    A real home away from home. Lodge was clean as was the site. M6 didn't bother us at all, would recommend and return.

  • "This place is a perfect dog friendly getaway!"

    ! From start to finish we enjoyed every minute. The lodge is very clean, comfortable, well equipped and a great location. The park has traffic barriers so you do have to walk from the entrance where the Waters Edge Restaurant is to the lodge when you arrive to get the key and the fob and walk back again so you can get in but its all of 5 - 10 mins to sort. The owners go above and beyond to make your stay perfect and the welcome pack with all the essentials like tea, coffee, hot chocolate, biscuits and wine is a fabulous touch. I cooked a full breakfast whilst there and wasn't struggling with anything - plenty cutlery, utensils, plates, cups, etc. Even a dishwasher to do all the washing up for you with a couple of tabs provided by the owners! We ate at the Waters Edge restaurant twice, had better steaks elsewhere and the full English breakfast doesn't come with toast but not the end of the world. Two local pubs - Hawks Head and The Malt Shovel, food was really good, well worth a visit and both dog friendly. The little beach by the Waters Edge is great and a fabulous place to enjoy playing in the sand and the water. The M6 is directly behind the lodge, which honestly didn't bother us day or night - any comments that its noisy and disturbing are certainly not true. I would highly recommend this place and will certainly be booking again.

  • "An absolutely delightful property, furnished to a really high standard, catering for our every need, including leaving sofa covers and towels for our furry friends."

    It was an extremely spacious lodge with plenty of space for us all - 6 adults a toddler and 2 big dogs! Location 5 mins off M6 means a great base to explore from. On site facilities are great too if you dont want to venture too far! Highly recommend this place we will definitely be back!

  • "Excellent lodge very comfortable and well equipped."

    Its a great base for exploring the area. It would have been useful to have had more information about recycling and where the bins were situated. The only reason for not getting a higher score was its situation. It is literally next to the M6 with its accompanying noise. We felt that this should have been indicated in the property information as it would have affected our decision as to whether to stay here or not.

The property

Carnforth 2.2 miles.

Set on the grounds of the South Lakeland Leisure Village, on the outskirts of Carnforth, lies this charming, three-bedroom holiday lodge, Walkers Rest.

Sleeping six guests and their two well-behaved dogs, this delightful, ground-floor property boasts off-road parking, open-plan living spaces, an enclosed decking, and superb positioning to nearby amenities, making it a perfect choice for a family or group of sharing friends who are looking for a relaxing, self-catered escape to Lancashire.

Park up and unpack your belongings before settling into your new home-from-home, where a well-appointed, open-plan living space is waiting to be enjoyed.

Get to work in the fully-equipped kitchen where you'll find all the appliances you'll need to whip up a delicious meal for the whole group to savour at the dining table, or even alfresco on the outdoor decking in the warmer months.

In the evenings, kick back and relax with a glass of your favourite beverage in the sitting area whilst you and your loved ones enjoy a film on the Smart TV by the warming embrace of an electric fire.

When it's time to go to sleep, retreat to one of three plush bedrooms, each accompanied by their own wall-mounted Smart TV, where you can properly unwind and settle down for well-earned rest.

When you're ready, take time to explore what your local surroundings have to offer.

The South Lakeland Leisure Village offers shared use of a variety of on-site facilities, including a swimming pool for those looking to get their lengths in, as well as its very own eatery, the Waters Edge Restaurant & Bar.

A short drive into the nearby market town of Carnforth is more than worthwhile, where visitors can pick up some quaint trinkets from the Kitty Brown Boutique, stock up on essentials at the Booths supermarket, or sit down to enjoy a traditional pub lunch at either The Junction or The County Lodge & Brasserie.

The briefest of car journeys north will take you into the heart of the Arnside & Silverside Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, home to the magnificent Gait Barrows National and Warton Crag Nature Reserves, the Fairy Steps hiking area, and the historic spot of Arnside Tower.

Whatever time of year, you'll be sure to have an unforgettable stay in Lancashire when booking Walkers Rest.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £250.
