“Excellent base to explore the Lakes”
Reviewed 4 December 2015 for a stay in September 2015

My family and I stayed at the Lookout Lodge back in September, and thoroughly enjoyed it. The location is excellent; very close to Bowness town, but far enough away to not be part of the everyday bustle with swarms of other tourists. The walk to the town is steep whichever way you go, so be aware!

The lodge itself is spacious and well furnished. 5 of us stayed, and we were never in eachothers' way. The kitchen and living room were plenty big enough, and the balcony/patio is a lovely place to sit if the weather is nice.

WiFi does drop out fairly regularly unfortunately. Also had random gardeners turn up and start cutting the grass, without knocking, which was a tad odd.

That said, we would stay again, and would recommend.

The owners were very helpful and informative when contacted by phone or email, and the information package sent to us before arrival contained many useful tips on the local amenities and attractions. Everything that we needed was provided, and WiFi at the property was an unexpected bonus. Weather permitting, the large balcony is perfect for al fresco dining, or sipping a glass of wine in the evening sunshine whilst enjoying the view. A gate in the back garden provided a useful shortcut to the lively centre of Bowness and the lake.
I would hope to return here when we next visit the Lake District.
