Holiday home Pippin Lodge is a fabulous, detached holiday lodge, set amongst pretty countryside on an exclusive lodge park near Allithwaite and Cartmel, with lots of walks and cycle routes in the surrounding area. The lodge is accessed up four steps and is then set across one level, with one double bedroom and en-suite shower room, plus an open plan living space with a woodburner and patio doors opening onto a large decked area. Outside is furniture, a gas barbecue and peace and quiet, so you can enjoy alfresco dining accompanied by birdsong. There is off road parking for one car. In a wonderful location, Pippin Lodge is a delightful rural retreat, perfect for couples exploring the Lake District.
Area Renowned for being the prettiest village in the Lake District, the small town of Cartmel in South Lakeland is a wonderful, picturesque holiday destination. At the heart of this thriving community is the Priory Church, one of the finest ecclesiastical buildings in the north of England with its gatehouse still in use as the entrance to the settlement itself. Amidst cobbled streets and pretty streamside walks, are a range of quaint gift shops, antique shops, traditional pubs that serve real ale and the nationally renowned Michelin-starred restaurant L'Enclume. A well-loved destination for hill-walkers, the region is full of excellent trails through stunning, unspoilt countryside. In addition, there is the Campbell Legend Bluebird Exhibition, Lakeland Motor Museum and Hunt Racecourse all in the near vicinity. With Windermere and Grange-over-Sands only a few minutes away, there's plenty for everyone to do.
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.

This place has it all, cosy, very clean and tidy, very much a home from home, you are provided with all the essentials and a whole lot more! The host are very friendly and helpful and the only people we could find to accommodate ourselves and our two Irish Wolfhounds (thankfully, as its such a lovely place). The lodge is situated in a prime location around areas to walk your dogs on or off leash, a short walk from the centre of Cartmel and a mere car ride to other well known destinations. We will most definitely be returning and recommended to all of our friends and family.
Excellent lodge on a beautiful site well situated for visiting the area.. Would highly recommend!
The owners Kevin and Kath were very helpful and lovely to get to know.
Enjoyed the week very much, especially the cheeky squirrel on the birdfeeder.

Mr Norman, November 2019
Excellent lodge and walking distance to Cartmel village which has a good selection of places to eat and drink.. Very friendly and helpful owners and will recommend. Great base for the lakes and the sea.
The lodge was great for our needs.. Cartmel is a lovely village and the closeness of the lodge makes it very accessible. The site was peaceful and the wild birds are very beautiful. Especially the woodpecker we saw on the bird feeder.
We have 2 dogs, one of which gets very excited and noisy when he sees other dogs, so unfortunately he was often seeing the owners dog and going potty, but the owners were fine about this and were very welcoming.
The lodge has everything you would need but the only thing I would say to people who are booking is read about the wifi. You are given 1gig which is fine as it says in the book for emails and browsing but as we were watching catch-up tv on our iPads it was gone in no time. It did say to ask if you need more but we didn't bother.
Great holiday and would visit again.
Amazing location, beautiful lodge accommodation with fantastic storage.. We travelled on motorbike but all out gear was safely stored out of the way. Gorgeous location - very peaceful with lovely decking areas to relax. Lovely pre-contact from the owners ensuring we knew information. Property allows 2 dogs but there was no lingering smell or dog hair - the place was spotlessly clean. Will return to this particular accommodation and recommend highly to others.
Lovely place very comfortable great location everything you would need we really .... Lovely place very comfortable great location everything you would need we really enjoyed our stay would always book with Sykes this was our second stay we stayed at south stack last time and that was just as perfect thank you
This was such a beautifully presented delightful lodge.. The finishing touches provided by the owners were perfect. From the sticky toffee pudding waiting for us in the fridge to the little tub of dog treats and toy for our dog. We loved every minute of our stay here, the location was great and we went on some superb walks. I would go back to Pippin in a heart beat .
Wonderful location for anyone wanting peace and quiet.. Plenty of good pubs and restaurants within walking distance in Cartmel.
Pippin is a delightful lodge suitable for a couple who enjoy the countryside and looking for a comfortable, very warm and cosy and very well appointed accomodation with lovely little touches which we loved , like the real Christmas tree all lit up with lights on the balcony to the little welcome tray with lovely chocolates.. The lodge is very clean and obviously very well cared for by the owners who live next door and are very friendly and very approachable.Cartmel is a beautiful lakeland village and well worth a visit .There are many restaurants, pubs and eateries all within a few minutes drive who offer excellent food and are very friendly and welcoming. Its a great location for visiting the lakes and dales area. We would love to return in the future and can recommend this lovely little lodge. Thank you for our lovely stay.
A beautiful lodge with great facilities and lovely owners.. In a perfect location to unwind relax and see some beautiful wildlife aswell as having a nice local village with a shop and a couple of pubs. Also in a good location to reach most the lake districts towns, villages and walks. We would highly recommend staying at this lodge and we will be back :-)
Everything supplied to have a wonderful short break in the Lake District.. Lovely lodge with high quality fixtures and fittings. All dog friendly too without any compromise.
Really warm and cosy with both central heating and the log burner.
Has a great large shower too.
Information provided about local area including walks from the lodge.
Very near Cartmel.
You can also bird watch/squirrel watch from the window.
A great find.
This was our second visit to Pipin lodged.. It’s a Lovely lodge which is so comfortable and exceptionally clean and it had everything we needed for cooking out lovely meals. The beds was really comfortable and we both slept well. The shower is large and bathroom spotless and towels we’re provided which was great. We will definitely be going back again.
Spent a splendid week there with my wife and my dog a few weeks ago.. Beautiful, cosy, accoadation with everything we all needed and more. The owners couldn't be more friendly and helpful and really went out of their way for us. It is in a nice peaceful location with Cartmel only a short walk up the road in addition there being plenty of cute little towns a short drive away. We'd highly recommend this stay to anybody.
Peaceful great area and the owners were very helpful all in all a great break..
Everything was better than expected will be back.. So quiet and peaceful listening to the birds early in the morning and watching the squirrels.
Pippin Lodge is just about perfect! Clean, well equipped and with several extras, the lodge is in a lovely park just outside Cartmel. The hosts are helpful and pleasant and have gone out of thei way to make the lodge a lovely place to spend time. We have rented many holiday cottages and this is the best!!
A lovely quiet place, both the lodge and the park that it is on are very well maintained.. The lodge was modern, clean and bright beautifully furnished and dog friendly.
Ideal place for exploring lots of places within the lake district. would recommend and stay again.
Lovely welcome from the owners on arrival and a lovely welcome to the lodge with milk and toffee pudding in the fridge which I though was a lovely tough.. The Lodge was exceptionally clean and had everything we needed for your stay. I can not fault anything in the Lodge and would not improve it. The owners had though of everything to make ours and the dogs stay perfect including leaving a treat for the dog on the side which she ate straight away. We were in the perfect place for hikes and excursions and it was lovely coming back and relaxing after a busy day. We cooked all our mails in the lodge and enjoyed the treacle toffee pudding left for us by the owner. The only draw back of the holiday for me was getting up every morning and having to get dressed to take the dog out to do her business instead of just letting her out of the door but that could be helped and took nothing away from everything else. We have booked to go again in October and are looking forward to it.
Attention to detail and hospitality fantastic.. Will go again and recommend very highly.
We loved it, there was small details that made it special, sticky toffee pudding treat and milk provided and tea and coffee! Treats and a ball for our dog aswel as bowls incase we had forgotten ours! It was so quiet and peaceful, a lovely reality break!
We have just arrived home after a lovely weekend at Pippin Lodge and we will most certainly be back to visit again soon. From the minute we pulled up outside until the moment we pulled away to leave we were made to feel welcome. Kevin and Kath are lovely owners always on hand if needed, we made a request late last night for some kindling for the fire and Kevin was imedate it his response even delivering it to the lodge for us.
The surrounding area is stunning and is a great location to access the lake district.
Excellent location for visiting the south lakes and more
A great area for touring loads of interesting places to visit .. Great pubs and eating places etc. Very cosy and warm Lodge the owners Kath and Kevin friendly and helpful thanks very much indeed .Dave and Cynthia from Chester

We had a great stay in Pippin Lodge with our 2 dogs. The lodge is really well equipped with everything you need for a comfortable stay. A 15 minute walk into Cartmel and numerous other way marked walks on yor doorstep.
Luxury lodge in a great location, thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Lodge is of a high standard lovely place to come back to and relax after a day out. Perfect peaceful retreat just a short stroll from Cartmel which is a delightful village. Ideal place to holiday with your four legged friend would definitely recommend and will return.
Pippin Lodge is a luxury lodge in great location and is a perfect, peaceful retreat. The accommodation is of a high standard and the personal touches make it more special. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and we will definitely recommend and return.
The lodge was warm, cosy and well-equipped. The owners were very helpful and nothing was too much trouble for them. My wife and I had a great time and look forward to another stay.
The property is well equipped, comfortable and the owner, who is close at hand, is helpful and pleasant. It is well situated for walks to local villages, and within easy reach of the Lakes. There are also other walks within easy reach.
The lodge was brand new so there wasnt anything not to like. The setting was perfect, right next to an open woodland and we had a fantastic week of weather.
A big thank you to the owners for providing such a wonderful lodge in such a beautiful surrounding.
Fabulous lodge. Very well equipped and a lovely layout. Walking distance to the pretty village of Cartmel with good pubs and restaurants and great walks nearby. The owners were friendly and we would definitely go again.
Very modern and tidy property with friendly owners and some nice welcoming touches on arrival.
Very nice lodge with everything we needed. We couldn't fault the lodge and enjoyed waking to bird song each morning. We had everything we needed to cook a lovely Christmas dinner and thoroughly enjoyed the wood burning fire, which made it feel very warm and cosy. I would recommend anyone to stay at Pippin Lodge.
A lovely Lodge which was very clean, would not hesitate to book it again. It was close to the lakes and the owners were on hand should you need them. A perfect location, and it was quiet.
As Pippin Lodge is only a few months old, it is well equipped spotless. Very well insulated very cosy, loved the log burner.
Only 1 week after the devastating floods that hit Cumbria, we were booked to stay for a long weekend at Pippin Lodge. Apart from a few poor souls on the A590 this area appeared relatively unscathed. On Arrival we were greeted by a spacious, well equipped, centrally heated lodge and the log burner was a real treat. We soon learnt you need to turn the radiator thermostat's right down when you light the burner and only burn one log at a time or by 9.30 the heat is unbearable . Also keep the bedroom door closed until you go to bed to keep the heat out. The lodge is only a few months old so it's spotless . The owners live in a larger lodge opposite that's only been on site since November so further landscaping is due once weather permits.
Arriving on Friday we only had time for a short walk with the dogs before dark, then it was time to light the burner and crack open a bottle of wine. Once you have used your starter pack additional logs are available for a small fee.
Saturday rained nearly all day , a short trip to the well stocked Booths supermarket at ulveston followed by a look around the small village of cartmell,with its quaint shops it's well worth a visit,then back to the lodge to crack open a bottle of wine.
Sunday we woke to a lovely hard frost, a brisk early morning walk with the dogs with snow topped fells in the distance, beautiful. Another walk along the promenade at Grange over Sands with views over the bay and away from traffic it's great for dogs & young children. After lunch we visited wax lyrical ,if scented candles & diffusers are your thing it's well worth a visit. Drove on the Barrow, by then the rain had returned & the draw of the log burner & a bottle of wine was proving to strong.
Monday morning arrived to soon, we'd had a wonderful relaxing weekend( the wine may have helped). We would like to wish Kevin & Kath good luck with their new venture although I doubt they'll need it as I cannot see anyone being disappointed with this lodge. We have just booked another lodge near Conniston for Easter week, had Pippin not already been booked we would have been back there. There's always next year!
A quick visit to the well stocked farm shop at Low Sizergh on the way home.
