    The view of the lake from the lodge is just fabulous with very private and peaceful surroundings.There is lots to watch while relaxing on the deck and there are not many places in the Lake District where you can walk or sit right on the shores of Windermere. The lodge itself is comfortable and reasonably well equipped. The bathrooms were very clean. The kitchen area, sitting area and bedrooms were reasonably clean. ...

    The view of the lake from the lodge is just fabulous with very private and peaceful surroundings.There is lots to watch while relaxing on the deck and there are not many places in the Lake District where you can walk or sit right on the shores of Windermere. The lodge itself is comfortable and reasonably well equipped. The bathrooms were very clean. The kitchen area, sitting area and bedrooms were reasonably clean. The site bar/restaurant had a good choice of menu at reasonable prices, good portions and good quality. The staff in the bar were very attentive. There were some down sides to the lodge: On arrival there was a very strong smell of floor cleaner, perfume difusers in the lounge area and a strong perfume on the bedding all which affected my wife's lung condition. In spite of opening windows, these did not dissipate until 5 days after arrival. The lodge would benefit from a 'spring clean' to clear cobwebs and dust under furniture and in drawers. Opening all the windows allowed in lots of flies. There was no welcome pack provided, if you want to put the kettle on when you arrive have tea/coffee/milk with you as there were only sachets of sugar in the kitchen. A high chair is provided but none of the crockery, glassware, cutlery is suitable for small children. All the outdoor furniture was dirty with little provided to clean it, the barbeque was rusted and not very clean. The description states that there is parking for 2 cars but this is very tight and would not accommodate 2 average sized family saloons. The instruction folder states that power cuts can occur but no torch is provided in case this happens during dark hours. Fortunately when the power went during our stay it was during day light hours. We would visit again because of the superb location but we have stayed in similar properties with a front line sea view where more has been provided for less cost.

The property

An immaculately-presented lodge situated on the popular Fallbarrow Holiday Park on the fringe of Bowness-on-Windermere.

This modern, New England-style lodge rests directly on the lake shore and provides guests with sublime views across Lake Windermere, making it the perfect choice for those seeking a touch of luxury or a romantic retreat.

Tucked away in a quiet area of the park, this beautiful Windermere lodge has a king-size double bedroom with an en-suite, along with a double and a twin, a contemporary shower room and a bright open plan living area.

Outside, the large decking to the front and side provides direct access to a private beach area, perfect for swimming, canoeing and fishing, and is also a splendid sun trap for much of the day; a tranquil space offering the chance to watch boats bob by under the shadow of the surrounding mountains, a perfect addition for an alfresco feast with friends and family.

Facilities on this fantastic site include a restaurant, pub with beer garden, shop and deli, and a children's play area.

Bowness offers something for everyone, from enticing tourist attractions to shops and boutiques, restaurant and bars.

Guests seeking to explore the water may wish to sail some of the lake’s 10 miles, or try water skiing, canoeing or kayaking.

Those lacking sturdy sea legs can enjoy Windermere’s 18-hole golf course, the perfect destination to while away a few hours, plus there are many walking paths, including the Dales Way, and cycling routes available to explore locally.

A short drive will take you to the traditional towns of Windermere and Ambleside, offering a selection of shops and eateries, or visit The Armitt, a small museum, library and gallery with interesting collections, which offers the story of the area through the ages.

This very special Windermere lodge, with its spectacular views, won't fail to impress you at any time of the year.
