“Beautiful lodge you won't want to leave”
Reviewed 25 December 2015 for a stay in December 2015
person found this review helpful

Only 1 week after the devastating floods that hit Cumbria, we were booked to stay for a long weekend at Pippin Lodge. Apart from a few poor souls on the A590 this area appeared relatively unscathed. On Arrival we were greeted by a spacious, well equipped, centrally heated lodge and the log burner was a real treat. We soon learnt you need to turn the radiator thermostat's right down when you light the burner and only burn one log at a time or by 9.30 the heat is unbearable . Also keep the bedroom door closed until you go to bed to keep the heat out. The lodge is only a few months old so it's spotless . The owners live in a larger lodge opposite that's only been on site since November so further landscaping is due once weather permits.
Arriving on Friday we only had time for a short walk with the dogs before dark, then it was time to light the burner and crack open a bottle of wine. Once you have used your starter pack additional logs are available for a small fee.
Saturday rained nearly all day , a short trip to the well stocked Booths supermarket at ulveston followed by a look around the small village of cartmell,with its quaint shops it's well worth a visit,then back to the lodge to crack open a bottle of wine.
Sunday we woke to a lovely hard frost, a brisk early morning walk with the dogs with snow topped fells in the distance, beautiful. Another walk along the promenade at Grange over Sands with views over the bay and away from traffic it's great for dogs & young children. After lunch we visited wax lyrical ,if scented candles & diffusers are your thing it's well worth a visit. Drove on the Barrow, by then the rain had returned & the draw of the log burner & a bottle of wine was proving to strong.
Monday morning arrived to soon, we'd had a wonderful relaxing weekend( the wine may have helped). We would like to wish Kevin & Kath good luck with their new venture although I doubt they'll need it as I cannot see anyone being disappointed with this lodge. We have just booked another lodge near Conniston for Easter week, had Pippin not already been booked we would have been back there. There's always next year!
A quick visit to the well stocked farm shop at Low Sizergh on the way home.

Thank you for taking the time to share this lovely and comprehensive review, we are so pleased that you had a great break at Pippin Lodge! We are so happy to hear that the rain didn't stop you from exploring the area, but we'd agree that that kind of weather calls for a bottle of wine and getting cosy by the log burner! We certainly hope that you come back and visit us again very soon!
