  • "We spent a week at Sheffield pike lodge."

    The lodge is really spacious despite there being 6 people and a dog. The large windows have beautiful views of the fells which we looked at all day, and there is a lovely large decking area for when the weather is good. Unfortunately we only got one evening to sit outside because the weather was poor but the views can be seen from the lounge anyway. It is a modern lodge with all the essentials. The only thing that affected us was the complete lack of Wi-Fi which we felt could be easily remedied with a cheap booster. This meant we couldn't listen to music, download films for the kids etc. Over a week that became frustrating. It is also starting to look a little tired, and specifically the mattresses on the single beds need replacing. Otherwise a lovely place to stay. Limefitt park is in a beautiful area of the Lakes and the 2 pubs nearby are great. What did you enjoy most about your stay? The views and the space. What one experience (e.g attraction, walk, day out) would you recommend for our future guests? Walk over to Ambleside

    Mrs Anne McveySep 2020

  • "Stayed for a week."

    The lodge was everything we hoped for and more; super clean, spacious and comfortable. The site itself was great, staff very friendly and helpful. Great place for kids with the park and a lovely river for them to paddle in. Would highly recommend and the location was ideal. What did you enjoy most about your stay? Location of the site, close to Bowness and Ambleside What one experience (e.g attraction, walk, day out) would you recommend for our future guests? Definitely Brockhole if you have children

    Mrs Lisa WoodSep 2020

  • "Stayed here for a week and really enjoyed it walked over the top of wansfell pike to go to Ambleside which you can do from the park, easy walking into boweness and Windermere, so easy to sit outside with great views, went to the pub also on site which is well organised to suit social distancing, the rock pool in the stream was also good to cool you down after a long walk 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? Do wansfell pike to Ambleside

  • "Sheffield Pike is a lovely 3 bed lodge but could be improved by upgrading the some of the kitchen equipment - for example, all the sharp knives (for food prep) were extremely blunt."

    There are oodles of wine glasses but not enough tumblers and no (child friendly) plastic tumblers or plastic plates. We were there with 3 children following a week in a smaller cottage (and much cheaper) in Wales where there was every kitchen utensil you could ask for, plastic cups and plates and an array of cooking dishes. I appreciate some people eat out all the time, but others don't and it is a self-catering lodge. Also the advertised 'strong wifi' was non-existent in the lodge and could be faintly accessed (some of the time) if out on the decking (not easy when it is raining hard). On the site I found the 'adventure' playground hugely disappointing (adventure really does not belong in it's title) as did my kids (aged14-9) - it was not suitable for any children over about 7. As this is the main child activity area (as well as the 'recreation ground - which is just a space with a goalpost) I expected it to have something for all ages of children. Even my youngest found the zip wire so low it was almost impossible to use. For a big site, the play area is woefully small and under equipped. The (young) staff on the reception desk seemed mostly disinterested in customer service so didn't bother. Whilst we liked the space and quiet of the accommodation, I don't feel the site 'amenities' met the usual standard of a Park Resorts site, including the (lack of) customer service and would probably opt for a different site next time. What did you enjoy most about your stay? The proximity to lots of the Lakes' natural attractions What one experience (e.g attraction, walk, day out) would you recommend for our future guests? Glenridding to How Town walk on Ullswater with paddlesteamer ride back.

    Mrs Fiona DagenaisSep 2018

  • "The lodge was clean and comfortable and suited our needs."

    Being dog friendly was a huge plus for us so it really was a family holiday. The Park itself was also very clean and neat. Great facilities for children outdoors. I would not hesitate to recommend. It's in a great location for all The Lakes attractions. What did you enjoy most about your stay? That the children could play out safely and make friends What one experience (e.g attraction, walk, day out) would you recommend for our future guests? Treetop trek at the lakes visitor centre nearby

    Mrs Catherine BarkerAug 2018

  • "On arriving at the park we were made very welcome by the Park staff and were given explicit directions."

    The cabin was very welcoming with Christmas lights and a tree. It was very well equipped with everything that you could think of. There were some nice walks on the park and plenty to do in the surrounding areas. The only downside was the bad weather but that is normal in the Lake District. Overall we had a great time. What did you enjoy most about your stay? Great cabin. very comfortable What one experience (e.g attraction, walk, day out) would you recommend for our future guests? Ravenglass steam railway

    Mr Richard GarbuttJan 2018

  • "A beautiful lodge with all we hoped for and more."

    Super clean and comfortable. Lovely location with good walks on the doorstep, perfect! What did you enjoy most about your stay? Staying at the logdge was peaceful and relaxing What one experience (e.g attraction, walk, day out) would you recommend for our future guests? Many local walks

  • "I never usually write reviews as one person's view is not generally shared by all, however, I felt compelled to in this instance."

    We booked this lodge due to overseas holidays being extremely expensive by comparison and right from booking with Lake District Lodge Holidays this has been by far the best, most friendly, most accommodating experience I have ever encountered. The staff are so friendly and in my opinion go above and beyond to achieve customer satisfaction. We had booked a different lodge to accommodate 4 people, however, due to one of our party not being able to come we asked if we could bring others and bring a put up bed as there would now be additional people. Whilst we appreciated it was a 4 person lodge we were happy to rough it in a put up bed, however, the staff at Lake District Lodge Holidays quickly found an alternative in Sheffield Pike and switched our booking with our consent. On the day of arrival we were stunned at the tranquility and the setting of the park and instantly knew this boded well for a much needed break. Upon checking in and making our way to the lodge we passed several other beautiful lodges and were encouraged as to what we may be able to expect. My wife and my sister-in-law were the first ones to enter the lodge and whilst I was unloading the car they re-emerged with beaming smiles. I simply could not wait to experience what they had just experienced and made my way in. My only words are Wow. The Lodge far exceeded anything I could have ever imagined! Considering this is somebody's actual asset/holiday home it felt like it was also my home. The cleanliness was second to none, the personal touches and possessions the owner has put in this lodge are beautiful and stylish and the lodge was also well equipped enabling us to instantly unwind and enjoy our stay. We had 2 dogs amongst our party, a labrador and a spaniel and whilst the lodge only accepted one dog, Lake District Lodge holidays consulted the owner and we were ecstatic to learn due to the breed the owner was happy for us to take the dogs. Our dogs are fully house trained and instantly seemed at home in the lodge and slept with ease. Mind you I guess that could be in part to the amount of walking that we accomplished. The rules of the lodge stipulated dogs are not allowed on any of the furniture and we and they respected that and it is a fair request given other people would want to experience the same luxurious stay that we did. I would like to thank Lake District Lodge Holidays and the owner personally for allowing us to create some wonderful memories. I have already looked to see if I could book next year but it is fully booked :-( What did you enjoy most about your stay? The quality of the lodges fixtures, fittings and the cleanliness. What one experience (e.g attraction, walk, day out) would you recommend for our future guests? I personally like skelwith bridge to elterwater

    Mr Alyn RobertsAug 2017

  • "We arrived at this fabulous log cabin in the most beautiful setting with the added bonus of glorious sunshine!"

    The park was quiet when we were there, with a lovely relaxed atmosphere although the park is greatly located for getting out and about. We visited the onsite pub once but had most of our refreshments and food in The Queens Head and The Mortal Man , both recommended . The accommodation was truly impressive, high quality furnishings , very spacious and immaculately clean with a large decking area which is raised to take in the lovely views. All in a all from booking , arrival to departure we had the most perfect holiday, highly recommended! What did you enjoy most about your stay? Location and accommodation What one experience (e.g attraction, walk, day out) would you recommend for our future guests? Visit to Grasmere
