Frequently Asked Questions
Are pets allowed?
Pets are allowed at Lower Lakes. All we say to guests is that as we have fishing lakes and we are surrounded by farmland the usual livestock considerations must be taken. You should also be aware that there is an additional fee for the extra cleaning and this is £35. Thecleaning charge is £35 per dog/ pet. However, if the lodge you stay in is left clean and tidy then we will refund all but one dog’s cleaning charge.
Nearest pubs, shops, super markets etc?
