  • "Absolutely loved the lodge and would definitely go back."

    Plenty of cutlery and kitchen equipment, dishwasher tablets and washing up liquid supplied which was great. Hardly overlooked at all and was lovely to sit out on the decking and have a bbq. Cartmel is just less than a mile away and a simple walk down. Owners where very helpful and replied to messages regarding a couple of queries almost straight away.

  • "Lodge was in perfect location and in near driving distance to everything we wanted to see."

    Hot tub was an amazing addition after a long day of walking and you had everything you needed in the lodge and the welcome packs we’re a lovely little gesture. Enclosed decking area so our dog could be outside with us too was a bonus as other lodges on the park were open. We saw lots of wildlife in the evenings from the lodge and overall it was superb. We will definitely be returning!

    It’s a beautiful lodge in a peaceful village but half hr to Windermere & Kendal. Just 10 mins from grange over sands. The hot tub was amazing also. Beds were comfortable. It had everything we needed. Couldn’t fault it at all

    . the lodge needs a lot of TLC. The bbq was filthy. The on suite toilet leaked the blinds were broken.. the WiFi didn’t work at all.. the best part was the hot tub and was checked every morning.. overall my kids had a great week which is all that matters… think the owners need to have a word with the cleaners..

    The hot tub was fab and all furniture really comfy, felt just like home! It was spotless too so that was great. Wifi was a bit patchy but it did work more often than not, seemed to work better with the door open? It was the perfect base for some gorgeous walks a short drive away in the lakes!

  • "Another fantastic week at Cartmel Lodge."

    Our third stay in this wonderful lodge. It is well equipped with everything you would need. The hot tub checked every day by the park warden. The owner is very helpful and responds quickly. Close enough for a lovely walk into village for nice food from the cavendish arms and cartmel wine snug. (Was a shame to see Kings Arms and Royal Oak closed down this time.) Can't wait to come back again next year.

  • "The lodge is in need of some TLC."

    Examples include damaged bathroom sink, dishwasher and hot tub lid holder. The DVD buzzed annoyingly.Some of the kitchen equipment is in a poor state, particularly the pans. We found it bizarre that there was a washing machine but no airer. Towels were small and thin. There were no hot tub towels or dressing gowns. We wondered whether the owner has ever lived in the lodge. For example there were no hooks to hang towels and no electricity point near a mirror so drying/curling hair was very difficult. Also the information pack was poor with no information on local facilities, recommendations for dining and walks etc. The visitor book was full and had not been changed since last year. All of this seems a great shame as the lodge is a good size, secluded and in a nice setting. A small amount of effort could make it really nice.

  • "Holiday home was dirty on arrival."

    Floor was filthy with mud and dog hair from previous guests. Brushed floor myself then asked cleaning staff to return, they hoovered floor but did not mop. Normally I would not be bothered by this but due to current global pandemic and having to mop lodge floors myself I didn't feel this was acceptable. This is no complaint to owner of lodge, he is under the impression that more cleaning is being undertaken at present as stated to me on the phone when he informed me about key collection and probably paying extra and unfortunately this is just not the case.

  • "Lovely lodge close to the beautiful village of Cartmel which is a 20minute walk away."

    Lodge was spacious and comfortable and hot tub was great. Just a couple of improvements based on previous experiences in places like this. Mainly those extra touches for example there was no hand soap provided, no little things like salt and pepper/ oil etc No welcome bottle of wine. So you do have to bring everything you can think of whereas other places these are provided. Hot tub lights broken and no shelter meaning on the day/night of the storm we couldn’t use it. Would be perfect on a summers day though! Overall it’s a lovely place and we’d go again, just missing the little extra touches.

    The lodge itself is beautiful and actually much bigger than it looks on the photos. The location was fantastic, close to Cartmel, Windermere and countless beautiful places to walk. The lodge was clean, comfortable, nice and warm and lots of space for our dog to wander. The deck is secure too which was great as he was able to wander around and lay in the sun while we were in the hot tub and I didn't have to worry about him getting out. The facilities were also perfect, the kitchen was equipped with everything we needed to cook a meal to enjoy with friends and there are two bathrooms so no waiting for your turn. Would give this place 10 out of 10 and will definitely be staying again.

  • "Really lovely weekend, couldn’t be happier!"

    Booked as a surprise for my partner for his birthday and he was extremely pleasantly surprised. Hot tub was spacious, clean and a perfect place to sit on a chilly night and star gaze. With no light pollution, we had never seen so many and it made for a perfect evening, or two! Kitchen had 99% of things needed to make any meal and what it didn’t have you could get by with so no drama cooking big scrumptious meals instead of eating out. And the dish washer made the experience a pleasure relaxing together afterwards instead of standing over a sink for 40 minutes. Bed spacious and comfortable. I took some spare loo roll and we needed it by the second day. There was a small amount of tea and coffee, hot chocolate, and sugars so the local shop was ideal for stocking up on bits needed. I did an online shop and had it delivered right to the door of the lodge with was perfect. Kevin on site is very kind and will visit you to say hi and give you his number for wood deliveries for the log burner. The owner is very helpful and replied to my few queries with haste. Overall, amazing weekend, very comfortable, very relaxing and would 100% book this lodge for our next weekend away. Thank you to all that helped me organise it and then helped us enjoy it.

    The bathroom fittings need re-fixing properly to the walls eg: toilet roll holder was completely off. The BBQ had been left absolutely filthy by whoever had last used it so we were unable to use that at all. The cost was not inexpensive, we paid just under £1,000 for 4 nights so I think that although nothing major these are things that definitely need to be looked at and that the BBQ should have been cleaned before we arrived as was the lodge itself. Thank you
