I recently moved back to Cumbria after spending 8 years in the South of France where I set up and ran a property business. Before moving to France I was owner of a graphic design studio and worked for many national and international clients. Ex-rugby player and keen on all sports including skiing, mountain biking, rowing, walking I love the great outdoors so am lucky to have rental properties in both the south of France and the Lake District. We hope you enjoy them as much as we do!
Tony Mole purchased this cabin in 2012
I fell in love with the lodge as soon as I walked through the door - the spacious open plan living area, modern contemporary feel and large sunny deck with great views. Adding the hot tub has added a new dimension and is proving very popular !
Hot tub, high quality French sofas, stylish furnishings and fittings, fabulous location in the heart of the beautiful Lake District close to all major sights and points of interest.
Myself and my girlfriend have just returned from a fantastic break, we are missing the cabin already. This ultra modern cabin comes decked out with all the mod cons that will ever be needed. It was spotlessly clean and immaculate throughout, it is decorated to a very high standard. The master bedroom come with an en-suite bathroom and walk in wardrobe. And the kids room is more than ample for two. The kitchen has a built in fridge/ freezer and also comes with a dish washer.
The couch and chairs are very comfy and perfect for relaxing in after a long walk. The hot tub is just excellent and is ideal for a relaxing time, it sheltered from all the other cabins for privacy. This was a big plus for me as I really enjoyed the down time. The owner Tony, was really easy to deal with. I would advise anybody looking for Log cabin in the Lake District to consider the Bowness Lodge as I found it to be absolutely stunning and perfect for myself and my partner. We will definitely be returning and we will be recommending this cabin to all our friends. I really cant say enough about this cabin, it even comes with games for all the kids. A truly excellent log cabin. a joy of a break.
Location and camp is lovely.......the lodge isn't the cleanest would benefit from new beds bedding and sofa I found these not very nice......shame realy if it was given the attention it deserved it would be lovely.......everything is very old worn an tired I have stayed in much nicer for cheaper !!!
Sorry it's taken so long to write a review I thought I had done it ,we had a mid week break my first impressions was WOW, we entered the cabin which was beautifully clean and tidy excellent welcome pack coffee tea biscuits , the hot tub was fab to get into after going out walking for hours , we didn't want to leave so peaceful we live in Somerset and thought our scenery was lovely but it doesn't compare to the Lake District . Will be looking at coming back this year I hope .
The lodge was lovely!! Well decorated, comfortable, homely, inviting & in a stunning area of tranquility which was far enough from the tourist spots to feel secluded but close enough for convenience. Tony was extremely kind in allowing us to stay on different days than normally scheduled as it was a special occasion and we were very grateful for his generousity in doing so. After the expectations of the lodge and location exceeded our expectations we wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to friends and family for a holiday and have already done so since returning. We didn't get to use the hot tub as often as hoped but after a 20 minute minute soak I was glad we had it available. The locals are friendly and quite honestly we would have been happy if we spent all of our time in the lodge as it was so nice to be away from London and just hear the sheep and birds instead of cars and traffic! Thank you Tony, we will certainly consider coming again.
Limefitt park is in a brilliant location between windermere and ambleside for exploring the lakes! The lodge is very cosy, felt perfectly at home! Clean and tidy on arrival and has everything you need pots and pans etc. Hot tub is absolutely superb! We took our 4 month old son and we found it to be fantastic for a little family holiday! Great communication with Tony the owner. Hoping to come again later in the year!
My mum and i had such a lovely time. The chalet was very well kitted out and comfortable. Amazing setting, beautiful scenery and we were so lucky with the weather. It was great we could take our dog, who also had a lovely time I can't recommend it highly enough, and Tony was so accommodating, as we had to cancel last minute last year due to personal unforeseen circumstances. He is a true gentleman
Limefitt Park is easily accessible from the North or South via the M6 motorway. A car is essential to explore this spectacular area although there is public transport throughout the Lake District.
Award winiing Limefitt Park is well situated to explore the magnificent Lake District National Park with its large variety of places of interest. Windermere and Ambleside are both 3 miles away, lively towns with great pubs, restaurants and shops. Limefitt is in the heart of superb walking country so don't forget to bring your boots !
Although a secluded, tranquil setting, Limefitt Park is close to every facility and convenience. Banks, petrol, supermarkets, shops, pubs, restaurants etc are all within a short (and very scenic !) drive. All outdoor activities are available nearby, mountain biking, sailing, canoeing, pony trekking etc. Limefitt Park is very close to several excellent pubs serving great food and award-winning local beers. Limefitt Lodge, our 3 bed lodge is located next door making the two ideal for large groups or special family occasions.
