  • "Chose Tree Lodge because of the promise of a secluded setting."

    We weren't disappointed. Such a beautiful setting, surrounded by trees. We were very fortunate to be staying during the recent heatwave and the trees supplied a welcome shade. There are two seating areas, one with dapple shade the other full sun. So happy all round. Is situated up steep little hills which I struggled with as I have problems with my back, however, if you turn left at the end of the drive, it actually cuts out the the hilly walk and was a pleasure to discover. Made my life a little easier. Dog friendly. A secure veranda, but must make sure the gate is definitely closed as we hadn't one day and our dog did get out. Thankfully he didn't go too far. Typical beagle just stood and barked at everything. The lodge itself extremely clean. Smelt fresh. Beautiful decor. We did have trouble locking the main bathroom door and also the first twin room door doesn't close properly. The main front door lock was a little temperamental. It wouldn't work for me, but did for my husband

    Thank you for your feedback. We are glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay at Tree Lodge. We will pass your comments on to our maintenance team and ask them to have a look at the doors. We hope to welcome you back again. Property Owner

  • "Wow just Wow what a beautiful place from pulling up outside the lodge to leaving what a beautiful lodge."

    Very private & quite just what we wanted all week the weather was HOT & Sunny but due to the Lodge being in the Trees it stayed cool that was nice. Our little dog loved the closed in veranda she could walk around, layout and chill with out with out us worried her getting out. Would Definitely stay here again if we visit Lake District what a Amazing Lodge highly Recommend it.

    I just want to say ''Thank You'' to the owners and to Sykes for everything they did to guarantee no smells as I was travelling to the lodge from my wedding. Cannot wait to get back some time again in the future. Peace, comfort and tranquility at its peak.

    The spare bedroom door did not shut properly, the back door from inside is very difficult to unlock but they are the only two things I had issues with, but nothing to spoil my holiday, oh and a few towels were not 100% clean, had some stains on

    Thank you for your feedback and we are sorry to hear of the few issues you had during your stay. Had we known, we could have attended to resolve this issues you for. We do hope you return to enjoy another holiday with us. Property Owner

  • "The lodge was lovely and we had a great time but I would like to share some feedback."

    The cleanliness of the lodge was poor - When we arrived the dishwasher was full of crockery presumably from the previous stay. It is clear that the lodge is well used but the general cleanliness wasn't great. The main bedroom was dusty and all windows needed to be opened to remove the smell of dogs (it is advertised as dog friendly so this was expected) but perhaps some ventilation prior to guest arrivals would be advisable. The wifi is not accessible as advertised which wasn't a huge issue but may be for some guests. The lady on reception said the wifi doesn't reach that lodge anyway . I have stayed in a couple of other lodges on the site and I would describe this one as functional. Others have had some creature comforts such as tea, coffee, milk etc. Just a small touch and low cost would make the stay more special. With that in mind however, we had a great stay in a great location.

    Thank you for your valued feedback . We were most concerned to learn of the cleanliness issues, had you contacted us during your stay, we would have sent a member of our team down to look into the issues for you. The WiFi is provided by the park and so out of our control,Thank you for your recommendation of providing refreshments , we shall take this on board. We apologies for any inconvenience caused. We do hope you will return to the English Lake District. Property Owner

  • "Lovely park in a fantastic setting."

    Our cabin was rough around the edges but generally nice and clean. We found dirty pants & socks in a draw after searching for a bad smell from day 1. The sink was constantly blocked and a make shift drip tray on the U bend was doing a great job of collecting filthy water with a lingering smell. The water wasnt very hot but was ok for a quick shower in the cold weather. I would stop again but wouldnt expect the same type of lodge for the costs being charged.

    Thank you for your valued feedback. We will pass the cleaning issues to the housekeeping Manager to look into and the Maintenance Manager will look further at the sink and bathroom issues. We apologise for any inconvenience caused. We do hope you will return to the English Lake District. Property Owner

  • "Would definitely recommend this lodge!"

    The whole booking and checking in and out process was very easy. It was exactly as described, with excellent facilities and very clean. The park itself was great with lots of activities (such as swimming etc), but the lodge was in a lovely private and quiet spot. We will be looking to return soon!
