About this property
Perched on the idyllic South Lakeland Leisure Village on the border of the southern Lake District, is this charming Scandinavian lodge, Ashton Lodge. All-ground-floor and sleeping up to six guests, Ashton Lodge is perfect for a family getaway to the Lakes with its tasteful décor, generous off-road parking and variety of on-site facilities available for guests to enjoy. Be welcomed into the spacious open-plan kitchen, dining and sitting area, where you can look forward to cosying up in front of the electric fire and flicking through your favourite channels on the Smart TV. Cook up a storm in the fully functioning kitchen, whilst your guests await their meal at the dining table and discuss plans for the days ahead. As the evening draws to a close, catch your rest in one of three beautifully decorated bedrooms, where you can choose from a king-size with TV and en-suite shower room, perfect for those looking for complete privacy, and two twin rooms with Smart TVs, ideal for those lazy Sunday mornings spent in bed. Indulge in a refreshing shower after a long day of exploring, before joining your guests for drinks at the delightful outdoor dining table as you watch the world go by. Take advantage of the on-site facilities available, including a bar and restaurant for those nights where you don’t feel like cooking, as well as a indoor swimming pool, gym, steam room and beauty therapy suite. Explore your local surroundings and visit the nearby heritage site of Warton Old Rectory, where you can soak up the history of the 14th century ruins and its beautiful grounds. Venture deeper into the Lake District, with a trip to Kendal, where you will find the remains of the once remarkable Kendal Castle, surrounded by glorious countryside views, or soak up the art at Abbot Hall, which is home to famous portraits by 18th century artist George Romney. There is also the opportunity to get involved with wood carving and bushcraft at Woodmatters. A getaway to Cumbria would not be complete without a stop at Windemere, renowned for its large lake where you can look forward to taking part in a variety of watersports, from kayaking to paddle-boarding. Take a leisurely stroll up to the top of Queen Adelaide's Hill to enjoy superb views overlooking Lake Widemere and the Langdale Pikes in the distance. For literary fans, you can visit the attraction of The World of Beatrix Potter, where you can expect interactive exhibits depicting the story of the writer and her links to Lakeland conservation. Bring your family and friendly for a memorable stay in Cumbria at Ashton Lodge.
