  • "First visit to White Cross Bay, after our holiday abroad was cancelled and we (2 adults and 2 kids, 12 and 15 plus dog) had a great time and will definitely return."

    The lodge was excellent, located nicely in the middle of the site, not far away from the lake and also the onsite facilities, the lodge was large in size, clean and very welcoming, large living area, tv’s in the bedrooms and two bathrooms, one being en-suite to the large bedroom, bedrooms were of good size and there was nothing to fault. We couldn’t use the hot tub on the first evening as it was only 30 degrees, but that is to be expected if the water had been changed prior. The sites facilities were generally lacking in the way of any entertainment, nothing for the kids other than a really small games room and small swimming pool but it’s not what we visited the lakes for so wasn’t an issue for us, the WIFI was very sporadic and this coupled with poor mobile coverage meant it was fun to order via the app in the onsite restaurant\pub which caused some frustration and it would be ideal to have the pay by card\cash option absolve without any “debate” with the bar staff. The site itself was excellent, nice walks into the wood and also along the lake, with very easy access to the water itself for Paddleboards etc, it was disappointing the onsite shop closed at 5pm, even if it was not busy after 5pm for a site without any nearby shops having the shop until 7pm would be better, although we had access t a car so a pleasant trip to Ambleside and Bowness was not a issue. Brockhole was also great place to visit for kids and adults, but most activities were booked although we eventually managed to get the kids onto a few things. The lodge had a few things to address such as the kitchen tap would not stop dripping, the heating would not work but that was quickly fixed by the maintenance staff, and there seems to be a wasps nest above the backdoor in the apex of the roof, but the aspects above did not take away anything from the holiday. The only thing I would change If I was to book again is to book any meals out and activities weeks ahead, but the lodge and site is perfect will be considered in the future.

    Thank you for your feedback, we are delighted to hear of how much you enjoyed your stay in Damson Lodge. The lodge is in a great location on the park and is fully equipped with everything you need. It is great to hear of how much you explored the local area, Brockhole on Windermere is fantastic for all the family but definitely book in advance! We are sorry you were left disappointed with the park facilities, unfortunately this is something outside of our control and we can only send our apologise for the inconvenience caused. We do hope you will return and enjoy Damson Lodge again. Property Owner

  • "I had read quite bad reviews before coming which concerned me greatly."

    However I was delighted with this spacious and comfortable lodge Previous reviews mentioned a dripping tap, loose toilet roll holder rusty blinds and dead plants etc. These had all been put right when we arrived. As some-one who has stayed in about 20 different lodges on White Cross Bay over the years, I'd put this up with the best. The sofas and beds were the most comfortable (very important to us). The decking was a good size and the hot tub good. OK there is no dishwasher or washing machine, but they are not really important to us. The lodge is in an excellent position near the lake, reception and the bar. My grandson, who always comes with us asked if we could book this lodge again, he has never asked that before so it must be good.

    Thank you for your feedback and we are so pleased to hear of how much you and your family enjoyed your stay in Damson Lodge. We take all feedback very seriously and we are delighted you could see we have taken previous feedback onboard and resolved issues brought to our attention. The lodge is not advertised as having a dishwasher or washing machine as the owners have not placed these in the lodge but it definitely something to think about for any future improvements. We do hope you will return in the future. Property Owner

    No washing machine if you were staying longer but this wasn’t an issue as we were only there for a short break. Beds comfortable. Sofas comfortable. Enclosed decking was great for the dogs. Hot tub was a great added touch. they’ve put foliage up and a trellis for privacy from the main road. Great little pub on sight. Staff friendly and helpful at the Main reception. Oven needs a good deep clean as was smoking when cooking but other than that it was was clean, comfortable and we would definitely come back for another visit. A lovely little short break.

  • "Do you remember that hot Easter weekend of 2019?"

    Damson Lodge was a delight from start to finish. The layout works really well, with a well proportioned kitchen, eating and social area, but to be honest, the weather was so glorious, we spent most of time on the deck at the rear of the Lodge, surrounded by plants and bushes. The hot tub is screened off for privacy. We booked 3 Lodges for our large group, with 4 generations of family and all agreed that Damson Lodge was the nicest. The little ones could roam around the house and deck, as the small access gate could be closed and locked. The older ones could sit and relax . Decor was tasteful and calming, and a message to the owners, thank you, we appreciated all those little touches you find in a privately owned property, from cutlery and utensils for every occasion, to books, dvds, etc. We were out and about most days, but White Cross Bay is and attractive location, and well worth exploring from the Marina and into the woods at the rear. There's more to this site than we had time to discover. Would we go back, yes. Would we go back to Damson Lodge, definitely, and can recommend it. What did you enjoy most about your stay? The sunshine really helped. the attractiveness of the Lodge, resort and Lake District. All age groups had a lovely time.....and for me, getting out on the water. What one experience (e.g attraction, walk, day out) would you recommend for our future guests? for more gentile sight seeing - Windermere & Bowness and Ferry. For the more active, Grizdale forest with Go Ape, bikes and segways.

  • "The lodge is perfect."

    It is in a great position, just a short walk from Reception and the Entertainment Complex and an even shorter walk to Lake Windermere. On arrival, we found it clean and warm. It also had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. A dishwasher and washing machine would be a welcome addition. The beds are extremely comfy and the hot tub was fantastic and enjoyed by us all. The park itself is in a great location to explore the Lakes. The staff were all friendly and helpful. We had a couple of minor issues, neither of which spoilt our stay it must be said. The first was that the swimming pool. The water was far too cold. We were told by the staff that the boiler had suddenly broken down, but from reading other reviews it appears the problem has been ongoing for some time. Secondly, we were aware prior to booking that dogs were not allowed inside the bar. Whilst there is plenty of outdoor seating, it is not covered or heated, so it was a bit chilly for us whilst we watched the children play. A covered and heated outdoor area would be a great addition, or perhaps a small area of the bar sectioned off for dog owners. All in all we had a great time and we are looking to book the same lodge again. What did you enjoy most about your stay? All of it! The lodge, park and of course The Lakes were enjoyed by all. What one experience (e.g attraction, walk, day out) would you recommend for our future guests? We loved Brockhole. Lots of activities for all ages.

    The hot tub was bliss, we used it every evening, lovely way to relax with a glass of prosecco. The lodge is a great place, not too far from the lake and not far to the shop etc. The ensuite bedroom was huge, had the added benefit of a shower and the other bathroom had a bath. the kitchen cupboards were loaded with everything you could wish to find, maybe a bit too much as not a lot of room to put food. We had a problem with the combi boiler which was fixed straight away by a member of staff from Lake district lodge holidays. couldn't have asked for more. will definitely book again.

We didn't need anything, the lodge is well equipped with everything you possibly need for a short or long stay. It was a very spacious lodge with plenty of room for us all without feeling overcrowded. The lodge is modern and very clean. The hot tub was great we use it every night during our stay it was even great in the rain. We will be back to Dansom Lodge. What did you enjoy most about your stay? The hot tub. What one experience (e.g attraction, walk, day out) would you recommend for our future guests? Bootle beach if you have a dog. Its perfect for you and your dog if you like to walk miles and see untouched scenery. Its so peaceful and great for your dog to run free. Not much there if you expecting shops and cafes but the only place to feel free from the crowds.

    Mr Andrew BaggaleySep 2016

  • "We had a lovely stay all in all, such a good location and the facilities in the lodge were home from home."

    The only complaint I had was the cleanliness of the lodge we had long brown hairs in the bed, what I can only assume was wax on the floor which subsequently stuck to our feet and the cleaners clearly hoovered around all the rugs and sofas in the lodge as we picked up the rug to find crushed Pringles sweet wrappers and bottle tops not nice after a 6 hour drive to have to clean up after others. The drainage is slow in the baths and sinks but it didn't cause us an issue really. Would love to go back but would like it to be cleaned properly next time! What did you enjoy most about your stay? Facilities and location What one experience (e.g attraction, walk, day out) would you recommend for our future guests? Self drive boats

    Mr Nathan TitchmarshJun 2016

  • "After a fantastic break in the Lakes with Lake District Lodge Holidays last year we returned with friends this year."

    It was even better than last year. The Lakes as usual didn't disappoint the scenery ever changing and always spectacular. We enjoyed a 2 hour boat trip on Lake Windermere and the steam train to Haverthwaite is well worth doing. We also visited Ashness Bridge as it was a favourite place of my husbands late parents and again it is beautiful. There is also a signpost to "Surpise View" and wow it is absolutely amazing. Damson Lodge was an absolute joy. It is done to a high standard and we would definitely book it again. It was definitely a home from home. What did you enjoy most about your stay?

  • "Had a fabulous Bank Holiday weekend at Damson Lodge."

    It was an absolutely beautiful lodge. Brilliant location in the park. Hot tub was a fantastic bonus due to the brilliant weather we had. The whole weekend was perfect. A short drive then walk into Ambleside and a visit to Brookhope just a mere 10 minute walk away. Lovely meal in the on-site restaurant but entertainment left a lot to be desired, just not our cup of tea! Lodge is very well kept, immaculately clean and very, very comfortable. Loads of outside decking made the whole place seem huge which was a bonus. Quiet secluded spot out the back where the hot tub was situated, with a semi-secluded surround. All in all perfect weekend was had by all. Totally relaxing and very peaceful. What did you enjoy most about your stay? Lodge and hot tub with surrounding decking made it perfect What one experience (e.g attraction, walk, day out) would you recommend for our future guests? Brookhope and then further on , Ambleside

    Mrs Jackie GoodacreJun 2016

  • "Everything very clean and tidy."

    It was very light coloured and hard to keep clean when we had been out walking. Lounge was huge and comfortable, good TV. We enjoyed evenings in there. The hot tub was great but we had difficulty getting it to a hot temperature. What did you enjoy most about your stay? Being able to get out and explore. What one experience (e.g attraction, walk, day out) would you recommend for our future guests? Driving down the Wyrnose Pass towards Eskdale.

    Mr Charlie WatermanJun 2016

  • "Wish we could have stayed longer, lovely lodge, could not fault it, very clean, everything you needed was there."

    Beautiful little marina & walks around site. The only thing we were disappointed with is that the pump on the hot tub had broken the day before we arrived but that could have happened anytime & we were well compensated for that. They really tried their best to have it working & a new pump arrived the next day but unfortunately the hot tub was going to have to be lifted up in order to fix it. They did get it fixed on the day we left. What did you enjoy most about your stay? Peace & quiet & relaxation What one experience (e.g attraction, walk, day out) would you recommend for our future guests? The Boathouse Restaurant on site served lovely food & also had entertainment.

    Mr Alan RichardsonMay 2016

  • "Damson lodge exceeded our expectations."

    It has such a homely feeling from the minute you step in the door. Inside and outside is very well maintained to a high standard. The facilities in the lodge are more then ample.

    Miss Jessica WorrallApr 2016

  • "Since having a dog and a family ( 2 boys aged 12 and 15 and a 6 year old cocker spaniel) we have found that it is not always easy to find a suitable break/ holiday that pleases all and have spent the last 6 years going to the same place in Dorset."

    This year we felt like trying something different and were not disapointed with our Damson Lodge. The booking process was easy, the website simple to use, and the arrival information was very comprehensive. On arrival our lodge was very clean and well prepared with the hot tub ready to use. We had everything we needed with lots of extra touches too. We were delighted at the high quality of the fixtures and soft furnishings as we have found in the past that dog friendly accommodation can be rather shabby sometimes! There was plenty of room to accommodate the family and a large enclosed patio area that was great for our spaniel too. The lodge was centrally situated for exploring the lakes and close to Windermere which was convenient for a variety of take always if you wanted a break from cooking. Although the weather was not that great we all felt that we had enjoyed a good relaxing break, had visited some beautiful places, spent quality time as a family and with our spaniel, and had been very comfortably accommodated. We would certainly stay at the Damson Lodge again. What did you enjoy most about your stay? Lodge, hot tub, location What one experience (e.g attraction, walk, day out) would you recommend for our future guests?

    The facilities/utensils was excellent, and truly was a great place to stay -it felt like home. The fact we have a DVD player, docking station, comfortable sofa's large freezer, etc..was unexpected and we wwould definately go back. The Hot tub, what can i say.. it was cold miserable weather, and we had a great time relaxing in the hot tub, and unwinding. It is not a case of if we go back, its actually when!!! We will 100% be going back here, and next time with the children. What did you enjoy most about your stay?

    Mrs Claire RingAug 2015

  • "We had a great week in this fantastic lodge."

    The standard of this lodge was amazing, very clean and everything you could need. However the staff on site, Park Resorts really need to either find a job they enjoy, or take some happy pills. During our week at White cross bay, we used the facilities on site including the on site bar and restaurant, many times. We had to queue for ages as the site was understaffed. We never once saw a friendly face, or was made to feel welcomed. As this was our only holiday this year we expected to feel welcomed. My advice would be use this great lodge as a base to explore the area, in this way you will not be disappointed. What did you enjoy most about your stay? The cabin was great and area fantastic What one experience (e.g attraction, walk, day out) would you recommend for our future guests? Great walks

This property is part of the Lake District Lodge Holidays collection.
From the moment you arrive in the Lake District there is a huge choice of activities and things to see as you take in Britain’s latest World Heritage Site – it’s the only National Park to be recognised for such status.

The property

Damson is a modern and spacious holiday lodge at White Cross Bay, in a great position with the lake and marina about 250 yards away, easy for a wander to the shoreline perhaps with a coffee to enjoy the sunrise or a cool sundowner!

There is a spacious outside deck with private hot tub and a bright open plan living area inside will give you plenty of space for relaxing after a busy day exploring.

The lodge will sleep up to 4 guests in a double en-suite and a twin room, plus an infant in a travel cot and welcomes two dogs.

In a glorious setting by the lake, White Cross Bay sits on the shores of Lake Windermere, with views all around to the spectacular fells.

From here you can hire boats, swim, take a lake cruise, paddleboard or just relax.

Dogs are permitted on a small number of tables in the restaurant.

Note: Some facilities on the park are subject to extra cost such as use of the pool, gym, entertainment, bar and restaurant.

500 yards up the road is Brockhole Lake District Visitor Centre, with its gardens, house, café, restaurant, walks, boats, adventure playground and Tree Top Trek: there’s lots to do!

You’re also just two miles from Windermere village with shops, cafes and pubs, and three miles from Bowness boat landings, where the cruisers come in.

Bowness is a cosmopolitan village with award-winning restaurants and pubs and quirky shops, a cinema and the World of Beatrix Potter attraction.

Three miles in the other direction, head to Ambleside, another bustling town with shops, cafes, pubs and restaurants and of course, walks in every direction.

Two miles north on the A592 is the pretty village of Troutbeck, home to two traditional pubs with log fires: the Queens Head and the Mortal man; Holehird Gardens, and the National Trust’s Townend House.

Further on you climb up to the magnificent Kirkstone Pass, then drop down to Brotherswater & Ullswater.
