The property

This delightful lodge on White Cross Bay Holiday Park is situated on the shores of Lake Windermere between Ambleside and Windermere.

This spacious lodge with a large sunny decked area has a wonderful space to relax next to the stream with a lovely open aspect looking out to a grassy meadow where you can spot deer grazing.

This is a delightful spot for a morning coffee, your favourite evening drink or alfresco meal whilst relaxing after the day’s activities.

Inside this spacious lodge you can relax in the comfortable open plan living area which has a kitchen, sitting and dining area which is a perfect space for friends and family to enjoy meals and each other’s company with the patio doors open to bring the outdoors in.

In the park you can wander to the marina and lakeside, enjoy the views of the stunning wonderful Lakeland vista, watch the bird life or have a picnic and watch the lake activities.

Alternatively, enjoy the super leisure facilities in the park such as the swimming pool, gym and playground for younger members or bar and restaurant in the evening which are just a short stroll from the lodge.

Close by in Bowness why not take a cruise on the lake and enjoy a different view of the wonderful scenery or perhaps you may like to try kayaking or hire a row boat?

You also have the Beatrix Potter centre which will delight younger members of your party when they meet Peter Rabbit and Jemima Puddle-duck.

On your doorstep is Ambleside, a bustling centre with water activities, cafés and waterside eateries and shops.

A short drive from here will take you to Rydal water surrounded by stunning scenery and you can end your day with a delicious tea at Rydal Hall and wander around the gardens.

Grasmere and Wordsworth Museum is a short drive away as are the popular destinations of Coniston and Hawkshead.

This area is a walker’s paradise with Troutbeck on your doorstep and close by Kentmere, both quieter valleys with glorious fell walking.

There is so much to do from this location that whatever your holiday requirements this lovely Lakeland lodge is a perfect base for your holiday year round.
