  • "Lovely little lodge in rural setting."

    Quite remote but next to farmhouse and another lodge. Scenery beautiful. The owner popped over to check everything was in order. Would recommend.

  • "We had a very relaxed and comfortable stay at South Lodge."

    The owners Janice and David are very welcoming, the property is well equipped and spotlessly clean and set in a stunning location. Thank you so much for a highly enjoyable stay.

  • "A lovely little getaway."

    The lodge is a good size, extremely clean and comfortable. There is no phone signal whatsoever but this is more than made up for with a very good, super fast WiFi. Better than at home in London! Beautiful views all down the valley and some lovely walks right from the door. Good location for exploring Windermere and the rest of the lakes further afield. Had a wonderful time that went too quickly, would recommend.

  • "South Lodge was very clean , comfortable and made really good use of the space."

    The garden outside was a real bonus even in the October sunshine. It is situated on a lovely farm, with superb views in all directions. Longsleddale is very quiet compared with some areas of the Lake District with fabulous views of the stars at night, and we spent much of the week walking and climbing fells in this dale. But it was only 10 minutes from the supermarkets in Kendal, and not far from Windermere , Ambleside and Haweswater. David and Janice were most welcoming, and took time to talk about the farm.

  • "We really enjoyed our holiday to the South Lodge."

    The property exceeded our expectations; the inside has recently been refurbished to a high standard and it was spotlessly clean on arrival. The hosts were very welcoming. Perfect for two people.

  • "Amazing holiday rental, the cabin was amazing and the landscape it’s set in is second to none."

    The owners are brilliant, so welcoming and such nice people. It’s such a quiet, peaceful and tranquil location to be living. I will definitely be stopping here again, in fact I won’t stop anywhere else when visiting the Lake District in future.

  • "Lovely location, very peaceful."

    Lodge nicely furnished and very clean. Owners were friendly and welcoming. Didn’t cater to children but I knew that in advance from the description so just bought all the stuff I needed. Would highly recommend to friends and family and would definitely re-visit.

  • "My partner and I had an absolutely lovely time here."

    Accomodation 5 stars surroundings absolutely stunning. The owner was very hospitable and showed us round, and explained everything. He even introduced us to his little adorable lambs, who I helped to bottle feed. The accommodation is not to far from the centre, plenty nice shops and restaurants. If you are looking for a peaceful and relaxing time away then you will not be disappointed. Thankyou for a memorable time. Will be returning.

    Open shower was issue with water spraying out, and smooth shower floor was real issue resolved with our own mats. Really comfortable & exceptionally clean & well equipped otherwise.

North And South Lodges

Kendal 6 miles. These two lovely detached lodges are set on the owners’ working sheep farm, in a rural location, within the valley of Longsleddale, the location of the Postman Pat books, six miles from the town of Kendal within the beautiful Lake District National Park. Ideal for a couple or small family, these delightful holiday homes offer a great base for exploring the area on foot, by bike or in the car. With stunning country and hill views, both of these lodges are set on the ground floor, with both having two bedrooms – a double with walk-in wardrobe and a twin, together with an open plan living area. Outside at both properties is parking, with North Lodge offering a decked area with furniture and South Lodge has a decked area, patio and a raised lawned garden. As these lodges are in the Lake District National Park, there’s an abundance of walks all around, as well as a number of cycle routes in the area. Just six miles away is the market town of Kendal offering stone ruins of a 12th century castle, art gallery, shops and pubs. The National Trust owned Sizergh Castle is close by, as is Levens Hall. Also within reach is the village of Staveley from where you can explore the wonderful Kentmere Valley, and the village itself has shops, a café and a brewery. Also in the area are Windermere, Bowness and Ambleside and whilst staying at one of these lovely holiday homes a trip on the Lakeland Steamer on Lake Windermere is a must. Two charming lodges with plenty of Lake District attractions and places to visit within easy reach.

About the location


Windermere 8 miles.

A historic market town with a fine reputation for shopping, Kendal nestles on the banks of the River Kent and is known as the Southern Gateway to the Lakes. Its old cobbled lanes and byways branch off the attractive main street, and the stone ruins of 12th century Kendal Castle sit perched on a hill with views over the town. Visit The Abbot Hall Art Gallery, its regular collection holding portraits by Kendal born George Romney and works by Turner and Ruskin, with other exhibitions through its links with the Tate. Both Sizergh Castle and Levens Hall with its superb Topiary Garden are nearby, as are limestone escarpments for easy walking, offering thrilling views of the Lakeland Mountains, the Howgills and Morecambe Bay. Kendal itself is ideally placed for exploring South Lakeland, the Yorkshire Dales and beyond. With other attractions such as Kendal Museum and the Museum of Lakeland Life, the fascinating Quaker Tapestry, Lake Windermere and the wider National Park within easy reach, Kendal provides a superb base for a relaxing break.
