lovely stay once again at rowans lodge nice quiet site and weather was great so was the lodge Oscar the dog was very well catered for .hope to be back again soon.
The lodge was very comfortable and the staff had kindly switched the heating and fridge on for us. The staff in the office/shop were very friendly and helpful. I used the laundry facilities once and was very happy with them. I liked the presence of the children's play area.
Although we have several holidays per year and have travelled significantly with work, this is the first time we've been compelled to write on trip advisor.
We visited week of 17th October 2016
Initially, booking was simple and we had emails prior to the trip indicating what is provided at the Lodge and suggestions for what we may want to bring as well as clear directions to the site.
Location of the park is ideal as a hub for getting to Lake District, coast and Carlisle.
On arrival at the lodge we were greated with a dog basket containing bowls, blankets, poo bags and treats, a great touch that our two dogs were over the moon with.
The accommodation itself was spacious and homely. Excellent central heating meant the Lodge was already warm on our arrival. Layout of the Lodge is perfect with everything clean and in its place.
A nice touch of washing up liquid, tea towels, disinfectant spray and dishwasher tablets meant that we didn't have to rush out to get any of these items, even though there is a small stocked shop on site.
The site itself was calm and peaceful, which is exactly what we were after. Great views from the top of the hill in the dog walking area.
All in all, a great place to call home for a trip to the lakes with many great walks nearby.
We genuinely couldn't find any faults with the Lodge or the park.
Would definitely return.
Absolutely brilliant place to stay great lodge fantastic views pet friendly had a brilliant stay. Would stat again hopefully next year.
