"Was a great lodge to stay in."
Bedrooms was a great size and such comfy beds. Main living space was ideal and having the table and breakfast bar helped with meals for adults and children. Heating was on tap, hot tub was great, with daily visits to check it. Only found the music centre on the 2nd day but was a good find.
Thank you for your kind feedback. We are pleased that you had an enjoyable stay. We hope to welcome you again. The Lake District Lodge Holidays Owner Relations Team Property Owner

"The lodge was a little unclean- the table had dried food on, the table chairs and couch had bits of food and what looked like confetti on."
The fridge also had food in the bottom.
"A light outside of the hot tub would be great."
We came in December and it was dark by 4.15pm, slightly dangerous when there was light and children in the hot tub. Boiler fixed and working perfectly.
"We had a great stay and it’s a beautiful lodge but the boiler was broke and even when we pressed the rest button we couldn’t get the hot water on."
We and 4 kids with us and 3 adults and we wasn’t able to bath the kids whilst there because the water was freezing. Really should get the boiler replaced before letting it out especially in the winter months. Apart from that it was a great stay.
"Boiler kept on tripping out, so no hot water / heating."
2* mugs missing Need to clean behind the doors. But a beautiful property in a beautiful location very well equipped and furnished. Just need to fix the boiler!
"Lovely place with a restaurant that did nice food good swimming pool for kids."
Windemere village was lovely and surrounding areas lovely for day trip.
"Accommodation was lovely,we had problems with the boiler and struggled to get hot water for showers."
Thank you for your feedback. We will ask our Maintenance Team to look into the issue with the boiler. Thank you The Lake District Lodge Holidays Owner Relations Team Property Owner
"Great location, fab lodge just like home from home, would definitely like to return."
Only criticisms were boiler had problems having to reset it all the time when shower was switched on so shower was cold & some radiators were cold. Also the cushions on the outdoor furniture were wet through so unable to sit out when returning to the lodge, maybe an idea would be to ask housekeeping or guest to put cushions into the storage provided after use. Hot tub was great & really enjoyed our stay & will be looking at returning in the future thank you
"We travelled as a party of 6, youngest 11 months and oldest 77!"
We have had a fantastic weeks stay. It’s the second time we’ve stayed at White Cross Bay, the first in Lakes Lodge. We would definitely return (and have already tried to rebook but unfortunately it is fully booked for the time we would like next year). The position of the lodge is brilliant with a large decking area and a fabulous hot tub. Added bonus of having 4 bedrooms. We only had a couple of criticisms: the cleanliness of the living area upon arrival (there was a lot and I mean a lot of peanut shells underneath the cushions) and the floor was quite dirty under the couch with pieces of Lego, assuming from previous parties who have stayed (probably more noticeable having a baby crawling round), this was however easily rectified as we just cleaned it up ourselves. The other issue was the boiler for hot water. We had to continually reset for hot showers, we managed but I expect it would even more of an issue if staying during the winter. Despite this a fantastic stay and as already mentioned, we would definitely return.
"The lodge was very clean , and had everything you needed, The boiler needed ..."
The lodge was very clean , and had everything you needed, The boiler needed resetting every time you needed hot water , it was a pain when somone was in the shower you would have to get out to reset the boiler ,I was woken up many times though out the night as the jacuzzi was right by the master bedroom window , I would be woken up by the jacuzzi motor sounds ,
"We enjoyed our stay and would like to return."
However, the lodge was not without its faults. We had to contact the maintenance people twice due to the tv was inoperable, hot water was consistent. We got very concerned about the up keep of the Hot tub. We had 2 visits from the hot tub maintenance people, one checked the temp, the other was hoping to just do the same but we asked him to check the ph levels and chlorine as I am aware that this needs doing on a daily basis being a hot tub owner! (Still not sure this was done) Overall the site was kept beautifully and we made good use of the marine facilities, Ian was very helpful and look forward to booking our next holiday at White Cross Bay.
Thank you for your feedback. We are sorry you had issues with the TV signal, as this is looked after by an external company, we did have to wait for them to attend. Please accept our apologies for the inconvenience caused. We have checked with the hot tub contractor who has supplied us with evidence of the daily tests and checks carried out. Sometimes they may attend when you are not present as they only need access to the hot tub. We do hope this helps and we hope you will return in the future. Property Owner
"The lodge was very spacious, clean and tidy."
The settling was hard to find at first as no signs when you get closer to the lodge. The lodge had everything you needed being away from home. We had an amazing few days at the lodge and location was very easy to get to and explore nearby towns by bus. The only one thing that hindered our stay was having restrictions on the hot tub use. We are very respectful people when staying in theses lodges, but not being able to use the hot tub early morning or later in the evening restricted how many times we could use it. We will book again with Sykes but maybe on a different site in the UK as we so enjoying visiting them. Thank you for a fab few days in the lodge and the weather made it all so enjoyable
Thank you for your comments. We are pleased to hear that you found the lodge to be spacious and clean. We appreciate your comments about the use of the hot tub. The rules regarding the hot tub are put in place by White Cross Bay Holiday Park to ensure that other guests are not disturbed during their holidays. We hope you return to the Lake District again.

"Lovely lodge, beautiful decor and great facilities."
We had a great time. Would recommend. The only problem we had was finding it, the name of keswick court 3 is not on the lodge. Needs better signs. The boiler tripped out, but we reset it fine. Overall it was fabulous. We we come again!
Thank you for your comments, it is lovely to see that you enjoyed your stay. We take your comments regarding the signage. We will ask our Maintenance Team to take a look at the boiler. We hope to welcome you again. The Lake District Lodge Holidays Owner Relations Team Property Owner
"Lake Lodge was absolutely perfect."
Modern, Spacious, Immaculately Clean, and well equipped. We could not fault it. Lots of Space inside and out. Decking area is spacious with quality outdoor furniture, hot tub clean and ready to use, and great being able to heat up to 40 degrees (as some hot tubs we have used in the past are restricted to how hot they can go). We had a great time at Lake Lodge it exceeded our expectations, would definitely look to book it again. The Site was great, facilities were great and the location was perfect for exploring the Lakes. Definitely a 5 star stay!! Thank you.
