Dukes Pond Lodge is in a stylish lodge overlooking the pond at Dukes Meadow. The Lodge is perfectly based for exploring the Northern Lakes and Eden Valley, ideally located a few minutes off the M6 with Ullswater a 10 minute drive and Keswick just 30 minutes away. A trip over Kirkstone Pass will not only treat you to some spectacular scenery but will take you down into to the bustling Ambleside and Bowness on Windermere.
The park has 30 pine clad lodges, but with only a small few being available as holiday accommodation, this peaceful and charming location is a real gem for tourists. The trickling stream running through the centre of the park only adds to the tranquility and each lodge has its own garden with views over the countryside to the Lakeland Fells. There is an abundance of wildlife such as hare, deer and if you are lucky you may even catch a glimpse of the red squirrels. The location of the lodges means there are ample walking opportunities from the front door. The neighbouring Greystoke Forest and the surrounding countryside are all easily accessible, whilst the Lakeland Fells are all within a short drive.
Dukes Pond is furnished and equipped to cater for all your needs, and as the name suggests, overlooks the small pond, one of the best positions on the park. The secure gated decking ensures privacy and prevents your four legged friends escaping.
