Lovely setting with walks from the door

A lovely new build that blends in well with the fantastic Lake District countryside.

The stay was very good value for money. However, not everything was tip top. For a family room, there was not much room to put stuff - what do you do with 8 towels when there's only a tiny radiator in the bathroom (which faintly smelled of wee)?; we ran out of loo roll and the room was only serviced one day out of the two. A lunch menu was advertised, but not available. We were sent to the neighbouring pub (owned by the same company) but they weren't cooking either, so ended up at a third place for lunch (owned by the same company again and with a 10% discount).Breakfast was a slight shambles around the toaster and not enough places always laid up at the tables. One other thing, the photos make the photo appear that it's a rural retreat, when in fact it's right off the main A road with quite a bit of noisy traffic.

scandanvian simplicity ...

The Lodge is very similar to a Premier Inn in layout and style (though PIs often have a bath and this doesn't).

Clean with no frills but at £100 a night, a reasonable price for the Lake District. The breakfast is continental (ham, cold boiled eggs, cereal, yogurt bread) and adequate. There appear to be no staff on duty after 9.30 pm. If you're looking for luxury, this isn't the place but the rooms are plain and inoffensive and it is clean and good value for the Lakes if you are just looking for b&b.
