  • "As always, our stay at Limefitt was wonderful."

    The sad thing about it is the price increases for the 2022 holidays mean that we will be unlikely to use Lake District Holidays again .

    Thank you for the review, Mr Speight. Whilst delighted to hear you enjoyed your stay, we note your further comments and we can tell you that 2022 prices have not yet been set. The prices are being reviewed and you should see changes in the coming weeks. Jinnyspinner is a cosy three bedroom holiday lodge, the perfect place to relax and unwind. Property Owner

  • "Had another lovely break at Limedfitt park even though a few issues with Jinny Spinner."

    We're stayed in this lodge a number of times over the last few years and always enjoyed our stays, but we have noticed that the last two times we have been disappointed with certain things i.e bed linen in double room past its best, one of the pillowcases badly ripped, also no pillows protectors, mattress protector does not fit the bed and also ripped. In the kitchen the tea towel provided was badly stained on arrival. The reason why we still book for this lodge as we have for September 2019 is largely down to the location otherwise we would probably try one of the other lodges in the park.

  • "Third time back to jinnyspinner and we love it ."

    On arrival the lodge was immaculate and heating and lamps were on giving a lovley cosy vibe . Weather was a bit mixed but we still sat outside on the wonderful balcony admiring the views and listening to the bubbling brook beneath us . The dogs love the balcony and the glass panels , enabling them to sit and watch the river flow . We saw a water weasel one morning which was lovley. Jinny could do with a new hoover and a long handled brush and pan for the kitchen so guests can keep her nice and clean . The decking gets very skippy when wet so maybe a sign on the gate would be beneficial. The location of the lodge is fantastic. The camp is only a few mins drive to Windermere which is where the shops are. Jinnyspinner is like an old friend to us and we hope to return again soon . Xx What did you enjoy most about your stay? Sitting outside enjoying the sound of the river . What one experience (e.g attraction, walk, day out) would you recommend for our future guests? Beatrice potter hill top cottage

  • "Quite disappointed , on arrival we received a telephone call to say that the cleaner was running late and that the lodge would not be ready for another half hour."

    At the moment of receiving the call we had just arrived on site for our 6th visit. We brought along our 2 Cocker Spaniels, who realising where they were, got very excited and had to be taken out of the car and walked around for the half hour. The cleaner did apologise, and we realise that it wasn't her fault, maybe her total workload is too much for the time allocated?? When we accessed the lodge everywhere was clean, and my wife decided to make a brew. When she looked in the cupboard there was only one cup! On searching round we found the rest, with various other crockery/cutlery items still in the dishwasher!! Unfortunately one cup had been put in the wrong way round and was full of water, when the cup was moved all the water spilled on the floor which of course had to be cleaned up!! Overall the lodge was what we expected and up to its usual standard, and we totally enjoyed our stay. Unfortunately there was also an issue with the sewerage system to the whole site, and a large pumping machine and tractor had to use the parking area for the lodge. The operatives were there all day whilst we were out and still there on our return! They were very courteous and full of apologies and left site around 7.30pm. Maybe we were just a bit unlucky on this visit, but overall enjoyable as usual. What did you enjoy most about your stay?

  • "We had an amazing time at Jinnyspinner."

    We have now stayed in a few different lodges managed by lake district lodge holidays and haven't been disappointed yet. On arrival the lodge was lovely and clean. The wooden interior would make it perfect for a Christmas stay. The outdoor area is beautiful and in the Summer it would be perfect for sitting outside with a glass of fizz. It is right by the beck - the water was so clear you could see the massive fish swimming below and we even saw deer in the field opposite. Our dog, Barney, had a fantastic time and enjoyed a run around the dog field on the park. We would definitely recommend booking with Lake District Lodge Holidays and would 100% stay at Jinnyspinner again. Thank you for a super holiday. Next time I think we'll look at booking for a week instead of only a few days. What did you enjoy most about your stay? Family time, peace and tranquillity. What one experience (e.g attraction, walk, day out) would you recommend for our future guests? Wandering around the park to see all the wildlife.

    Mrs Emma McdonnellNov 2017

  • "The lodge was still being cleaned when we arrived right on 3 o'clock but we only had to wait 5 minutes."

    The previous occupants had reported that there was a problem with the top two steps on the access stair and as we were unpacking one of the site staff arrived and replaced the faulty steps within 20 minutes, we had not even noticed that there was a problem. The lodge was clean, warm and had everything we could have wanted to enjoy our stay. We have stayed before on Limefitt but this is the first time in this particular Lodge and would not hesitate to book it again. Dog friendly pub on site is excellent and the staff are fantastic with both us and our dog, we were really made to feel at home there. The only negative we have about the park is the dog park which is always wet and not very appealing to take your dog to. What did you enjoy most about your stay? The walking and the relaxing location What one experience (e.g attraction, walk, day out) would you recommend for our future guests? Walks

    Mr Tony CallaghanNov 2017

  • "Another visit to JinnySpinner, just as cosy,lodge might not be as modern as others we have stayed in, but it's in a superb position by the river, probably the best in the park."

    Lodge would still benefit from having a washing machine. Limefitt is a lovely park, but it would be greatly improved by replacing The Haybarn with a much better pub.

    Rooms were clean and comfortable, a range of DVDs, books and toys were available - which was a nice touch - and I appreciated the domestic essentials that were supplied (soap, loo roll, dishwasher tablets etc) My only criticism was that at What did you enjoy most about your stay?

    Mrs Colleen JohnstoneAug 2016

  • "Enjoyed our Christmas in your warm and cosy lodge in spite of the sometimes wild weather outside."

    We were very lucky not to be affected by the dreadful floods in other areas not that far away. We managed a walk to Ambleside and back on Christmas eve without getting wet! Lodge very well equipped, clean and comfortable. The Christmas lights and tree were an added bonus. We must have had the best position on Limefitt next to the beck. Overall a very enjoyable stay, hope to be back.

    It is in a quiet location on the park, so ideal for just relaxing.

What did you enjoy most about your stay? The location on the park meant that it is very quiet and ideal for just relaxing and chilling out.

    Mrs Patrycja MorawskaSep 2015

  • "This was our 3rd visit to Jinnyspinner as we love the area so much."

    The cabin is comfortable and homely and in an amazing spot in the park, beautifully quiet apart from the sound of the river, which we love! Wake up to a heron fishing in the river, spend the day walking or catching fish in your net down at the river pool (where my children played for hours), watch the bats at dusk and if you're lucky - as we were this time - watch a badger from the cabin windows! The staff on the park are extremely friendly and helpful and the cabin is well-appointed and practical with plenty of hot water to ease aching muscles. What did you enjoy most about your stay? Our challenge this time was Scafell Pike (with 8 and 11 year olds) so we were pretty chuffed with that! What one experience (e.g attraction, walk, day out) would you recommend for our future guests? One? Townend (NT) is fantastic, Helm Crag is a perfect 'first mountain' for younger ones!

    Had nice weather and had a nice time walking with the dog. It was quiet at night with no distractions. The lodge was warm and very clean. All on the complex were friendly, even other guests.

  • "This was our 2nd visit to Jinnyspinner, which is in a beautiful location."

    Sadly the lodge and some of the kitchen utensil were not as clean as they could have been, some of the windows had cobwebs! Maybe the cleaners have changed? Which is a pity as the lodge at our last visit was spotless. Other than that we had an enjoyable break. What did you enjoy most about your stay?

    Mr Graham DarwenJun 2015

  • "Limefitt Park is a lovely park where families can book separate lodges but still spend time together."

    We booked the Jennyspinner Lodge (one of the older lodges) and right next to the river. It was cosy which was just as well as it rained for the entire duration of our weekend stay. The beds were very comfortable and its location next to the river and far from the entrance and bar meant that it was very quiet. We used the car to get out and about except on the Sunday evening when we walked to the Mortal Man for a huge and delicious dinner. We used the shop and found it stocked most of what we needed. All in all a very easy and relaxing weekend. What did you enjoy most about your stay? Opportunity to be located close to other family What one experience (e.g attraction, walk, day out) would you recommend for our future guests? Low Wood Hotel (great cafe) and marina (waterskiing)

    Mrs Hilda LloydMay 2015

  • "Our first impressions were great."

    Position of lodge on site is excellent: beside the beck and in a corner. Lovely daffodils and trees. The inside of the lodge appeared clean and modern. Howevere we discovered mouse droppings behind the microwave, then on the floor in several places. We appreciate that we are in the countyside but the lodge was supposed to be inspected before we arrived. When checking for more droppings, we found that underneath the bunk beds was filthy. Later we found that the 2 single beds looked like they had been slept in i.e. hairs and fluff. When we called the helpline, a person arrived very quickly and cleaned the lodge thoroughly. He was polite and friendly. Later that day, we discovered that if we had the dishwasher on, the electricity kept going off. We eventually found the outside box and used a knife to get into it as there was no screwdriver provided! We did not want to complain anymore so decided not to use the dishwasher any more. This was not a hardship but had been one of th factors when booking the lodge. Overall we had a fantastic stay and these were minor niggles that were sorted out quickly. What did you enjoy most about your stay? Spending time with family in beautiful surroundings. What one experience (e.g attraction, walk, day out) would you recommend for our future guests? Outside hot tub at Low Wood Hotel! Great view of lake.

    Mrs Jacqui CairnsApr 2015

  • "Beautiful and very relaxing place to stay."

    Mr Karl GoochJan 2015

  • "My partner, myself and our dog stayed here for 2 nights."

    A short break away without our 7 year old son. Wish he had been with us though, as he would of loved it. The lodge had the best location in the park, situated next to the beck. The lodge was very clean and warm. It was very comfortable and felt some homely. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and did not want to leave. We definitely will return. What did you enjoy most about your stay? Spending the days out walking and returning to our lovely accommodation. What one experience (e.g attraction, walk, day out) would you recommend for our future guests? Bowness in Windermere.

  • "Had a wonderful weekend."

    All 6 of us enjoyed it. I do want to re book just haven't got around to it and will hopefully in the next 2 weeks. Great location next to the river. Central heating was great. Only down side for us is that we all smoke. Smoking on the viranda outside we got soaked as there was no cover in this cabin, and it rained a lot. A nice heated area would make us come back every week and would make a difference, or definitely some shelter. Thanks for making the cabin nice and clean and warm.

    Mr Stuart BurtonSep 2014

  • "This is a beautiful Lodge in a beautiful setting."

    The balcony overlooking the beck was exceptional, and there was lots of wildlife visitors. Just a couple of minor points, the pillows were rather hard and uncomfortable, and a BT Hub with a half decent broadband connection wouldn't go amiss. What did you enjoy most about your stay?

    Sep 2014

    The lodge was really well equipped, beds super comfortable, and overall quite spacious. The hay barn was pretty good on site for food, only slight negatives were that the barbeque was "tired" so we decided not to use it, and there were dark presumably pet hairs in the carpet in the lounge, only Made visible when walked on...it had not been properly hoovered. What did you enjoy most about your stay? Great location of the lodge, and the peace and quiet. What one experience (e.g attraction, walk, day out) would you recommend for our future guests?
