  • "The property was in a lovely location on Limefitt Park."

    It had all the basic amenities for our stay. We have stayed in lots of lodges in Limefitt Park in the past so have lots to compare. Walkers Retreat is the most basic of all the lodges we have stayed in - aside from 2 X-box games there was no other form of entertainment: a couple of family board games or jigsaws would be a nice addition. Also, there was a hanky & discarded tissue down the side of the bed in the main bedroom on arrival. We did have a lovely stay and I’m glad I was over prepared by bringing little extras like oil, condiments, extra toilet rolls and games & toys for the children. Other lodges have had these extras and these little touches have made our stay more enjoyable in the past. One other ‘extra’ things we’ve experienced in other lodges have been leaflets of things to do in the area and a guestbook.

    Thank you for your feedback, we are glad you enjoyed the location of the lodge. We requested that the owners took small items out of the lodges due to Covid but are starting to put them back. We have also passed the cleaning issue to the cleaning manager. We apologise for any inconvenience these issues may have caused you. We look forwards to welcoming you back. Property Owner

  • "The accommodation was as advertised and there were no unwelcome surprises."

    The view at Walker's Retreat is spectacular and the convenience of the location and on-site facilities was excellent. As a family of 4 on our summer holiday, it was perfect. I would highly recommend Walker's Retreat to others.

  • "The lodge was great."

    Very comfy and clean with everything we needed for a great stay. Views were stunning, location brilliant. Facilities great. Staff friendly. Only one issue: the fridge wasn’t working properly as it froze everything in it from milk to cucumbers! We turned the setting down to the lowest possible but everything still came out like ice lollies!

  • "This is the 3rd time we have stayed at Walker's Retreat."

    It's a beautiful well kept lodge in a very good position on the site, it has good views and the decking is a sun trap (when it's out). It's close to the Hay Barn Inn (5 mins through the woods at the rear). The Hay Barn was open when we were here and was following all the Covid 19 rules. It's a great location for exploring the fells. You can access the Ill Bell ridge from here and go on to High Street. There is also wildlife to be seen if you're lucky. We saw deer and badgers in the woods behind the lodge. It's also a great location for exploring the Lakes. Windermere is not far away. What did you enjoy most about your stay? We enjoy the fell walking but the wildlife was a highlight too. What one experience (e.g attraction, walk, day out) would you recommend for our future guests? I would recommend walking up to High Street over Yoke and Ill Bell and then back down through the Troutbeck valley. You can do this straight from the lodge, the path is behind the Haybarn Inn.

  • "Last time we stayed here I gave it a deserved 5 star review."

    Even though we have marked it down slightly this time it is still really a 5 star lodge and I would certainly stay here again and thoroughly recommend it. The reason we have marked it down slightly this time is because we had a few problems. The first problem we had was that we could not get the gas cooker hobs to light. This was on a Sunday. We reported this but were told they couldn't come out on a Sunday and to use a match to light the hobs. This didn't work. We then left the day. When we returned we found the heating wasn't working. We did not report this until the Monday morning when we were leaving. In hindsight we should have done so on Sunday, the reason we didn't was because when we had reported the Hob we had been told they couldn't come out on Sunday. We therefore thought the same would apply to the heating. Finally when we got up on Monday morning we found there was no hot water so could not have a shower. I have since been told they checked the Hob after we left and it was working perfectly. So it's a mystery why it wouldn't work on Sunday or Monday morning. (We had used it on Saturday). They also told us the heating needed a simple reset and if we had told them they would have fixed it. I acknowledge that we should have reported it on Sunday but I have explained why we didn't. In conclusion I would still recommend this lodge. I am sure these problems will be ironed out for us, if we stayed there again, and for any future guests. (Maybe a note regarding the reset of the heating & hot water for guests) What did you enjoy most about your stay? It's a really comfortable lodge in a great location for sightseeing or walking. What one experience (e.g attraction, walk, day out) would you recommend for our future guests? We are walkers so there are many fells out there. The Lake District is a beautiful place.

  • "We were really impressed with Walkers Retreat lodge."

    It is a well set out lodge on a slight hill so it overlooks all the other lodges giving clear views of the hills. It is not overlooked. Behind it there is a wooded area. There is ample space to park a car next to the lodge. In fact although it states one car per lodge the parking bay at Walkers Retreat would accommodate two cars. The lounge area is spacious, both bedrooms are more compact but are adequate with plenty of storage space. There is one shower room with toilet that has two doors, one into the master bedroom creating an ensuite effect and one into the hall. There is also a separate toilet. The best part of the lodge though is the decking area. It wraps around the front and one side with access through the front door or patio doors from the lounge and dining area. We were lucky to have good weather when we were there and the decking area was a pleasant place to sit during the evenings facing the sun. The kitchen was well kept and clean. There is a pub, The Haybarn Inn, about 2 minutes away via a small path through the woods at the back of the lodge. The food there is passable, it has a patio area and a beer garden. The location of the park and lodge is very good. We stayed for a weekend on a walking trip but if you stayed longer it is a good base to explore the Lakes. The customer service was also excellent. The instructions to access the lodge were clear and precise and the booking experience as a whole was excellent .The receptionist at Limefitt Holiday Park was also very helpful. What did you enjoy most about your stay? Sitting outside on the decking area in the evening. Peaceful and relaxing. What one experience (e.g attraction, walk, day out) would you recommend for our future guests? We stayed here because we had planned walking up Scafell Pike. We did this from Great Langdale. Our route started at the Old Dungeon Ghyll. The route took us over The Band, Bow Fell, Esk Pike passed Great End and over Broad Crag to Scafell Pike. We decended via the path passed Tongue Head, Angle Tarn and Mickleden. This was a long walk, 8 hours. However I if you don't want to to do the whole walk I would recommend going as far as Bowfell and Esk Pike. A really nice walk and fantastic views. It takes about 20 minutes to drive to the Old Dungeon Ghyll from Walkers Retreat.

  • "We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at walkers retreat lodge."

    The lodge was well equipped for our needs and spacious. The lodge was in a lovely location and we were able to see some wild life from our lodge window. The location of the lodge is about 10 minutes drive from Bowness-on-Windermere, which is also a lovely place to visit. Would highly recommend this place to anyone.

  • "Walkers Retreat Lodge is a modern, spacious, well appointed lodge in an excellent raised position on the park, not overlooked by any other lodges, (except the adjacent lodge on the same elevation, but there is a dense screen of vegetation between)."

    The interior was modern and clean, with board-games, TV, DVD, (and films to watch) and an Xbox. The kitchen had everything you could need when staying away from home. The spacious fully enclosed decking area to the front and side of the lodge is a boon to families with young children. We were able to enjoy many evening meals on the outside table, safe in the knowledge that the children, (aged 1 & 2), were perfectly safe and unable to run off. What did you enjoy most about your stay? We loved the calmness and serenity of the park, sitting on the deck in the sunshine, with no traffic noise, enjoying the uninterrupted views across the valley. What one experience (e.g attraction, walk, day out) would you recommend for our future guests? The children particularly enjoyed our visit to the South Lakes Safari Park in Dalton on Furness.
