  • "The holiday home was brilliant!"

    It was exactly as described. The only downside I could find was the sofa sits in front of the radiator so the living room tends to stay cold while the rooms heat up really quickly. There was a guide folder but it had basic information and no details about how best to work the heating or how to switch on the boiler. It was guess work but we got there eventually and it didn’t effect us at all. I would highly recommend! Everything was clean and comfortable.

  • "Facilities overall are good."

    Fully equipped kitchen. Great! Lodge was clean. Small bedrooms. Bed linin and towels all good. Facilities to clean should you wish. However: NO WIFI! NO WIFI! NO WIFI! I wouldn't have booked had I known. Made my son very unhappy. The listing stated WIFI therefore I feel it was miss-sold. Dreadful! I have visited campsites with wifi. Added to that no streaming service. I will visit this site again due to its great location by the lake but definitely not this lodge.

    Thank you for taking the time to send your feedback after your recent stay at Lancashire Rose. We are sorry to hear of the issue with the wifi at the lodge. We have updated the description to advise guests that the wifi can be intermittent as its uses White Cross Bay Park wifi. We will contact the owner to ensure a better solution moving forward. Thank you once again for bringing this to our attention. We hope to see you again in the near future. Property Owner

  • "A lovely lodge and a wonderful stay during the February half-term."

    The lodge has a nice view of the hills and part of the lake. It is also a short walk to the lake too. Overall, would certainly recommend, the only negative would be a lack of wifi even when it is advertised as available on the website.

  • "This is probably the worst stay I had."

    The Wifi was awful, it was just a disaster.

    Thank you for your feedback. Unfortunately the park WiFi had been damaged due to Storm Arwen on 26th November which brought down a lot of trees within and around the park. I'm sorry the lack of WiFi made your stay a disaster and hope the beautiful views from the lodge were something of a compromise. Property Owner

    Very well equipped and very comfortable. The only problem was there was no wifi at all. This is advertised on the website but not available at all. We asked in Reception and they stated they do have wifi problems.

  • "I received two instructions, one which asked me to check-in at reception for an access code, yet the access code was already given to me so I had to call to check this."

    Following this arriving to the cabin, there was no wifi I was advised that there is a hub which needs to be turned on and that I will be contacted with where to find it, all I received was a text message with the name of the wifi and password. I called again to ask where the hub is as nothing was coming up, I was then told there is no hub and I advised that I was just told there is one and that I would be contacted, I was then told I would be contacted again and was then told there is no hub and it's the main wifi that covers the whole park and that it is intermittent but keep trying, there was no wifi for the entire weekend. The towels had stains on them.

  • "The property is nice and sufficient."

    However, we came with the requirement to work and trust that wifi is sufficient as advertised. However when we were there, no wifi was detected at all. We called customer service many times and was promised to be resolved but nobody got back to us. We were told to go the centre but wifi is also very weak and kept cutting out. We could not get the work required done so was in a fair bit of unnecessary stress. We were not impressed by customer services.

The property

With its superb location just one minute from the shores of Lake Windermere, this well-appointed Lakeland lodge is perfect for a family with up to two younger children.

The lodge is well-presented throughout and offers an excellent outdoor sitting area and access to all the benefits of White Cross Bay with its bar, restaurant, shop and leisure club.

From the private parking space, steps lead up to the raised decking and into the lodge itself.

The open plan sitting room is tastefully furnished with welcoming sofas and chairs arranged around the delightful flame effect fire.

A family dining table is a wonderful spot for sharing delicious meals, chatting and perhaps enjoying a board game or two.

Doors open from here onto the decking outside with patio furniture perfectly positioned for soaking up the sun.

The lodge’s kitchen is modern and well-equipped, with a breakfast bar and array of contemporary appliances including a wine fridge, all important dishwasher and washing machine.

The bedrooms are at the rear of the property with one double bedroom with TV and en-suite cloakroom, and a twin room with children’s twin beds.

A large family shower room comes with powerful shower, basin and a second wc.

White Cross Bay is highly regarded with its range of 5 star facilities including a children’s play area, amusement arcade, indoor heated swimming pool, sauna and gym.

It also has a useful shop, although with the villages of Ambleside and Windermere being just down the road, there is plenty of choice when it comes to stocking up on groceries, browsing the shops and enjoying the many cafés, bars and cosy pubs on offer.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £200.
