About Sarah Tillotson

We are a couple who live in Marsden, Near Huddersfield, West Yorkshire. We have 3 children 17, 13 and 4 years old. It is lovely to all get some quiet time together and enjoy the area. We have very busy lives so the lodge is just the perfect getaway.

Sarah Tillotson purchased this villa in 2011

Why Sarah Tillotson chose Penrith, East Lakes & Eden Valley

We went to look at the land in January 2011 and didn't know what to expect but we just fell in love with it. The lodge was completed in autumn 2011 and we spent Christmas and new year there with our children, parents and other family members staying in near by lodges it was wonderful. It is the perfect location for some quiet and peaceful time. You are only 4 miles from Greystoke village with a lovely pub and local shop and only 10 mins drive from centre of Penrith and 20-25 mins away from Keswick giving you the perfect location for your perfect holiday.

What makes this villa unique

Whilst staying at Pond View Lodge you can enjoy various activity's such as walking through Greystoke forest or cycling enjoying the wonderful scenery. The lodge is only 4 miles from the nearest village with a lovely village pub and shop/post office. Penrith is 10 minutes and Keswick only 20-25 minutes away by car. You will find all what you would require for the perfect holiday in these towns including leisure facilities which in Keswick the swimming baths has a great slide for you and the kids. Whilst enjoying all of this you could just sit and relax on the decking overlooking the lovely dukes pond.

The property was exactly as described, great location (red squirrels at your door), very well equipped, exceptionally clean and comfortable. Perfect for us (a family of four). We hope to return soon and wouldn't hesitate to recommend this property.

Lovely getaway in the Lakes District

  • 5 of 5

This is a nicely decorated, well fitted out lodge within a group of lodges on a private road tucked away in a quiet rural spot. We visited in August and hardly saw or heard anyone else staying in nearby lodges.

We travelled with three children under 5 and had a great week here. Cot, bedding, highchair all provided. The addition of a few plastic plates / cups / cutlery for the children would be a good idea.

There's a decked area off the main living space which is fenced and secure where the children could play. Plus a grassed area accessed via a gate from the decking.

Would definitely recommend, a really good find.

Everything we could have asked for!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, 5 year old son and I all headed to the lakes for a nice relaxing break before the arrival of our next child and the lodge did not disappoint. It was peaceful, luxurious and relaxing. The outdoor space was perfect for our son who loved greeting the red squirrels every morning. Couldn't fault the location or the lodge in any way - fantastic!!
