Bank End Lodge is a beautiful cottage, very well kept and equipped for large groups. We booked for a family get together to celebrate a significant birthday and we were not disappointed. Living space, dining area, kitchen, bedrooms and bathrooms all very clean and welcoming. Great selection of books, Dvds and games if needed. Lovely garden area and fantastic views. The Hot Tub is a bonus and was well used during our stay, (topped up daily which was great). Good location for walks, we also visited Muncaster Castle which was lovely. Weather was not brilliant but it did not spoil our stay. Only downside - property is close to a main road which may be noisy in the summer. We will certainly return when a large property is needed.

I thouroughly enjoyed my stay at Bank End Lodge and would recommend lodge as a perfect place to stay. The location was great although we didnt venture to far as the weather made the stay great so it was Bbqs and hot tub and relaxing in the beautiful garden enjoying the peace and quiet surrounded by fields. The kitchen was great, well equiped with everything you need. The living area was great although as I say with weather most of the eating and sitting was done in the garden. i would recommend bank End Lodge as a great family get away for anyone.
Lovely Home but cleaning could be improved

The house was perfect, plenty of room, nice garden area and an excellent base to explore the Southern Lakes. The dogs loved it with lots of lovely walks to explore. We enjoyed fabulous weather so made very good use of the hot tub.
Unfortunately the standard of cleaning let the property down. Plates were in the cupboard with food still on them, all the pans had to be rewashed and many of the surfaces were either sticky of thick with dust. Outside areas needed a good brush up as cigarette butts everywhere from previous rentals.
Would love to recommend the property but needs to improve the standard of cleaning

We arrived as a 9 strong family and found the amenities suited our needs down to the ground. With three grandchildren and a dog we found the accommodation to be first class. The location is very convenient to tour the Southern Lakes area, with some very good walks from the house which was pleasing as we could have a break from the car.
The facilites and equipment were excellent, plenty of Dvds and games and toys for the little ones. The one downside we found was the position of the smoke alarm sited right above the cooker, every time the oven door was opened it set the alarm off, b ut this is a minor niggle. We would like to return sometime.
Great facilities for man and dog!

Beautiful house, well equipped. Beds comfy, nice walks nearby and a decent pub a short walk away. The garden and hot tub were an excellent bonus! Quite a busy road behind but garden/house well bordered to keep in any wandering dogs (or kids). Noise not a problem. Owners very helpful when we reported a hot water problem.
Loved our stay - would heartily recommend!

When we arrived we could not believe how nice the house was. It was lovely and clean and very large. The fittings were all very modern and the Hot Tub was amazing! It was very large and fantastic to relax in with great views over the hills. It is also under cover so we could relax in it even when the weather was bad.
The bedrooms were spacious for the most part. Only one of the bedrooms (on the bottom floor) was a little cramped. The bedrooms are: 3 double beds and 2 lots of 2 single beds. They were all tastefully decorated and had plenty of storage. There are 3 bathrooms, 2 with showers and one with a bath and shower. All of these were nice and clean. The kitchen was large enough for us to cook for 10 every night, with plenty of work surfaces. There was plenty of cutlery and crockery too. The dining room is part of the kitchen and has one long table that seats 10. The living room has 4 sofas in it and a large plasma tv (and an excellent selsction of Dvds). There was also a stereo with an iPod dock for music.
When we arrived there was a note to say the oven was not working but the owner came round that evening to explain that it would be fixed within a few days. This did not bother us as we were mainly cooking with the hobs anyway. Other than this I cannot think of any negatives to this property!
As for the location, the house was great. It is only a short drive from Conniston and Windermere. The only problem we found was the lack of pubs/restaurants within walking distance. We didn't try the nearby pub as we found some bad reviews so I can't say anything about that.
I would thoroughly recommend this property to those with large groups as it sleeps 10 very comfortably. However cars are a must due to the location!

Lovely,clean home. Modern decor, well equipped. Very safe, enclosed garden. Easy to access the south lakes. We had a brilliant 40th birthday get together with friends and children.

Great place for a family

Well located (walks from the door). Very well furnished with good quality fitments. Very warm and cosy - we needed the heating when we were there! A great place for a family 'get together'. Safe garden area for children/dog. Can recommend highly.
A lovely house!

A fantastic barn conversion with plenty of space for all, including 3 dogs. The garden was ideal for them and totally dog safe.
The owner called to see if everything was OK. He was very friendly and helpful. We had no problems at all during our stay and thoroughly enjoyed it. We would recommend the house to anyone.
