The Cumbria/Lake District

The Lake District is world famous for its spectacular scenery, beautiful lakes and pretty villages. A haven for walking and outdoor pursuits.

A perfect place to visit either in the warmth of summer, the beautiful colours of Autumn, the crisp cold days of Winter or when the days get longer and warmer as Spring returns. It will simply take your breath away whenever you decide to visit.


The tranquil location of Limefitt Park is the perfect place to unwind and recharge. For those who can bear to leave this peaceful haven the twin villages of Windermere and Bowness are close at hand, with superb restaurants and pubs, shops, theatre and the Lake with all it has to offer.

"Excellent couldn't ask for a nicer lodge"

Stayed here for a long weekend with my family to celebrate my birthday, as we were visiting Rookin Farm for an activities weekend. The Lodge was spotlessly clean, bottle of wine and chocolates as a welcome gift.The lodge was full equipt, didn't want for anything, beds comfortable, bedding and towels provided. Lounge area very well designed and very comfortable was like home from home I really didn't want to come home. Outside large decking area with table brolly and padded sun loungers provided. Lovely views from either side of the lodge. Will certainly be paying another visit this year and I would highly recommend Ruskin Lodge to everyone, very competitive price as well can't beat it.

So glad you enjoyed your stay at Ruskin Lodge, thanks for taking the time to write a review. Jacky

"Truly Stunning"

We stayed at Ruskin Lodge recently and found it fantastic in every respect.As a base for exploring the lakes it ticks every box,Bowness,Widermere are all within close proximity by car.The area around Limefitt is also superb,plenty of walks and even a couple of pubs for those who wish to leave the car behind.
Ruskin Lodge itself is appointed to an exceptional standard,every home comfort is provided.On arrival everything was spotlessly clean and we even had a few welcome goodies waiting for us.
A credit to the owners ,this lodge is First Class.
Many thanks for allowing us to share it.Regards,The Hill Family

Thanks for your kind words, really appreciate you taking the time to post your review. Jacky
