About The Lodge

Badger's Way is our contemporary and luxurious two-bedroom lodge, that's ideal for nature lovers, walkers and those who simply want to relax and soak up the beautiful scenery here. Badgers pass by each evening and with a little patience, you are sure to get an exciting, close up view of them!

The lodge is situated at Limefitt, a 5 star country­side park near Lake Windermere, on the route to Kirkstone Pass and Ullswater. The spectacular scenery here, the well-kept grounds, the incredible beauty and attractions of the Lake District, together with the abundance of wildlife at Limefitt, will make a visit to Badger's Way unforgettable!


This is a light, airy lodge and is fully double glazed and centrally heated throughout.

Badger Watching


Badger watching is exciting and great fun! For the past few years, on our visits to Badger's Way, we have been lucky enough to see one or more badgers virtually every evening. They come whatever the weather and occasionally more than once in the evening. Badgers are creatures of habit so we hope they will continue to visit us for many years to come! The Badger Trust have sent us an information pack, which you may like to read whilst at the lodge.
