  • "We took mum for a weekend away she's had disabilities and the lodge was absolute perfect."

    The quality to detail was amazing and absolutely spotless. Nothing was to much trouble for Nick our host and actually messaged us while on the park asking if we needed anything to just contact him. Location was also brilliant travelled to Windermere Ambleside and Keswick. We will definitely be returning but this time fetching the dogs as everything was catered for them

  • "Beautiful Lodge, on a great site, in a perfect location for exploring the Lake District."

    Well equipped and spacious enough for a family of 6. Additional outdoor decking area was great too, perfect to let our dog roam and in summer would be great for relaxing and eating outside. Marolyn, the owner was a great host, going above and beyond. She made sure we felt welcome, answered any questions immediately both before and during our stay, even sent a message wishing us a safe journey home. Needless to say we thoroughly enjoyed our stay, and will definitely return.

  • "We had such a lovely time and Marolyn is so lovely and good at keeping in touch."

    Even suggesting weekend events that were on - very sweet. It was a shame that the holiday park reception was not as good as we were expecting but that is definitely not a host issue. The home is beautiful and the beds are so comfortable! It is in a fabulous location, especially with the stream running under the front of the house. It is lovely that they are dog friendly and my golden girl (golden retriever) Bella had a lovely time.

The property

This delightful lodge on White Cross Bay Holiday Park is situated on the shores of Lake Windermere between Ambleside and Windermere.

8 Waterside Wood features a large, decked area with an open aspect looking out to a grassy meadow where you can spot deer grazing.

This is a delightful spot for a morning coffee, your favourite evening drink or alfresco meals whilst relaxing after the day's activities.

Inside this spacious lodge, you can relax in the open-plan living area, which has a kitchen, sitting, and dining area which is a perfect space for friends and family to enjoy meals and each other's company with the patio doors open to bring the outdoors in.

As the night rolls in, choose from three well-presented bedrooms, including a king-size with TV and en-suite shower and two twin rooms, both with TVs.

In the park, you can wander to the marina and lakeside, enjoy the views of the stunning wonderful Lakeland vista, watch the bird life, or have a picnic and watch the lake activities.

Alternatively, enjoy the super leisure facilities in the park such as the swimming pool and playground for younger members or bar and restaurant in the evening, which are just a short stroll from the lodge.

Close by in Bowness why not take a cruise on the lake and enjoy a different view of the wonderful scenery or perhaps you may like to try kayaking or hire a rowboat?

You also have the Beatrix Potter centre, which will delight younger members of your party when they meet Peter Rabbit and Jemima Puddle-duck.

On your doorstep is Ambleside, a bustling centre with water activities, cafés and waterside eateries and shops.

A short drive from here will take you to Rydal water surrounded by stunning scenery and you can end your day with a delicious tea at Rydal Hall and wander around the gardens.

Grasmere and Wordsworth Museum is a short drive away as are the popular destinations of Coniston and Hawkshead.

This area is a walker's paradise with Troutbeck on your doorstep and close by Kentmere, both quieter valleys with glorious fell walking.

There is so much to do from this location that whatever your holiday requirements, 8 Waterside Wood is a perfect base for your holiday year-round.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £150.
