  • "Whilst the lodge has everything you need and is well equipped, we were quite disappointed to be honest to find the property in darkness,no lights outdoors to navigate our way (weather was also against us) it took us a good 5-10 minutes to find the door round the back as it was pitch black."

    We presumed the door was as you walk up the drive. Lighting was very poor. Once finally in it was so hot we had to open the doors and windows. The thermostat had been left on at 30’C, the first night we slept with no covers and windows open (brought in a whole new version of bug life too!) We realised the previous occupants rubbish had also been left in the bin, which absolutely stank by the next morning. There was no (little - washing up liquid and anti bac) cleaning materials left as the bins themselves and the sink drain stunk of curry. I spent the first half hour wiping down the bins and trying to rid the curry odour. No dishwasher tablets left etc The neighbouring lodge occupants kept slamming doors and I was convinced it was something or someone getting through the door. We could hear them talking and each door shutting. The hot tub area could do with some shelter to make it more private - opposite lodge had full view and even shouted over. My partner mentioned the trees on the drive could do with some branches chopping back as they scratched the van. We probably wouldn’t return unfortunately.

  • "We arrived at the lodge to find it freezing cold."

    The heating had obviously not been on for some time, it was minus 2 outside and so cold that the thermostat inside didn't even click! Once we figured out the timer it took all night to heat up. We have stayed in enough of these and each time the property has been climatised upon arrival. Overall the lodge is in good condition but we did feel that for the commanding price it just needs to provide a bit more value for money.

    Very clean and modern, with washer, dryer, towels, hair dryer, dishwasher etc so no need to bring any thing with you. The hot tub is big enough for two although it could do with a cover if it’s raining and maybe some fencing round for privacy. It’s tucked away right at the end so very quiet. Half an hour distance to Bowness and Kendall. Had a lovely stay and would go again.

    Beautiful Lodge. If I had any thing to say probably and it's only a small issues is shelter around the hot tub. The hot tub was great but we are on show when you are in the hot tub and when you are getting in and out. Other than that we would highly recommend and will definitely be back to say at the Shepherds Lodge.

  • ")I don’t think it was worth the price!"

    2) the bed was too soft ( But that’s just a personal preference) the big problem was how it was on wheels and on a smooth surface it just wouldn’t stay still which was quite dangerous!! EG every time you leaned on it. It would move and twice the wheel was near my bear feet!! The first time really hurt the second time I was able to move quickly. 3) For £450 for one night I really think it quite a cheek to only be able to book in at 17.00 and have to leave at 9.00 in the morning?? But that’s my own fault because it was clearly explained that was the case on booking. 4) Again to stay in a one bedroom lodge for one night at the price of £450 and only book in from 17.00 and have to leave the following morning at 9.00 you really would expect maybe a little larger Hot tub?? Or if not it must have some kind of shelter over it?? Even a large retractable umbrella or something to protect you from the sun, Wind and Rain?? But despite my own personal issues it was very nice and i would recommend this to anyone!! We had a great time! But I am very entertaining so of course we had a good time.

    It made us think we're we noisy but we are very sure we wasn't.Thats why we choose a quiet and relaxing new year getaway. The lodge was small and lovely and suited but I know you can't help the weather but it seemed to not stop raining so we could only use the hot tub for about 10 minutes of our stay.Maybe a shelter for the future for your property. Bed on wheels was a bit surprising and did make us chuckle but I didn't sleep very well to be honest, the pillows definitely too soft for me. Bathroom and Kitchen was very nice.

    The blinds in the kitchen had 1/2inch of dust and and grime on them. Mop ringer was broken so couldn’t ring out the mop. The advert was quite deceiving as we thought we was getting the whole of the cabin, where actually it was two cabins in one, so you can hear the neighbours moving around. We did let the booking agent know of all the defects and we was told someone would come, but they never did in the 7 days we were there. When you are paying a premium for something you expect everything to be just right

    The bed was comfy and it was very open and pretty. Some things that put us off was the directions to the lodge once inside the site were wrong, as the lodge is not in 'Meadows End' and the Name sign was on the floor and not in clear view like the rest of the properties. Many of the lamp light bulbs need fixing. Other than that, the property was lovely, the hot tub was a great touch and Netflix was a bonus. With Windermere 30mins away and Blackpool 1hr away it was a suitable location with a range of activities in a nice drive.

    No on site shop which was Disappointing, We had a lovely time and a lovely walk to the village. We was not happy to be checking in at 5pm and out at 9am. This really needs to change. Far to late and early morning and to be asked to leave it as described on the web site was cheeky with it being so early. Strip bedding etc. think that’s not rite at all.

  • "We loved our stay at Shepherds Lodge."

    The directions to the lodge were easy to follow and we found it no prob at all. It was good to be able to go direct to the property and get the key without having a stand in a queue to check in. It would have been nice to have been able to check in a little earlier though. Inside the lodge was exactly as the photos had shown and we couldn't really want for anything more stocked in the kitchen. The living room area was clean and comfortable and bright. The only issue we had was in the bedroom, the mattress we found a little hard, in fact I ended up on the settee. The bathroom was lovely, maybe an extra toilet roll would be good as we ran out on the last day due to there not being much on the rolls but honestly that is the only thing I can say negative. The best part for us was the hot tub, we hadn't been in a hot tub prior to the lodge and weren't sure what to expect. But, the water was a lovely temperature when we got there so we unpacked and jumped straight in. We have a couple of points regarding the privacy though. The cabin attached and the two further down can see the hot tub no problem if they walked by and the cabin next door, if they didn't have their blind closed they would have been looking directly at us so a bit more screening would have been nice. We reversed the car up the drive for extra cover. The second point is maybe a covering would be good, lots of bits of tree were falling into the water so a bit of time was spent removing these not relaxing. It was a bit disappointing to have to be out at 9am. We would recommend this lodge.

Enjoyed the hot tub! Loved our stay only thing I would mark down would be the check in and check out times. Checking in at 5pm and out at 9am you loose a whole day. Never stayed somewhere with such a late check in time and such an early leaving time. Was abit disappointing as we was only staying for 3 days, it seemed to go really quickly with not actually getting to spend any time there on the first or last day, apart from that I would recommend!

    The mattress was very worn, to the point you could see it dipping where other people have slept, there was not much support left in it at all. I’ve seen that a previous person has left on the reviews that the lodge needed a new mattress as well. Considering that the bed is probably the most important part of a stay, it was very disappointing to not have the best of sleeps due to this. I would like to hope that this is passed to the owners and they take note of this, other than that, the lodge itself was fantastic, if the mattress was replaced/sorted out, I would be very happy returning to this place and recommending to others.

  • "The cleanliness of the property was disappointing."

    As checking in later and checking out earlier I would have expected the lodge to be spotless as extra measures for Covid-19 cleaning should have been met. The shower curtain was covered in black mould and we had to contact Sykes to have it replaced. I also lodged a complaint about some utensils being unclean and some surfaces were sticky from drinks. Also there was food splashed on the kitchen windows. When I spilled some water when washing up, I wiped it up with kitchen roll and found that the floor was dirty too. I was not contacted after the shower curtain was replaced the next day to see if I was satisfied. It is such a shame about the lack of cleanliness as the location of the lodge was perfect and it is in a very peaceful, tranquil setting.

The hot tub was always ready to use and cleaned/serviced every morning, and instructions for the log fire were clear and easy to follow.

    The lodge was beautiful, finished to a very high standard, literally can't fault it! We are a family of 2 adults and an infant, our little one had such a fun time running exploring each room, and using the hot tub (with the temp turned down!) the house was naturally very warm which was a nice treat in winter. Using the log fire and hot tub were the perfect way to unwind at the end of the day, it was magical, and so lovely being out in the countryside. The kitchen was well equipt and had everything in that we needed to make a gousto meal that we brought with us. (Note to future guests bring olive oil, salt/pepper, and washing up liquid & cloth so you don't have to buy any.) There is a convenience store about 5mins drive away if you forget anything though. The area is stunning, plenty to do. Food is gorgeous from the Cavendish Pub. Locals are so friendly. Would definitely return!

    The cover was really heavy to take off and put back on so if you were elderly or not very strong You would struggle with this. Also it is not sheltered by a pagoda so when it rained you either had to get out or get wet. We had a power cut on the second night but it was not the Internal fuse box. We called the holiday company who got someone to come round and rectify the problem which turned out to be the main power box outside the property so we were waiting an hour or so in the dark whilst it was sorted out. We noticed the lodge next door had the same problem.

    On our arrival, the Cabin took us some time to find (Shepherds Lodge). The Semi detached Cabin adjoined to ours (which was empty) had outside lighting on in advance, where as ours did not, so was very difficult in the dark not only to locate and find, but even to carefully maneuver without tripping over. When we turned on the outside lights, we noticed rubbish bags strewn near the Key box, which in our opinion was not good, considering we checked in at 10pm and you had the whole day to organise. The facilities inside the Cabin were good and helpful. The Jacuzzi on first use had a strange smell to it and water was only semi clear. When we went to use it the next day, the water was literally like a swamp look at 2pm. We were hoping after going out for the day on our return the cleaner would have this resolved. However, on our return at 6pm, we noticed it was far worse and had an awful pungent smell which caused us to retch. We phoned to complain and a guy came out approximately 6:30pm and finished emptying and restoring it with clean water. The job was completed by 9pm, bearing in mind this was our last night. We have video and photo footage showing the above. Not at all impressed. Steve and Jeanette.

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.
