View Accommodations

Avon Wood Lodges is a small quiet park offering the perfect setting for a peaceful and secluded holiday. The park nestles in grounds of natural woodland sloping down to the shores of Windermere where there are boat launching facilities. Only 5 miles from the lively village of Bowness Avon Wood is an ideal base for touring the National Park stately homes and market towns.

When it comes to choosing your accommodation there is quite a range to select from.  The lodges are very popular and come with DVD and CD players. The Rydal lodge and the Blakeholme lodge both sleep 6.  For a luxurious option with private hot tub then the Ambleside Retreat lodge which sleeps 2 and the Retreat lodge which sleeps 4 are recommended. For a budget friendly traditional caravan with TV and video then the Bowness Caravan is recommended and sleeps 4.

I would suggest adding an armchair for anyone, like myself, that struggles with low sofas. It would be more comfortable than sitting on a dining chair for the duration of your stay. And this is by no means a criticism....just a suggestion for people with mobility/disability issues.

The retreat is an amazing lodge. Very private and quiet. There is everything you could possibly need. We used the bbq every night. There are a few negatives in my opinion firstly the bed is too small even the wifes legs where sticking out the end and secondly the hot tub although it had fantastic views across the lake it was a little tired.

Joanne, Whitehaven
Date of stay: 1st May 2017
When we arrived, we were shown how everything worked in the lodge.
The lodge was beautiful! It was spotlessly clean and had loads of little homely touches that you wouldn't find in a hotel or b & b. The owner had even gone as far as getting flowers (at my fianc's request) and putting them in vases all over the lodge! Oh and the bottle of prosecco and box of chocolates for us to enjoy too! This were lovely touches as it showed that they are willing to go that extra mile for guests. There were no problems throughout our stay so we didn't have to bother the owner and vice versa; it was very private and were able to just get on with our holiday!
The hot tub was totally amazing! The layout of the lodge allows guests to go from the bathroom out to the hot tub which is fantastic as i wouldn't want to walk through the whole place getting everywhere wet.
All in all an amazing experience at Avonwood and we will definitely be returning very soon!!!

Fantastic accommodation - 'home from home' with excellent facilities, very clean and modern. The location is wonderful - so peaceful and with partial views over Lake Windermere.

Would highly recommend to family and friends, I believe we will return sometime.

From arrival at the Lodge till the day we left was a totally pleasant experience. The owners house and reception was right next to the lodge which was set in an idyllic setting overlooking Lake Windermere and private surrounded by bushes and trees. The outside area and decking was spacious with patio furniture and an amazing hot tub. The accommodation was of a very high standard and spotlessly clean. Everything was supplied to make your stay comfortable as if staying in your own home. The location was perfect for accessing the lake and for travelling by road to the countryside and many small villages and country pubs and restaurants. In all I would give the Lodge and surroundings a minimum of 20 out of 10.
Date of stay: 13th September 2014
We came to stay at Avon Wood for the very first time, we will return! An exquisite site. Everything we wanted and more, calm, peaceful, tranquil and very clean. An amazing escape! The services on offer were second to none, the site maintenance most focused, an immaculate laundry room of which we only made use of the freezer for some ice packs, but in place a lovely ironing board and iron, and washing machines etc. Our outlook was beautiful, our sited 'van personal and private with easy parking. Lovely presentation, content etc. and so well supported with a factual and informative file of information, most proactive as advised on the feedback sheet provided. Have been 'singing the praises' since we returned home to Suffolk. My husband was brought up in Ulverston/Dalton, so this area is more of a second home, but what a lovely 2nd home to come to! Can only say very impressed, but we are fortunate to know the area and have transport. Will only add that we were left to enjoy the holiday break after the initial introduction in complete privacy, knowing support was a step or two away. Can only reiterate 'Thank you, Avon Wood'

Very clean and everything you need. Only didn't mark a 10 because I was comparing it to a lodge that we stayed in last year which was new. Also I missed the bit about no towels feel this could have been clearer.

Lovely clean comfy cabin with everything you needed catered for. Maybe wifi would have been nice as there is minimal mobile coverage.

Booked at short notice, we know the area but have not stayed in a caravan before. The caravan was in a great spot on the park, was spotless and well equipped - even had Easter eggs to welocme us. Andrew was very helpful as we forgot the towels and he kindly supplied some for our us. Would definitely go back.

Cleanliness was outstanding. Lodge provided everything you could possibly need for your stay. View from the veranda of the Lake was fantastic. Garden area surrounding lodge was well tended.
Absolutely amazing place for a few days away. Really easy to find, loads of lovely walks in the area. You will need to drive if you want to access shops and stuff, but for what we needed, it was everything we were looking for. The kitchen is amazing, we had all the facilities we needed. The bedroom is really lovely and airy, and you have gorgeous views from the terrace area. We will definitely be returning. Thank you for an amazing stay for our first wedding anniversary.
Amazing long weekend, beautiful views and location, private hot tub was lovely, would definitely recommend.
Fabulous holiday. Very secluded and close to Lake.
Went here for my partners 40th birthday to relax , what a beautiful place to stay , very friendly people. The hot tub was fabulous , everything you needed in the lodge was there even down to skewers for the BBQ . Had a wonderful time and can't wait to go back again. The fighter planes flying low over lake Windermere was an added bonus. Couldn't ask for a more comfortable peaceful holiday, would highly recommend to anyone.
Exactly as the brochure described and more. Had everything provided, spotlessly clean & hot tub put the icing on the cake.
Very quiet location, and excellent base for travelling around the Lake District. We plan to return.
what a lovely place to chill out and relax. lodge like home from home.
Great place to stay. Perfect retreat.
As in previous visits; everything to our likeness and already looking forward to our next holidays in june and september next year.
We had a great holiday at Avon Wood. It was just as we had hoped it would be in a beautiful location and only a ten min drive from Bowness. The staff Christine and Andy were helpful, knowledgeable and friendly.
Just perfect! Very peaceful and a beautiful lodge

Located in the Milnthorpe area of Cumbria we love this local attraction.  With an eclectic mix of fascinating wildlife and hands on displays this centre is educational as well as fun.  You can wander around at leisure admiring the exhibits which range from chameleons to computers. Some of the most threatened species are kept at the park as part if international breeding programmes.  Check out their website for the latest opening times and admission costs which are great value for money.  There are discounts for pre-booked parties of 12 or more.

Rydal Mount & Gardens are wonderfully situated between Lake Windermere and Rydal Water offering breathtaking scenery. The home of William Wordsworth from 1813 - 1850 the grand home is now lived in by the poets descendents but parts of the house and grounds are open to the public. Why not take a guided tour and see the rooms where many of the famous poems were written. The gardens are beautiful at all times of the year but in the summer offer a spectacular display of colour. There is also a gallery and a tearoom. Discounts are available for group bookings.

This is an amazing Cumbria attraction well known locally as well as nationally for how close you can get to the animals.  Described as the most interactive animal park in Europe it's well worth a visit if you are staying in the area.  Open from April to end October some of the highlights are the tigers, penguins, bears, hippos and rhinos.  At 2pm during certain seasons it's feeding time so don't forget to plan your day around this so you can watch the animals enjoying their feed.  Look out for seasonal events such as Halloween Zoo Boo (free entry for kids in fancy dress) and The Magic of Christmas.

about 15 Miles
Happy Mount Park has attractions for the whole family including several play areas, a miniature railway, crazy golf, putting green and trampolines, there is also a paddling pool where the little ones can splash around in the summer and a café where the adults can relax with a drink. During the summer months and especially during school holidays live music can often be enjoyed.

This is an award winning Lake District attraction and they have been operating cruisers on Lake Ullswater for over 150 years.  There is no better way to explore the lakes than on water and you could even combine a cruise with a spectacular walk.  For great days out in this region then this attraction is highly recommended and will appeal to couples as well as families.  Corporate groups are also well catered for.

We love this day out in Cumbria where you're encouraged to "take a fresh look".  Some of the amazing animals you will get to see include the only Canadian Lynx in the UK and you will have the opportunity to help their Lynx Conservation Project.  The Asian Fishing Cat is also well worth a look - these cats are known for diving under the water and catching fish!  Other activities include fantastic flying displays and play areas for the little ones...
about 31 Miles
Head for the Bowland Wild Boar park and we don't think you will be disappointed.  A popular attraction in Preston there is so much to do for the whole family.  From picnics, walks and wildlife to experiencing feeding the animals you are sure to have a memorable day out.  Also popular is the kids tractor play area.  For rest and relaxation the cafe is ideal serving hot drinks and snacks with a lovely view over the pond and wildlife feeding station.  The Forest of Bowland has been declared an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
