    “When I booked the Lodge, significant contributing factors to my booking was a Log Burner and a Barbeque.”

    Importantly - knowing fuel was availabile for the log burner. After all, it is pretty obvious that almost all, if not all, tenants of the Lodge are visiting the Lake District from afar - and how are they supposed to know where to acquire logs from? ...

    Importantly - knowing fuel was availabile for the log burner. After all, it is pretty obvious that almost all, if not all, tenants of the Lodge are visiting the Lake District from afar - and how are they supposed to know where to acquire logs from? At the time of booking the description stated that there was a "log burner and oil fired central heating - fuel included" and I reasonably believed there would be logs available. When I arrived at the Lodge we discovered that there was no logs and the barbeque was a complete rust heap and without doubt an unusable health hazard - ergo there was no barbeque. There was a note in the welcome pack that logs could be ordered from the local farmer who would deliver them - cost £5 for a 'large bag'. We eMailed and order but no logs were forthcoming. Both this and the barbeque placed a very negative impression on what would otherwise have been considered a nice comfortable cottage. I raised these issue with "Heart of the Lakes" and their response was to remove the barbeque from the listing details and to add a line which stated logs were not included. This to my mind is a completely inappropriate approach and I will be complaining directly to them about this action. I terms of a comment for the owner - I find it hard to believe that for the miserly cost of £5 these would not be included in the tenancy - even if there was a note that said there was one bag included, tenants will need to pay for additional logs if required. You could even raise the price by that £5 a week if the cost is too much to consider - and it wouldn't stop people being interested in booking.

    Dear Philip, thank you for your review, we take these seriously. We have amended the description to clarify the log situation at the property. We are going to look into as to why you were unable to obtain logs. We very much hope you were able to enjoy the rest of the facilities and the house. Property Owner


The property

This single storey detached lodge sits in its own large garden surrounded by open countryside just outside the delightful town of Bowness-on-Windermere, in the heart of the Lake District. Originally a coach house to the bigger property, Upper Lodge is a fabulous retreat with family or friends, boasting character touches in combination with functional, modern features. Look forward to unwinding in the delightful sitting room, complete with a lovely sofa where you sit back and listen to the crackle of the woodburner, or pick out a book from the shelf and lose yourself in a good read. Meander past the bedrooms to find the kitchen/diner, home to all the essentials for a self-catered break, including an electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge, freezer, plus there is a utility room with washing machine and tumble dryer, so you have everything you could need! Retire to either of the three bedrooms each light and pretty, including two king-size doubles and a twin, each decorated in a country style with sash windows and lovely furniture. Choose between the shower room or the bathroom to prepare for the day, before enjoying a light breakfast within the lawned garden. When you’re ready to explore, the quaint town of Bowness is home to an abundance of quirky stores, charming pubs and well-established restaurants, as well as a bustling marina and the popular World of Beatrix Potter Attraction. Both Blackwell, the Arts and Crafts House Museum and the Windermere Jetty - the Steamboat Museum are minutes away. See the cascading waters of Stock Ghyll Force over in Ambleside, or step back in time at the historic remains of Ambleside Roman Fort. Hop on board the iconic Windermere steamer and enjoy a relaxing cruise across the lake, explore the wonders of Rydal Cave, or visit the nearby town of Kendal for some great family attractions. There’s plenty to do from this superb Lake District home.

Brockhole, which offers high wire tree top experiences, is less than two miles away, and the historic villages of Grasmere, Ambleside and Troutbeck are a short drive away. There are also a variety of watersports on offer for the more energetic at marine centres along the lake.
