  • "This is my fifth visit to white cross bay, and this lodge didn’t disappoint."

    What a beautiful spotlessly clean accommodation, the beds were so comfortable, excellent large fridge freezer and dishwasher. Lovely location next to the fairy woods( as we call them) and very near the lake. Would have no hesitation in recommending this lodge.

    Hi Audrey, Thank you so much for your feedback. We are really glad you loved your stay at Wansfell Lodge and we look forward to welcoming you back in the future! Property Owner

  • "The Lodge was a bit difficult to find because the numbering is rather wacky but once found we were very happy."

    The place was spacious, well furnished and had everything we needed. Instructions for the dishwasher would be helpful and the limited number of tv channels was a bit strange but the view from the deck was spectacular. We had a wonderful stay and would definitely recommend the Lodge for anyone wanting to explore Lake Windermere and surrounding areas.

    Hi Brenda, Thank you for your feedback, we are glad you enjoyed your stay at Wansfell Lodge! We have taken on board the feedback regarding the dishwasher. We provide a map via email to show where the lodge is located on the park as we understand there are a lot of lodges on the park which may cause confusion! Property Owner

  • "The beds are lovely and comfortable and great wardrobe storage."

    The lodge is light and airy with a nice layout. The only negatives were cleanliness. The balcony doors were filthy, I though the outside balcony looks uncared for, it would be good to have the addition of a sun umbrella and relaxer chairs. The balcony and chairs had not been brushed. We did find the cushions on our 3rd day. There was a lot of dog hair and a bone under the settee. There was a mop brush but no water bucket or hoover. The bedroom blinds were dusty. The cleaning issues inside did not affect my stay , I just thought it should be mentioned so you can make sure the place is cleaned with a bit more care and attention. The ouside comfort would have improved my stay. Especially in view of the price for a short weekend. Generally a well presented property and a|I would stay again.

  • "I fell in love with the lodge it’s absolutely lovely, the view from the patio onto the lake is breathtaking, the location is fabulous and the site down by the lake is really beautiful."

    I will definitely book again, hopefully for a longer stay next time. I’d highly recommend this lodge to anyone looking for a really relaxing stay with great views and local towns a stone throw away. Very family and dog friendly.

  • "Good property in good, clean condition."

    The only disappointment was the result of no info about the facilities, especially the dishwasher and the heating controls - with no instructions it was very difficult to control these complex pieces of equipment! Also we were held up by traffic jams on the M6 which resulted in our arrival being in the dark! A simple sketch map would have made it easier to locate Wansfell Lodge, and could supplement the arrival info package.

    Hi Patrick, Thank you for your feedback. We are glad you enjoyed your stay at Wansfell Lodge. Instructions regarding the thermostat are located in the welcome booklet we email guests before their arrival. In future we will provide a physical copy of this information to be located within the lodge. Property Owner

  • "Lovely lodge, nicely designed,great site and comfortable beds."

    Warm and cosy. Needs blackout curtains in bedrooms. Wifi doesn’t really work so no Netflix but that’s the whole site not owners fault. Great communication with owner when needed. Would stay again and recommend.

The property

Resting on the ever-popular White Cross Bay Holiday Park near the iconic Lake town of Windermere, Cumbria is Wansfell Lodge.

This wonderful, dog-friendly lodge benefits from fabulous on-site facilities including an indoor pool, spa bath, bar and restaurant, adventure playground and amusement arcade as well as two well-appointed bedrooms; perfect for families looking to explore the Lake District National Park.

Be welcomed by a homely open-plan living space where you unwind on plush sofas in the sitting area, whip up tasty meals in the fully-equipped kitchen and dine together while planning your itinerary for the rest of the trip.

If the sun is shining, step outside to the wrap-around decking to delight in evening drinks or an alfresco affair.

When the sky darkens over the park, wash off the day’s adventures in the shower room ahead of catching your rest in the twin or king-size bedroom.

If you can tear yourself away from the fabulous on-site facilities, head into the heart of Windermere where you can enjoy a variety of watersports on the town’s iconic lake; try your hand at kayaking, paddle boarding or even just admire the breath-taking views on a boat tour.

Children will be in their element as the town also houses The World of Beatrix Potter with exhibits about the writer and animatronics of the beloved characters; continue the literary theme at the National Trust site of Hill Top which was once Beatrix Potter’s home or head north to Grasmere to explore the museum dedicated to the lake poet Wordsworth.

The national park is also brimming with a myriad of walks and trails suitable for a range of abilities; head for Stock Ghyll Force to marvel at the impressive 70-foot waterfall, amble through Holehird Gardens to admire the array of beautiful flora or ascend to Orrest Head Viewpoint for unique panoramas across Cumbria.

Adventure awaits at Wansfell Lodge.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £250.
