Guest access
You have access to the whole lodge and please note the lodge is ran as a holiday let and therefore my not have some items that you would expect from other Airbnb hosts. I do not supply items such as washing power for the machine, and kitchen sundries such as coffee, spices, salt and pepper etc. There will be cleaning products, washing up liquid, toilet rolls and a bin (trash) bag. If you are staying for more than a weekend / 3 night then I recommend you bring extra to cover your stay.

The beds are made up as a 2 single and 1 double with a double duvet. If you are sharing the double bed and require it to be made with 2 singles duvets (which is popular in Europe) then please let me know 10 days before your stay.

Please read the notes within the guest access section on the items I provide.

Please note that the mobile phone and WiFi signal may be intermittent. You are in the Lakes and you should come to relax. If you want to stream video or music then I would look for another pleas. The current wifi is slow and it only good for checking emails.

Windermere, England, United Kingdom

There is tons of activities to keep you busy during your stay from walking around the lakes, visiting Brockhole Visitor Centre, which is a 1/2 mile walk from the lodge. You can explore the gardens and the adventure playground; play mini golf; or embark on lake-based activities such as kayaking, rowing or walking on water inside a giant inflatable ball. There is also a new aerial woodland adventure Treetop Trek and a wildlife experience at Predator Park.

Is walking is not your thing then take a cruise with Windermere Lake Cruises. Enjoy a relaxing cruise on a Windermere Steamer for views of dramatic mountain scenery, sheltered bays, and lush, wooded islands. Create a whole day out by combining a trip on the lake with a stop off at one of the lakeside attractions, such as the Lakeland Motor Museum or the award-winning Lakes Aquarium – or head out in the evening for a romantic sunset cruise.
