"Add coat hooks/towel hooks!"
"Lovely cabin, ideal for what we wanted"
"The property was very clean and tidy and the heaters were very efficient but the cottage was also very small."
The hot tub ,although under cover, was also open to the elements. The estate was very remote down some single track roads and their was little walking directly from the estate unless you walked down the road. The one signposted walk was inaccessible due to a barbed wire fence.
"We had lovely stay in Ash Loge."
The lodge was clean cosy and well equiped. Set on farm in very peacefull scenery. We both enjoyed jumping in hot tube every evening and even strong winds didnt stop us as it sits under roof, perfect! Lovely views of the hils and great place for morning coffee i loved it. Recommend to all for romantic, relaxing break!
"We stayed for a week and it was really great!"
Not big place, but has everything you need, it's nice, clean and cozy. The hot tub is under the roof which is really big help when the weather is not good so you can use it at any time without rain pouring on your head! More places should have sheltered jacuzzi. Kitchen is well equipped, with tea towels, washing liquid and sponge, rubbish bags, there was tea, coffee, sugar and some milk sticks in the fridge, salt and pepper and even aluminium foil. Bottle of wine and crisps on arrival. Fantastic! The cabin has hair dryer and even bathrobes! The hand soap was provided but no other toiletries. 2 rolls of toilet paper, as we spent most days out, it was enough. If not, there's shops in the village you can buy everything (aldi is about 10 min drive from cottage). We really appreciate how clean it was (apart from cobwebs in the bedroom above chandelier -those were thick, yikes
"Loved the break nice and quiet withh privacy"
"The lodge was in a perfect setting and had a warm homely feel."
My husband and I enjoyed our stay and will definitely be returning.
"Very cosy, peaceful and comfortable place to stay."
The surrounding scenery was lovely and I would definitely stay again.
"An excellent break for my 50th Birthday."
Quiet & Relaxing which is what we wanted. Hot tub not up to temp on 1st night but was aware this might be the case so not a problem. Would highly recommend and use again ourselves in the future. Only fault was the April Weather, but can’t help when my birthday is
"Lovely accommodation very well fitted and all the equipment was first date."
The surroundings countryside and views are second to none. We very much enjoyed our weeks break. Thank you.
"Lovely cabin and views, unfortunately the toilet seat was broken when we arrive and the shower isn’t very powerful."
There was a power cut while we was there which is no fault of the host but I did have to wait nearly 2 hours for a response and the same day the hose went missing off the decking and the host was again messaged as was going to find out the next day where it was and then unfortunately we didn’t hear anything back regarding this. There was also 2 cats and a dog that kept approaching the cabin in the day which did stop us from using the hot tub as one of the cats was trying to get into the cabin and made itself comfortable on the hot tub.
"We had a lovely 3 nigth stay at ash lodge for my partner's 40th birthday the property was immaculate and so cosy and homely the hot tube was an added bonus we did have a bit of snow and rain while we was there and it was blowing in on us while in the the hot tube so I think a piece of pvc plastic on the arch way opposite the hot tube would help in the bad weather but that said we would definitely return to ash lodge in the future."
"Beautiful lodge in a picturesque position."
Fantastic views, to watch deer, rabbits. Lovely and warm with very comfy bed. Hot tub was nice and warm. Cockerell was an issue for me, and the new frying pan was not an indication pan, so did not work.
"Fantastic stay at Ash Lodge."
Well presented and clean. Extremely cosy and comfortable in the evenings. Would definitely recommended! Thank You
"Perfect in every way - Location, comfort and facilities."
The lodge is within reasonable distance to places we wanted to visit. The town of ulverston is very pretty with some good places to eat. Ordinarily, I sleep poorly when not in my own bed. There wasn’t a hope of this here, the bed was so comfortable I slept like a log each night. Even my worry of being cold at the lodge this time of year was eased, sometimes it got too warm (this is in no way a complaint) Bathroom was big enough for what you need whilst away. Kitchen, although compact, again, has everything you could need for a few days break away and the few essentials to clean were very helpful alongside the lovely wine and milk that was kindly left. Being able to sit in the hot tub on an evening and watch the stars topped off this wonderful visit.
"EXCELLENT Everything was 100% perfect, beautiful location, very quiet and private."
The hot tub was great,even though the weather was quite cold. Will definitely be staying again, and would recommend anyone to stay here, you will not be disappointed.
"Ash Lodge was beautiful in a stunning setting!"
It had everything you could possibly need and was the perfect little getaway. The only negatives were the lodge has 2 visiting cats; that live in the barn behind, and previous visitors had clearly allowed them into the lodge and fed them regularly which led to a lot of cat hair everywhere. A minor issue unless like myself you suffer a severe allergy to cats! This was rectified after requesting a hoover from the owners. The hot tub also had exceptionally high levels of chlorine in that caused coughing and eye stinging each time you turned the jets on. This isn’t a negative review though as these issues were minor - I would most definitely return and stay again - one of the best holidays I’ve ever had!
"We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Ash Lodge for honeymoon."
The lodge was spotless, and very home like. They even provided a complimentary bottle of wine. Scenic location with easy access to roads for day tripping and walks, and appreciated our visits from the local farm cat. Would highly recommend
"We visited ash lodge for our honeymoon and had the most perfect time."
It was our first time in the Lake District and it was absolutely spot on. Everything was immaculate and the facilities were spot on. We will definitely be visiting again! Thank you!
"Amazing lodge with everything you could need, clean cosy and comfy with spectacular views"
"Everything was perfect."
We really enjoyed our stay there and the bottle of wine was appreciated .
"A brilliant location, pleasantly quiet and peaceful without be being so remote that you're cut off."
This was our second visit.
"We had an amazing time at ash lodge."
It made our first trip to the lakes memorable and we will definitely be back in the future.
"Lovely lodge in a beautiful setting, peaceful, fantastic views."
Great watching all the different species of birds. The lodge was warm, clean, very well equipped and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Would definitely visit again.
"It really was an absolutely beautiful setting in an ideal location for our wedding anniversary."
Small town less than 10 mins drive away for anything you need. Went for a meal on the Friday night. And Saturday night ordered a takeaway delivery which was great. The hot tub was just incredible looking out onto the fields. Very spacious for 2 people. Me and my wife had an incredible time and the lodge was perfect for what we needed. Would recommend to anyone.
"Highly recommend this property to anyone considering a break to the Lake District."
When we arrived the cabin was warm, cosy and absolutely spotless. The views from the decking were fabulous, and the complimentary bottle of wine was a very nice bonus! Having the hot tub enhanced the experience even more as it was nice to sit back, relax and look at the stars after a long day. The directions to reach the cabin were very clear and absolutely spot on. We were within perfect driving distance to everything we wanted to do including hikes, exploring Windermere and taking in all the beautiful scenery. Ulverston is less than 10 minutes drive away and is such a lovely town. I will absolutely be recommending Ash Lodge to any friends and family who are considering a getaway to the Lake District - I only wish we had stayed longer!
"This was our second stay."
The first at Thimble Cottage this time opting for ash lodge ideal for two & overlooking the hillside good to see the wildlife deer ext. The hot tub ideal bed comfortable well kept and clean lodge . A special thank you to Noel the site manager after a telephone call to him having left a large amount of charity money in a drawer, he found it and returned it to me by registered post the day after and told me to put the cost of postage in the charity box. George & Lynne will be back later in the year.
"We absolutely loved our stay in Ash Lodge."
It was remote but close enough to town if we needed anything. The cabin itself was lovely and cosey which was much needed as the weather was awful! Hottub was such a great touch and everything about it was just perfect. The only slight let down for us was the shower. The water pressure was so bad that it was literally a trickle. But that aside everything else was spot on and we would absolutely stay again!
"Gorgeous relaxing break in an unreal setting."
We had a lovely short break, just what the Dr ordered. No negatives from me I was just a bit gutted I didn't pack my hair dryer as thought there would be one, more my poor planning. Thanks for a lovely stay. We would highly recommend it for a relaxing retreat!!
"A perfect break for us after a busy year, hiked a few mountains and relaxed and spent some quality time together in the hot tub."
We will definitely be back, if it wasn't for my partner needing to work on the 29th we would of extended our stay if it was available. Thankyou for a perfect stay.
"Lovely weekend away, warm and welcoming!"
"Me and my boyfriend stayed here at the end of November 2021."
We arrived at around 4pm to a warm hot tub, all of the lights on and a complimentary bottle of wine which was a lovely touch. The whole weekend was fantastic, the hot tub is ideal for two people and the lodge itself is spacious, homely and comfortable. The kitchen is well stocked with utensils and cutlery etc ready for you to bring your own food. The directions given were also very helpful, however, when the postcode was typed into Apple maps, it directed us right to the lodge anyway which was great. The lodge/hot tub area is also very private which is nice and there are also lovely views with a very scenic surrounding area. We visited Ulverston which is a short car journey away and lots of parking. Lots of nice places to eat, drink and shop and we even caught the light switch on which was lovely! The only thing I can say is you may need to pack some toilet roll as we were only left one roll and had to buy some, I'm not sure if this was an accident or not! However, that is the only (tiny) negative and all in all the lodge is fabulous and I would definitely return and recommend.
"Fantastic stay, wish we had longer."
So cosy and the hot tub was a lovely addition. Will definitely come back perhaps to a larger cabin as we were on our mini moon. But Ash lodge was just perfect couldn’t fault it.
Thank you for your feed back... glad you had a lovely stay Property Owner
"We stayed here at Ash Lodge for two nights."
When we arrived we were greeted with a warm lit cabin and a bottle of wine which was a lovely touch. The cabin is lovely and cosy, it has all the things you could need for a break away. The views from the cabin are incredible and your only a short walk from even further breathtaking views. I’d defiantly stay here again and loved every second of our break so thank you very much Ash Lodge.

"Ash Lodge was absolutely wonderful."
We had a great stay. Best hot tub we've ever had in a holiday let, and we've stayed in a fair few - I like that both users were in a reclined position. We were however bitterly disappointed that we couldn't get in it until 9pm due to waiting for it to heat up. The bed was so comfortable and the bedding was lovely and soft. Only thing I needed and didn't have was a sharp knife, and a couple of hooks for towels/dressing gowns in the bathroom/by the hot tub.
Glad you had a nice stay; the Hot Tub sometimes is not ready due to cleansing and changing the water with such a short window to do this in. Thanks for the surjections we will sort these. Property Owner
"Absolutely lovely holiday lodge in a gorgeous location, really made our stay so enjoyable and we intend to return at some point!"
Makes a perfect lodge for a romantic getaway. The complimentary wine was also such a lovely touch, thank you so much
Thank you for your feed back... glad you had a lovely stay Property Owner
"Had a fabulous 4 nights at ash lodge."
Accommodation is beautiful and really cozy. The listing is slightly outdated as the TV in the bedroom no longer exists but wasn’t an issue for us at all. Hot tub got a bit cloudy for our last evening so water maybe needs to be changed earlier. Hot tub was a fab treat though, very impressed and Noel the site manager was on hand to help with any issues we had. Will definitely be back again! We almost weren’t able to leave after the cows blocked the road for our way out but it was okay because we didn’t want to leave either!
"A beautiful, well equipped lodge."
Easily found, peaceful and secluded. Easy access to rest of the Lakes with Ulveston a reasonable walk or short drive away. I will certainly book again.
"Perfect get away, romantic amd very cosy."
Loved the personal touch, hot tub was great especially after lots of walking. Highly recommend and we will be back.
"Absolutely fantastic week away - will definitely stay again!"
"Absolutely amazing time away, beautiful cottage, amazing views and really clean comfortable place to spend the weekend"
"The most beautiful cabin, with the most incredible news and such a friendly and attentive host."
We could not of asked for a better place to enjoy our holiday together. A nice special touch with the wine, that was much needed! The lodge was lovely and clean and the hot tub was such a bonus! Once again, thank you for an excellent holiday!

The hot tub is a great addition and the lodge itself is full equipped with everything you need. I would recommend anyone wanting a relaxing break away to stay here, Ulverston town is a 10 min drive and local taxi drivers will pick you up and bring back at night. We are already planning a return trip .
"Absolutely fantastic had an amazing time, so romantic can’t wait to do it again it was magical"
"The lodge was perfect and had everything you needed."
Was lovely to get in and have tea and milk there waiting we'd had a long drive so really appreciated that extra touch. The laminated guide on how to use everything and recommendations for eating out was also very helpful. The lodge was like a home from home.
"Had a wonderful stay in Such a beautiful place!"
Couldnt fault it at all
"It was a beautiful place."
The lodge was extremely clean and tastefully decorated. It was lovely to go into the hot tub every evening. The lodge had everything we needed and it really felt like ‘home’ after a long day exploring the stunning Cumbrian countryside. We cannot fault this place at all and would highly recommend it to all couples looking for a romantic break in Cumbria.

"Had a lovely 3 night stay at Ash Lodge."
We needed to arrive late on our day of arrival and the owners were very accommodating to this. The lodge was very well equipped with everything you could need, The owners even provided milk and a bottle of wine for whatever your welcome drink may be!! Very cosy and comfortable lodge that provides a great base for going out and exploring the local beauty spots. The hot tub is a lovely bonus to relax those weary limbs after a hard days walking. Would definitely stop again in the future and recommend to others.
"Really enjoyed our break especially with the hot tub , the lodge itself is very well appointed and the owners were very helpful when contacted regarding some minor problems."
"We had a fantastic time at Ash Lodge!"
Lovely cabin with everything we needed. Beautiful surroundings and very secluded. Despite the “Beast from the East” we loved our stay, very clean and cosy! Would definitely recommend and will be back... maybe in summer next time! Thanks again Steve!
"Our break at Ash Lodge was lovely."
The lodge is the perfect size for a couple whilst being cozy and comfortable with everything you need. It’s also clean and tidy. The furnishings are lovely and the bed is very comfy. It’s decorated beautifully too - very in keeping with the surroundings and adds to the calmness and serenity of your break. The hot tub is a nice size and allows you to stretch your legs out much like a bath which is unlike many tubs I’ve been in! To top it all off there is a lovely view from the cabin over the fields. Whilst we were there it was near Christmas and it was crisp, clear and chilly - very festive! We would definitely recommend and return here!
"Ash lodge is a beautiful little place."
