  • "We had a wonderful stay at Millwood Lodge for my 60th Birthday."

    We were welcomed by the owner on arrival, and they had baked a very large Victoria Sponge cake. Sadly, I couldn't eat it as I'm lactose intolerant, and the majority of my family are coealics. However, the members of the family who could eat said it was really yummy

  • "We had the most perfect stay at Millwood Lodge."

    Everything was perfect. The owner was lovely to meet and popped in shortly after we arrived to make sure everything was OK. The whole place was immaculate, large living room and kitchen plus all the bedrooms were perfect each with en-suit. We would like to thank David and Caroline for providing us the best stay and we would definitely book this cottage again.

  • "Lovely cottage, big bedrooms and comfy beds."

    Lounge nice layout, the sofas although they looked nice were not terribly comfortable. Fabulous conservatory, a great place to dine. Couple of small things - a bit more cutlery/utensils and spare toilet rolls in each of the well appointed bathrooms. TV in every room was good as some of us wanted to watch ‘Strictly’ and some of us didn’t. Overall excellent cottage and would thoroughly recommend. Hosts were there on arrival but otherwise left us alone. Lovely cake left for us as well which was a nice surprise.

  • "Millwood Lodge is absolutely beautiful."

    We booked a stay to celebrate my 'special' birthday and to say that the accommodation made the celebration more special is no understatement. The house is so comfortable and cosy whilst there is plenty room for everyone. So much effort has gone in to every detail throughout the house and every bedroom felt like the master suite. Sitting round that fantastic table in the evening, in the company of my best friends will stay with me forever. I would (and have) recommended Millwood Lodge to lots of people already and I only hope I get the chance to return soon (and not have to wait for 10 more years until my next milestone!!)

    Hello. I'm sorry you did not have ample kitchen equipment, I did speak to most members of your party on many occasions during your stay and asked if you had everything you needed and if you required anything at all to just ask us. We will address this problem. Regards David and Caroline Property Owner

    All the bedrooms rooms having an ensuite was a bonus. Very well stocked kitchen and delicious cakes, which was a pleasant surprise on our arrival. One of our dogs caused damage to a carpet one night which was mortifying! David was very reassuring and understanding. We would have no hesitation about recommending the house to others.

  • "I loved the stay loved the house It did need a good clean when we were there alot of cobwebs and spiders and hairs but overall lovely stay Didn't appreciate the issue over charging cars especially when we brought the slow charger which barely used electric."

    We traveled over 91 miles to the lodge and now in 2023 it is something the owner will get more of. Most cars are electric or will soon be elctric. The fact that we paid close to 2k for the weekend just seemed ridiculous that there was an issue with owner over this. Funny how after the owner noticed this the plug socket outside stopped working

    Thank you for your feedback. We are very sorry we did not come up to your expectations, we do all the cleaning and linen changing ourselves so we give special attention to the points mentioned With the issue of charging an electric vehicle we do not offer this facility for travelling expenses, we do not supply Diesel or Petrol either for your other vehicles, it does state in the terms and conditions about charging electric vehicles. You did have our contact number so could have contacted us and we could come to an arrangement to accommodate you. With regard to the socket stopping working "this did not happen", the socket is on a ring circuit so you would have lost power throughout the property, (checked by an electrician). Once again we thank you for the feedback. Property Owner

    We booked for a long weekend for a family get together. It was good to have bedrooms downstairs as we had a couple of people in the party that couldn’t manage stairs. The bedrooms were comfortable and beautifully decorated. The house was warm and cosy. The kitchen was lovely with everything you needed. The cake that was left for us all was delicious and thanks again for leaving it for us. So good we have booked again for next year for our annual family get together.

    This lodge was everything I expected and so much more. Spent 2 nights with 11 friends for my partners 30th and we were all so chuffed with our stay. The cleanliness was top level, all of the home decor was just absolutely adorable, the beds were SO comfortable - haven’t slept so well in years! Everything was just immaculate and the homemade chocolate cake was absolutely divine and such a lovely touch!! Cannot rave about it all enough. Will definitely be returning, maybe even making it an annual trip as it was just such a nice getaway!

  • "We booked Millwood Lodge on the understanding that there was a ground floor bedroom for one of our family members."

    When we arrived that was not the case. There was one step down to one of the rooms plus a step down into the en-suite. The other two downstairs bedrooms were up three steps. The rooms were damp and lacked ventilation so condensation was a huge issue, our clothes were damp when they came out of the wardrobes if the room had a wardrobe or cupboard. Some had just hooks on the wall. Kitchen was missing some utensils and the cafeteria was broken. The oven temperature gauge wasn’t correct so cooking times took longer. There was nowhere for muddy boots and wet coats to hang to dry after our walks. The lounge was not big enough for all of us to sit comfortably together. We had a nice stay but would not go back.

    Hello Karen, we are so very sorry that you had an unpleasant experience at the property. We spoke to you on the second day of your booking and on other occasions asking if all was well and to contact us if there were any problems. The only telephone contact from you was on the Saturday when there was a blocked gutter which we rectified immediately. We have had people calling us prior to their stay asking about access when they have someone with mobility problems, at which point we mention the two steps into the property, two steps up to the two rooms on the right and the one step down to the other bedroom on that floor. There are no rooms with three steps leading up to them. We will work with Sykes to ensure that the steps are noted in the description as transparently as possible. We have not had any damp issues, all rooms have opening windows for ventilation, and we encourage all guests to air the rooms where possible. With regard to the oven temperature gauge, we will install a thermometer in it to ensure it always works at the correct temperature. If you had mentioned the utensils and cafetiere we would have replaced them immediately. We will of course look into the point you have raised relating to the muddy boots and wet coat storage. Had you informed us of any issues you were experiencing, we would have done our very best to help you, as quickly as possible. Kind regards, David & Caroline Property Owner

    We all got our own rooms with bathrooms and the dining area in the conservatory was superb for us all to eat around and play games. The kitchen facilities were also good, plenty of space to prepare meals for a large group. The property is quite 'out of the way' and driving was the only option to go for walks or explore the Lakes, there was a walk close by round the woods that was good for the dog but we knew that before booking.

    All rooms were furnished to high standard and beds so comfy. We will definitely stay again, the only downside, and no way is it a complaint, was the large step down into the kitchen. Our 17 month old grandson fell a couple of times but he soon learnt to navigate it. :) We especially liked the enclosed garden, It was the hottest week of the summer but with a large corner outdoor sofa with jumbo sized umbrella we spent most of our stay playing outside with our grandchildren.

    The bedrooms are lovely and clean with their own bathrooms. The lounge was comfortable but my 80 year old mum would have preferred a more supportive furniture for her back. The different levels on the ground floor are done very well, but might be difficult for someone with mobility issues. I loved all the artwork on the walls, as it gives the place a homely feeling. The hosts went above and beyond, with an amazing cake on arrival and a fan left for us during the week as the weather was hot. The enclosed garden was beautiful to sit in and great for our dog. The patio furniture was in constant use and very much appreciated, as was the barbecue. We all had a fabulous time. Thank you!

    All the bedrooms and en-suites were equally nice, so no-one felt short-changed. The sitting room and dining conservatory were generous in size, comfy and nicely quirky, providing a real hub to the house. The kitchen was well stocked, but could have benefitted from a few basics like salt & pepper & a couple of dishwasher tablets to start you off. However, the welcome cake was a wonderful treat. We were blessed with good weather and so the garden and outdoor seating area were an added bonus. The surrounding area has much to offer with woodland walks, long empty beaches and plenty of historic sites. We’ll definitely hope to return.

The property

Tucked away in a peaceful setting on the outskirts of the vibrant seaside town of Barrow-in-Furness, in the sought-after county of Cumbria, rests this remarkable six-bedroom former B&B, Millwood Lodge.

A Grade II listed building boasting an effortless blend of contemporary and traditional décor, Millwood Lodge makes for an idyllic base for a group celebration to this picturesque region.

Park up on the spacious driveway before unloading your belongings and making your way through the well-kept garden and stepping inside your new home-from-home to begin your staycation.

Kick off your shoes as you step over the threshold and enter into the dining room, traditionally decorated with exposed stonework and flooded with light welcomed in through the wall of windows, providing a lovely spot to gather together with your loved ones with a seat at the grand dining table to tuck-in to a tasty meal.

Continuing through to the open-plan kitchen/diner, the designated chef will be delighted by the range of amenities provided, including an electric oven and ceramic hob for preparing home-cooked meals, as well as a handy dishwasher to assist with the cleaning up.

Escape the excitement and share a bottle of wine with your significant other at the charming window seat, adorned with shabby chic throw cushions for a truly homely ambiance, or settle down for the evening with a sumptuous spot in front of the warming woodburning stove in the snug sitting room.

Take the celebrations outdoors with a seat amongst the mature greenery of the enclosed garden, where you can toast a glass of fizz to an unforgettable holiday as the little ones burn off some steam with a ball game on the large lawn.

As the evening draws to a close, head back indoors where there are three well-presented bedrooms nestled on the ground-floor, with your choice between two king-size rooms and a double, each benefiting from access to its own en-suite and a television so you can catch up on your favourite show from the comfort of your covers.

Heading upstairs to the first floor you'll find three additional bedrooms, a super-king-size with an elegant free-standing bath and dressing area, perfect for getting ready in style, alongside another super-king-size and a.

Get better acquainted with your surroundings and take the short stroll from your doorstep into the heart of the nearby town of Dalton-in-Furness, where you'll find a selection of well-stocked convenience stores alongside a handful of delicious eateries, ideal for those days where you want a break from the kitchen.

Pack your bucket and spade and head to Roanhead Beach, where you can paddle the shores backed by the towering sand dunes, or if you'd prefer to stay on land, spend a fun-filled day out meeting the animals at the South Lakes Safari Zoo.

Jump in the car and journey to the Victorian town of Barrow-in-Furness, home to the 12th century ruins of Furness Abbey, here you can treat yourself to a spot of retail therapy at The Mall, immerse yourself in the fascinating industrial heritage at The Dock Museum, or test your swing with a game at Furness Golf Club, the third oldest links golf club in England.

Whilst you're in the area, be sure to embark on a two-footed adventure throughout the picturesque landscape of the Lake District National Park, where you can explore rugged fells, open water and scenic moorland via a plethora of walking, cycling and hiking trails.
