    The only downside from a fantastic break at a lovely lodge was that the BBQ was not available due to maintenance and we could not use the hot tub on the first night as it was not up to temperature

  • "Overall we were very happy with the experience and property."

    However, on the first day the hot tub was cold. We called the site manager who advised that the hot tub had been emptied and refilled due to the previous guests. We would have preferred to have been informed of this on arrival as opposed to having to contact the site manager to find out the problem. We therefore were unable to use the hot tub on the first night.

    What a beautiful, well positioned cabin. All the rooms were comfortable and contained everything we needed. The hot tub was superb and the little touches, Christmas decorations and a bottle of wine made it that extra bit special. We will definitely be going back!

  • "The log cabin was well equipped yet we were extremely disappointed to find just one toilet roll left in the toilets upon arrival, perhaps we assumed wrong but we would have expected more and therefore we had to go out to get additional, which took 1+hr due to the storm and the only roads to Ulverston closed."

    Would suggest for future stays that enough toilet roll is provided for guests as it's the last thing you want to have to worry about. There was a power cut on the morning of check out, Noel who takes care of the cabins didn't respond to our call for 45 minutes, by the time he arrived and let us know there wasn't anything we could do, it was close to the check out time so we were very disappointed to lose the Sunday at the cabin of course this isn't anybodies fault specifically but it definitely dampened our experience.

    As it is self-catering, we just leave a toilet roll for arrival, guests do bring their own on the notes in the cabin it does say if you’re missing anything we may have it. Had you asked we would have sorted extra rolls. I do agree the storm was unfortunate on your last day and out of our hands. Property Owner

  • "We have a fantastic time at Oak Lodge."

    It was so peaceful, relaxing, spacious and a very comfortable lodge. All appliances were of the very highest standard. There where other lodges nearby, but each one was secluded by trees so it was very private. The hot tub was an added bonus. The nearby town of Ulverston, was a lovely place. Lovely tea rooms, pubs, and shops etc. Don't forget the Laurel and Hardy museum, a must if your a fan, and also the walk by the canal was lovely. Alot of beautiful places not too far away, Kendal was a wonderful place, so was Hawkshead and Coniston. We couldn't do as much as we wanted to do, due to the rain but we still had a great time. The scenery is stunning.

    Glad you had a lovely stay, nice to hear what things guests have done while on holiday hear. thankyou for your feedback. Property Owner

    The lodge had everything we needed and was in a fantastic location, far enough out to be nice and secluded and relaxing when in the hot tub, but close enough to the local areas and a fantastic base for travelling further afield. The hot tub was a welcome addition, especially with all the walking we were doing. The hosts really went above and beyond with the information provided and were easily contactable with quick replies if needed. Thank you for a lovely stay, we will definitely be booking again!

    Also because it was wood and in the heat it had swollen, a lot of the doors wouldn’t shut and were squeaky- the wardrobe in the main bedroom and the second bedroom door was the worst! But would I go back? In a heartbeat!

  • "Oak Lodge was absolutely beautiful!"

    Aesthetically it was modern and cosy, with Steve even putting up Christmas decorations for us prior to arrival. The lodge was fully equipped with everything we needed (kitchen utensils, plates, pans etc), even down to dishwasher tablets and fairy liquid demonstrating they had thought ahead. There was even a bottle of wine and a list of 'Ulverston Eats' waiting for us on arrival if we wanted to order food on our first night. Just what we needed after a 7 hour drive! They honestly went above and beyond to think of us. The hot tub is huge clean, and was clean and ready for use (in terms of the water being heated up) by the second day, as Steve will change the water and put in all the cleaning products prior to new guests arriving. The lodges are all situated within reasonable distance of each other however in a fashion that you still have lots of privacy, even when in the hot tub. The lodges are high up in the Cumbria countryside with stunning views from the cabin or in the hot tub, but you're also only a 5 minute drive to the nearest supermarkets. Steve also owns 2 very friendly cats, one of whom made herself cosy with us in the evenings and who we are missing very much! For us, this was the perfect restful and festive getaway we needed after a difficult 2020. No complaints at all and we would love to return! I've already recommended to many friends! Thank you for ending our 2020 on a positive note!

    The cabin is stunning and couldn't fault it. However, we only got use of the hot tub for a small part of our stay. The hot tub stopped working and we were unable to use it and there was nobody on hand who was able to help with this issue. This was extremely disappointing for us as the hot tub was the reason we chose this accommodation

    Many thanks for your feedback and we are glad you enjoyed your stay. The owner 'meets and greets' all of his guests and advises them if they have any issues to please phone him or knock on his door as he is on site. The owner prides himself on ensuring all his guest have a great holiday as you can see from previous feedback. Unfortunately, he only received a call from you late on Sunday evening before you left on the Monday morning, as he missed your earlier text. The owner would certainly have assisted you if he had been made aware sooner. Property Owner

    We were quickly left to enjoy the peace and location which is wonderful, quiet and rural. Basics for tea/coffee were already in the lodge as well as a bottle of wine.
