"Home from home"
Absolutely fantastic property beautifully furnished throughout the owners have thought of everything by far the best property we have stayed in this being our third visit to southlakeland village in the past twelve months, the site is very well kept a great place to relax . The complex has a bar and restaurant which are very reasonably priced . I would definitely recommend this place to others hope to be back again soon

Spent three days with friends in this beautiful well appointed Lodge it was a real pleasure to stay in such nice surroundings, the lodge was immaculate and it had everything that we needed. Nice to have coffee, tea, sugar, washing-up liquid etc. provided on arrival, lots of places don't provide these, nice touch. It is a lovely site and we all thoroughly enjoyed are stay pity it was not for longer. Would highly recommend this Lodge to all our family and friends
Thanks Christine, will definitely book again

"What a lovely stay! Beautiful."

Thank you for making a return visit to our holiday lodge and taking the time to post a review We particulaly loved the drawings from the children in our visitor's book. We're really happy that you all enjoyed your stay and visit to Docker Park Farm which is fab for the little ones. Perhaps if you visit us again a trip out to the South Lakes Zoo would be ideal as it is also very hands on for the children. Thanks again Christine

"Lovely relaxing break at Capernwray lodge"
A holiday to remember.The owner Christine was a pleasure to speak to and meet always pleasant and very helpful. The lodge was 5 star and immaculate and on a lovely clean park. The surrounding area is beautiful too. We enjoyed a ride out to Morecambe. The on site restaurant was lovely too and the staff always pleasant and smiling. Cannot not find fault and highly recommend for a
a relaxing break
Thank you for your kind comments and we're really pleased that you enjoyed your stay. The food at the Waters Edge Restaurant is always good and to be recommended. Weather permitting lunch on the terrace overlooking the Lake is a lovely relaxing experience.

This is a beautiful and very well equipped lodge with everything you need for a relaxing holiday. Music system is an added bonus and something that my teenage kids loved. We brought our own canoe and went out on the lake every day and had the whole lake to ourselves. This is a lovely site with great amenities. Christine is extremely helpful and a pleasure to deal with. I would recommend this lodge and this site.
Thank you for your lovely review and kind comments, its a huge pleasure as always to know that our guests have had a good time and in particular enjoyed the use of the Lake.

"A luxury lodge on a quiet park - the perfect relaxing getaway"
This spacious, modern, immaculate accommodation is an ideal base to explore the lake district, Morcambe and Lancaster. It has everything you need for a relaxing holiday and I would definitely go back again. Whilst there is a restaurant/bar offering good food, there is not a shop on site which would be helpful, but there are supermarkets a short drive away.
Thank you for a lovely review.
It would be great if there was a shop on the Leisure Village and the lack of one isnt ideal, however Tesco and Booths are within a 5 minute drive and both will do deliveries to the Leisure Village. Several of our guests have found it convenient to place an online order timed to arrive shortly after their own arrival.
