My partner and I have just returned from a 3 night break here & we couldn't fault the place! The lodge we stayed in (the Hard Knott) was beautiful. It was my partner's birthday and the staff had decorated our lodge with banners and balloons and even left us a bottle of Prosecco and chocs which was a fabulous surprise!...

Beautiful location with great facilities in the cabin. Hot tub made the trip. Friendly staff always at hand with issues. Only issue was the distance to the nearest shop for food. Pubs close by and lots of walks to be done. Defo return
