  • "The only problem we had was that your map shows Mallard Lodge as being on the west side of the A6 , and not actually in the South Lakeland Park, which is where it is."

    The accommodation itself was fine.

  • "Booked this lodge hoping for a nice quite setting."

    Better than we were hoping for, truely tranquil location and the beautiful lodge was the icing on the cake. Pat the owner made sure we had everything in place for our stay and could not be more helpful.

  • "The lodge was very well presented and had everything that you could possibly need and more to have a comfortable stay."

    Pat greeted us on arrival and made us very welcome and showed us around. Wifi was excellent. Would highly recommend to anyone wanting to explore the area. The only thing we didn’t like was the horrible rainy weather!

  • "This property lived up to its description in the advert."

    Everything we needed to ensure we were comfortable during a week of stormy wet weather was available. As it was Christmas week the owner, Pat, had ensured there was a fully decorated Christmas Tree to greet our arrival along with milk, a bottle of water and a bottle of Prosecco which after a congested drive up the M6 motorway were most welcome. We hope to return again in the future.

  • "This property could not be faulted."

    it is a lovely property and had everything required for our stay. the owner Pat went out of her way to help and get the property ready as it was a very late booking, 1pm on the Saturday, as we had an issue with our chosen property as the boiler was broken. It was a very nice touch by Pat that she likes to meet the people who are using her accommodation and show them around the property. It is 1st class accommodation and probably the best we have every stopped in.

  • "Pat is a very good host and arrival all went smoothly."

    The accomodation is to a very high standard and well maintained. The Lodge is spacious and contained all we needed and we are happy to highly reccomend this. The noise from workmen building decks etc on adjacent properties was beyond the owners control and we were surprised that the Site Management allows this work this time of year when people want a quiet time. Weekenders are ok ,We went out each week day.
