Just wanted to say that we had a lovely time at your lodge. We did so much walking that I needed a week off when we got back!
Sarah and Imran. Gloucester, June 2009

Would like to say again a big thank you. Even though the weather and floods got bad it still did not put us off, it's such a lovely place.
Nathan, Scunthorpe after the floods in November 2009

An ideal weekend. Great cabin with everything you could possibly need. We enjoyed some excellent trips into Ambleside and Windermere, even stopping by Grasmere for the famous gingerbread. The chilly morning coffees on the balcony will be greatly missed. It will be a shame to leave.
Louise, Jamie and Toby the Lurcher. Durham, May 2009

We spent a lot of time at the Queens Head pub. Very dog friendly and good food......especially the chocolate cheesecake!
Andy, Louisa and Alfie the dog, Apperley Bridge. May 2009

Perfect lodge, stunning location. Perfect weather for a cosy break - lots and lots of walking, hill climbing etc, (3ft of snow on top of Helvellyn), and of course eating and drinking. Thanks for a great week.

Thanks again for a wonderful view for 3 days! (Never seen such clear water!)
Vicki and Greg/Jonathon and Lorna, Chorley. March 2009

Really nice warm cabin, just the thing to come back to after a day on the hills. We have enjoyed our stay and don’t want to go home - Alan and Fran
I love my bed - Hannah
I fed the ducks outside on the decking - Charlie
