    “Quiet location, lovely lounge, delicious breakfast”

    A great choice if you want to keep away from the crowds in Ambleside. Lovely, quiet lodge. Absolutely delicious breakfast cooked to order. ' Specials' offered each morning as well. The lodge offers cooked meals in the evening, plus there's a great little pub (The Eagles Head in Satterthwaite) 2 miles down the road that serves good food, but you need to book. You can do walks through the forest from the lodge, so a great location for this too. Highly recommended.
