  • "Stunning lodge."

    Finished to such a high standard. Clean, comfortable, well located on the park. Perfect for what we needed. Couldn't have asked for any more.

    Thankyou so much for your kind comments. Property Owner

  • "This is a lovely, well equipped lodge in a great location."

    It was very quiet due to being located at the end of a row. We purchased entertainment passes and used the pool facilities a few times. The swimming pool and changing facilities should be bigger for the amount of guests but we still enjoyed it. My only complaint is that the WiFi didn’t worked for our entire stay. There was a smart tv but it was a bit useless without it. I would give 4.5 stars if possible. We would return.

    Sorry you experienced problems with the Wifi, after contacting the site it would seem recent storms were responsible for taking some of the masts down in the Lake District and the site is working to correct this . Glad you loved our Lodge. We work hard as the owners to make sure you have a good experience and a happy holiday as we would want Property Owner

  • "Our party of 4 had the most fabulous time here, it was central to all amenities and local attractions."

    The lodge itself was beautiful, comfortable and everything needed was provided. As it was the end lodge you also felt you had some privacy which was lovely in the evenings/mornings on the terrace. A short walk to the end of the road and you were on the lakeside with all it’s beautiful views! I would highly recommend this stay and will definitely book again if we venture to these parts again in the future….. thank you so very much! Frances and Robin Hussain-shah Yasmin and Zak New

  • "The lodge is located next door to a brilliant activity centre where you can do loads of activities on the lake or on dry land!"

    We walked there in 10 mins. Great location also on the park itself, tucked away so nice and private

  • "Place was great."

    Everything you need for your stay. Dishwasher wasn’t working and front door problem but great stay and would recommend. Unhappy on morning of leaving as the water went off. This was a problem with the site not the owners. We couldn’t wash or brush our teeth. Apparently it went off as they start filling the hot tubs on site creating the water issue. Was very unhappy with this issue as we didn’t have a hot tub to be filled up so should not have had this problem. Suggest you get up super early on the day of leaving before they start filling up

  • "Lovely Lodge."

    Lots of space and well set up. Although on a largish complex, the position of the lodge is good being at the end of the road with nothing behind it, or on one side. We were lucky to find it as a last minute cancellation, and the lady at Lakes Cottages was really helpful.

  • "Nicely set up Lodge."

    Everything you need. Luxury. Maybe the mattresses could be renewed, but that's all! Will book again, definitely.

  • "The cabin was extremely well equipped, and comfortable."

    We had an issue with the dishwasher, and this was dealt with very quickly. Being situated high up on the site meant that it was quiet. The pool facilities were excellent for the children with various activities apart from actual swimming.

  • "A fantastic lodge with everything that a family of 5 needs."

    Having a dishwasher and a washer dryer is also a big plus! The lodge was extremely comfortable and spacious, well equipped and tastefully decorated. Excellent setting, high up and at the end of a row, which was very quiet and had a lovely view over the park. There were plenty of activities for the boys to do; we experienced swimming, water walkers, pool parties and the 2 play areas. It was a shame that the Outdoor n Explore Activities were not being run this week as we enjoyed them last year. We enjoyed Bingo Beats in the Boathouse during the evening too. All the staff were friendly and happy to help. Close enough to walk to Brockhole where there is also plenty to do and you can catch a boat there to take you to other places on Lake Windermere; we visited Wray Castle. This is the second time we have visited White Cross Bay and we have already booked to come back again next year.

  • "Great lodge in a fantastic location - at the end of a row so a relatively private pitch."

    Lovely inside and out, spacious and good facilities in the kitchen. Contact with both Sykes and the lodge team was easy and helpful. Park has good facilities for a family using it as a base to explore the Lakes; 2 small playgrounds and a good pool. There was some confusion about when we could swim as different sessions were not well advertised initially, but once we'd worked that out we had good times swimming with our children. Reasonable food in the boat house, and a handy shop - although the stock is somewhat limited in it's range. Overall a good week away that we'd recommend and do again.
