We have just returned from a weeks stay & can't fault this place, we stayed in a 3 bedroom lodge with hot tub (no. 70), the accommodation was spotless. Staff extremely polite & friendly. Such a peaceful place & great base to explore the surrounding areas. We will definitely return.

A beautiful peaceful place right on the lake edge, with excellent friendly staff. Lodge facilities excellent. A quiet retreat for an escape tucked out of the way. Even with the wet Cumbria weather we were warm and cozy.

My partner and I have just returned from a 3 night break here & we couldn't fault the place! The lodge we stayed in (the Hard Knott) was beautiful. It was my partner's birthday and the staff had decorated our lodge with banners and balloons and even left us a bottle of Prosecco and chocs which was a fabulous surprise!...
