  • "The lodge was brilliant just a shame there is an issue with the boiler."

    Had heating or hot water when we arrived. That got sorted, went to the pub for a bit and came back no heating again. Out of hours numbers aren't right so ended up walking back up the pub for help. Thankfully it was sorted but on last day water was rising in boiler again.

    Thank you for your valued feedback. We are glad to see the issue was rectified in a timely manner. I will pass this issue to the attention of the Maintenance Manager.We apologies for the inconvenience this may have caused. We hope that we can welcome you back soon. Property Owner

    limefitt Park is spot on as always.

    Thank you for your feedback and your comments, they have been passed to our maintenance team who will look into these further. Please accept our apologies for the inconvenience caused. We do hope you will return and visit us again. Property Owner

  • "From the moment we walked in you could see the surfaces where dirty, luckly for us i packed cleaning spray and clothes."

    Me,wife and my 2 children ages 10 and 8 spent over an hour tryin to get roe deer lodge up to a clean standard great start to a holiday. Dirty unhygienic run down lodge. If i could post pictures of the grime filth i would as i took photos (work tops, table, chairs, sofa matress protectors, matresses, hot tub filter - I spent 45mins pull off hairs and god knows what off. Just short if £1200 for a weeks holiday and next years price £2645 dont book! Would of given 0 stars but can't.

    Thank you for your feedback and we are sorry to hear that you did not enjoy your stay in Roe Deer Lodge. Had we been made aware of the cleaning issues on your arrival, we would have requested the cleaner to return to put these things right for you. They should not have happened and please accept our apologies for the inconvenience caused. Our prices are constantly under review and looked after by our pricing team. Property Owner

  • "We enjoyed the lodge, it was clean but not spotless, is in the perfect position."

    The lodge is looking dated, needs a lick of paint, rust showing through the radiators. The decking was not good rotting in places, the hot tub was good but the cover was in a terrible state. Pictures of the lodge showed 2 recliner chairs on the decking but were not provided. We were there for 11 nights and expected an extra set of towels bedding for the second week, contacted lakedistrict lodges but they told me to contact the owners, how? Would stay in this lodge again if it were updated but checking price for next year too expensive.

    Thank you for your feedback. We are pleased to hear you enjoyed the lodge and thank you for bringing a couple of points to our attention. These will be looked into. We are sorry for the confusion about the change of linen and towels, this is offered on 14 night stays or more only, please accept our apologies. It would be our pleasure to welcome you back and maybe visit another lodge on our portfolio. Property Owner

    The cabin was comfortable, well-equipped and warm and the surrounding countryside provided lots of good walks for the dog and spectacular views. We enjoyed ourselves so much that on the day we got home we booked to return next year! What did you enjoy most about your stay? The views, the fresh air and not having the usual Christmas!

    The lodge was clean, warm and welcoming and we settled straight in. We enjoyed visiting some of the local attractions in the morning and relaxing in the hot tub in the afternoon.

    Roe Deer Lodge was very clean and tidy and well equipped.

We had an issue with the hot tub which has overheated when we arrived however one phone call to the park and we had someone to help within half an hour and it was sorted and ready to use! The staff across all the park, reception (even gave my mother in law their own staff sweetners as they didn't have any in the shop!) Pub and park were all so friendly!

  • "It's described as a lodge but really it is a mobile home decorated on the outside to look like a lodge."

    As such the description is wrong and if they set the rent saying it's a lodge then that's wrong. This is why it is NOT good value. Location is stunning, park ok. The pub on site was ok though food below par. Would NOT recommend this park to another. However if you have not been to the Lake district or have not visited for sometime its definitely worth a visit. What did you enjoy most about your stay? Location. What one experience (e.g attraction, walk, day out) would you recommend for our future guests? Visit the Lakes but don't bother with Windermere far too touristy.

  • "Myself and my wife stayed here Friday to Monday on June 28th."

    Lodge was nice but could maybe do with updating. Was a very hot weekend but the fan wasn't working. Hot tub was fine. Nice play field for your dog. Our German Shepherd loved his stay. Onsite pub was really friendly, but a bit quiet. We ate there twice and the food was good. We have looked to stay again but would go for one of the cheaper lodges without a hot tub...the warden for the park, frim whitley bay was so helpful for us in getting something we forgot and went out of his way to help..overall we loved our stay...

  • "On arriving Friday PM our hot tub was at 28C, we waited and saw if it would warm up and when it didn't went to the site managers office to ask for help- he was a little confused and said as the lodge was private and not owned by the site he was unable to assist but recommended looking on the internet re the controls."

    This we did- to no avail, finally ringing the emergency maintenance guy who was very helpful- taking us through some things to try on the control panel before phoning the site manager and instructing him to get an immediate repair to the hot tub ASAP (IE Saturday morning) as it was the responsibility of the site to maintain and make good faults. On Saturday morning the excellent site maintenance guy was very helpful, identified an air lock- cleared it drained half of the tub and refilled with hot water and dechlorinated allowing us to use straight away. He was very helpful as we had two children who were looking forward to using the tub. Walked around Troutbeck and crossed beck by several nice bridges- ran down to Windermere and back on various quiet roads- leisure facility looked nice just 2 miles away but too busy to use it- had a nice drive around with kids and saw some crazy cyclists ascending the valley and not grimacing ! Amazing fortitude. Play area was nice and clean and all items operative- food was very nice in on site pub- children enjoyed it a great deal- water pressure was fantastic for showers ! What did you enjoy most about your stay? The area was beautiful and quiet- amazing for running/ walking. What one experience (e.g attraction, walk, day out) would you recommend for our future guests? Walk down to church, cross valley by lane past old vicarage and up to Old Post Office (now excellent tea/coffee shop with GF cakes)- carry on to left and re-cross valley by new footbridges to return to site- 45 mins walk.

  • "I booked and stayed at this lodge through Lakedistrict holidays."

    We found the park without difficulty, the setting / location itself is magnificent. Upon arrival to the park we reported to reception where a friendly staff member gave us instructions, directions and general information. The lodge on the whole was well presented (asides from some points raised below) and our experience was enjoyable. The sunken hot tub is a fantastic feature and adds to the enjoyment. The lodge is nicely decorated with a functional kitchen. This was a dog friendly cabin, it was secure with a fence and gate there is ample room for dogs to play around the lodge however, there is also a dog field a couple of minutes walk from the lodge. Windermere town is about a 15 minute drive from the park. Here you have supermarkets the biggest one being Booths, restaurants, coffee shops etc. You can also arrange cruises / boat excursions. Now onto the negatives, When we entered the lodge there was a TP Link router which despite all our efforts we could not connect to. As reception was closed by this time, we left it until the morning after to report it. There was a different staff member who was not at all helpful. He said that the park did not keep passwords and would have to try and contact the lodge owner and to report back later. We done this and he said he tried to call them once and left a message as there was no answer. (He really did not care at all) This meant we had no WiFi for the duration of the stay other than the park hotspots which you are lucky if you get more than one page loaded on. On the booking website, it said all towels are provided for the duration of the stay. However, this is not true, they do indeed provide one bath towel and one hand towel per guest, but they do not provide any for use of the hot tub. In addition to this, considering you're asked to shower before and after every use of the hot tub, and I like I imagine many others shower after coming back from the muddy walks along the lakes, then another for my general daytime shower, that one towel becomes very wet and in need of a change. You are however, only provided with one towel for the duration of your stay. The information provided in the manual conflicts vs the information given in the instruction email which can cause confusion. Also, there was a plastic wallet with a document inside which asked us to leave feedback and also, to fill out a form if there were any problems or faults. These documents were nowhere to be found in the lodge. There were however, some faults: What did you enjoy most about your stay?

  • "To start, the location of our lodge was beautiful, surrounded by lovely views on all sides."

    On the booking it said there was room for two cars... not really though, so if the two car you're taking are huge, I'd maybe rethink the parking. On arrival the lodge was mostly clean but lost of tiny dead flies on the windowsill in the kitchen. The bedrooms and bathrooms were great, comfortable and very clean! Living area was smart, clean and comfy. Decking area was tidy and hottub nice and clean! I feel that the welcome folder needs updating!! We found other peoples booking information in there and it just looked old and needs an update. The instructions for the hottub aren't great! We assumed it would stay hot unless we changed the settings but when we can to use it on the second day the temperature had dropped down a fair bit and when we called reception we got told that it goes into sleep mode... this isn't in the instructions. The pub on site is great, food is good and the management team are really lovely!! It's a shame though that it can get super busy with not enough staff which resulted in the kitchen being closed for an hour during service time! We were lucky and ordered beforehand but we felt bad for the young families coming in for food and having to wait around with young children. All in all the site is fantastic and staff are very helpful! We had a lovely stay and didn't want to come home! What did you enjoy most about your stay? The views and how quiet it was! Very relaxed! What one experience (e.g attraction, walk, day out) would you recommend for our future guests? There's an escape room around 30 minutes away (driving) it's great fun!

  • "I stayed here with my husband and 2 young teenage children."

    The lodge really was home from home, every facility catered for from kitchen utensils to bedding, there wasn't anything that I needed that I couldn't find. The beds were really comfy and having 2 showers to use was a great bonus. There was even books and jigsaws for a rainy day and food and water bowls for the dog. There isn't a washing machine but there is a launderette on site if you really want to do washing on your holiday? There is a under counter fridge and a 3 draw freezer so I could stock up. The decking area is very spacious with outdoor furniture and was enclosed so the dog couldn't get out. This is a lovely lodge with fantastic views all around. What did you enjoy most about your stay? The peaceful surroundings and home comforts. What one experience (e.g attraction, walk, day out) would you recommend for our future guests? Go to the trail behind the Haybarn Inn and turn left, you can walk for miles in beautiful scenery and not have to cross any roads.

    Just a minor point but after segregating all my waste and placing in the separate bins I noted the contractors waste collection then mixed it all together. Nothing to do with the site but worthy for them to be aware of this. There was a great selection of books, games, information and DVDs for entertainment in the accommodation. We took a high chair and travel cot but only found them in a cupboard in one of the bedrooms which wasn't well advertised on the website that such equipment was available. These a re minor points and i would recommend this site to others. What did you enjoy most about your stay?

    Beautiful lodge which was clean and had all the essentials for a stay. Loved the hot tub and we were so lucky with the weather whilst down there. Great location, only a ten minute drive from Bowness which has lots of lovely pubs and restaurants. The park was lovely and quiet with lovely views, it was so nice to go and relax in the hot tub outside and look at the blue sky after a long day of walking. I couldn't fault our stay.

  • "Overall a great place to stay, especially if you have a family."

    The football pitch, children's park, dog walking field, on-site shop and pub are ideal facilities for a family holiday in the Lake District. Booking process and welcome was outstanding - excellent communication throughout. Pleasant experience. Lodge was to a good clean standard but does need some maintenance improvements. Firstly, the positive comments about the lodge itself: - Facilities in Lodge were excellent; well fitted out kitchen with everything you need. - Decking area is large and hot tub was a welcome addition - Both the bathroom and en-suite were clean, spacious and hot water always available with good pressure for shower - Double bed in main bedroom was very comfortable - Lounge/Dining area also comfortable There are areas which require maintenance (some of which I'm sure are a health & safety risk):- The decking area: - Being a wooden construction and in the Lake District I'm sure it takes a good weathering. However, the top step is very rotten and is on the verge of breaking and causing someone a serious injury. - The latch on the gate is rusty and I had to screw the fitting back in twice - Just behind the hot tub, one of the fence slats has become rotten and had blown through. Luckily I noticed before my dog and managed to temporarily put it back into place. The hot tub: - Overall the standard of cleanliness was good except for the hot tub. Whilst we did use it, I did wonder when we first sat in it if all the scum on the top was from us (we showered before hand) or whether it just hadn't been cleaned between changeovers!?! Carpet in lounge/dining area: - Looked very worn and the stains had given it a 'shabby chic' pattern on what was a lovely beige carpet!! Seriously though, as a dog friendly lodge and one with a hot tub, I would consider laying wooden flooring in the lounge/area. I would definitely return to this holiday park again and are looking at returning over New Year. However, I'd want reassurances all the above maintenance had been completed before returning to Roe Deer Lodge. What did you enjoy most about your stay? The holiday park facilities What one experience (e.g attraction, walk, day out) would you recommend for our future guests? The walk up the fells and down into Troutbeck was lovely.

  • "Beautiful views, nice and clean, great for the dog."

    Would definitely book again! Didnt need to move of site as we had everything there. pub was lovely, sat outside in the sun and had lunch one day, then headed back to the log cabin and got in the hot tub. So relaxing! Wifi wasn't very good but we weren't to bothered as we enjoyed relaxing and going for walks and spending weekend having fun. Would love to go back to the same lodge, I have already looked at booking again but the prices have gone up a lot which is my only down fall. #beautiful place #lovely views #pieceful weekend #doggyfun.....................

    The views in the morning were lovely whilst walking the dog. The staff in the shop were helpful and pleasant.

    Mr Michael McintyreJul 2016

  • "The park that Roe Dear lodge is situated in is a beautiful place, the staff are excellent and the facility's are great to."

    The lodge itself was good but there was ages minor problems that let it down a bit. The Hot Tub had to be refilled every morning we are presuming due to a leak, the seal on the bottom of the shower screen in the main bathroom was split and leaking and also the radiator in the same bathroom was also leaking this was brought to the attention of the company and they assured us it would be fixed after our departure so they did not interrupt our holiday. The only other negative thing I could say it that the lodge could do with a bit more cutlery and utensils. Roe Dear was comfortable clean and in a lovely location and we throughly enjoyed our stay.

    Mrs Denise HardingSep 2015

  • "Lake District Lodge holidays were very helpful when booking as there was a problem with the website."

    We inadvertently left some clothes they were very helpful in sorting this out too. The staff in Limefitt Park reception were not so helpful I found them a bit sullen, like they didn't want to be there. The Lodge itself whilst small and compact was modern, clean and nicely done with everything we needed. Although I couldn't find extra bin bags! I would consider it great for a weekend break. The beds and sofa were very comfortable and the showers in both bathrooms were very good. The decked area outside was a good size and the hot tub was an added bonus. It was great that it was all fenced off so the dog couldn't escape! The only negatives was some of the lodges were a bit close together, and the dog walking field wasn't great. What did you enjoy most about your stay? Visiting the Lake District What one experience (e.g attraction, walk, day out) would you recommend for our future guests? We enjoyed our trip to Coniston and had a nice walk at Eltewater.

What did you enjoy most about your stay? the view in the morning, going in the hot tub, and the comfort of the lodge. What one experience (e.g attraction, walk, day out) would you recommend for our future guests? There is a walk starting from behind the pub on site, beautiful view from the top.

    Mr Gary ReganApr 2015

  • "The weekend was made perfect by the loveliness of the log cabin and its location."

    As we sat in the hot tub at night we were joined (not too closely)! by deer's and even a badger wondered past. The location is close to walks and also a short drive into Windermere.

This property is part of the Lake District Lodge Holidays collection.
From the moment you arrive in the Lake District there is a huge choice of activities and things to see as you take in Britain’s latest World Heritage Site – it’s the only National Park to be recognised for such status.

The property

Roe Deer is a modern, comfortable holiday lodge for four people, at Limefitt Park, in the Troutbeck Valley near Windermere in a lovely position overlooking a small woodland, the playing fields and the fells beyond.

There is a bright open plan living space, with the kitchen semi- divided from the dining area.

A modern leather corner sofa and chairs allow plenty of space to relax and watch the flat screen TV/DVD player.

There are two bedrooms, one ensuite and one family bathroom.

Roe Deer Lodge has an outside extended decking area, a sunken hot tub and amazing views to enjoy.

From here you can imagine watching the sun go down, listening to the birds and perhaps seeing some wildlife.

Your lodge is located in one of the loveliest parks in the area – surrounded by the Troutbeck Valley, with beautiful fells and views all around.

Roe Deer Lodge is only four miles from Windermere village, a bustling vibrant centre with shops, pubs and cafes; or a mile further on to the cosmopolitan Bowness with steam cruises, restaurants and shops.

Back at Limefitt, you have two great local pubs in walking distance, there’s a pub and small shop on site too.

You can literally walk from your front door up on the pathways above to the Garburn Pass and onto High Street.

Or if you fancy a potter around lovely quiet lanes there is plenty to choose from.

On the other side of the valley is Wansfell Pike and over to Ambleside.

Driving to Ambleside is around four miles, and Glenridding the village on the shores of Ullswater is ten miles away.

Roe Deer is a wonderful setting for your Lake District holiday
