  • "Really enjoyed staying at the Lodge for a second time."

    The Lodge is spotlessly clean and highly functional. Very comfortable stay and enjoyed the hot tub and privacy. The Lodge is on a secluded spot on the park. The only slight downside is the height of the trees opposite the decking area. The trees block the evening sun. Would it be possible for the estate to trim the height of the trees? Lovely stay.

  • "We had a lovely romantic stay at Crook Lodge."

    The fixtures and fittings and decor looked new and was extremely clean throughout. The Lodge is in a secluded position, the best on the site in our view. We sat out in the sun in peace and tranquility and the hot tub was lovely and relaxing after a day of touring the lakes. Would love to come again.

  • "We absolutely loved it and most certainly stay there again."

    Just couple of things, we didn’t find cleanliness to high standards. There were plenty of cobwebs and floor was bit dusty. Also be much better if checkout time was bit later, about 10 - 10:30. Other than that? Awesome

    Okay we had problems at first with the TV but we overcome that and in my opinion we didn't travel to watch the "idiot box". Would have no problems booking this again.

    The hot tub was also a massive god send after all that walking.

  • "We had the most amazing week away."

    100% worth the money as it’s in the perfect location, only 10 mins away from any takeaway and 40 mins from windermere. We would come back in a heartbeat. Only thing we found although it wasn’t a problem for us as our next door neighbours were so considerate of us but the property is listed as detached, however it is very much semi detached it is private so we didn’t find this an issue. The wifi isn’t the best either and the tv hasn’t got options of netflix or anything like that, so i wouldn’t suggest bringing your own laptop where you can watch your favourite shows. Despite all of this we honestly had the best week away and it was made so nice because we had a lovely lodge to come back to from a busy day, especially the hot tub was the best perfect treat. Overall we are planning on looking to book again next year as it was honestly so perfect.

  • "We stayed in this lovely lodge for Christmas."

    It's warm, cosy and comfortable and in a very peaceful location, (currently being the last lodge in the park). It was a short walk to the interesting shops and pubs in Cartmel and also a fairly easy walk to Grange over Sands. The hot tub and log burner were lovely to have. Unlike some other reviewer, we found the bed and seatee very comfortable and our next door neighbours were very quiet. The only problems that we found, were that it was a little difficult to find in the dark, the front door was a bit difficult to lock and unlock and the bath water wouldn't get hot enough to have a relaxing bath, (but we did have the hot tub so it didn't matter much). All in all the lodge is great.

  • "We have just spent 4 nights at Crook Lodge, and thoroughly enjoyed our whole experience."

    The lodge is warm, secluded and has everything you need for a perfect romantic getaway. The only thing I could fault with this property would be that the front door seems to stick and is hard to lock/unlock, this isn't an issue though as the door to the bedroom works fine. I'd suggest that a property guide/manual should also be on site, for instructions on the hot tub/log burner. We couldn't seem to find the WiFi password anywhere either, but this again made for the more secluded retreat we were looking for so wasn't an issue for us. Overall we would 100% come back to Crook Lodge, the place itself and the area around makes for a perfect getaway.

    It was clean but the sofa was very uncomfortable and the bed even worse. The mattress was like sleeping on a floor it was that uncomfortable. Although it's a very nice park nice and quiet bar the neighbours. The local pub in allithwaite was very nice and the owners were very welcoming.

  • "On the whole we enjoyed our stay but were let down by a few minor issues, these included: cleanliness of the property (cobwebs in the ceilings, dust and dirt, plus stains on pillows and duvet)."

    Based on the early checkout and late check in we would expect an immaculate property. Secondly, some of the facilities are not great (the broom is broken and sliced my hand when trying to use, the hoover isn’t great, one of the hobs didn’t work, the clock didn’t work and some lights didn’t work). Lastly, and this is something that is not Syke’s fault, but our neighbours were very, very loud and kept us up most nights unfortunately. Aside from this, the accommodation is good, is in a great location and the bed is probably one of the comfiest I’ve stayed on! The hot tub is also immaculate and we made use of it every day during our stay. We would visit again but would hope that the mentioned points and attention to detail when managing the property are improved on.

  • "Location was brilliant."

    We would cycle into cartmel and it would only about 5 minutes. The plot where lodge is on is very private and quiet. Perfect for chilling out in the hot tub. Segway tour in Cartmel was good fun. Loved Unsworths yard brewery in Cartmel as it had a nice little court yard and the pizzas were delicious. Just don’t order the Bramble cocktail as it was tasteless. Would recommend booking pub meals or restaurants as it was busy and one night we struggled for somewhere to eat. The Cavendish Arms is a lovely pub with delicious food definitely recommend. Really friendly staff too.

  • "Cleanliness wasn't great, had to get brush and vacuum out to remove cobwebs in lounge."

    Bedroom and bathroom corners. Similar issue outside upon entering which instantly gave poor impression upon entering. Hot water was below heat expectation for showering and bath. Although furniture, kitchen facilities and hottub were to ab acceptable standard. Just felt with significant price increase for these properties that overall cleanliness should be much better. Grounds and peaceful area was pleasant, but for me it's unlikely I'd return here especially if prices continue to increase.

    Flies a problem maybe due to the sheep that visited frequently. A bottle of wine or something would have been nice. Please note no bath robes or larger towels for hot tub. We enjoyed feeding the birds in the trees next to the lodge and bought seed, feeders, nuts and fat balls. Lovely to sit outdoors and breakfast and even poor weather didn’t stop this. Had a lovely meal in the Pig and Whistle. Perfect location to explore the Lake District.

  • "Absolutely stunning place."

    The cottage had everything we needed and more, it was spacious enough for the two of us to move around with plenty of comfort. The bed was the most comfortable bed we have ever slept in. The cottage is located at the end of the ‘road’ which was lovely, no one driving past or disturbing us. Hot tub turned itself on a few times and the first we looked at each other a bit frightened but we figured out that it must be warming itself up! We stayed for 7 nights and had the best time. We would highly recommend renting a boat on lake Windermere and doing a hike on Keswick Via Sharp Edge, along with going to the safari zoo. We explored a lot on our bikes and enjoyed it so much. We were really really sad to leave, but for sure we will be back. Thank you for making our experience a 5* stay!

  • "We arrived at the cottage and it was really clean which put us at ease given the current pandemic."

    Although we weren’t provided with any soap to wash our hands with or any toilet roll so first thing was to go to the shop to buy some for the week, very disappointed as something so simple should’ve been provided. We also were not given any matches to light the fire with so we ended up just using the heating, luckily during our stay it wasn’t too cold so it didn’t bother us! There wasn’t adequate hot water to run a bath or have a proper shower - I would say lukewarm water, if it wasn’t for the hot tub it wouldn’t have been great after a long day of walking! We tried to ring skyes everyday but couldn’t get through to anyone to try and fix these issues which was very disappointing! Given the changes to our arrival and departure times we would’ve appreciated something such as a bottle of wine or chocolate/coffee etc just to make up for the last minute changes, other places we’ve stayed have provided these and it’s a very nice touch! I would come and visit again if these issues were amended but a note to self to bring toilet roll.

  • "There was a few issues with the Lodge."

    Overall it was ok. But what we expected for what we paid was a much higher standard. For example the bath hot tap we could only get luke warm water. Site maintenance tried to fix it but couldn't so they suggested we use the shower to fill the bath. Disappointed at the size of the hot tub found it quite cramped as I am quite tall. Rubbish collection was only once, maybe recycling bins would help for glass, paper, etc. A welcome pack would have been a nice touch, milk in the fridge etc. (we always get one with Hoseasons) We usually book a lodge with a hot tub with Hoseasons and never had any problems with their holidays. But we would thought we would give your company a try and see if you could match up to Hoseasons standard, but sadly your firm didn't match their standard, so we will not re book with sykes holiday's.

    It was lovely to see the wildlife which included squirrel, deer and various birds. It is not mentioned anywhere about the high standards of the hot tub. It is drained after every stay. It is also tested every day during your stay. It is private and not overlooked. We do however recommend that you take extra towels for the hot tub. The bed is so comfortable you can guarantee a great night sleep. Well equipped, you shouldn't want for anything. There was one downside though that it is adjoining to another lodge and unfortunately our neighbours were a little noisy into the early hours.

This is our second stay with Sykes, having stayed in a big family lodge with our family previously. Both times we have been provided with exactly what we wanted. The booking and contact from Sykes is excellent. The only small issue is that maybe if the lodge was ready earlier as I believe it was we could have been notified instead of waiting until 1500hrs, because as check out is 10am, that is quite a bit of time lost. When the lodge next door was vacated it was cleaned by midday.

The property

This superb lodge is situated a 15 minute stroll from the historic village of Cartmel, at the top of the exclusive Pastures lodge park in a slightly elevated position towards the boundary of this 26 acre park with woodland and glade, thus affording extra outdoor space and privacy.

Immaculately-presented in a quality contemporary style, this spacious lodge has open plan living with patio doors from the living area and a bedroom that opens on to the spacious elevated decking screened by glass with patio furniture and hot tub.

On entering the lodge there is a vestibule with seating area and the washer/dryer which leads into the open plan living space with a large comfortable leather settee and woodburner, perfect to relax in front of on those chillier evenings.

When warmer, open the patio doors and step onto the decking perhaps for an alfresco meal or drink and listen to the sound of bird song.

The well-equipped stylish kitchen has integral appliances, granite surfaces and has a very useful wine chiller.

Stepping into the spacious bedroom there are also patio doors leading to the private decking and the en-suite bathroom has a bath with rain shower over and with beautiful contemporary fixtures and fittings.

The lodge also benefits from a hot tub allowing guests to relax after a hard day exploring the local area.

Picturesque Cartmel is just three quarters of a mile away with its 12th century priory, and interesting independent shops and, of course, its eateries and pubs, including the infamous L'enclume restaurant together with a great selection of other restaurants.

There is also the racecourse which holds meets during the summer months when the whole village is open, so a fantastic day out is within walking distance.

Locally, there is Newby Bridge, which is at the southerly tip of Windermere, where you can take a boat cruise and view the stunning lakeland scenery on route to Bowness or Ambleside.

Cyclists will also delight in the many trials especially in close by Grizedale Forrest.

Grange-over-Sands is just 2 miles away, a Lakeland Edwardian coastal town with estuary promenade walk, a chocolatier and cafes.

Humpreys Head is a pretty walk with coastal views and bluebell-filled woodland and this point is said to be the last known sighting of a wolf.

This fabulous lodge is perfectly positioned for exploring this glorious lakeland area both near or further afield all year round.

Return back to the lodge at the end of the day and enjoy total rest and relaxation.
