My wife and I bought our 14 month old son away for his first holiday & have had a wonderful time.
We had horrendous wind and rain for the first 2 days,
but the lodge was big enough & lovely enough for us to hardly notice we were house bound.
Once the weather passed and we were able to venture out,
we found we were very central to everywhere we wanted to visit.
We have had a great holiday and will definitely be recommending this place to friends and family.
Thank you for a great first family holiday.

This isn’t our first time in the lakes but first time at Limefitt and we had a lovely time.
Beds and showers are lovely and the lodge is nice and comfy.
Good location, easy access to different areas of the lakes.
It did rain at times but if you are prepared it doesn’t put you off, this is a lovely area of England.
We are hoping to come back here to stay next year.


23rd-27th July
We have had a fantastic few days here.
The children loved having a paddle/swim in the river pool despite the cold.
We saw a glimpse of a badger one evening on the way back to the lodge.
The lodge has been perfect – warm & clean to come back to. 
Wonderful views form the living room, comfortable beds & great shower.
We hope to be back.


20th-23rd July
We have all had a lovely, relaxing weekend. Perfect, homely lodge with everything catered for.
Enjoyed a great walk up Wansfell Pike, beautiful view at the top, well worth the climb!
Altogether a beautiful lodge, great position for walks and nearby towns.


13th-20th July
We had enjoyed our stay at Fellside Lodge very much!
The lodge was like a home from home.
We loved badger watching every night.
We saw deer and a squirrel came onto the balcony for breakfast one morning.
 The weather has been quite kind and we have enjoyed walks and done everything we intended to do.
We will definitely be visiting again.


1st-7th July
Despite quite a bit of rain we have all had a fantastic holiday.
The lodge was very cosy and well equipped.
Excellent location and views.
We walked  around Buttermere and also to Easedale Tarn from Grasmere
We would certainly like to return.


25th-29th June
This was our first time we’ve stayed in this area of the lakes and we were not disappointed.
The lodge was a very pleasant surprise, couldn’t have wished for more,
comfortable, clean, homely and very well equipped.
Bash and Donna have been extremely helpful with any queries we have had and found booking very easy.
We were unlucky with the weather so couldn’t do the walking we had planned,
but it made us visit places we otherwise wouldn’t.
We look forwarding to returning again.


22nd-25th June
We have had a lovely stay in a beautiful lodge !
We came to take part in the great North Swim, which was sadly cancelled.
It didn’t ruin our weekend though.
The lodge is beautiful, clean, in a wonderful setting and was far better than we expected.
Thank you very much.


08-15th June 2012
This was our first visit to the lakes and so we need a cosy base that would be suitable for a couple with a young baby.
Limefitt was recommended by a friend.
We found Fellside Lodge on the internet and upon our arrival we were very pleased with it indeed.
It had everything we needed and we have been able able to relax here and chill out.
A mini home from home, in a great central  location for visiting the main resorts.
Thanks for a lovely holiday ! We’ll be back.
PS. 3 days in a row, a deer came to our bedroom window. Wonderful !


07-11 May 2012
Fantastic location & lodge exceeded my expectations.
Will certainly recommend to others & hope to return again soon.


04-7 May
Thank you for a wonderful time in the lakes!
This was our second time to Fellside Lodge and it was just as good as we remembered.
We came with five other families and this lodge was by far the nicest.
Fortunately the weather has been lovely and we have enjoyed some great walks in the hills.
We too were lucky to see two badgers, we also saw some deer.
I'm sure we will be back next year!


30–04 May
We’ve had a fantastic stay, it’s a lovely lodge with everything you could ask for.
We’ve even had lovely weather, how lucky.
Look out for the badgers between 09:00-09:30pm from the main bedroom window;
they are partial to corn on the cob as well other fruit or veg.
We highly recommend South lakes Animal Park whether you’ve got kids or not!
Also gourmet burgers in in white Lion Ambleside not to be missed.
We’ll definitely recommend Fellside Lodge and Limefitt Park to friends and family.


13-15 April

They kids loved the lodge and the walks around limefitt.
All in all a very enjoyable weekend.

We picked the lakes as our first family holiday.
The first moment we entered the lodge site and this lodge we fell in love with the place.
The moment we got here the views were breath taking a place that will always hold memories for both me and my family.
The lodge is so gorgeous a home from home; a place where you can relax and enjoy all weathers.
My son loved the adventure park on site.
Will definitely be back next year but definitely longer
4 days wasn’t enough to enjoy all the lakes have to offer

23-Sep to 21st Oct 2011
Think we would be, judging by all the previous comments,
the envy of all those guests, having spent a whole month in this lovely lodge.
We agree with all those positive comments
- thoughtfully appointed lodge, everything you could want - beautiful views of the valley.
Watching the ever changing weather
- always able to get straight out into the surrounding countryside at some part of the day.
So in a word 'Superb'
Thank you for your attentiveness.

19-23 Sep 2011

Fellside Lodge & Limefitt Park looked great on the internet and we were thrilled

Dear Bash & Donna,
This was our first visit to Limefitt & I'd like to think it will not be our last.
Everything about the week has been enjoyable and even the weather hasn't been too bad.
The lodge itself has proved very comfortable & met all our needs.
We have enjoyed exploring the area and the girls enjoyed Grizedale forest Park.
The cruise on Windermere was another highlight
while the numerous locally brewed real ales has kept one of our party very happy !
We've enjoyed good meals at the Haybarn, The Mortal Man, The Watermill(excellent), the crows at Coniston.
As I write this the sun is just beginning to disappear behind the hills, signalling the end to another fine day & a great week.
Many thanks & all the best.

We had a wonderful 3 days in the lodge, the location is fantastic for exploring the lakes and
the park itself more than adequate for a family time together.
We have been very impressed with your attention to detail, I could have left half my kitchen at home ;-)
Our 2 year old was thrilled to be greeted by 2 ducks at the gate on arrival and has enjoyed lots of firsts. First boat ride on Windermere lake, first train journey to Haverthwaite and first Cinema experience (sort of) at the world of Beatrix Potter.
We will be back.
