New development for 2010, The Lodge in the Vale, near Keswick. Just completed in the heart of the Lake District National Park is the stunning Lodge in the Vale. Located between Keswick and Grasmere just off the main A591, it is in one of the most picturesque locations in the area.

The Lodge has been fitted out in a modern contemporary style. All bedrooms are fully en suite with internet access, direct dial telephones and flat screen satellite TV. Bedrooms are a mixture of double, twin and family to cater for all combinations of groups or individuals.

On entering The Lodge guests will immediatley 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 and bar which serves continental breakfast in the morning and coffees and snacks throughout the day.

Although The Lodge does not offer full meals, 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 - which are available to guests staying at the Lodge.

Surrounding The Lodge is some of the finest scenery 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. The Northern fells of Skiddaw and Blencathra rise in the distance creating the perfect backdrop to any Lake District break or holiday. Its cenral location in the National Park is second to none.

The Lodge has been developed by Lake District Inns and cottages - Derek Sweeney, managing director and founder says:

‘this is a very exciting and prestigious development for us and adds to our ability to cater for visitors to the area in addittion to our existing more traditional properties. It will appeal to customers who want modern contemporary accommodation with flexibility for dining out. It will also be perfect for small conferences, meetings and training courses and has been fitted with the most up to date communication and audio visual technology.

We are really looking forward to welcoming both new and existing guests to what we feel is a unique development in the fabulous Lake District.

The location is perfect for exploring the area, just stopping overnight on a journey to Scotland or travelling South as the transport communications are second to none.
