Lovely wooden lodge with private gardens and access to leisure facilities which include swimming pool and games room.

Set in 2.5 acres of beautiful natural grounds and woodland, this charming wooden holiday lodge has its own private garden and shared use of an indoor heated plunge pool, sauna, Jacuzzi and table tennis. Right on the doorstep of the magnificent Langdales, with Ambleside, 2.5 miles and Coniston, 8 miles. It is a perfect base for touring and exploring the footpaths in the area with numerous woodland and hill walks straight from the door. The Lake District Visitor Centre near Windermere is worth a visit, as is the Beatrix Potter Exhibition at Bowness. Great for wildlife lovers, with deer and other animals freely wandering through this small, select woodland retreat. Pub and restaurant 0.5 miles.

    We had a lovely time tucked away in the woods. Found it easily and was only a short drive from the nearest town. The heated pool could have been a bit warmer but other than that everything was great.

    Elterwater lodge was everything we were looking for Unfortunately we had to cut short our break after just one night as our daughter came down with glandular fever and was really poorly and had to be admitted to hospital Can't wait to return to do the things we had planned

    We were very happy with our stay. Great Location. Great walk from Elterwater over the hill to Grasmere and Cycled in Grizedale forest. Supermarket shopping in Ambleside limited but Booths in Windermere is only 4 miles further and that is more than adequate. Our Kids aged 12 and 10 enjoyed the small swimming pool and table tennis at the leisure centre which is right next door to the accommodation. A great stay especially as the Easter weather was kind to us

    OK- location is great but very small and badly laid out lodge. this is listed as a 2 bed for up to 4 people and can accommodate a dog- but we were only a party of 2 and a dog and struggled with space. no area to prepare food or store your things. it also situated adjacent to the site recycling bins -so be prepared to here the wine bottles being emptied every morning. we have stayed at this site before in nicer lodges.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner: We are sorry that you were a little disappointed by your stay. We would encourage guests to ensure they have read the property description, where it highlights that it is intended for 2 adults and 2 children, due to the small size of the bunk room. There are a small number of different design lodges on the site. Many are identical to ours, and there are some larger, most likely more expensive properties for parties that need or prefer more space. Our lodge is one of the closest lodges to the communal facilities, and most people find this beneficial in terms of easily accessing the pool, sauna, table tennis and laundry room. We regularly stay at the property ourselves, and have not been disturbed by occasional recycling activity. However, we are sorry this was a problem for you and we will ask the site manager to monitor the situation and if appropriate, see if anything can be done.
