Respond to Lake District Self Catering

    Michelle and Tracy of Lakeland Retreats are passionate about their customer service and, from booking until after we had left, could not have been more helpful in making our stay a memorable one.
    This was our second stay at Riverside Lodge which has a wonderful setting on the edge of Ambleside. The property has a relaxing garden on the banks of the River Rothay.
    The Lodge itself possesses spacious accommodation for 6 people. The kitchen is extremely well equipped with a more than ample amount of crockery, glassware, cutlery and cooking equipment.
    The ground floor’s generous sized room for wet gear, is a more than useful addition given the Lake District climate!!
    The real icing on the cake is the full sized snooker/Pool table in the Games room; on first seeing it our 9 year old nephew thought all his Christmas’s had come at once and it certainly provided many hours of family competition. The Games room’s integral snug area, with its log fired stove, means that ‘spectators’ can relax and watch the fun!!
    Riverside Lodge is a great family/friends retreat both within easy walking distance of the town and you can set off for lovely walks straight from the Lodge’s door – we will definitely be returning.

    Long weekend stay at Middlebeck Cottage in Ambleside on October 2019. Michelle at Lakeland Retreats was so friendly and helpful, both before our visit and on arrival. Perfect, peaceful spot but only 10 minutes to Ambleside. The cottage had everything we needed and log burner was very welcome. Thanks also for the welcome hamper. Would definitely recommend and hope to return soon. Thanks so much
