  • "Loved the cabin and hot tub!"

    However points we had issues with include the en suit shower and washing machine which were not working. This was really disappointing as a family of 4. These home from home comforts were part of what drew us to this cabin. When I couldn't place an order in the restaurant due to either the wifi or app not working, I was told by a female bar staff to keep trying. I wish I could remember her exact words as they were quite patronising. This was also really frustrating as I had been trying for about 15 minutes and had a hungry 3 year old to contend with. The manager who helped with allergy information was great however. My husband was also felt there was no flexibility in the choice of sky sports in the bar when he enquired. It was a shame to also see some litter about the resort.

  • "We really enjoyed our stay & thought the lodge was in a good location."

    Plenty of spare bedding & towels. Lots of kitchen utensils & domestic items (iron/airer/etc). The washer/dryer wasn’t working which was a shame because we have 2 young children & a dog. Would have been useful for trying hot tub towels/swimwear. There were things provided which we hadn’t necessarily expected (washing up liquid/antibac spray/tea towels/cloths/kitchen roll) but not things which we would have expected (spare bin bags/toilet rolls). A more accurate list of what’s provided would be useful. We’d have had no problem in taking these things but we ended up taking things we didn’t need & not taking things we did need. Would definitely stay here again & would absolutely recommend!

    However I have just looked at rebooking for the same time next year and it has went from £600 to £1200 for the same lodge. That’s really off putting that you can inflate your prices like that.

    Thank you for your comments. We are delighted to hear you enjoyed your stay and are looking to rebook for next year. Whilst noting the price is higher than expected, perhaps worth looking out for the many special offers that we put on throughout the year. Fir Tree is a great place to stay and it will be a pleasure to welcome you again. Property Owner

    The biggest problem was with the on site restaurant which turned into a 2 hour nightmare resulting in no food as we had family staying on site we had planned a nice meal for our golden wedding so I was quite upset when it turned out this way we have been before and encountered no problems

  • "Such a lovely place, it really did exceed our expectations."

    Its in a lovely location, right near windermere lake which is beautiful and I'd definitely recommend booking a boat tour. Perfect to take the dogs as there is a lot of walks to be done with stunning views. The losge itself is roomy, equipped with everything you need, if I'm being pucky the only thing was the en suit showeroom was mouldy and did smell musty.

    Thank you for your fantastic feedback, we are so pleased to hear of how much you enjoyed your stay in Fir Tree Lodge. The owners go to great lengths to make sure the lodge is a real home away from home. Thank you for making us aware of the slight bathroom smell, we will pass this to the cleaner for their information. We do hope you will return to enjoy another stay. Property Owner

    A bottle of wine was on the table when we arrive, a huge thank you for that it was lovely. The hot tub was very welcome but we couldn't get the jets to work properly but that didn't matter as it was just so nice. The bedrooms are perfect as are the two bathrooms. The lounge is a really good size and for the kitchen is perfect with all you need in there. As an ex head chef it suited me down to a tee. Eat out on the site the food is good.

  • "Thankfully we had booked our break at the same time as other family members as our Fridge stopped working while we were out, We had to take our food to our families lodge and keep it in their lodge and keep going back and forth."

    I did try to ring the help numbers provided but after being on hold for over 20 minutes each time I just accepted to do things this way to save stress and further waste of time and to deal with the situation when home. Luckily our families oven stopped working so we were able to repay the favour and not feel like we were putting on them too much. However I do feel to have to do this on our holiday was totally ridiculous and really not good enough at all. Other than that the lodge was very presentable, clean, tidy, comfortable and modern. The resort itself was excellent other than one member of staff giving us incorrect information about swimming, I believe he was night staff.

    Was a holiday to refresh the mind. On arrival the staff at the holiday site were amazing and location of the site was perfect for travelling around the lake district. The hot tub was lovely touch and nice and clean. The hamper was a nice welcome to the lodge with a taste of the local foods. It's really hard to fault this lodge atall. The only slight niggle I would say is the positioning of the lodge for sun light. Unfortunately the decking with the hot tub is very secluded which was nice in the way of it feeling private however you do lack the sun shine in the evening.

Issue with the park - my wife is disabled and uses a mobility scooter, we found it difficult going around the park due to the speed humps which cover the whole of the roadway, could do with having a smooth bit on the edge for scooters/wheelchairs/pushchairs etc. also the bins were constantly full, so bags left all over including dirty nappies!

The hot tub was fantastic, nice and private too so you aren't on show to passers by!!! The only thing we would mention especially for families is that the layout of this lodge means that there is literally no living space in the lounge area for kids to Play etc. That being said there is a nice large decking area outside and the site itself has a park and games area.

I have stayed in lodges were you don't even get that!! We were a 20 minute walk into Windermere and 30 min walk to Ambleside so for us the location was ideal with having a dog. We did pay 15 additional charge for the pool and gym facilities but the pool was quite small and very busy with children. But I suppose if you get at the right time it is ample for a leisurely swim.

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

Fir Tree is a delightful 2 bedroom holiday lodge situated in a quiet, woodland location at White Cross Bay with private, gated decking and its own hot tub for the ultimate relaxing break.

Sleeping four, plus room for an infant in a travel cot, it’s a delightful base from which to explore the beautiful Lake District.

When you get back after your busy day out what better than to relax in the hot tub and simply chill out on the deck, enjoying the countryside all around you.

The large open plan indoor space has plenty of room for all your gear and space to watch TV together, prepare food and chat.

White Cross Bay is in one of the most lovely settings on the shores of lake Windermere, with jetties and a marina and views of the magnificent fells all around.

On the Park itself, there is a bar and restaurant with outdoor seating area for dogs, picnic area and children’ play zone.

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 main A591 is Brockhole Lake District Visitor Centre, with a great way to spend a day with gardens, house, café, restaurant, walks, boats, adventure playground and Tree Top Trek: there’s lots to do!

You’re also just two miles from bustling Windermere village with shops, cafes and pubs, and three miles from Bowness boat landings, where the elegant cruisers come in and you can hop on a boat trip.

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

All holiday parks are owned and managed by a separate company to ourselves. Lake District Lodge Holidays has no association with the owners of these parks or responsibility for the provision of services they offer. At certain times of year, there maybe a reduction in those services, which is outside of our control.

Commercial vehicles, caravans, camper vans, Hen or Stag parties are not permitted onsite. Dogs must be kept on leads at all times and are not be left alone in the lodges at any point during your stay.

You will be staying on an operational holiday park, which means work may be undertaken from time to time by the park owners during your stay. Although Lake District Lodge Holidays will always try to inform guests in advance if something may impact on a stay and if we have prior knowledge. We cannot be held responsible or accept any liability for park operations of which are outside of our control and which we have no knowledge of.

Hot Tubs

For the comfort of other holidays guests we request that noise is kept to a minimum. Usage of the hot tub is between 10am and 10pm only. If you are found to breach these timings then you may be asked to vacate the park with no call for a refund.

All hot tubs are maintained to strict industry standards and HSE guidelines by separate qualified independent contractors on behalf of the property owners. This includes changing the water between guest stays and checking the water condition on a regular basis.

Whilst every effort is made to have a hot tub ready for immediate use by the arrival time stated, this may not always be possible. In such cases the hot tub will usually be ready to use later that day unless otherwise advised. In such cases no compensation or refund is payable unless the hot tub is faulty.

Information about using a hot tub safely is provided at all lodges with a hot tub and on a prominent notice near the tub. All hot tub users should wear an appropriate bathing suit.
