    However there were some things that really let it down: 1: On arrival there was a full dog pop bag hanging on the accommodation railing just near where you park the car. Not a good first impression 2:The bottom step of the 3 steps which leads to the main door was broken and wobbly. Not ideal when you have small children 3: The dishwasher was broken (the soap dispenser doesn’t open during the wash cycle) which meant we have to hand wash all pots for the entire week. This was inconvenient due to the size of the sink and draining board. 4: All pots, cups, glasses and plates had to be washed before using them for the first time as they weren’t clean when we arrived. 5: The kitchen sink tap doesn’t switch off properly meaning it was dripping for the entire holiday. All of the above points relate to the maintenance and cleanliness of the accommodation. These can easily be fixed but on this occasion really let you down. I would be interested in your feedback on the above? The leisure villages itself, swimming pool and location were all very good.

About the location


Carnforth 2 miles; Kendal 15 miles; Windermere 20 miles.

Set on a 43 acre site, the South Lakeland Leisure Village is situated just a couple of miles from Carnforth on the border of the Southern Lake District and the Yorkshire Dales. This beautiful area combines superb countryside and a coast with a rich and fascinating history dating back to the Domesday Book. The ‘village’, which has been given 5 stars by Visit Britain and has been accredited with David Bellamy Gold conservation awards provide top quality accommodation in the form of Scandinavian log cabins built around a large lake in the centre. The main club, a former 17th century farmhouse, is home to the on-site bar and restaurant, The Water’s Edge, and the village provides top quality leisure facilities with an indoor swimming pool, gym, steam room and beauty therapy suite to name but a few. An excellent location, within easy driving distance of pretty villages, coastal resorts and the national parks of the Lakes and the Dales.
