Description

Fisherground Lodges offer self catering accommodation in the heart of Eskdale, one of the most beautiful valleys in the Lake District.

With a large sunny outdoor area and fantastic views of the surrounding fells, Fisherground is an ideal base for exploring the awesome mountains, rivers and lakes in the area.

Fisherground is a wonderful starting point for hundreds of walks, either on the fells or along the banks of the River Esk, with tumbling waterfalls and magnificent clear pools to swim in.

For the more adventurous, we have links with the local outdoor activity specialist and can help you organise guided walks, rock climbing, ghyll scrambling, kayaking etc.

The famous Ravenglass & Eskdale Miniature Railway runs along the valley, its steam trains making the leisurely seven-mile journey down to Ravenglass a picturesque old fishing village with a ruined Roman bath house and Muncaster Castle nearby.

There are five good pubs in the Eskdale Valley, the King

Fisherground is special, what is it about the place?

Is it the feeling of being at one with nature, with sheep in the fields, buzzards in the sky, and herons on the stream running through the orchard?

The sound of the woodpecker in the woods next door?

The way children can just go out to play in the orchard and the shallow water of the pond?

The Games room where you ca re-discover your zest for life with a game of Table Tennis or Pool?

The ease of walking the dog, with all that space around?

The miniature railway, the famous 'Ratty', whose steam engines trundle along just a field away?

Maybe just the stunning scenery?

Whatever it is it's a very real feeling, of peace and tranquillity where you can relax and recharge your batteries.

“Peace and quiet”

Reviewed 2 Oct 2015

We have been visiting Fisherground Lodges, generally twice a year, for the past 14 years. Over the years there have been many updates and improvements to the properties. We always holiday with our dog, who is made most welcome. For us it is the ideal holiday, fresh air, lovely scenery and a clean and comfortable place to stay. To return to the lodge after a hard days walking and enjoy a good nights sleep in the comfortable bed is indeed a pleasure. Don't forget to take your camera and don't miss the local pub which is 10 minuets walk.

“Perfect escape!!!”

Reviewed 28 Sep 2015

We rented one of the lodges that sleep 6 people. First priority for us was being able to take the cats with us which was no problem. The lodge is well out off the beaten track and next to a campsite, this created no problems and the seclusion was excellent. The lodge itself was warm, very tidy and clean. The provision of cooking utensils and basic cleaning items was welcome, as was enough logs, kindling and firelighters to begin the stay. The log burner really pumps out some heat once you get it going. You are left to your own devices once there which was perfect from our point of view. The owner called round briefly to say hello the day before we left and we saw him again as we left the lodge to go home. Other than that we didn't see him, there are instructions for all appliances left easily found along with emergency telephone numbers including a vet (nice touch. The only spoilers are the distance to local attractions and supermarkets, but most places are within an hour so no real issue with this. Also, the internet connection was patchy at best, got disconnected a lot while there. However, this really is an out of the way location so was amazed to even get a connection at all, can't really complain. I'm disabled so a wheelchair ramp to the veranda would be nice but I took my own ramps and this sorted that out. Wet room instead of a bath would be nice too, but again, I knew this wasn't a disabled adapted venue when I booked and I'm still going back that's how much I like it. Would definitely recommend and have aready re-booked for next year.

“Tranquil and beautiful”

Reviewed 12 Nov 2014

A wonderful place to stay if you like being in the middle of the mountains, a bit tricky to get to if you're a wary road user but if you enjoy the "real" Lake District rather than busy tourist attractions of Bowness, Ambleside, Keswick etc then you cannot beat these lodges

“GREAT LODGE, GREAT LOCATION.”

Reviewed 22 Sep 2014

My Husband and I stayed in Wood Bank Lodge for a second time, had a fantastic stay again, lodge very clean and comfortable, and has everything you need, perfect location too. We will be back again!

“Brilliant place to holiday”

Reviewed 22 Mar 2014

Wonderful cabin, modern, fresh, clean, well equipped, great location, brilliant attention to detail, very friendly owners!

“All in all a lovely place to stay !”

Reviewed 5 Feb 2014

Our family has stayed regularly and at different times of the year in the Fisherground Lodges since the 1990s and we love them. This January we chose the new lodge, Crag View, which has the advantage of being bigger, having two bathrooms and toilets and huge windows looking directly over the fell side – beautiful! Over the years we’ve found all the lodges to be comfortable, cosy and quiet. They’re set in beautiful, peaceful surroundings and the facilities are excellent with plenty of hot water and good heating. And it’s lovely to use the wood burner when it’s cold outside ! We’ve enjoyed our walks from the door onto ‘the tops’ or along the valley floor on our way to good pub lunches or dinners. And it’s only 20 minutes down to the coast for when we fancied a beach walk. Pete who runs the lodges is always pleasant and helpful and ready to answer our questions. All in all a lovely place to stay !

“Fantastic place to stay.”

Reviewed 2 Jul 2013

We have just returned from a week stay in Crag View, Fisherground lodges. Easy booking service. Fantastic lodge, well thought out with extra touches to make the stay easier. We travelled with our 10month old baby and a cot and high chair were in the lodge ready for us upon arrival which was helpful. Location was stunning, fantastic views, very peaceful and great for walks, visiting lakes or going on the little steam train which has a stop from the field next door. Lots of pubs nearby for meals, one in walking distance which was very nice. Pete and Kathryn were very welcoming and even went out of their way in returning property to us that we left. Had a lovely time and will definitely be returning. Can not recommend enough for a stay, well worth it.

“Luxury accommodation with an amazing view”

Reviewed 21 Mar 2013

The new lodge at fisherground has everything you could need. It is very well thought out, with all fixtures and fittings to excellent standard. The rooms were spacious and with two luxury bathrooms with two teenagers was a great bonus (with added luxury of a heated floor no less!). Wood burner made it even more cosy. Views were stunning - no need to turn the tv on. Well situated - short walk to pub and numerous potential walks from your front door.

“Perfect place to stay”

Reviewed 15 Jun 2012

My family consists of a dog, baby, toddler and husband and we all enjoyed our stay at the lodge. Was very impressed with what was provided for us and the wood burning fire was a welcome comfort after a good days walking. Have all ready recommended the lodges to friends.

“Perfect Cosy Lodge”

Reviewed 13 Feb 2012

We stayed here for a long weekend and we couldn't have been more happy! We unfortunately had a little problem travelling down due to the weather but even managed to get hold of the owners for a late night telephone call to help us get directed to another route. Once we arrived at the lodge we were really happy. The lodge was very warm and welcoming. Not to mention the fantastic wood burning stove!! It was all exceptionally clean, good hot shower, and had all the full mod cons you need! There was only two of us plus the dog however these are big enough to accommodate 6 people - very spacious! Remember to take some £1 coins with you for the electricity....don't let this put you off, we were there for 3 days and only used about £6 worth of electricity! We took a dog with us and its a perfect site for this.......we struggled to get him back indoors once he was in the stream! I would recommend these lodges for anyone, excellent location to see Eskdale with a fab pub down the road for a good roast dinner at the end of a long days walk. We will definitely be returning! Thanks for a great stay!
