Awarded 4 Stars by Visit Britain. Guests say the lodge is clean, comfortable, cosy, beautifully appointed, relaxing and good value. Perfectly placed in the Northern Lake District, near Penrith, Keswick, Ullswater, Derwentwater and Bassentwaite lake.

The space

The Lodge has been described by previous visitors as clean, comfortable, cosy, beautifully appointed, relaxing and very good value for money.

The Lodge is perfectly placed in the northern Lake District to explore the whole region by car, not far from towns Penrith, Carlisle and Keswick nestling on the fringe of Greystoke Forest. Ullswater, Derwentwater and Bassenthwaite Lake are within easy reach as are many delightful climbs - Catbells, Blencathra and Latrigg to name just a few. Castlerigg Stone Circle, just outside Keswick, is perhaps the most atmospheric and dramatically sited of all British stone circles.

The Lodge is our private holiday home and is comfortably furnished and equipped to a high standard. There are 2 twin bedrooms sleeping 4 people comfortably, fitted kitchen with integrated appliances, open plan lounge/dining area with flat screen TV, DVD and Hi-fi. Landline and Free Wifi Internet connection.

The Lodge benefits from a south facing decked balcony equipped with patio table and chairs from which you can relax and enjoy the abundant wildlife.

Guest access

Guest will have access to the whole house, sheltered decking and surrounding garden as well as the whole of Cumbria and the Lake District.

Interaction with guests

Our housekeeper will leave the space ready for you upon arrival.

Other things to note

We want you and the wildlife to enjoy yourselves, we therefore ask that you keep your speed to a minimum on the gravel road leading to the lodge.

PLEASE NOTE After you leave we each write a review about each other. Me about you as our guest and you about me as your host. This review is posted and visible by anyone. Future hosts do check you out. A bad report almost automatically means no one will wish to host you in the future.
I write my review based on how we find our space left, how well you’ve communicated with me, followed our house rules and should our neighbours have made complaints I will mention them. We expect to clean - but not tidy up mess, wash pots, empty your unused food from the fridge and throw out your rubbish. Everything should look and be back where it was found and in perfect condition with any damage/breakages reported.

Ralph's lodge is beautifully presented in a lovely quiet location a stones-throw away from the spectacular North lakes. The lodge had everything we needed for our trip, a well stocked kitchen, comfortable lounge, and access to the best scenery and walking in England... Everything was easy and straightforward for our stay, we'd definitely come again.

A fabulous place to stay for a break in the lake district. It's a little bit off the beaten track (in amongst a group of other lodges so you're not out entirely on your own) but that all adds to the fun. The lodge is very clean and very well equipped, we felt very much at home. The host was very informative and helpful. Would definitely recommend.

The lodge was located in the rural countryside, quiet and peaceful, but very accessible to nearby towns. Keswick was a quick 30 mins drive with groceries and various other amenities required. The starry night sky was a sight to behold! It was also well equipped with full kitchen facilities, washing machine for your laundry needs, and kept nicely warm with the automatic heaters positioned in every room. There were many books and DVDs provided as well, and it felt like staying at a friend’s home. Ralph left clear instructions on how to get to and check into his lodge, and sat nav managed to find the lodge without any problems. Will highly recommend Ralph’s lodge to anyone driving around the Lake District, especially the northern lakes, and looking for a quiet rural spot to get away from it all.

Having been born in Switzerland it's natural for me to love the hills, rivers and lakes.
For leisure I enjoy walking, running, training working gun dogs, photography, listening to live music, woodturning, yoga and more besides.
