  • "Good location."

    Difficult and awkward car parking - very cramped for 2 cars and stone bolders very unhelpful. Accommodation - cramped for 4 adults and 2 dogs! The bathroom is small and needs silicon sealing refreshed, The hob is gas. There is no dishwasher. Fine for a short stay.

    The boulders are to stop people destroying the grass,we will re-silicon at the end of the season. Property Owner

  • "Lovely cabin, amazing location."

    Not the cleanest on arrival and could do with a dish washer. When 6 people are on holiday it’s a bit rubbish to have to wash dishes all weekend - just a suggestion. Also we were given the incorrect barrier code which did not seem to please the security manager, needs updated.

    I’m surprised at your comments as the cleaner is usually excellent,perhaps book a lodge WITH a dishwasher next time,your the first to comment on this. I agree 6adults 1infant and two dogs is excessive for our lodge,perhaps book something larger next time ant pay more!! Property Owner

  • "The lodge was perfect, very clean and tidy and in a perfect location to visit all the sights within the Lake District."

    The beds were comfortable and lounge area was perfect for relaxing after a long day walking. The owners of the lodge have fitted it out with anything you may need for a self catering holiday, they have also gone to a lot of trouble to ensure your stay is stress and problem free with clear instructions left for using cooler and microwave. This was probably our best ever UK holiday and fell in love with the area. I am quite sure, we will be back. Thank you very much

  • "We had a great weekend."

    The lodge is spacious and clean. We didn't make buy the entertainment passes but they looked straight forward to buy at reception. We struggled with the code for the barrier and had to get a new one from reception. They said that they didn't recognise the code we had been given do maybe something to look at for the next guests. Easy walking distance to brochole and spent the day there with the kids. And we also enjoyed sometime down the marina paddle boarding on the lake. The park is lovely and quiet and the one site club in nice. We would come again thanks

  • "We visited the same lodge last year."

    This year it was evident that it needed a bit of maintenance and upgrading. The coffee table had been replaced by a more than cheap and flimsy plastic MDF one which stained within a minute of putting a glass of wine on it. The oven nob on the cooker did not work, and the dial shows the oven is on when it is off. - this is dangerous, if I had turned the nob to 0 'off' then it would have been pumping gas out. The carpet is now thread bare and fraying in different areas, and the kitchen worktop is taped up with cello tape. The lodge is comfortable and clean, and I appreciate being able to bring a dog, especially to the lake District with so many lovely walks, however I think I would book a different lodge in future as this one is now getting to the point it's not worth the money paid unless some cash is spent on it to improve these things.

    Hi. Sorry some things weren't quite right for you. We did leave a note saying that a new carpet was ordered. The small, coin-sized, bare patch was due to a dog clawing it. We had to replace a broken coffee table at short notice. The oven was just three weeks old when someone managed to break a knob. it was NOT unsafe - as an engineer confirmed. The worktop joint has had to be protected following a poor fitting (sadly out of warranty). Property Owner

    it was a little short of large. A receptacle was left on the deck full off cigarette ends and an empty packet. The oven was left with a greasy rack which still had a piece of congealed bacon on it. The grill did not work at all. The rest of our party couldn't make it due to self isolating which was just as well considering the bathroom dimensions. Apart from these few things the lodge was fine and quite comfortable.

  • "This was our second stay in this lodge which, while dated, is very suitable for a family to use as a base."

    We were enjoying our stay until Monday at 8am when builders arrived at the lodge next door to demolish their outside balcony and construct another. They had numerous vehicles, 5 or 6 workers and lots of equipment rendering using the outside area of our lodge unusable and the inside very noisy! This was unexpected and quite a big deal for us so we asked Sykes for help. They suggested we send photos (not easy to do with patchy wifi) which we did, only to have them refer us to the terms and conditions suggesting that this was to be expected on a functioning holiday park! We spent the rest of the holiday avoiding time spent in the lodge which means we spent much longer days out followed by early evenings in the club. A bit of customer empathy and consideration wouldn't have gone amiss. Perhaps identifying who the work was being done for and finding out when the work would be completed/expected working hours? Perhaps intervening and asking the company not to set up a saw right under our lodges bedroom window? This lack of care means we are highly unlikely to book through LDLH or Sykes again.

    Thank you for your feedback and it was a pleasure to welcome you back. We are sorry you were disturbed by the work being carried out on the neighbouring lodge. I'm afraid this is something outside of our control. We are not always made aware by the park management of works being carried out on the park and therefore can not always make our guests aware. We also do not have any control over where the workers park their vans or the hours they work. We take your comments and onboard and will look at how we deal with matters similar to this in the future. It would be a pleasure to welcome you back to see we take all feedback very seriously.

    Enjoyed the whistling kettle which took about 5 mins to boil which was fine. Wi-Fi was intermittent but was free. Facilities were ok - difficult with Covid guidelines in place. It was good to have a shower bath. Place was clean and no sign of wasps. Beds and settees were comfortable and it was nice to eat outside. Space for two cars was a little tight but was ok although we do have smaller cars. Weather was good. Also enjoyed the 10 lake mountain goat coach tour.

    The lodge had a prominent wasps nest in the roof, we were unable to sit outside the front as they accessed the nest there, and also unable to sit at the side as they excited the nest there. Some wasps had managed to get inside the lodge, which wasn’t good as we have a young child. I called the number provided and as it was the weekend they had to wait until Monday to call someone. Inside the loads wasn’t amazingly clean, we cleaned parts ourselves, but it wasn’t too bad.

    We are sorry to hear there was a wasps nest at the lodge. We can tell you that a small nest was found above the front door and has been treated. We do find at this time of year the park attracts quite a number of wasps nests, although as soon as we are aware we will do all we can to remove them as quickly as possible. Thank you for letting us know and please accept our apologies for any inconvenience caused. We have passed on your cleaning comments to the independent cleaning company. It is unusual for this lodge and we can only say we are sorry. We do hope that you otherwise enjoyed your stay at Pinehaven Lodge and will consider returning for another very soon. Property Owner

  • "Lovely accommodation."

    Facilities were good and the beds were comfortable. We took our own electric kettle with us as we had read about the slowness of the gas hob kettle. The oven and grill are a bit dated but they do work if you hold the buttons down. Television lacked many channels and was not HD, but we managed to watch the football fine. Can be a little noisy location backing onto the road to the park complex and the main road to the barrier. Overall we enjoyed our stay immensely and would have liked to have stayed longer. The only downside was the very poor Wi-fi. I know the description says its only suitable for page browsing/email but its not even fit for that. Most of the time we had no signal. The lodge could do with its own private hub as Grasmere 2 has. Owners need to look at this as in this day and age wi-fi is essential for booking activities and checking directions and weather.

    Thank you for your review of Pinehaven Lodge and we will pass your comments across to the lodge owner. The WIFI is a complimentary service provided by the holiday park (Parkdean Resorts) which is only suitable for page browsing and sending emails. Quality and reliability of connection will vary based on the number of people using it, prevailing weather conditions and therefore may be limited or slower than you are used to. We have brought the issue of the reliability of this service to the attention of the Park Management who are looking into this further. Property Owner

  • "Had a great stay at this place."

    It is a little dated but it was better than we’d anticipated and would stay again without hesitation. There is a wasps nests at either side of the lodge and had to remove a couple that had come inside. Having read reviews about how slow the kettle was we found it boiled far quicker on the front right hob. The beds were very comfortable. The only issue we had on an evening was when people were leaving the pub at closing and were fairly noisy but that quickly past. Shower was good and the water pressure was perfect. But was a little too powerful in the kitchen sink which resulted us getting a little wet at times. The location is fantastic with a short walk down to the lake and short drives to bowness, rydal water and Grasemere. The visitor centre down the road was also really good particularly if you have kids and a dog.

    The lodge itself is a little dated, but subsequently priced accordingly. It is clean, well equipped and it suited our requirements for the 2 of us and our small dog. The only slight criticism was there wasn't an electric kettle, we thought it a little strange to use a stove kettle, which took a while to boil. The double bed was very comfortable, but we didn't have any need to use any of the other beds, so unable to comment. One thing to note is that the water sometimes became unbearably hot from the shower (to the point of scolding) and the thermostat didn't appear to make any difference. We would however recommend the lodge to anybody looking for a home from home environment it a lovely setting. What did you enjoy most about your stay?

  • "Had a lovely short break for my birthday."

    Lodge was clean and tidy, i'd say its probably better for 4 adults and 2 children as the smallest bedroom had 2 single beds very close together and a not alot of room to walk round and get ready. No dressing table in this room it wouldn't fit. The other 2 bedrooms were lovely 1 had a double bed, dressing table with mirror and wardrobes with plenty of space. The other was 2 singles but with plenty of space. Bathroom was clean and the shower was powerful. Everything you'd need in the kitchen and the living space was nice but would just point out the cushions on the settee could do with a little wash as they really did smell of dogs. If people read the requests dogs shouldn't have been allowed on the furniture so this something that could easily be rectified. All in all we had a lovely time and would i go again.. yes. Only real downside was a wasps nest on our balcony in front of the front door, we did report it twice and was promised it would be removed both times although it was still there when we left and my husband has a phobia of wasps which he did point out. Close proximity to Windermere, Ambleside & Bowness with some lovely pubs along the way. Club house on site did let dogs in but they only have 5 tables which meant it was a struggle for some people when it rained. Maybe an outdoor area with a cover would be good for dog owners although this doesn't reflect on the property. What did you enjoy most about your stay?

The parking might fit two small cars, just, but if the next door lodge have a car on site you can't get more than one in and out. What did you enjoy most about your stay? Being so close to Windamere What one experience (e.g attraction, walk, day out) would you recommend for our future guests? Brockleholme visitors center just 600 yards up the road loads to do for kids.

    Mrs Gillian McardleJul 2018

  • "Stayed in Pinehaven Lodge end June 2018 with my husband and our 19 yr old son along with my 87 yr old mother."

    Clean, quite spacious lodge in good location for park facilities. Son was in smaller of the two twin rooms to allow his grandmother to have the largest , he did manage ok but feel two older children/teenagers may struggle in this room due to reduced space particularly between the small beds. Clean tidy, enclosed veranda area with tables which we did make use of in the lovely weather. One small negative, there was no remote for the television and the reception was not good at times, there was a note stating remote would arrive " imminently " but was not dated and no remote arrived during our stay. However this did not retract from a lovely comfortable stay and would recommend Pinehaven Lodge particularly for a family with smaller children. What did you enjoy most about your stay?

    Miss Lynne BennionJul 2017

  • "Our stay was in June 17 and we were pleasantly surprised by the accommodation."

    We are used to packing the car with items we may possibly need on holiday and found that they were all there already. In addition there were a few surprises like a selection of films on dvd, books and leaflets. It is handy for Ambleside and a stroll through the site takes you to the lake side.

    I wouldnt want to stay here in high season as the lodges are pretty close together, but Pinehaven is in a cul de sac with the lodges being all at different angles so you dont feel hemmed in. Nice cosy lodge, located close to the site facilities which we didnt use, we came here as we have dogs , there is a nice short circular walk around the park which takes you down to the lake and back through the woods. What did you enjoy most about your stay? being anywhere in the lakes is most enjoyable!! What one experience (e.g attraction, walk, day out) would you recommend for our future guests?

    Mrs Sara Fernandez CanoOct 2015

  • "Cabin was a good size and in good condition."

    It was a little overlooked by other cabins nearby but in a good spot if you want to use the club house/ leisure facilities. The side door did not open and the main patio doors at the front were a bit problematic in that one morning we were not able to open them from the inside. On returning to the cabin it took a few attempts to open with the key- not sure if this was due to warm days and cold evenings causing the doors to expand etc? It seemed to have resolved itself the following day. The cabin overall was well appointed and comfortable so for the money we would book again. What did you enjoy most about your stay? proximity to attractions What one experience (e.g attraction, walk, day out) would you recommend for our future guests? close to windermere, Ambleside, grasmere etc. If you want to take the bus there is a stop just outside the site on the main road. pub lunch with a view, go to the mortal man at Troutbeck.

Only 1 hour in the morning and 4 in the afternoon. Whitecross bay is in an excellent position and we all hope to return. What did you enjoy most about your stay? The easy going atmosphere. What one experience (e.g attraction, walk, day out) would you recommend for our future guests? Bowness is still our favourite place.

    Mrs Jean WilliamsSep 2015

  • "The cabin was very nice, very clean."

    everything worked as it should. and the location was very nice. the only slight negative for me was my cabin was very close to reception which meant when there was a disco or singer, we got a lot of loud music, but it only went on til 11 pm so didnt stop me sleeping. but if you like going for a drink and enjoying the music then it would be spot on for you. and it was very child & dog friendly, a great stay for families. another slight negative was the on site shop only stocked the basics, but i was quite happy to drive the 12 miles to asda and get all my shopping. on the whole we had a lovely week and the weather was great. i would give this stay 9 / 10. What did you enjoy most about your stay? fish & chips & ice cream. What one experience (e.g attraction, walk, day out) would you recommend for our future guests? ambleside

    Mrs Helen LateoJun 2015

  • "Pinehaven is a spacious, well equipped and comfortable plastic lodge in a convenient location between Windermere and Ambleside."

    It is closely surrounded by very many similar cabins - thankfully not all occupied when we stayed. Common facilities on site are well maintained and comprehensive - although its lakeside location was made irrelevant by the lack of lake access which is dominated by commercial and private mooring jetties with no shore area suitable for children to play or for the launching of a small dinghy . The whole experience is similar to staying in a Travelodge hotel - ok, as long as you know what to expect. Suitable for families with young children who need constant entertainment. Not suitable for families with dogs or those wishing to experience the grandeur of the mountains and lakes. What did you enjoy most about your stay? The indoor swimming pool was excellent for our grandchildren. What one experience (e.g attraction, walk, day out) would you recommend for our future guests? Grandchildren enjoyed their visit to the Beatrix Potter exhibition.

    Very comfortable and spacious living area. A little dated, but this is not a criticism as it had a home from home feel about it, and had everything you could need for your stay.

    Miss Katy AllanSep 2014

  • "We enjoyed this comfortable clean lodge and thought it was good value for money, if a little dated."

    It was not a wooden lodge, so noise insulation was not great. However, since it is a quiet park anyway, this was not a problem. Pinehaven Lodge had everything we needed for a nice short break. If we returned, we would probably hire one of the wooden lodges, though closer to the lake.

    Mrs Sue NeildSep 2014

  • "The log cabin was in a nice quiet location next to all amenities."

    it was not very clean and tidy throughout the cabin there was a lot of dog hair on the mat as you walk in the doorway, I checked the bed sheets and pillows which also had dog hair on them. As far as the entertainment on site we were told there was a lot and it was free of charge. the swimming pool was the kids weren't old enough for sauna or gym and the daytime entertainment was chargeable which we were not told about and was very expensive. archery What did you enjoy most about your stay? the zoo What one experience (e.g attraction, walk, day out) would you recommend for our future guests? south lake zoo

  • "This is a great location with easy access to lots of beautiful places in the Southern Lakes."

    Pinehaven is very comfortable and has everything you could need. its a homely and relaxing environment.. We had some struggles with the boiler pilot light going out, our heating engineer member of the party suggests it might be something simple, a small part that needs to be changed. The television also had frequent periods of pixelating and blinking on and off, small movements of the set seemed to resolve the problem for a while but it does need looking at for the future. it speaks volumes of Pinehaven, to say that these two issues did not spoil the stay. I would recommend Pinehaven to anyone What did you enjoy most about your stay?

    The lodge itself is very well kept and has all the amenities we could wish for to enable us to have a comfortable and enjoyable stay. The added bonus of the balcony was an added bonus for our visit, as we were lucky enough to enjoy decent enough weather so our daughter could spend most of her time outdoors and we could enjoy dinner/drinks outside in the evenings. The location of the lodge is very close to the park reception, catering, leisure facilities and play parks, whilst the White Cross Bay Park is within walking distance (10-15 mins max) of Brockhole Visitor Centre where there are plenty of things to do with kids and you can also catch the ferry to other areas of the lake.
