Eden Lodge Self-Catering

Holiday home
Eden Lodge is a spacious detached Edwardian property in the small village of Bardsea a few miles from Ulverston. The property has thirteen bedrooms offering a variety of sleeping arrangements, most of which have en-suite facilities. Two of the bedrooms are on the second floor, along with a shower room, kitchen and sitting area, offering a more private space within this lovely property. The main living area consists of a well-equipped kitchen, a dining room set within a sunny conservatory, and a spacious sitting room with woodburner. Outside is a barrel sauna, a patio with hot tub, and mature grounds plus ample off road parking. Eden Lodge offers a very special opportunity for a group of family or friends to spend time together and enjoy this lovely part of Cumbria, with its coastline, market towns and proximity to the beautiful Lake District National Park.

Area
Positioned on a hill overlooking Morecambe Bay is the small village of Bardsea. This remote settlement grew from a small fishing village and farming area to become a major transportation link for coal, iron ore and corn. Today, Bardsea still retains its fishing heritage, and features two pubs, both of which serve fine ales and good food. The village itself is located close to Furness Abbey, whilst the market town of Ulverston is just two miles away, and maintains its street market tradition, hosting one every Thursday and Saturday throughout the year. Ulverston is also the location for many festivals including an amazing lantern procession in November and a Dickensian weekend in early December. With all the attractions of the Lake District National Park within easy driving distance, and the sandy beaches of the Furness coast close by, this peaceful spot has plenty to offer.

Region
Impressive mountains, open fells and clear-water lakes, the Lake District has it all. From walking in the mountains to exhilarating watersports or just a gentle cruise on a steam-powered yacht, Cumbria is the perfect holiday destination.

The cottage was lovely however one of the bedrooms was full of fruit flies and cob webs in the corners of the room showing it clearly hadn’t been properly cleaned.. Bar that the facilities were lovely in the kitchen and lounge areas.

We went for a family holiday 18 of us both adults, children and 1 infant, Monday - Friday.. It was one of our best holidays so relaxing and absolutely spotless clean. The kitchen had everything you would need and more

Just returned from a brilliant weekend at Eden Lodge.. This accommodation is perfect for a large group. There was plenty of space in the house and the outside space was fantastic too. Beds were so comfortable but rooms can get very warm. Wifi connection isn't the best but wasn't a huge problem for us. Ulverston is a lovely town and about a 2 mile walk away. I would definitely go back again.

We had such a brilliant stay at Eden Lodge, the place has everything you need for the perfect weekend away.. This exceeded my expectations hugely & we will 100% be returning next year!

There are a few radiator leaks and cold radiators.. The bed in Room 5 needs changing. The light at the top of the stairs on right next to the window flashes all night. Could do with more mugs.There was only one extra key, not three. Otherwise it was great and we will be back again sometime

Great stay.. Everything was awesome and the house was very clean. One improvement would be the WiFi. Almost non-existent in most of the property, especially when all guests are connected. Apart from that, it’s a great place.

The bedrooms were very comfortable.. The lounge and dining room allowed my family to meet together in comfortable surroundings. The large garden was great for the children to play. The large kitchen made catering for a large number of people very easy.

Eden Lodge is located in a strategically great part of the Lakes with lots to do in the area whatever the weather.. The Lodge itself is set in delightful grounds, with a large car park, external sauna and hot tub facilities - which were incidentally were checked during our stay by their efficient and friendly staff. The games room was very popular with my grand children! The owners have gone to a lot of trouble to make sure that the facilities are ideal and can cope with large numbers of occupants. The kitchen is excellent and well provided with an extensive cooker range, large capacity fridges and two dish washers - all of which worked very well for us. The bedrooms are well appointed, bright and airy with excellent en suite showers. I booked Eden Lodge as a surprise birthday present for my wife and had 14 adults, 4 children and a baby staying. It worked perfectly with plenty of space for all. My guests very much enjoyed their stay and I would return at the first opportunity.

Such a great venue for a big celebration.. So relaxing and comfortable and plenty of space. We did several walks straight from the house, played games in the grounds and having the coast so close was lovely. We’d love to go again. Only minor concern for the group that there seemed no facilities for recycling - being a big group we had plenty! Some advice on supporting this would have been helpful. Otherwise - perfect!
Ms Bentley, May 2019

Lovely venue for a large family gathering.. Lovely weather! Smaller points are- 1 window in the conservatory is broken and nearly impossible to shut (note left about these things for cleaners) The dishwashers are nearly impossible to work, they were not responding to buttons when we arrived and needed a factory re-set, then with a large number of people it took most of the way through the week before people stopped opening them part-way though (as is OK for most dishwashers) Not enough spoons for soup and dessert for each person, not enough forks for each person not enough teaspoons, not enough mixing bowls, not enough chopping boards, not enough cafetieres, the bath in room 8 would not empty without the plug being held up. The carpet behind the reception desk is stopping the door there being opened and that is damaging the carpet. The particulars say there is a lockable bike shed- but when we rang we were told there is not. There was good support when we rang about a fault with the fire alarm. Please correct these small details No need to publish the little details re spoons etc.

There was a lady bird nest or festation in two bedrooms.. The heating did not appear to be working on several bedrooms and one radiator was leaking some guests were complying they were freezing through the night The original hot tub was broken a new one brought in but was way to small a lot smaller than original one and did not fit all guests. There was carpet coming away behind the door near the bar in living area so when u opened the door it lifted a large piece of carpet and the door bounced back it hit one of our party members in the face! There was no kitchen appliances in the apartment with the kitchen so what was the point in Avon the kitchen?? I was going to email this information today or put on trip advisor but I will give you the opportunity to reply. I have taken photos of the carpet and the lady birds in the bedrooms! Thank you

Our holiday was amazing.. It had everything we needed/wanted and more. Will definitely be returning next year!
Ms Kelly, March 2019

Property was excellent, great range of facilities and very comfortable.. Lovely location The only slight negative was that we asked if a late check out would be possible, we were told no as cleaners needed to go in on the Sunday morning which is fair enough but then found the property was not booked again until the following weekend. Then had to chase deposit being returned, was told Sykes were waiting for cleaners to go in and confirm everything ok (3 days after we left). So contradictory information from Sykes who denied the owner the opportunity of a late check out fee.
Ms Hartless, March 2019
February 2019
Amazing place.. Very clean and new feel to all the sheets, towels etc.. variety of room types that suited the different needs of our guests. Lovely view and a short walk to the bay. I loved the big tables in the dining room room that meant 20+ people could eat together. Also plenty of crockery and cutlery. We had a fabulous time and I’d go back tomorrow if I could! The only thing I would change is the dish washers could be improved. A lot of things needed reeashing by hand. Also the sauna was not available.
Ms Middleton, February 2019

This holiday did exceed expectations in every area except for the kitchen.. It seems a shame to have missed the highest rating because of a lack of mugs, serving bowls, small glasses for soft drinks. The chopping knives were all blunt and the wine glasses and the dinner plates were too large for the dishwasher. Although at first we thought this was a minor niggle, it turned out to be extremely irritating every time we had a meal and therefore reduce our satisfaction with the property every day.
Prof Elliot, August 2018

As we had 25 people staying there was at times a shortage of mugs due to many being in the dishwasher.. Again as the house was full with people staying in the top flat it was felt there could be more drawer space for clothes. Items had to be left on the floor. The one set of drawers provided were each divided into 3, so no large item could be put in them. A problem with the shower in one of the rooms meant that people in that room did not have this facility for 3 days. However we were impressed that there was a visit from a Handyman at 10.30pm and each day letting us have a progress report until repaired. A comment was also made that there were no electric shaver points near a mirror. Also the shower trays were not slip proof so perhaps a slip mat could be provided. Ample parking. A small notice on the cupboard door indicating the Isolator Switch for the Cookers would have saved a call out when we inadvertently turned it off. Luckily we had finished cooking and the ovens were not needed again that day. We and all our guests thoroughly enjoyed the stay.

We hired Eden Lodge for a family celebration (50th birthday). The Lodge is set in its own large grounds in quiet Bardsea, near Ulverston. Our three night stay was largely very positive, the building being more than adequate to accommodate a large party. With two large sitting areas with bar, a big commercial kitchen, a huge dining room and lots of comfortable bedrooms, mostly en suite, it was liking having our own hotel! But it was such a size that there was never a time we felt we were getting under each other's feet. The lodge also has a sauna and hot tub and here is where the issues arose. The sauna, due to an electrical fault, failed to work at all. The hot tub worked fine on the our first night, but after this didn't heat up properly and we lost the use of this for the rest of the stay. This and having to phone around to report the faults slightly marred the enjoyment of our visit. The issues were reported to the company that manages the property and Sykes Cottages, and we were compensated for the loss of the amenities. All in all the positives of Eden Lodge outweigh the negative parts of our stay and we would consider visiting again, my only proviso would be to check that all the selling points of the property are in working condition on arrival.

This property was of a high standard with everything you could possibly need, the group of 25 family and friends celebrating my husband Bob’s 60th were all delighted with the property and everyone was so pleased with the quality of the house.. We all had a wonderful time and the group were all discussing the next option we could get there again. The hot tub sauna and games room was a nice touch of luxury. The kitchen was amazing. The views were spectacular. WONDERFUL SPLEND PLACE. South lakes services were really helpful and all the staff at Sykes were helpful and friendly I ended up knowing some staff by there names. To round it all up, Fantastic!!!!

We thought Eden Lodge was a lovely house.. with great facilities. But something needs to be done about the Decking as it is very slippery, my son ended up at A&E after slipping over and is now off work and on crutches. My brother in law also fell over the following day and cut his arm.
Ms Hesketh, January 2018

Eden Lodge exceeded all our expectations enormously as soon as we entered the front door, the bedrooms were well furnished to a good standard, all en-suite, all the facilities were in good order and the family made full use of them on a daily basis, my wife was over joyed because it was a surprise 60th birthday present and she wants to spend more time there again in the future, I hope I can make her dream come true.. Well worth the money, wish we were still in a really good residence.

We have just returned home from a week at Eden Lodge - self catered, whole property rental - over the Christmas week. What an amazing property to share as a family. Loads of space, beautifully decorated, and every room en suite. We had a couple of issues with things not working or broken but the service company came almost straight away and properly sorted or completely replaced things. We would highly recommend Eden lodge for family get togethers and thoroughly enjoyed all the amenities . and beautiful local walks. The view from the dining room (and hot tub) is breathtaking Thank you for an amazing week !

The accommodation was excellent with each bedroom having an en-suite. There were 22 people in our party and they all remarked how good Eden Lodge is. There was plenty of room, cutlery, crockery and this was an ideal place to hold a 60th birthday weekend. Convenient for Windermere, Eden Lodge is an ideal base and a bonus was the golf course next door. Overall a great weekend enjoyed by all!

The bedrooms all had en suites and were furnished to an excellent standard. The lounge and dining area were so large it more than accommodated our party of 16 adults and 6 children. The kitchen was of a catering standard so had more than enough crockery and glasses for us all. The location was also very picturesque with views down to the sea which is only a 10 minute walk away. Outstanding accommodation which we would recommend to big groups without hesitation.

We were celebrating our Ruby Wedding and were joined by all our five children, three spouses and nine grandchildren so we needed a big spot. We were not disappointed. The high quality of the house and fittings, the ample space for children (young and old) to play indoors when it was raining, the warm welcome from the owner, the ample well equipped kitchen, the hot tub, the beautiful grounds, the bedrooms and en-suite facilities, the 'flexible' lounge furniture and the views from most rooms over Morcambe Bay to the hills beyond all helped to make it a memorable holiday and celebration.
