  • "Lodge was as described, a very comfortable stay."

    Only negative was the Wi-Fi connection was not good and unfortunately that meant the smart tv had no connectivity to Netflix etc which was disappointing. Very enjoyable few days.

    Thank you for your feedback and I am pleased that you enjoyed your stay at Luca’s Lodge. We have been aware of the poor wifi on-site so we have now installed a mini router into the lodge and it supports all streaming services including Netflix, bbc iplayer etc Property Owner

  • "On arrival we thought the lodge was very good."

    One of the reasons for booking this lodge was it was a smart tv so in the evenings we could settle down to a Netflix film or use the catchup facility but the first night which was Friday it just wouldn't connect to wifi, my phone and tablet did but not the tv. First thing the next morning we contacted the agents for the lodge,someone came around that morning but still no joy, they said they would contact the owner ,this was Saturday, by Thursday still no joy, that afternoon another man arrived, we were told yet again that they would contact the owner as he also said the remote control would not connect to the tv and it would most likely have to be replaced , so by the end of the week we had got nowhere. I think when you do not have direct contact with the owner it is not good. We also had some dog hairs on one of the chairs. The double bedroom door would not shut. The ensuite shower room door was jamming and very difficult to open. We found the single beds were not comfortable, the double bed was great. The heating was great as the weather was very cold. Had a nice week there, but on the long winter evenings it would have been nice to have more than a basic TV.

    Thank you for your feedback and we have noted how poor and sketchy the wifi can be in pockets of the Lakes, so we have now installed a mini router into the lodge and have connected the smart tv, so everything is now working properly. Hope to see you again Property Owner

  • "Luca's Lodge is really lovely, everything you need to enjoy your stay is catered for, lovely decor and the central heating is great, a couple of missed bits with the cleaning, nothing major though, my elderly parents did struggle with the parks outdoor lighting not being adequate in the evenings."

    Overall an amazing accommodation in an incredible location, would definitely book again.

    Thank you Clare, I will report the evening lighting issue to the site team Property Owner

  • "The lodge was just perfect."

    Lovely position on the park, close to the entertainment complex and a lovely short walk to the lake. It was very clean & comfortable and it had every you could have wanted and more. This is our 4th stay at White Cross Bay and Luca’s lodge is the best by far that we have stayed in. We will definitely be booking again. The owners have done an outstanding job to make it a home from home for the perfect relaxing break. We will see you soon. Thank you again for making it the perfect holiday.

    Good site. Might consider looking at electrics as we had 2 power cuts, one fixed by trip switch, other required maintenance man to attend. He came very quickly.

    ! We booked Luca's lodge for my birthday break away and my goodness, it was the best birthday i've had!! The Lodge was just beautiful and the campsite was friendly, clean and just breath-taking that it was right on the edge of Lake Windermere!! We had looked through the photo's and details online of the lodge and was so excited to go, with good expectations... When we arrived, our expectations were met and more!! It really was fantastic to open the door to such a clean, spacious, warm and inviting lodge (which we called our home for 5 days!). It was like home from home, especially with all the added extras and finishing touches such as lanterns in the hallway, books on the shelves and an abundance of things for our dog! It really was just lovely. To have the use of a washing machine and dishwasher also was just fabulous. I had packed all winter clothes as the lakes is usually a windy and cold spot but the whole week was such fab weather that I needed to rewash my 1 set of 'summery' clothes!! The bed was ever so comfy and everything really was just great. Thank you for such a wonderful break away. We will definitely be back in the future if we ever visit the Lakes again and will recommend Luca's Lodge to many friends and family! It made it all the more special for us that Luca and our dog Banjo almost look like twins!! Crazy Cockers are just the best! Thank you once again.

  • "The lodge is spacious and comfortable for a family of four."

    ..even has two bathrooms. It has everything you need with a beautiful furnishings, plenty of utilities like a washing machine, dishwasher and huge fridge freezer. GreAt balcony with outdoor furniture...some pads or seat covers would be even better but that's understandable that they aren't there as they would be hard to clean between guests under covid worries. Beds are comfy and each bedroom has its own bathroom. The park itself is clean and in a great spot for accessing other places...we did days out at Grasmere, Bowness, Ambleside....all within ten minutes. Brockhole visitors centre is a ten minute walk where our twins enjoyed the treetops experience and another day we all hired paddle boards...GreAt fun. Further afield...only 30 mins was Grizedale Forest...did the red walk with fabulous views up Carron Crag. An hour away was Keswick with the wildlife park and Whinlatter...literally tons to do. I run trails and fells....spoilt for choice in the lakes but it was a family holiday so I stayed local. Turn left out of the park...up the road 100yards....cross over and you can run up the bridleway and take in views above Troutbeck and the paths to Ambleside...go further afield and you have so many hills, paths and many adventures. On the park itself you can relax from a day out by having a snooze on the grass by the marina late afternoon. Loads of folk brought their own boards and kayaks and you can access Windermere straight from the edge of the park itself at the marina. We're definitely going to stay here again.

  • "Luca's Lodge was exceptional."

    Truly five star facilities with everything you need for a very comfortable stay. Lovely touch of a welcome pack with a bottle of wine, milk. coffee and tea and artisan bread. The lodge was spotlessly clean, furniture was very high quality and the beds extremely comfortable. The keys were in a coded lockbox outside which meant getting access was very straightforward. The lodge is on an excellent Parkdeans resort with an excellent clubhouse. Staff were very friendly and helpful. A great base for the Lake District and a short drive from Windermere town and Bowness on Windermere. I would heartily recommend this lodge to anyone.

    I do appreciate that you have taken the time to post this wonderful feedback about Luca's Lodge and I am so pleased that you enjoyed your stay last week. Hope to see you again in the future, Best wishes Angela Property Owner
