    “We had a wonderful holiday - out accommodation was lovely but was let down by a few cleaning issues ( oven not clean and some utensils dirty) There was also 2 blinds broken and some mould at the back of the wardrobe in the on- suite which should have been attended to prior to our visit.”

    Shame because everything else is great, we loved the place and we had a comfortable and very pleasant stay. Would be more than happy to return if these issues were addressed.

The cottage

A delightful ground floor, detached lodge situated in the popular resort of White Cross Bay park, nestled on the shores of Lake Windermere.

Offering superb amenities, this luxury lodge is a perfect base for family and friends to explore the beautiful Lake District with Lake Windermere just a few minutes’ walk away.

This lovely lodge has three bedrooms, one with an en-suite shower room, and a separate bathroom.

The open plan living area is a great convivial space so everyone can be together and has a comfortable sitting area with electric fire, dining area and fitted kitchen with patio doors leading out to a decked patio area with furniture, perfect for chilling out at any time of the day.

Why not amble down to the lakeside and enjoy the magical view across Lake Windermere to the distant fells or try out the marvellous on-site leisure facilities such as the indoor heated swimming pool, sauna, gym and games area for the younger members of your party?

Close by is Brockhole, the national park’s visitor centre, with pretty gardens and a tree-top adventure course.

From Brockhole you can also board the Windermere Steamer and cruise up the lake to Ambleside or down to Bowness-on-Windermere and Lakeside.

Bowness-on-Windermere is a vibrant town with a mix of individual shops and restaurants to enjoy and it also has Beatrix Potter World which younger guests will adore.

If getting on the water is more your thing, it is possible to hire kayaks, rowing boats and stand-up paddle boards nearby.

This beautiful area is surrounded by stunning scenery and within a few miles you can explore the beautiful Lakeland fells and get to see the local Herdwick sheep.

This lodge is ideally placed to explore this special corner of England at any time of the year.
