You can enjoy the beautiful views from the sun balcony which is situated off the communal lounge area.







Our Communal area in the lodge is a fantastic place to relax, unwind and maybe enjoy a couple of glasses of wine either on the sun terrace or in front of the roaring log burning fire.

We offer an honesty bar here at Big Bear Lodge so simply help yourself to a cold beverage or a snack, fill in the form and hand it into Gary or Cassie on the morning you depart to settle up, simple!
