Not quite as tranquil as expected

  • 3 of 5

This was a much needed stopover/short stay after a holiday in Scotland, so we were pleased to find the lodge to be not too far from the motorway. It was also very useful in that it is reasonably close to Blackpool where we visited family. It is fairly close to the south of the Lake District, but we had already done a lot of driving, so weren't able to take advantage of this.

The lodge was clean and tidy upon arrival and was plenty big enough for us as three adults with two dogs, but there were a few minor glitches to our stay which I have only just informed the owner of - I don't doubt he will sort out anything needing doing as he was a very friendly and helpful person to book with.

However, I do feel that the Leisure Park and surrounding area isn't quite as mentioned - the motorway junction may indeed be a mile away (plenty far enough for noise from there not to be an issue); however, the park is located on a very busy main road and the lodge is just a stones-throw from it, meaning that traffic noise is noticeable day and night - as is the noise from the railway running just the other side of the road. We had just come from staying somewhere very quiet, so the noises were extremely noticeable to us, however if you're already familiar with that sort of thing then I'm sure it wouldn't be a problem.

The Leisure Park that the lodge is on is open to the general public, so there's a lot of to-ing and fro-ing of cars from the car park just beyond the lodge, and there's also major works going on creating more lodges in the park so we had a stay where tractors and diggers were moving around from around 8am until late, every few minutes. So, all in all, not as tranquil and quiet a retreat as we were anticipating.

The food from the Leisure facilities was generally very good and the staff there were helpful. The park itself is clean and well maintained and the lake and its birdlife is beautiful.

I would stay at the park and this lodge again, and I'd recommend it, however I do think visitors need to know exactly what they are booking.

Arnside 2, South Lakes Leisure Village

  • 5 of 5

Lodge was perfectly located in the village across from the Leisure Facilities and Restaurant with lovely view over the lake. We used the Leisure Facilities everyday. Accommodation was comfortable, clean and cosy. Children loved it. Milk and biscuits in the fridge on arrival - really thoughtful.-thanks. Lodge ideally suited for visits and walks to beautiful surrounding countryside including Arnside and not too far from the Lake District. Supermarkets only 5 minutes away in Carnforth. Excellent customer service from the Owner and the Leisure Village. We would recommend to friends and family and I am sure we will be back- later this year hopefully. Thanks for a wonderful holiday!

What a Lovely Break

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at this Lodge and as a family of 4 with 2 boys aged 11 and 13 it was perfect.

The Lodge is well placed for visiting not only things in and around the Lakes but also Blackpool.

The Lodge itself is well maintained, clean and perfect for a family of 4.

We had use of the pool (and spa) which is a great bonus especially on those wet days!

The boys were free to go around on their bikes as the setting is really safe which is nice for us adults...

John the owner was great to deal with, very helpful and what was really useful was there was not an early departure time, which can always put such a dampener on your last day.

We will most definatley return to this Lodge and look forward to dealing with John again.

Thank you for a great Oct half term.

South Lakeland Leisure village is ideally situated in an area of outstanding natural beauty on the edge of the Lake District National Park. The Leisure Village is being developed with conservation very much to the fore. The Lake within the village has already attracted varied wildlife.

Leighton Moss, an RSPB Nature reserve is just 10 minutes away. The historic city of Lancaster and many attractions of Morecambe Bay are nearby and the Yorkshire Dales are also within easy reach.

Fishing and non-motorised water sports are available on the Lake. Discounts have been negotiated for guests of the lodge for Water ski-ing on the adjoining lake which is within easy walking distance.

'Pure Leisure' Leisure centre, including swimming pool, steam room, recently extended gym and beauty treatment rooms is situated within the Leisure Village. Sorry but I can no longer include entrance to the Leisure Centre in my rates.
