    “We were delighted with our stay in Upper Lodge.”

    The location and rooms were just as described in the Sykes listing. Beautiful quiet location with lovely gardens. The location was a perfect base for us to explore the Lake District. We visited in May but would be an ideal base at any time of the year, the lodge has heating and a separate boot / utility room. Thank you for allowing us to stay in your amazing lodge and would certainly like to come back at some point. Would happily recommend this lodge to friends and family. We visited ...

We visited in May but would be an ideal base at any time of the year, the lodge has heating and a separate boot / utility room. Thank you for allowing us to stay in your amazing lodge and would certainly like to come back at some point. Would happily recommend this lodge to friends and family. We visited many locations from the lodge including: Ullswater via Kirkstone pass, Coniston water, Ambleside, Grassmere, Kendal, Grizedale Forest, Hawkshead and Keswick. We also took the yellow cruise from Windermere and steam train up to Haverthwaite which was an amazing day out.

The property

This single storey detached lodge sits in its own large garden surrounded by open countryside just outside the delightful town of Bowness-on-Windermere, in the heart of the Lake District. Originally a coach house to the bigger property, Upper Lodge is a fabulous retreat with family or friends, boasting character touches in combination with functional, modern features. Look forward to unwinding in the delightful sitting room, complete with a lovely sofa where you sit back and listen to the crackle of the woodburner, or pick out a book from the shelf and lose yourself in a good read. Meander past the bedrooms to find the kitchen/diner, home to all the essentials for a self-catered break, including an electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge, freezer, plus there is a utility room with washing machine and tumble dryer, so you have everything you could need! Retire to either of the three bedrooms each light and pretty, including two king-size doubles and a twin, each decorated in a country style with sash windows and lovely furniture. Choose between the shower room or the bathroom to prepare for the day, before enjoying a light breakfast within the lawned garden. When you’re ready to explore, the quaint town of Bowness is home to an abundance of quirky stores, charming pubs and well-established restaurants, as well as a bustling marina and the popular World of Beatrix Potter Attraction. Both Blackwell, the Arts and Crafts House Museum and the Windermere Jetty - the Steamboat Museum are minutes away. See the cascading waters of Stock Ghyll Force over in Ambleside, or step back in time at the historic remains of Ambleside Roman Fort. Hop on board the iconic Windermere steamer and enjoy a relaxing cruise across the lake, explore the wonders of Rydal Cave, or visit the nearby town of Kendal for some great family attractions. There’s plenty to do from this superb Lake District home.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £200.

Brockhole, which offers high wire tree top experiences, is three miles away, and the historic villages of Grasmere, Ambleside and Troutbeck are a short drive away. There is also a variety of watersports on offer for the more energetic at marine centres along the lake.
