About Sarah Tillotson

We are a couple who live in Marsden, Near Huddersfield, West Yorkshire. We have 3 children 17, 13 and 4 years old. It is lovely to all get some quiet time together and enjoy the area. We have very busy lives so the lodge is just the perfect getaway.

Sarah Tillotson purchased this villa in 2011

Why Sarah Tillotson chose Penrith, East Lakes & Eden Valley

We went to look at the land in January 2011 and didn't know what to expect but we just fell in love with it. The lodge was completed in autumn 2011 and we spent Christmas and new year there with our children, parents and other family members staying in near by lodges it was wonderful. It is the perfect location for some quiet and peaceful time. You are only 4 miles from Greystoke village with a lovely pub and local shop and only 10 mins drive from centre of Penrith and 20-25 mins away from Keswick giving you the perfect location for your perfect holiday.

What makes this villa unique

Whilst staying at Pond View Lodge you can enjoy various activity's such as walking through Greystoke forest or cycling enjoying the wonderful scenery. The lodge is only 4 miles from the nearest village with a lovely village pub and shop/post office. Penrith is 10 minutes and Keswick only 20-25 minutes away by car. You will find all what you would require for the perfect holiday in these towns including leisure facilities which in Keswick the swimming baths has a great slide for you and the kids. Whilst enjoying all of this you could just sit and relax on the decking overlooking the lovely dukes pond.

Had a great time & have booked again

A cozy place to stay with everything you need in a quiet part of the lake district. Having red squirrels visiting was amazing & can't wait to re-visit again this year

Modern lodge in lovely area

  • 5 of 5
Verified Stay

Although we stayed at the end of November the lodge was lovely and warm and equipped with all necessary appliances. Well maintained and looked after. Within easy reach of lake district and pennines.Would certainly recommend to others. One word of caution, though, if visitng in winter and the weather is icy watch out for the country roads. Even had a visit from a red squirrell.

Perfect property for a family visit to The Lakes

  • 5 of 5

The property was exactly as described, great location (red squirrels at your door), very well equipped, exceptionally clean and comfortable. Perfect for us (a family of four). We hope to return soon and wouldn't hesitate to recommend this property.

Lovely getaway in the Lakes District

  • 5 of 5
Verified Stay

This is a nicely decorated, well fitted out lodge within a group of lodges on a private road tucked away in a quiet rural spot. We visited in August and hardly saw or heard anyone else staying in nearby lodges.

We travelled with three children under 5 and had a great week here. Cot, bedding, highchair all provided. The addition of a few plastic plates / cups / cutlery for the children would be a good idea.

There's a decked area off the main living space which is fenced and secure where the children could play. Plus a grassed area accessed via a gate from the decking.

Would definitely recommend, a really good find.
