  • "Outstanding accommodation!"

    We travelled as a family of 5; 2 adults and 3 children (5 year old and 2 year old twins) this was a very last minute booking, much to my horror, as in booked it Friday morning and set off an hour later! Turned out to be one of the best weekends away we’ve had! I’m very fussy with cleanliness, this exceeded my expectations I usually ship the husband out with the kids for an hour to unpack and fully clean the place when we go away but we were able to unpack and get straight out!! We didn’t take travel cots but we put the mattress from the top bunk on the floor and the twins were able to sleep on there, our eldest had one of the other rooms to himself. The lodge is immaculate with a very well thought out floor plan. We didn’t use the outside space but the view was lovely, can imagine it would be perfect on a summer night with a glass of wine! Plenty on outdoor furniture and the decking area was big enough for a large family to enjoy or eat outside. I’d seen a couple of people had mentioned that the living room furniture wasn’t very comfortable, I do get it, and on a personal preference I’d would have a more ‘lounge-y’ sofa but it was plenty comfortable for the evenings when watching the Tv and relaxing so not really an issue for us! The WiFi wasn’t great but we used our personal hotspots on our mobiles and had no problems. We didn’t use the sky Tv so I can’t comment on that but Netflix and the general Tv channels were fine for our stay. We absolutely loved our stay here and the location was just perfect, we’ve been looking for our next stay!, hopefully it won’t be too long until we can return!

    Thanks for your feedback - we do appreciate your taking time to tell us how much you enjoyed your stay . Cleanliness is very important to us and we endeavour to keep very high standards - look forward to welcoming you again in the near future Property Owner

    It turns out there is a safety cut off switch in the lodge, which had to be re_set. Could you please put a note in the Lodge instructions 'What to do it there is no water to the Lodge' this would of been very helpful , and would of saved a lot of hassle. However this will not deter is from returning.

  • "Windermere Lodge is nice enough but not what I would describe as a luxurious lodge by any means."

    The sofa and upright side chairs are very stylish but extremely uncomfortable and not welcomed after a long day walking/hiking. Thick dust in the bedrooms which has obviously been there for some time (I have photos) The plastic green covering that had been placed over the units in the master bedroom are split on some of the drawers and lifting on headboard with visible glue where a repair had been attempted and edging of bedside units also lifting it was all very unsightly and not luxurious at all (I have photos). The duvet was stained. The fridge door needs attention as it has dropped. There were no empty kitchen cupboards In which to store food. I cleaned three of the bifold door windows which were very dirty so I could enjoy the view of the lake. I booked this lodge as it had such great reviews and is described in your details as luxurious but in my opinion it was definitely not worth the money I paid. I have stayed at Falbarrow many times and rented much better lodges for a lot less money. Falbarrow is a beautiful holiday park, we had a fantastic break and I will definitely go back there but I would not go back to this lodge. Extremely disappointed.

    I am sorry to hear of your comments on your recent stay in Windermere Lodge. It is rare to have negative feedback but we do take your comments on board and all issues have been passed to our management company who are already addressing the issues you raised. As the advertising and photos shows the lodge is decorated and furnished in a contemporary style with high end furniture and has been generally well received by guests. The kitchen units are modern and stylish and well equipped - there are cupboards for food storage as well as glassware and dinnerware so I am sorry that these were not enough for your stay. We want all our guests to enjoy the lodge and have a comfortable stay therefore we are pleased to hear you had a fantastic break and hope that the issues you raised did not detract too much from your stay.

    The lodge was clean in all the main areas bathroom, kitchen and bedrooms etc but not sure how often they have a deep clean. Around the edges of the windows and the venitian blinds were quite dusty and down the sides of the chairs had not been hovered/cleaned. Would be interestred to know if this is something that is done weekly or not. It did not detract from our stay as the lodge met all our needs and was comfortable.

The property

Windermere is a stylish and new lodge, light and spacious situated in the Beech Hill area of Fallbarrow Park, in a quieter area surrounded by mature trees.

It’s just a hop skip and a jump to the clubhouse and facilities and the same to the lake and marina.

You’ll also enjoy glimpses of the lake a few yards away.

There are two double bedrooms and two bathrooms, making it a great choice for couples with plenty of relaxation room.

A spacious deck wraps around the lodge – perfect to simply unwind and enjoy the peaceful setting.

Windermere Lodge offers guests a relaxing retreat furnished to a high standard.

Fallbarrow Park is one of the loveliest Parks in the lake district, sitting right on the shores of Lake Windermere, with views across the lake and up to the fells all around.

The bustling, cosmopolitan village of Bowness-on-Windermere is 0.2 miles walk away handy for many shops, bars and restaurants.

From Bowness Pier you can start an unforgettable day out on the water with Windermere Lake Cruises – board a beautiful cruiser and hop on and off or rent a canoe or a motorboat.

If you wish to stay closer to your lodge, Fallbarrow has on site bar, restaurant, deli, as well as a children’s play area, beer garden, picnic area and woodland walks.

Further afield, drive up to Windermere village – two miles away, or the bustling market town of Ambleside four miles away and you are only four miles from Troutbeck village at the foot of the Kirkstone Pass which winds its way up over the high fells and then down to Ullswater.

All in all a fabulous location and lodge for your Windermere adventure.
