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

Ghyll Lodge is a modern and spacious lodge providing a welcoming retreat at White Cross Bay on the shores of Lake Windermere, sleeping up to 5 guests, well-appointed, modern, bright and airy with a pitched ceiling and skylights.

Enjoy a relaxing stay in the open-plan living space, with plush modern seating to relax and unwind in front of the TV, perhaps whilst preparing your evening meal and the open space means everyone can chat together and get involved.

Wander outside, and explore the large deck with private hot tub, complete with outdoor furniture, table and chairs, perfect for dining al fresco then step into the hot tub, and relax your aches and pains away after a day exploring the fells and villages.

Ghyll Lodge is found on a quiet cul-de-sac location toward the rear of the park, and is a short walk from the main clubhouse with ‘The Boathouse’ bar and restaurant, takeaway, beer garden, picnic area.

There’s also a children’s play area, multi-purpose games area, charming woodland walks, and of course the marina and jetties with fabulous lake views.

White Cross Bay is in a fabulous location, on the shores of Lake Windermere, with views across the water and to the surrounding fells, you are literally in the heart of the Lake District and Ghyll is just a short walk to the water’s edge.

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 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 from Ghyll Lodge, 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.

A wonderful place to make special memories with your loved ones.

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.

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.

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.
