We are Jim and Julie the owners of the property, we are both originally from this area though have travelled quite a bit during our working careers. We purchased the property last June and are now offering the property for rental directly with ourselves. Both of us are retired and spend our time, with our cat Mr. Darcy, between living at a different lodge on the site and a property we own in Spain. It is therefore difficult to give a single point of contact by phone so we feel that it is best and cheapest for all parties to contact initially through e mail. We will always be contactable for any questions/queries you may have.
Very nice lodge only point is mobile reception and had to go to the bar for internet access and was not always available there. Would love to come back when the weather is better and longer evenings so we can use the outside space.
Thanks very much.
Owners note:- We now have wifi in the lodge for our guests to use and this is free of charge and unlimited. You could also use your phone with whats app or any of the other internet apps now. My phone reception is always fine so it probably depends on the network you use, mine is O2.
We had a lovely family holiday for a few days in carnforth, could not fault the site and the cabin, very clean spacious and modern with excellent facilities. The owners were very friendly and informative. The site is ideal for touring the lakes , would definitely recommend to family and friends and would definitely revisit .
Coming from France with our two boys it was worth the trip. Julie and Jim are really nice hosts and very helpful. They gave us a lot of precious information about the area, places to visit and pubs. The lodge is very comfortable and it is a very good location to visit Lake District, Cumbria and Yorkshire dales. Only 3 nigths stay, we will surely come back for longer holidays.
I booked the lodge for Duncans 70th birthday and we loved the lodge and the restaurant. The lodge was very well equipped and had everything we needed, the site was very well laid out and well cared for. We booked the restaurant for a surprise birthday celebration for about 20 of Duncans family and we had a wonderful time. The restaurant food was really good and the staff were very helpful. Duncan did some fishing but never caught anything, maybe next time because we would love to come back. Thanks to Julie and Jim for a wonderful holiday, and I have already recommended you to some of our friends.
Enjoyable stay at South Lakes Village, impressed with park facilities, pool, restaurant etc. Lodge was clean, well equipped, and well furnished, would definitely stay again. Lovely location on park and nice to see rabbits and ducks outside each morning.
