  • "The lodge was beautiful, very clean, very spacious, lots of cooking and cutlery implements."

    Bathrooms were clean and spacious and lots of clean towels were provided. We did have an issue with the hob which if you were doing a lot of cooking could have been a problem as it was difficult to light. The main reason we booked this lodge was for the hot tub which was situated on the decking overlooking the mountains which was lovely. Unfortunately the hot tub did not work correctly, it was hot but the jets were not working to full capacity, we reported this and somebody came out to check it, they were unable to resolve the issue and based on the information they provided it seems that there is a on going issue with the hot tub. It was very disappointing as this was a main feature of our break, and I feel that if it was an ongoing issue maybe we could have been informed prior to us arriving, and some kind of resolution could have been reached, regarding either another lodge or a monetary reduction.

    We are delighted you thought Wainwright Lodge was beautiful, spacious and very clean. We have really focused on cleanliness during the Covid period and will continue to do so. Thanks for your comments about the Hot Tub, we have had the Tub checked by an Engineer, as you said it was working but one jet was weaker, we are pleased to say as of 19th November the Engineer managed to restore the power to that jet and the Tub is now operating at 100% efficiency.

    Our experience was somewhat marred by the fact that the lodge had not been cleaned and we had to wait a further 2 1/2 hours after we arrived to access the lodge. This being said I would definitely stay here again.

    Thank you for your feedback and we offer our apologies that the Lodge had not been cleaned. We are however delighted that you found the Lodge perfect and very dog friendly and will be delighted to welcome you back to Wainwright Lodge in the future. Property Owner

  • "This is our 3rd trip to Limefitt Lodges, we booked the Wainwright lodge on the day we returned from a brilliant break as lockdown was easing Summer 2020 but unfortunately this break we encountered a few issues."

    Firstly we would like to say the lodge is in a nice location, not overlooked with the added bonus of a hot tub and the guy who came out every day was very pleasant and friendly, all staff on site including the Haybarn were very friendly. We had problems with the fridge keeping food cool, this was reported and somebody came out while we were out and an email was received saying the fridge was working fine and implied the vents were blocked, by this time we had to throw out fresh produce and had ice packs inside to try and keep butter cool including a birthday cake. There was no improvement to the coolness of the fridge for the duration of our holiday, it was last tested in 2018 we would recommend a service. We also had a power cut for 7 hours, which was also reported and it came back on the morning we were leaving which spoilt our last evening. We would like to address, as have other recent visitors regarding the huge price increases for 2022, we booked this lodge in July 2020 for £1134.00 for 7 nights in 2021 and the same week if we wanted to return in July 2022 is £2030!! Even with the effects of covid 19 and inflation this price increase is unethical and unjustified. Unfortunately as other visitors have commented you have outpriced us returning.

    Thank you for your feedback, we are delighted that you appreciated the excellent position of Wainwright Lodge with its delightful views up the valley, of course best viewed from the Hot Tub! Our apologies for the fridge it seems that it was working intermittently, this said we replaced it with a new Fridge Freezer unit on Friday. It has been difficult to source a replacement with poor availability and delayed deliveries at the moment. In the interim we had a temporary unit in place. The power cut was throughout the site and is very unusual and outside of our control. Please accept our apologies. In terms of the pricing this runs on a dynamic model, and higher prices are based on higher demand, however if the Lodge has lower demand the prices will fall. Please be reassured that all our guests who booked throughout the pandemic and had to cancel due to Covid were all given full no quibble refunds. Property Owner

  • "It’s a great lodge in a fantastic position looking up towards the hills."

    Especially Lovely when in hot tub.I could not fault anything with this lodge. Staff on site were very friendly. Would of loved to rebook for next year but unfortunately prices have doubled.

    Thank you very much for your very kind comments about Wainwright Lodge, it really is in a great spot and as you suggest the view from the Hot Tub is fantastic. Regarding the price, the prices for July 2022 have increased and you may see a larger difference due to your booking being made back in 2019 and having to be moved twice due to the pandemic. A lot has happened with Covid in that time during which we have honoured the prices our lodge was booked at and given full no quibble guarantees throughout. It would be our pleasure as owners to have you visit our lodge again in the future. Property Owner

    This lodge is looking tired and the photographs on you website do not portray the true condition of the fixtures fittings and furniture

    Thank you for your feedback. We are disappointed with your comments but I can assure you the photographs were only taken about 18 months ago. Since then the biggest change has been the upgrade of the 65inch TV and supporting personal WiFi. We have also removed some of the soft furnishings and ornaments in line with Covid recommendations. Wainwright is our own personal Lodge and we invest in the fixtures and fittings continuously and we will continue to do this as we move forward. Property Owner

  • "Limefitt is always a pleasure."

    I am shocked and disappointed to see the rates for lodges you are charging for later this year and into 2022 its a joke and completely unethical in my opinion. Its likely we will not return in the near future which is a huge disappointment - two and a half times what we have just paid for 4 nights is just not acceptable. I would appreciate your comments

    We are delighted you found your visit to Wainwright Lodge a pleasure. In terms of prices we can only comment on Wainwright Lodge where the prices going forward have increased slightly to reflect the demand for UK Staycations. It is also the case that during this covid period many guests have received no quibble full refunds for cancellations or were allowed to move cancelled dates to late 2020 and 2021 at no extra cost. We do hope you will return and enjoy another fabulous stay with us. Property Owner

    The lodge is cosy and has everything you need, a little tired in need of a few touch ups other than that it was perfect. We had an issue with WiFi and even when reported nothing was done to rectify this, with it being Christmas we planned on using Facebook portal to see family which without the WiFi we were unable to do. The hot tub is great with an amazing view probably the best spot on the site view wise. The site has a pub which at the moment is closed but a little up the road was a lovely pub called the Queens head, there is a dog field and park which was great for my daughter and two dogs we took with us. Great place for winter we even got snow on Christmas Day. Prefect break, we even tried to extend our stay but it was already booked up and hoping to book for next Christmas. Highly recommend.

  • "Wainwright Lodge is located on a site with many other lodges and facilities such as a nice pub, laundrette, dog walking field, picnic spots, play area for kids and a shop!"

    That being said, it still has a really rural remote feeling to it, because the site itself is in such a beautiful location surrounded by nature walks up hills, and fields with sheep! Its an easy 10 minute drive to Windermere, so perfectly located. The lodge itself probably has the best view in the house with a beautiful, always warm hot tub overlooking great scenery (and the stars at night are something special)! It is comfortable whilst not feeling cramped with a modern fitted kitchen and all the mod cons, the bed was SUPER comfy (we actually bought a new duvet when coming home because of how comfy this one was)!! It has a smart TV with all the apps (for people wanting to chill out) and stays lovely and warm throughout. The game changer for us was that they were both dog friendly AND baby friendly as this was our first family holiday all together and I wouldn't have changed a single thing. We had an amazing time here, I would absolutely recommend it to anyone and want to come back!! What did you enjoy most about your stay?
