About Tony Mole

I recently moved back to Cumbria after spending 8 years in the South of France where I set up and ran a property business. Before moving to France I was owner of a graphic design studio and worked for many national and international clients. Ex-rugby player and keen on all sports including skiing, mountain biking, rowing, walking I love the great outdoors so am lucky to have rental properties in both the south of France and the Lake District. We hope you enjoy them as much as we do!

Tony Mole purchased this cabin in 2012

What makes this cabin unique

Our guests enjoy free unlimited use of a brand new health club just 5 minutes from the lodge, facilities include large gym, indoor pool, sauna, steam room and hot tub.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Wonderful 5 days break! Pine lodge beautifully done out & made our stay very comfortable & relaxing. All in all a wonderful stay – Thank you!!" - Owens

"Lovely 4 days break in a nice peaceful setting, fantastic accommodation which had everything we needed and more. Thank you!" - Nicklins

"We had a really brilliant stay at Windermere Lodge. The lodge was more than we could have ever expected and made the perfect home from home. More than anything the kids loved the indoor pool and tennis court. The location was great and the 4 inches of snow on Easter Sunday was just the icing on the cake! '' We''ll be back! Lawsons

"Pine lodge & location amazing! fantastic week exploring the Lake District including walks, boat trips & nearby villages. Would highly recommend Windermers Lodge & location – Thank you" - Smiths

We were delighted with our lodge it was so warm and comfortable. We were amazed at the size of the lodge as we had expected it to be similar in size to a caravan!!! Far from it, it was beautifully decorated and furnished and was so central to many places we didn't need to get the car out for several days. The amenities on site were also great and we made sure to go for a swim every day and also usedd the restaurant at the week-end.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for taking the time to write a review following your recent stay at Windermere Lodge we do appreciate feedback from our guests. Delighted to know you found the lodge so warm and comfortable and bigger than expected ! All our four lodges are double glazed and centrally heated - you just never know what to expect with the weather in Cumbria ! We chose the lodge for its great location being close to all the best places to visit in the Lake District, many within walking distance as you discovered. Glad to hear you took full advantage of the many superb on site facilities including a few lengths in the pool everyday !

Great place!

  • 5 of 5

This is a great base from which to see some of the many lovely sights of the Lake District. But more than that, it's a lovely home, very comfortable, and has nice facilities on site - swimming pool, gym, restaurant and bar. We had a minor issue during our stay and the owner couldn't have been more helpful in sorting it out. Then again he is a rugby man - enough said! Great walks and boat trips. The best places to eat were the Sun Hotel, a short walk down the road, and the restaurant on-site was also very good, and child friendly.

Owner's Response: We really value our guests' feedback so it was very pleasing to know Andy and his family had such a great time in Windermere Lodge. There are so many things to do and see in the immediate area and all the children love the indoor heated pool.
