  • "It was a lovely place to stay."

    The lodge was very open and the interior was simple and cute. Really enjoyed our stay, the check-in, and check-out process was quick and easy with no hassle. The only downside to the stay was the cleanliness of certain parts of the lodge. On arrival, there was an open half-eaten crisp packet left in the hallway, and the plates and bowls in the cabinets had bits of food stuck to them we went to use them. Other than that, everything else was lovely.

  • "The site at White Cross bay is well set out, peaceful and well maintained with helpful staff."

    Coniston No 9 is an exceptionally well equipped Lodge, clean and VERY comfortable. We enjoyed a lovely holiday and the grandchildren loved it too, especially the play areas and lakeside access, including paddling in the lake. It was our first Lodge experience which we intend to repeat, hopefully at No9.

  • "The lodge was larger than it looked in images i."

    E. patio doors both out from living area and dining area to decking, Whole lodge was very clean and tidy. Location wise the site was perfectly situated for travelling around the area. Only a ten minute walk up to the visitor centre where we did the high tree top ropes, and you could hire kayaks etc for on the water. Only 15 mins in car to central Windermere and same other direction for Ambleside. We ended up just using the bus to get around as parking was very busy at all the car parks. With bus stops just outside the holiday park this was ideal, however the cost of the buses was expensive. Only discovered on last day that you could buy a weekly ticket that would have saved us money. We couldn't fault the lodge or site. Was not too busy and even strolling up to the club on site was nice. Or in the evening walking down to the water front of the park to sit was very relaxing. Would definitely book again and recommend.

  • "The lodge was very well equipped and felt like home from home."

    We especially liked the decked area with seating and BBQ. The children fell in love with the dog foot stool (which they named Coco) and wanted to bring it home with them

  • "Arrived to find a beautifully equipped lodged that was immaculately cleaned and well positioned within the site."

    The staff were extremely polite and helpful. The facilities were good, however, some were unavailable, like the small gym for example, due to Coronavirus restrictions, but this was not totally unexpected. The location of the park was perfect for visiting all the best places in the Lake District and we were incredibly lucky with the weather during the period of our holiday. Only gripe was the poor WiFi and weak mobile signal, which made it difficult to plan things, or make bookings during our stay. Would definitely recommend the site and would use White Cross Bay again for any future stay in the area.

    Just writing you a little message as the freezer would not close it’s as if the suction seals no longer were working, so we defrosted the freezer and kept it left turned off until it is fixed other than that everything was perfect with the lodge

    K. but we work abroad for most of the year. Once we landed at Manchester we headed straight to the Lake District and Coniston 9. It was a wonderful welcome home-comfortable and cozy with a touch of luxury! The park is very relaxing and was perfect for our two children with the swimming pool. Coniston 9 has everything you could possibly need and we were very sad to leave! Our only wish is that we had booked for 2 weeks instead of one! We will be back in the future. Thank you!

  • "We had a really good stay here."

    The lodge was well equipped and comfortable. Where it is situated on the site is quiet and peaceful but close to reception where there is a pub, convenience store, swimming pool and small gym. We had three sunny days when we opened the doors onto the terrace and enjoyed the sunshine. On the less sunny days (!) it was still nice to sit inside the living area as it is very light and bright. The site is a short drive from Bowness where there are shops, ferries and the Beatrix potter attraction. It is also close to Windermere and you can walk to Brockhole. A great place for family holidays.

The property

This delightful detached ground floor lodge is situated on White Cross Bay holiday park, which is set on the shores of Lake Windermere, close to the small village of Troutbeck Bridge within the stunning Lake District National Park.

This lovely lodge is a great base for families with a number of facilities on-site, such as a swimming pool and gym, along with plenty of places to visit within reach.

Upon arrival at your log cabin at White Cross Bay you will see a large, raised decked area with furniture and gas barbecue and then it's into the light and airy open plan living area.

The living area is modern in style with a well-equipped kitchen, comfy sofas and a dining area, along with a TV and the property has WiFi.

There are three bedrooms all with fitted wardrobes and chest of drawers, with the master king-size double boasting an en-suite shower room, with the other two bedrooms being a twin and a bunk room.

Completing the accommodation is a family bathroom.

Via two sets of patio doors you will be able to reach the decked area, so why not open the doors and let the outside in.

The decked area is the perfect place to enjoy a drink in the sunshine, perhaps after a day enjoying the facilities on-site.

If you can tear yourself aware from White Cross Bay, you will be able to take a ride on the lake cruises across Lake Windermere that can take you from Bowness to Ambleside and then onto Lakeside, where you will find the Aquarium of the Lakes.

There are a number of other family attractions in the area, such as the National Trust owned Hill Top, once the home of Beatrix Potter, and of course being in the middle of a National Park walks and cycle routes are in abundance.

A charming Lake District lodge.
