We’re proud of what Gearstones has to offer. As a committee, what our guests have to say makes the work we do to keep the Lodge and Cottage going even more important.

“Just wanted to say that me and my walking group had such a fabulous weekend in the lodge. Absolutely loved the work done on the lodge since I last visited.
The new toilets and showers upstairs and the back lawned garden area are absolutely stunning. Thanks again, hope to book with you again soon.”


“Many thanks for the use of Gearstones Lodge over the weekend. It was a perfect venue. We had an amazing time at Gearstones and the ladies are still talking about it.”

“It was a great holiday at the Lodge.
We all had a wonderful time and enjoyed it a lot.”


“3 peaks, 24 miles, 12 hrs – we did it!…
and had a view from every peak.
Lovely Cottage. Thank you”.

Chris & Fi

 “The weather was wet, The heaths were misty
But all in all, it all looked pretty.
The trip was fun, Even with no sun
We chilled out with tea and a bun.
We played Monopoly, and drank some beer
And in the morning the sky was clear.
So off to Ingleton, for a ramble around,
Here LISTEN! It was sound. xx”.
