. This is clearly not happening. It didn’t detract from my holiday. But when there are all these cleaning protocols in place for Covid yet the shower drain was so obviously overlooked makes me think what other cleaning considerations are being overlooked. Apart from that issue holiday went well as always.

  • "The lodge was lovely, light, airy and spacious."

    With comfortable beds and soft towels. The owners have obviously spent time and money making it a very attractive place to stay. However, they are being badly let down by their cleaner. Two baking trays were covered in grease and dried on food. The microwave had also not been cleaned. It had rice left on the glass plate and evidence of food on the sides. I’m not a clean freak, but because of Covid the lodge should have been cleaned thoroughly, so I spot checked other areas, which is not something I would normally do. Subsequently I found the cooker hood was greasy on the top, picture and mirror frames were thick with dust. The bed side lamps in the double bedroom were also very dusty - weeks worth of dust. The toilet seat in the en-suite had dirt near the hinges. The lodge does not accept guests until 5pm supposedly to give extra time for the cleaning, disinfecting and sanitising. However, it appears that no deep clean took place. The noise from the M6 should be mentioned. Although it can’t be heard from inside the lodge it did distract on the veranda.

  • "We took our parents to the shore beats work lodge, plus our 2 year old and 6 month old baby."

    To say this was brilliant is an understatement. Everything was amazing. The lake view was breathtaking. The most calming view to wake up to everyday. Surrounding areas of this lodge was beautiful. The beautiful scenery, ullswater and the highest mountain in england - scafells pike - everything was within 2 hours. The drive takes your breath away. We forget we are in England. England has the most gorgeous views. My parents loved it and did not want to come back at all. We literally had to ask if they could extend our stay, however, guests had already booked the place so it was time for us to depart. If my parents loved it that much, this means it was AMAZING. Everyone left extremely relaxed and happy but sad to leave the lodge. The only downside was that there were so many spiders inside the lodge and outside which made it difficult to open the main door. The cobwebs and spiders were huge. It took an hour to vaccuum and mop the spiders outside. The lady wasnt able to do anything about it. Overall, after spiders were cleaned up, we were able to really relax. My toddler can't stop talking about this place. Loved it so much. We all loved feeding the ducks 3x a day, esp my parents and toddler. Cooking, eating, sleeping, etc was a dream to do. Didnt feel like a chore at all. Thank you for making us experience such a pleasant stay. We will definitely be back for some more.

    It felt nothing short of a overwater bungalow as in the Maldives but just cheaper, closer to home and more to do. As a group of friends on a relaxing weekend, we were able to sit on our balcony till late and enjoy the lovely breeze overlooking the lake. The cottage was impeccably clean considering the COVID-19 issue. We couldn't fault any aspect of our stay and will look at booking again in the near future. We were in 2 minutes walking distance from the leisure centre to go swimming and the spa. Pine Lake resort is also a couple of minutes in the car and has all the water activities. The views here are beyond amazing and neighbours are lovely! Plenty of things to do and Tesco and Aldi is only a couple of minutes away.

  • "Decor of the accommodation was lovely."

    Very modern appliances in the kitchen, big living room area, and the views were gorgeous. My son had an amazing time feeding the ducks. Warm, so nice and cosy for winter, and not too bad summer either. Only fault we had was with the cleanliness standards. There were some issues, not major but still made us uncomfortable. This fault and could easily be improved upon. * Walking into the property on the first evening there were at least 20 spiders hanging off the ceiling and cob webs that have clearly been there for more than a day. Straightaway it made us question how clean the touch points were especially since we all have to be ultra clean due to covid-19. * Loads of spiders (and spiderlings) on the outside of patio doors which meant we couldn't open the door until we cleaned them away. * My daughter is petrified of spiders and had her hoodie up throughout her stay in case the spiders dropped down from the ceiling. We couldn't reach it to clean it away. So she certainly did not enjoy her stay as she was on tenterhooks and uncomfortable. *The filter in cooker hood was not cleaned for a long time as it was dripping with grease. I had to wipe it clean otherwise the grease would drop into my food whilst cooking. * Stains were on the mattress protector. I suppose the positive is that I discovered this on the last day as we had to strip the beds for them as part of checking out otherwise all week I'd feel disgusted having to lie on it. *Earliest check in time was 5pm to allow them extra cleaning time so I am shocked that the place was so unclean. I'm the sort of person who gives everything a wipe down anyway wherever we stay and even more so because of covid-19 especially frequently touched areas and the kitchen cabinet handles were not cleaned properly as I had to use some effort to remove the food specks. * However, the positive cleanliness wise is cleaning products were left for guests to use - maybe they expected guests to do the cleaning themselves before unpacking! In conclusion, great lake views, great facilities, lovely furnishings, just improvement required on cleaning and a new mattress protector.
