“Fabulous lodge, disappointing outdoor area.”

Booking was simple, all the information we needed prior to arrival was sent in an email. On arrival the lodge was very well presented, welcoming and warm. The location excellent, the views spectacular. However our 'wonderful semi-enclosed and open veranda complete with outdoor furniture' as described by the holiday company left a lot to be desired. The deck was often slippery due to algae, the front doorstep was rotting and breaking up, the uncovered BBQ so rusty and full of water it was impossible to use. The outdoor area is in need of lots of TLC. This was a big disappointment to us as this was one of the things that attracted us to the property. As lovers of the outdoors we planned ahead and brought a variety of food to store in the freezer and cook on our BBQ. Ironically the weather was very good and ideal for outdoor cooking which made the not so inviting outdoor area more of an irritation!

“If you love wildlife, tranquility and exceptional comfort you'll love this lodge”
Reviewed 24 July 2012 for a stay in July 2012

Skiddaw View Holiday Park is a superb hideaway with fabulous views of Skiddaw. The site was exceptionally quiet, clean and well kept. Apple Tree Lodge was delightful, with every home comfort. It is situated at the very back of the park in an elevated position overlooking the mountains and Bassenthwaite Lake. We thorougly enjoyed our stay and were enchanted with the wildlife we were treated to from our cosy sofa. We loved the peaceful setting and as we visited outside school holidays there were very few children around. No shop on site and nearest towns are Cockermouth and Keswick but we found a little shop with basic provisions about 5 miles down the road towards Keswick on another holiday park. Only draw back was no WiFi in the Logde, although was available near reception.
