Love this place, returned again this year & intend to again next year, it's quiet, spotlessly clean and the views and walks are amazing. Dog thinks it's his yearly holiday, stream outside is very handy to dunk him in to get rid of the mud before settling back down in front of a beautiful wood burning log fire for the evening. Can't recommend this place enough.

Stayed for the weekend in Feb 2016. Arrived late on Friday and worried we had no coins for the power, local pub kindly provided cash back and the owner had left credit in the unit. Perfect spot for a true stay in scenic Cumbria. Lodge was excellent and really cosy, cut logs were left outside. Great walks and amazing views. Will go back

“Second time here and 10/10 again!”
Reviewed December 25, 2015 for a stay in December 2015

My girlfriend and I stayed in the crag view lodge over three years ago. It was fantastic then and this time round was perfect once again! What a fantastic place to enjoy a peaceful and luxury christmas.

Thank you so much for going over and above for us.

10/10!

“With a few tweaks - it would be perfect”
Reviewed September 16, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We usually stay in Keswick on our yearly trip to the Lakes, but our usual place was booked, so we thought we'd try somewhere new. We chose Fisherground Lodges as it was dog friendly, had a rafting pond for the kids and was close to the Ratty railway and local pubs.

Overall the lodge was great - but there were a few things we were getting irritated with by the time we left.
Kitchen: lack of non stick pans (there was only one, and that was in a terrible state) so scrambled egg in the morning wasn't an option! No spatter guard - the kitchen is totally open plan and has a small lino floor that was like an ice (read grease) rink by the time you'd finished your sausage and bacon. I wasn't expecting the have to clean the kitchen floor whilst on holiday! General layout isn't great - could do with a breakfast bar/extra work surface between the dining table and kitchen (you'll understand if you go).
Beds: mattresses were very hard and jolly uncomfortable.
WIFI: virtually non existent. My husband and I run a small company and we have to be able to log on to make payments etc. We found ourselves huddled in the strangest places to get 1 bar!
No recycling facilities - when you come from Surrey, it comes as a bit of a shock that there are no different coloured buckets for paper, plastics, glass etc. We had to create our own and take it up to the banks by the village shop (a good 20 minute walk, up a hill - not great with kids). Something the owners really should get onto the local council about, although I appreciate it's not that easy.

BUT aside all that, we had the best week. The lodges are well located for good walking. My husband disappeared up the side of a big hill with the dog one morning! The rafting pond was my elder boy's favourite thing - he was even out there in the rain. It was very clean and we only lost electric once because we'd forgotten about the meter. The kids "play area" really is for tiny tots (my boys are 6 and 7). We didn't use the pool table/table tennis in the barn. The ratty stop is just through the campsite next door.
It would have been nice to have had some kind of acknowledgement from the site owners in person but I understand they themselves were on holiday that week (their friend was sorting the rubbish out on check out).

Must visits - go on the ratty to Boot and visit the Eskdale Mill. There's a great pub next door - we went twice! Local pub George IV also good - does a great lasagne.

Management Response

Hi,

Thanks for your feedback, much appreciated and nice to hear you had a good time in Eskdale.

It’s unfortunate that you didn’t contact us while you were here, although we were on holiday at the time we always have someone available to sort out any issues.
Mattresses are a very personal thing some people like them firm and some like them softer, we have had had many positive comments on the beds, however following your review we have now fitted mattress toppers to the firmer double beds in Woodbank and BarnGarth.
Non stick pans often get damaged, we have a stock and have now replaced the Frying pan in Woodbank, we will also give splatter guards a try.
The Wifi is distributed from a single point on site, we have WiFi extenders in different lodges to improve the range, its possible one of the extenders had been switched off during your stay, if you had given us a call we may have been able to resolve the issue.
The recycling point is only a couple of minutes away in the car and we are happy to deal with any that is left after your stay.

Thanks again for the feedback.

Kind Regards

Pete & Kathryn

“Fantastic Site”
Reviewed August 31, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Had a great time at the Fisherground Site. Stopped for 4 nights in a 6 man tent. Nothing was an issue, staff were great, toilets clean etc. Thought the tent spacing was good and my 7 yr old boy loved it. The waterfalls are well worth the walk as is the climb to top of the hill over the railway. We also travelled to the zoo (under 1 hr) and Windermere (75 mins) once for horse riding and once to hire a boat. There is so much to do. We will definitely book again.
