Absolutely stunning

Our stay in the stargazer lodge was incredible! Staff were friendly and helpful! The lodge its self was beautiful, comfortable and practical. We loved that it was very quiet and peaceful, there were other lodgers next door to use but we could hardly hear them and nearly forgot they were there! The break away was just what we needed thank you! Only feedback would be that the skylight for stargazing was dirty so we couldn’t see out of it.

Fantastic Stay

Me, my partner and our dachshund had a wonderful stay Easter weekend in the star gazing lodge.The host were 10/10. Very welcoming and helpful. A card and bottle of wine was left as a welcome gift and the hot tub was ready to go when we arrived. The lodge was exceptionally clean and tidy with all essential things thought about and included. The only thing I would have like to have been included would have been a sweeping brush for the floors and outside. The dust pan and brush was a little too small for this job.The bathroom was a fantastic size and both beds and sofa bed were great to sleep on. It was a lovely home away from home and the surroundings were fantastic. There was a wedding in the main ground on the Saturday. This didn’t disturb our stay. We didn’t use the bar facilities but bought a pizza from the van which was delicious. Would definitely stay again and would highly recommend this to our friends and family.

Fabulous setting and viewsBeds really comfyKitchen facilities everything we neededOnsite facilities were closed due to being out of seasonDoor was really hard to lock and having arthritis in my hands meant I couldn't do itBlinds needed on the window above doorsPersonal preference to have blackout blinds in the lodge, early sunrise meant all the family were awake too early Sofa bed didn't work properlyExternal tap needed to refill hot tub to alleviate the need for staff to enter lodge

Really good set up

A lovely place a little outside of the Lakes but not too far away that you can't drive back in. Accommodation was clean, well thought out and overall really very good. We had a very slight issues with bedding not being clean but this was quickly resolved with a new set being dropped off.

Lovely lodge and kids loved the lazer quest

Lovely area, we were fortunate there was no tents on the field by the star gazer lodge. We both commented that the hot tub might have felt a bit over looked with people passing by etc if the camp field was in use. Lodge was lovely and clean and enclosed garden ideal for our young dog

The Stargazer pod was very well equiped had everything needed My only sugesstion would be to put the spare bedding for the sofa into the sofa box as there was no room in the wardrobe to put our clothesWould have liked to have more in the shop to buy ie fresh fruit, milk, bread eggs so onThe staff were very helpful and friendly recommening local pubs and places to goDid the woodland walk very calming although still very wet in placesAnimals were sweet and the playparks for the children were goodShower blocks, although did not use, seemed very good A new one is just being built where we were stayingPlenty of rubbish bins which was good

Great country retreat!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Blaithwaite house! We booked a stargazer pod which was a lovely little space to stay for the week. My son loved the mezzanine level and it felt like just enough space for 3 of us. The outside area was idyllic, lovely swing seat to enjoy the evenings and the hot tub was great after walking in the lakes.Main negative was that there was no air conditioning and we were there on the hottest day. They did provide a small fan but an upgrade to air con would be amazing. The grounds it’s self was lovely. We enjoyed playing mini golf! Whilst it could do with some TLC and updating, the extra bumps and holes just added to our fun and laughter. The goats also kept us entertained and we loved using the green space for tennis and football.

Thank you so much to the team at Blaithwaite House. We stayed in a stargazer to celebrate for my friends hen do. On Friday we had Mane cocktails attend for a cocktail masterclass and the Saturday we had a spa night with mobile therapist Claire Jackson who gave us all a massage. It could not have been any more perfect! Everything was ready and set up for the stargazer, easy access and parking. The facility had everything in we needed, great to have a bbq and hot tub! Lovely and clean. We were close enough to Carlisle so we had a short trip for a lovely lunch during the day. We only live 15mins away but felt like a true getaway! So unique. The perfect send off 💕🥂

Peaceful & relaxing stay

We stayed in a stargazer. We had a lovely peaceful stay We enjoyed a couple of the walks around the estate & the mini golf. Location is great for local villages and exploring Cumbria and the lakes. My only problems were the the number of the stargazers done seem to match the map, on the map it says we were in no.1 buy when we arrived it said no.2 outside the lodge and also I feel a lamp would be useful in the livingroom of the lodge as the big lights are very bright to have on when sitting at night watching telly and you just want a small light on. The lodge has everything you would need great amount of towels & utensils. I loved the touch of the picnic bag with the plastic cups and plates. We never met any staff unfortunately but being self catering we didnt expect to me anyone. Overall it is an amazing location, sunsets are beautiful and we will be returning. Thanks for an amazing holiday.
