On entering The Lodge guests will immediately be struck by how beautifully light and airy the building feels. This is created by the two story glass atrium in the lobby and reception area.
At the heart of the Lodge is the all day coffee shop which serves continental breakfast in the morning, coffees and snacks throughout the day and also has a fully licenced bar which serves continental and local beers, spirits and a wide variety of wines by the glass and by the bottle.
Continental breakfast is included in the room rate, although the Lodge does not offer full meals. However The Kings Head Hotel, which is under the same ownership and is a two minute drive from the Lodge, serves all day gastro bar meals and also boasts a fine dining restaurant, The St. Johns.
From junction 40 off the M6 via the A66 The Lodge in the Vale enjoys direct access to the motorway system and with the main line rail link at Penrith, it is accessible from all areas of the UK for both car drivers and those who prefer using public transport.
Perfect For Exploring The Lake District
The location is perfect for exploring the area; surrounding the Lodge is some of the finest scenary in the Lake District. Direct access to Helvellyn can be gained via the white stones route just South of the Lodge adjacent to The Kings Head Hotel.
Keswick and Derwentwater are a short drive away; with the Northern fells of Skiddaw and Blencathra rise in the distance creating the perfect backdrop to any Lake District break or holiday.
If you fancy a short afternoon walk, Castlerigg Stone circle and Tewet Tarn are easily accessible from st. John’s in the Vale.
