    Mr Marshall
    " Accommodation spacious and clean and had everything you needed , beds extremely comfortable hot tub checked every day , we noticed we had a wasps nest outside near hot tub on arrival so called the owner and he got it sorted next morning lots to do with children in surrounding areas i.e steam train ride, boat trips ,aquarium , car museum zoo and much more also shopping in Kendal . Had a great time thank you "
    Mrs Docherty
    " “Our third stay in this wonderful lodge. It is well equipped with everything you would need. The hot tub checked every day by the park warden. The owner is very helpful and responds quickly. Close enough for a lovely walk into village for nice food from the cavendish arms and cartmel wine snug. (Was a shame to see Kings Arms and Royal Oak closed down this time.) Can't wait to come back again next year.” "

    " Examples include damaged bathroom sink, dishwasher and hot tub lid holder. The DVD buzzed annoyingly.Some of the kitchen equipment is in a poor state, particularly the pans. We found it bizarre that there was a washing machine but no airer. Towels were small and thin. There were no hot tub towels or dressing gowns. We wondered whether the owner has ever lived in the lodge. For example there were no hooks to hang towels and no electricity point near a mirror so drying/curling hair was very difficult. Also the information pack was poor with no information on local facilities, recommendations for dining and walks etc. The visitor book was full and had not been changed since last year. All of this seems a great shame as the lodge is a good size, secluded and in a nice setting. A small amount of effort could make it really nice. "

    "Great to be able to chill out in the hot tub at the end of each day. Very comfortable lodge with everything you need and the nearby village of Cartmel is charming."
    Mrs Cocks
    " Floor was filthy with mud and dog hair from previous guests. Brushed floor myself then asked cleaning staff to return, they hoovered floor but did not mop. Normally I would not be bothered by this but due to current global pandemic and having to mop lodge floors myself I didn't feel this was acceptable. This is no complaint to owner of lodge, he is under the impression that more cleaning is being undertaken at present as stated to me on the phone when he informed me about key collection and probably paying extra and unfortunately this is just not the case.

    " Lodge was spacious and comfortable and hot tub was great. Just a couple of improvements based on previous experiences in places like this. Mainly those extra touches for example there was no hand soap provided, no little things like salt and pepper/ oil etc No welcome bottle of wine. So you do have to bring everything you can think of whereas other places these are provided. Hot tub lights broken and no shelter meaning on the day/night of the storm we couldn’t use it. Would be perfect on a summers day though! Overall it’s a lovely place and we’d go again, just missing the little extra touches. "

    " A total home from home but with an adventurous twist travelling with our two young sons. They loved it. The lodge was immaculate and perfect. The park so quiet. Felt like we were in our own little wilderness. The hot tub was a lovely addition and we enjoyed a relax after our days out. Situated in the perfect area to get to many places of interest all within an hours travelling with the exception of Blackpool which was only 1hr 10mins. Would definitely stay again. Thank you for a lovely stay "

    " The lodge itself is beautiful and actually much bigger than it looks on the photos. The location was fantastic, close to Cartmel, Windermere and countless beautiful places to walk. The lodge was clean, comfortable, nice and warm and lots of space for our dog to wander. The deck is secure too which was great as he was able to wander around and lay in the sun while we were in the hot tub and I didn't have to worry about him getting out. The facilities were also perfect, the kitchen was equipped with everything we needed to cook a meal to enjoy with friends and there are two bathrooms so no waiting for your turn. Would give this place 10 out of 10 and will definitely be staying again. "

    " Booked as a surprise for my partner for his birthday and he was extremely pleasantly surprised. Hot tub was spacious, clean and a perfect place to sit on a chilly night and star gaze. With no light pollution, we had never seen so many and it made for a perfect evening, or two! Kitchen had 99% of things needed to make any meal and what it didn’t have you could get by with so no drama cooking big scrumptious meals instead of eating out. And the dish washer made the experience a pleasure relaxing together afterwards instead of standing over a sink for 40 minutes. Bed spacious and comfortable. I took some spare loo roll and we needed it by the second day. There was a small amount of tea and coffee, hot chocolate, and sugars so the local shop was ideal for stocking up on bits needed. I did an online shop and had it delivered right to the door of the lodge with was perfect. Kevin on site is very kind and will visit you to say hi and give you his number for wood deliveries for the log burner. The owner is very helpful and replied to my few queries with haste. Overall, amazing weekend, very comfortable, very relaxing and would 100% book this lodge for our next weekend away. Thank you to all that helped me organise it and then helped us enjoy it. "

The weather was so hot so would recommend a few pedestal fans left in the cupboard as it became stifling in the lodge day and night which probably magnified the problem with the drains smelling as bad as it did but the lodge itself was really nice also really good location in close proximity to the safari park lake windamere and grange over sands enjoyed the experience and would recommend the lodge"

    "The weather was so hot so would recommend a few pedestal fans left in the cupboard as it became stifling in the lodge day and night which probably magnified the problem with the drains smelling as bad as it did but the lodge itself was really nice also really good location in close proximity to the safari park lake windamere and grange over sands enjoyed the experience and would recommend the lodge"
    - Mrs Crook, August 2018
    "The bathroom fittings need re-fixing properly to the walls eg: toilet roll holder was completely off. The BBQ had been left absolutely filthy by whoever had last used it so we were unable to use that at all. The cost was not inexpensive, we paid just under £1,000 for 4 nights so I think that although nothing major these are things that definitely need to be looked at and that the BBQ should have been cleaned before we arrived as was the lodge itself. Thank you"
    - Mrs Sloan, August 2018
    "Bbq absolutely filthy so never used which was a shame and toilet roll holder broke but apart from this great.just needs a little tlc but overall fantastic"

    "The lodge itself is beautiful and actually much bigger than it looks on the photos. ..."
    - Mr Blakelock, March 2019
    "Hot tub was great as it was private with easy access. Beds and pillows were a little uncomfortable but not the end of the world. Overall really great stay in a lodge walkable distance from the town and close driving distance to the lakes."
    - KH2691, February 2019
    "We stayed here for 2 nights recently and couldn't believe the high standard of the cabin. Hot tub was so clean and very private. Whole place was lovely and clean and the cabin is totally worth the money we paid. The owners thought of everything and so much was included. Would definitely stay again."
    - Miss Foulds, January 2019
    "Booked as a surprise for my partner for his birthday and he was extremely pleasantly surprised. Hot tub was spacious, clean and a perfect place to sit on a chilly night and star gaze. With no light pollution, we had never seen so many and it made for a perfect evening, or two! Kitchen had 99% of things needed to make any meal and what it didn’t have you could get by with so no drama cooking big scrumptious meals instead of eating out. And the dish washer made the experience a pleasure ..."
    - Mr Mckean, December 2018
    "It was quiet and peaceful and just what we were looking for for our Christmas get away this year. Directions were perfect and easy to follow. Hot tub was a great extra, even in the middle of December. The whole process from booking to arrival was easy and Steve (owner) was easy to contact and helpful. Thanks for a great stay!"
    - Miss Fowle, January 2019
    "We had such a lovely stay and could not fault this lodge at all, in fact, it went beyond our expectations. We have immediately recommended it to friends and family and will continue to do so."

    - Mrs Gibson, January 2020
    "Hot tub naturally was a favourite of the whole party. Spacious rooms, very good heating system, important in winter."
    - Mr Corbett, January 2020
    "..... me and my partner loved every moment from the hot tub to our boat trip on lake windermere .... our dog enjoyed it also ....she's quite old and enjoyed the walks and quietness ......thanks for a lovely break .... see you in the summer"
    - Mrs Regan, February 2020
    "Lodge was spacious and comfortable and hot tub was great. Just a couple of improvements based on previous experiences in places like this. Mainly those extra touches for example there was no hand soap provided, no little things like salt and pepper/ oil etc No welcome bottle of wine. So you do have to bring everything you can think of whereas other places these are provided. Hot tub lights broken and no shelter meaning on the day/night of the storm we couldn’t use it. Would be perfect on a ..."
    - Mr Corr, March 2020
    "It was beautiful, clean and very spacious. Watching the wildlife walk by (deer) just yards away from us was a great experience."
    - Mrs Thrupp, September 2020
    "Examples include damaged bathroom sink, dishwasher and hot tub lid holder. The DVD buzzed annoyingly.Some of the kitchen equipment is in a poor state, particularly the pans. We found it bizarre that there was a washing machine but no airer. Towels were small and thin. There were no hot tub towels or dressing gowns. We wondered whether the owner has ever lived in the lodge. For example there were no hooks to hang towels and no electricity point near a mirror so drying/curling hair was very ..."
    - Mr Marshall, October 2020
    "Accommodation spacious and clean and had everything you needed , beds extremely comfortable hot tub checked every day , we noticed we had a wasps nest outside near hot tub on arrival so called the owner and he got it sorted next morning"
    - Mrs Docherty, October 2020
    "Our third stay in this wonderful lodge. It is well equipped with everything you would need. The hot tub checked every day by the park warden. The owner is very helpful and responds quickly."
    - Mr Foster, May 2021
    "“to nit pick we did have trouble trying to get the dishwasher to start but with a bit of patience it did its job.”"
    - Gemma, August 2021
    ". the lodge needs a lot of TLC. The bbq was filthy. The on suite toilet leaked the blinds were broken.. the WiFi didn’t work at all.. the best part was the hot tub and was checked every morning.. overall my kids had a great week which is all that matters… think the owners need to have a word with the cleaners.."

    "The lodge is beautiful and really homely, there are just a couple of things I would point out. The dishwasher was full of scum and hair when we arrived so we had to clean this out also the decking out the back of the lodge was dangerously slippy we had to hose and brush this town as there was a few near misses, nothing a good pressure wash won't solve. I would with out a doubt return to this lodge. I would have given 5 if it wasn't for those 2 little things :)"

The lodge was fully equipped with everything you will need for any family and couple and then finished off with a log Stove and Hot Tub . Added perks all over the lodge and surrounding area. Cartmel village was only 20 minutes walk away and this was the perfect Lake District village and with Windermere only 20 minutes drive away you couldn't have picked a perfect location . Booked another week within 3 hours of being in the lodge so good luck trying to book this Lodge up as it seems everyone who goes books again for the following year.” "

    " “Just back from a lovely week at this lodge. Lodge is very modern and well equipped with the added bonus of a hot tub on the veranda. The beds were really comfortable and made up for your arrival. Towels were also included. A very quiet site in an ideal location to explore the lake district and Morecambe coast area. It is on the Meadows End area of The Pastures lodge park close to Cartmel. There are about 10 lodges in this bit of the park which are mostly part of the Hoseasons Autograph collection. This lodge is privately owned. It has the added bonus of excellent wifi which is great because the mobile signal is poor. Great lodge would recommend it.” "
