The Cumbria/Lake District region
The Lake District and Cumbria is a fantastic place to visit and is ideally suited for all kinds of holidays - short breaks, a week away or a long holiday. The spectacular mountain and lake views, beautiful scenery, open moors, fells, woodland and rolling hills offer something for everyone. It is an fantastic place to get away from the stress and strains of everyday life, or enjoy outdoor pursuits and thrills.
The Lake District is a magical place during any time of year. In spring there are delicate, wild daffodils, swathes of vibrant bluebells and the accompanying bleats of lambs. Summer brings long, warm days and the dapple of sunlight through trees. Autumn is a popular time to enjoy the colours of the leaves and still days on the mountains and lakes. In winter the mountain tops always have a dusting of snow and the crisp frosty weather makes for lovely walking.
Whatever the time of year, the Lake District can always provide a welcoming place to eat and drink. This could be a thirst quenching pint in a local pub, a superb meal in a high quality restaurant, or even just fish and chips by a lake.

Myself, my partner and my dog all enjoyed a short weekend at Puddle Duck Lodge, the only complaint is that we couldnt get longer off work to enjoy more time there! We will be coming again next year without a doubt!
There is enough room for multiple guests if needed, but we mostly pulled out the sofa bed and relaxed listening to the River, its surprising how quick time flies when your relaxing and unwinding!
There is loads to do in the area if you have time, we went on many walks as there is lot to see. We didnt use any site facilities so cannot comment but overall it was clean and welcoming.
When we were packing up the car to leave Jet (the dog) sulked and tried to hide he wanted to stay that badly!
We would recommend this lodge to anybody.

Thanks for a lovely review. We know just how Jet felt when he had to go home. A lot of people feel the same way!
We'll look forward to welcoming you back to Puddleduck Lodge next year when you can all try a few more walks. Hopefully there will be enough time to discover a bit more of the Lake District and some of the local facilities too.
