  • "To whom it may concern, I would like to bring to your attention my disappointment with my recent stay at the Oakwood Lodge, Windemere which was purchased through the Sykes Cottages Website."

    Unfortunately, this property was described as a lodge which it clearly isn’t. It is a form of static caravan with cladding which looks like a lodge. First impressions of the caravan were that it was acceptable, however this quickly changed when we spent the first few hours in the caravan with our 6-year-old and 9-month-old children. There was a dirty dishes in the cupboard, and we could not find a brush and shovel anywhere within. I did however find a mop which was filthy and unsuitable for use. Despite my wife washing it twice on a hot wash in the washing machine it was still unusable. This resulted in us having to use baby wipes to clean the mess on the floor. Which in turn meant our 9-month-old was restricted to the travel cot and highchair which was also unclean and unhygienic. The straps were covered in food and other detritus. The blind in the twin room was broken. It would go down but would not go up. As were both blinds in the living room, one had to be manually moved along due to the control stick being broken off, the other had the control stick attached but was missing key fittings and not held safely captive. The fridge was a really poor fit and would not shut unless it was lifted into position. The toilet seat in the main bathroom was loose therefore anytime you sat on it, it felt like you were on a fairground ride. There was also a crack on one of the floor tiles and the tile itself was wobbly. I did note that the proprietor was aware of the crack in the bedroom wardrobe mirror. For as nice a feature the hot tub was it in full view of the veranda on the neighbouring caravan. Maybe I was doing something wrong, but I could not get the decking outdoor lights to work, and I also noted that there was a broken spar fencing beside the hot tub. It should also be noted that the end drainpipe next to the living room was disconnected and clogged with weeds, twigs and moss. Critically though was the lack of Wi-Fi at the accommodation. Our welcome note stated that Wi-Fi was supplied by the site, however this Wi-Fi was very weak, slow and unable to penetrate into the property. Wi-Fi was only accessible outside the property. For a 4-star accommodation I would have expected our own Wi-Fi within the accommodation. In conclusion I was not impressed with the money that I spent for the service we received. This break cost my family £914, and I was very disappointed. I look forward to you response/explanation to these small issues I found Regards Graham Gulvin

    Kick board in the kitchen loose, crack in the mirrored wardrobe and a few other bits needed some attention but only minor and easy to resolve things. It’s a very spacious cottage and spotlessly clean and the hot tub was fantastic the issues we had wouldn’t put me off staying there again we enjoyed our break there.

  • "Lovely property."

    In need of some tlc. Starting to look a little tired, doe not need much money spent to bring it back to 5 star. Fix master ensuite mirror lighting. Sort bathroom sink drainage out as drains very slow and hard to rinse out after a shave. Kitchen doors need adjusting. Kick board in kitchen needs attached. Dishwasher needs fixed in place as when door is open it all leans forward. Apart from that it's lovely. Would use again.

    Thank you for leaving a review and bringing a few things to our attention. We shall follow up on all you have said to make sure the issues are addressed. Thank you, and we are pleased you otherwise had a lovely stay and would use the lodge again. Property Owner

  • "Stayed October half term, excellent location and very clean lodge, hot tub was clean and ready to use as soon as we arrived, no issues at all with the accomodation, would definately recommend, but as the resort is managed by Parkdean who seem to have serious organisation issues with the leisure club (swimming) as one person says that you have to book and another person says that it is 'first come, first serve', so only used the pool once in 5 days."

    Having to order drinks and food at the bar/restaraunt on an App is a pain as wifi is so hit and miss. Would 100% stay again at the lodge, absolutley fantastic time, even though the weather was not the best we made the best of what we had.

    Thank you for your valued feedback. We are glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay in the Lake District. The holiday park is owned and managed by a separate company to ourselves so the leisure and entertainment provided on the park is out of our control.

  • "WiFi is not accessible in this lodge."

    We tried numerous times but always failed to get a connection. If you step outside onto the decking you get connected but it drops the connection frequently. Basically don't expect to get on the internet if you are staying in this particular lodge. Also a few issues with facilities in the lodge itself which we reported to maintenance - no knob on the main oven so unable to turn it on to cook anything - don't know why it wasn't reported by the previous occupants! Shower doors in ensuite have worn out runners so impossible to close one of the doors smoothly. Both issues could not be rectified during our stay due to having to order replacement parts. Lodge itself is comfortable, hot tub is great. Lodge only has dark coloured roman blinds on all windows except patio windows so during the day it is a case of no privacy and daylight or privacy and darkness. Slight issue with people cutting through down the back of the lodge to get to caravans in another area. On site shop has basic essentials but a bit on the pricey side.

    Thank you for your feedback, we are pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay. Thank you for bringing a couple of points to our attention and we are sorry we were unable to resolve these for you during your stay. The WiFi is complimentary and is provided by the park, it is completely outside of our control and we can only apologise for the inconvenience caused. We will pass your comments to the park management for their information. It would be our pleasure to welcome you back. Property Owner

    Thank you for your comments following your stay to Oakwood Lodge. Noting you found some crisps on the floor, we can only say we are sorry and we shall speak to the cleaning company responsible. It is most unusual for this lodge to receive such comments and we are sure it is a one off. Thank you for letting us know.

  • "The towels provided for showering weren't really adequate, we're not big people but the towels were too small."

    The bedroom and bathroom doors were extremely squeaky and need oiling, if you needed the loo in the night you were worried about waking everyone up. Also people were cutting through from caravans at the back of the lodge which spoilt our privacy as they'd walk past the bedroom and lounge windows. If these things we're sorted it would be a 10/10 lodge. We were extremely disappointed that we weren't made aware of the need to book a slot to use the swimming pool and that all activities needed to be pre booked, as we weren't park Dean guests we weren't able to book before we went which meant there was no availability by the time we arrived. We were disadvantaged having not booked through Park Dean.

    Thank you for your feedback and we are sorry to hear the towels were not ideal for you and your comment regarding the doors. We will take this onboard for future guests, thank you for bringing it to our attention. We are sorry the position of the lodge was not what you expected, as advised, the lodges are located on a holiday park. We will pass your comments about the facilities across to the park management, unfortunately this is something outside of our control and please accept our apologies for any inconvenience caused. Having said that, we do hope you will return for another stay. Oakwood is a very popular lodge that guests return to year on year. Property Owner

  • "Overall we enjoyed our weekend, but it could have been better."

    Alot of comments on other reviews mention the lodge decor being out of date. I found it was pretty good to be honest but the showers were a problem. The family bathrooms shower head kept dropping which meant showers took twice as long and were difficult when the younger children used it. The ensuite shower door was unhinged and therefore couldn't be opened without a fight. I reported both whilst there but no one attempted to fix them. We couldn't leave the decking doors open as there was no way of holding the blinds back. With young children that was just an accident waiting to happen. Also all of the blinds had the safety clips on them except the children's bedroom. The place you would expect to find them. Other then those issues the lodge was lovely, well stocked kitchen equipment, comfy beds and lots of storage space for your belongings. The site it's self was nice, lots of sign posts. We ordered takeaway from the site restaurant, the food was lovely but they got the order wrong both times and could here the staff being rude about other customers.

  • "My wife & I, along with out 2 miniature dachshunds recently returned from a 10 day break at Whitecross Bay, staying in Oakwood Lodge for the 4th time in 5 years."

    Oakwood Lodge is positioned in an excellent location, tucked away at the very end of a cul-de-sac, so it's very quiet. Our 4th experience of Oakwood Lodge is a little mixed & although it provides a very homely & warm feel the decor & some of the furniture could do with upgrading, as this has not changed since our 1st visit, therefore things are looking a bit tired. This is a shame because Oakwood once held a Diamond rating due to it's high quality finish, which was the key factor in our returning, however we feel that the previous high standard has slipped somewhat. That said Oakwood Lodge was clean & tidy & provided comfortable accommodation for all, especially the bed in the main bedroom which is very comfortable. The kitchen provides all the mod cons, although we did require a new toaster, which Lake District Lodge Holidays replaced soon after reporting the broken original & the Hot Tub is great for relaxing in following a days walking. We will be returning to Whitecross Bay next year & it would be nice to stay at Oakwood again following some much needed TLC. What did you enjoy most about your stay?

  • "The lodge is in a small cul de sac, so it's nice and quiet, the hot tub is virtually secluded, The decor, size and layout is very good."

    We put the heating on of an evening and the hole lodge was very warm and cosy. The hot tub was a lovely bonus and just what you need after a day of long walks. If I had to fault it, I would say the pillows and quilt in the master bedroom were quite flat, if they replaced them with some new fluffy ones, the bedroom would look far more inviting. Could also do with a bath mat in the ensuite, The leather sofas are reclining and very comfortable, it's just a shame that through wear and tear there are some rips in the material. This aside, we found the lodge a clean, warm comfortable place to stay and would not hesitate staying there again. I would recommend without hesitation. What did you enjoy most about your stay?

    There were a few bits and pieces around which I did notice on other reviews which hadn't been addressed. I did let Lake District Lodge Holidays know of an issue when we first arrived and they were very helpful and got it sorted quickly. I know we paid a lot more because it was school holidays but I do not feel it was value for money. The washing machine/tumble dryer was useful but the door didn't close properly so on the first attempt we set it and went out for the day and it hadn't even started! The location of the lodge is good, very quiet. There isn't very much going on in the evenings at this site (compared to others) and we were expecting a bit more. However, it was nice to be able to have some early nights and relax and not feel like we are missing out!

    However, it has now become Old, Tired, Weathered and in need of some essential maintenance. The exterior requires reprotection and the decking is in drastic need of pressure washing and at the moment could be classed as dangerous. The master bedroom carpet is badly stained and should either be deep cleaned or in fact replaced. There are broken blinds in the single bedroom and the main bathroom WC pedastel is extremely loose on the floor. The main bathroom shower hose is kinked, loose and needs replaced.

Once inside the lodge you wouldn't have known it wasn't house as it is so well built. Ill be honest and say its probably a little too expensive than what i'd normally pay but seen as tho she was 30 i didn't mind.

    The accommodation very good but just needs attention to detail to make it that little bit more special as a few things were broken and not quite as clean as we'd hoped on arrival.

Look out for the wild Otters around the lodges amazing

  • "It was a little difficult to navigate around the site at first but a helpful member of staff found us wondering and guided us there!"

    The Oakwood lodge was in a nice quiet location with privacy for the hot tub. The inside was beautiful a real home from home, very clean and tidy. Not a bad word to say about this place, i have already recommended this to many people :) What did you enjoy most about your stay? Felt like home from home What one experience (e.g attraction, walk, day out) would you recommend for our future guests?

  • "A very enjoyable relaxing expeience in a pleasant location."

    The scenery and walks were fantastic and what better way to come back and relax than getting into a lovely warm hot tub. Our dog really enjoyed stting out on the decking, which was very secure, so there was no way she could get out and go off exploring! What did you enjoy most about your stay?

    Mrs Jo HodgsonMay 2017

  • "We did have a lovely time in the lakes but we were a little disappointed with our stay."

    The hot tub was out of use on the first night as they had changed the water that day. We were only there for 4 nights so it did feel like we had missed out. There was also no extra toilet paper which we thought was a bit odd so had to get our own. The heating and hot water also kept cutting out near the end of the week. The lodge itself was lovely, we just felt some of the essentials had been a miss. What did you enjoy most about your stay? The location What one experience (e.g attraction, walk, day out) would you recommend for our future guests? The mortal man walk

    Mrs Sandra MartynApr 2017

  • "We stayed here at oakwood as a couple and with our dog for a weekend break away and we had the most amazing time."

    It really was a perfect romantic getaway. The lodge itself is a really good size and has all the ammenities you could need - from a dishwasher, washing machine, full cooking appliances/cutlery to board games and dvds for entertainment. We also found the lodge very clean and tidy, Maybe a bit cold on first entering, but this soon warmed up with the heating on. One of the best parts was the hot tub.. just so relaxing. It was the best way to spend our evenings after some long walks out. It was a good temperature, easy to work and looked beautiful lit up at night. It was also really nice that the hot tub was sheltered from view of others, so privavcy was always maitained. Finally, just a brief mention about the area - the most beautiful landscape i have seen. The lake district is so clean and undisterurbed, with beautiful views all over. We took some lovelys walks up to wansfell pike and over to ambleside near by - you wont be disapointed, the views from the top of the hills were absolutely breathtaking.. We will deffinately be looking to return again and maybe even invite some friends or family to join this time. What did you enjoy most about your stay? Just getting away from everyday life, the location was so peaceful and tranquil. Also te hot tub was especially relaxing, the best way to relax after some long walks What one experience (e.g attraction, walk, day out) would you recommend for our future guests? Deffinetly go on some of the local walks. There are so many to choose from. We did a couple of long walks and saw some amazing views of the lakes - they can be long and tiring but so worth it for the beauty of the landscape and environment.

    Mrs Rachel WilsonMar 2017

  • "This is the 2nd time myself and partner have stayed at White Cross Bay - we absolutely love the Lakes and couldn't wait to return for a three night stay for the New Year festivities."

    We had a two bedroom lodge but only used the main bedroom which had the en-suite. One opinion I'd like to point out is the bed wasn't the comfiest we have stayed in....although that could just be us? Oakwood was lovely upon arrival....very spacious, heating had been put on and there was a Christmas Tree which I thought was a nice touch. We didn't use the hot tub on the first night, but we did need to ring the helpline (which we didn't do til 11pm) and when we woke the next morning I had a txt response from lake district lodge holidays and an engineer was due to be with us before 10am that day which was fab service. The hot tub was amazing, we made full use of this once our queries had been answered. The only negative feedback I can give is the cleanliness of the lodge...we found crisps left on the floor under BOTH the sofas in the lounge. These are recliners and we had to push them back slightly so they didn't hit the coffee table. We also came across crisps on the floor in the 2nd bedroom (twin room) - we were only using this room as storage for our bags so it didn't bother us too much. I also had to wipe down the breakfast bar as there was food stains all over that....again not ideal. I would like to think this was just a one off. Overall we had such a lovely stay at Oakwood and would definitely consider returning to this lodge in the future. 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? Nice walk over to Windermere - about an hour or so

    Miss Sally HughesJan 2017

  • "We stayed for 4 nights over Christmas and from beginning to end the whole experience was excellent."

    We cannot recommend Oakwood Lodge highly enough, it is beautiful! You won't be disappointed. What did you enjoy most about your stay? The luxurious and spaciousness of the Lodge and the beauty of its surroundings. What one experience (e.g attraction, walk, day out) would you recommend for our future guests? There's too many to mention! Just explore, there's so much to see and do....the scenery is pretty much breathtaking wherever you go in the Lake District.

    Mr Peter BarryJan 2017

  • "Our family really enjoyed our break, lodge was fantastic and in a great location."

    Would highly recommend to friends and family What did you enjoy most about your stay? Comfort of the lodge What one experience (e.g attraction, walk, day out) would you recommend for our future guests? We enjoyed cabaret evening

    Mr Andrew VincentDec 2016

  • "We choose Oakwood and the lake district from a list of other locations and lodges due to how amazing the place looked, the hot tub and the lakes as we have never been there before."

    I have to say it was close with a few other places but we made the jump and went with Oakwood. A few weeks before our stay I noticed there were reviews from previous people who had stayed (should have looked at these before booking) and the last review wasn't great so I was pretty concerned as Oakwood isn't the cheapest lodge out there. I called lodge holidays and to their credit they were very good and assured me everything that was mentioned in the review was being investigated and sorted out/fixed. So our stay, both my partner and myself were very pleased. The hot tub was one of the main selling points for us and we were disappointing it is no longer sunken (as the pictures show) but saying that you are still very private and the hot tub itself is great! The actual lodge itself is amazing, very clean, really nicely laid out and it was all very pleasant. There were a few stuff marks on the walls but we wouldn't have noticed them unless we say it on the review first. There was even Sky Sports 1 which made my day and a Christmas tree which made my partners day! The park is situated pretty well too, you have a 10-15 minute walk to nearby villages or a local ferry port which takes you further out across the lakes. The view around the lake district is something else, at times it was breathtaking! If there was one bad point I would say for me it would be the bed, I personally didn't find this very comfortable and if I was the owner I would perhaps look at this but saying all that my partner found it fine. All in all Oakwood and Lodge Holidays were excellent, couldn't really fault it. We have already spoken to a few people about potentially coming back within the next year and this time maybe bringing some friends along with us! What did you enjoy most about your stay? The Hot Tub, so nice to sit in and relax! It has different settings which include colourful lighting. What one experience (e.g attraction, walk, day out) would you recommend for our future guests? We tried to get out as much as possible, a trip on the lake is probably a must. Great views and some nice villages to visit along the way!

    Mr Phillip AllenDec 2016

  • "We have been staying at White Cross Bay for several years and know the site and facilities extremely well, but this is the first time we have stayed at Oakwood."

    I was very concerned having read some of the previous reviews, but the team at Lake District Holiday Lodges reassured me all the maintenance issues had been resolved so all we had to do was look forward to our Holiday. Oakwood is definitely one of the bigger lodges and is more spacious than others which squeeze in a third bedroom using the same foot print. Upon our arrival the central heating was On and the Lodge was very clean. Yes there are a few marks on the walls from previous visitors scraping luggage against the walls but you can't expect the owners to decorate between every guest. The Hot Tub in the pictures is no longer as shown and must have been recently replaced with a Newer unit which now sits on the decking rather than being sunken. Thankfully the owners have supplied a set of steps to assist with getting in & out; thankfully because of the location of the Lodge, Privacy is not an issue. The Lodge itself has everything you could possibly need for a relaxing holiday with your family or as a couple and we are now looking forward to our return visit next year. What did you enjoy most about your stay? The location of White Cross Bay is perfect for those days spent in Town getting some much needed Retail Therapy or for putting your boots on and heading off on to the Fells What one experience (e.g attraction, walk, day out) would you recommend for our future guests? Whether it is your first time to the Lake District or your Veteran, it is always worth visiting Bowness and sitting alongside Lake Windermere

    Mr James StevensNov 2016

  • "Lovely lodge, but let down in some areas: Dirty marks on the walls Cables hanging down from fireplace and TV (easily fixed with some conduit) Main blinds on the right in the living room are too long and drag on the ground so don't tilt correctly Front room left small blind not operational Floor tiles in bathroom feel like they're not stuck down so clink when you walk on them Top cover bedding in main bedroom had stains on it on arrival!"

    ? Way too much chlorine in the hot tub, has caused a nasty rash on both of our legs. We used the hot tub for 15-20 mins a day? What did you enjoy most about your stay? Site was nice, but the lodge itself was a little tired and the hot tub although lovely wasn't as nice as it could have been What one experience (e.g attraction, walk, day out) would you recommend for our future guests? Lake Winderemere

    Mr Roger CatchpoleOct 2016

  • "We have started in the oakwood twice now first time was really good."

    But this time oakwood is falling to bits. The gate lock is hanging off. Outside lights dont work. Cooker hob not working.correctley. Bathroom floor tiles are loose Toilet seat is round but the toilet is square. It smells damp. The walls are scuffed Unfortunately we will not be staying again. I expect the condition of the building to be in good condition when paying this amount of money. This was not the case. What did you enjoy most about your stay? Walks What one experience (e.g attraction, walk, day out) would you recommend for our future guests? Na

    Mr Paul GrahamSep 2016

  • "This is an all round fantastic Lodge."

    The only minor point I would raise was the actual location in that although it is a lovely quiet spot, it receives very little sun. Other than that --Highly Recommended!! What did you enjoy most about your stay? Getting good value for what you pay for!! What one experience (e.g attraction, walk, day out) would you recommend for our future guests? No particular experience but the whole of the Lake District is always extremely enjoyable.

    Mrs Joanne HughesJul 2016

  • "The lodge is lovely, but could do with the bed linen ironing and a proper clean up."

    It was smaller than we anticipated. The hot tub us great, looks like a new one and ready on the first day for use. Would stay on site again but for the price will paid for this lodge I think we'd look at alternatives. What did you enjoy most about your stay? Company we were with What one experience (e.g attraction, walk, day out) would you recommend for our future guests? Great Swim!

    Mrs Vikki NewbonJun 2016

  • "Checking in was quick and easy, our lodge was tucked away at the end of a culdesac, which was so peaceful and private."

    The hot tub has a screen around it so again very private. The lodge was well equipped and very clean, although we thought there was a bit of a smell of drainage in the main bathroom. As there were only myself and wife, we only used the ensuite bathroom. What did you enjoy most about your stay? The quietness and peacefulness, just what we went for. What one experience (e.g attraction, walk, day out) would you recommend for our future guests? We did the sail and dine on a private yacht, we had afternoon tea, was a wonderful experience and our hosts Veronica and David were so friendly, felt we were with friends.

    Mr Jay WardleMay 2016

  • "The park itself is a great location and central for the Lakes."

    It was easy to book the lodge and details were sent out covering everything we needed to know. We had one issue with the hair dryer not working but this was replaced straight away when we phone the customer service line. The front door lock stuck but again this was sorted very quickly. The accommodation itself was great, plenty of cupboards and space for the three of us. They had provided everything we needed. Lovely cottage and lovely location. The Lakes are beautiful. What did you enjoy most about your stay? Relaxing lovely part of the world. What one experience (e.g attraction, walk, day out) would you recommend for our future guests? Boat trip on the Lakes to see everything from the water side.

    Miss Louisa CaineApr 2016

  • "My family have stayed in many caravans and lodges within the UK, we always go to Florida for our main holiday but like to stay within the UK for short breaks."

    Oakwood Lodge I must say was the best accommodation we have stayed in within the UK, there was nothing missing, it was a home from home, for the first time we felt so relaxed away from work and did not want to leave, my children also fully enjoyed their stay and did not want to leave. The lodge itself was decorated to an excellent standard from the kitchen, living room and bedrooms, even the roman blinds were to an excellent standard, the outside areas again were excellent the size of the decking area was ideal, the spotlights in the floor and roof was an added bonus and at night all lit up was amazing and I have a lovely picture of this which I have shared with friends and family and lets not forget the HOT TUB BRILLIANT, we spent many a good time in there but followed the rules which were displayed. I have shared our experience with many people and again just this morning with one of my managers and have recommended they look to stay here. As we are not going to Florida in the summer this year and are going for Halloween we looked to book Oakwood for my summer shutdown but looks like it is booked as we would have loved to return then even for 2 weeks. 5 stars from us What did you enjoy most about your stay? The Lodge was decorated to an excellent standard inside and outside, the HOT TUB and having Sky sports on the 3 TV's What one experience (e.g attraction, walk, day out) would you recommend for our future guests? Relax at night in the Hot Tub with the spotlights all on

    Mr Jonathan BellMar 2016

  • "The cabin was fantastic and was exactly as described on the website, unfortunately our entire weekend was ruined due to storm Desmond which ment the water was knee high on the camp site, all facilities on site closed due to lack of electricity and we lost power in our cabin Saturday afternoon the one bit of good news was when the night warden came and rescued us and took us to another cabin elsewhere on the site would definitely stay again but maybe in the summer next time!"

    Mr Martin AndertonDec 2015

  • "The lodge was everything & more than we expected."

    Our granddaughters were delighted especially with the hot tub. There was everything we needed inside the lodge . It is very well equipped. The furnishings are lovely. Beds very comfortable.

    Mr Neil EdwardsSep 2015

  • "The lodge is immaculate."

    I thought the photographs looked special but it exceeded my high expectations. Everything you could ever think of is provided within the lodge from hair dryer to a washing machine! The lodge itself is very private which was nice as no one is over looking you whilst getting in and out the hot tub. Away from the lodge the holiday park seemed very pleasant and quiet although we didn't really use the facilities. The team at lake district lodge holidays did themselves proud, providing me with a welcoming text, a phone call to check everything was going as planned and plenty of emails with useful information including where local shops are etc. In summary the weekend couldn't have gone any better and we will be certain to return in the near future. 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? Water Sports on Lake Windermere

It is only a short walk from the bar and pool and up at the end of a quiet row which is perfect however it does not get much of the sun. In summary a very good break at Oakwood with no hitches whatsoever. What did you enjoy most about your stay? Everything What one experience (e.g attraction, walk, day out) would you recommend for our future guests? Easy to travel around all the villages nearby

    Mr Derek DarrochJun 2015

    The lodge is top class, it's like a home from home & has all the mod cons & amenities that you need. Whitecross Bay itself is a delightful site set in beautiful & tranquil surroundings. There's a club house, swimming pool, restaurant & gym and your only a mile or so either side of Ambleside & Bowness so there's always plenty going on to keep the whole family entertained. Can highly recommend & will definitely return. What did you enjoy most about your stay? The lodge What one experience (e.g attraction, walk, day out) would you recommend for our future guests?

  • "Stayed for a long weekend during late March with my husband and 6 month old baby boy, we were so impressed by the standard of the lodge."

    It was like a home from home and we were so comfortable. The customer services was first class from lodge holidays, the smoke alarm battery started bleeping right outside my sons room just as we put him to bed and we called the help number, someone was there to sort it within 15 minutes! The hot tub was amazing, such a treat! And the location of the lodge was in a quiet corner of the site, very peaceful. My only slight criticism is that the high chair was still a bit 'sticky' from the last user, everywhere else was immaculate. Would definitely like to return next year! 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? The Rattle Gill cafe in Ambleside, best cakes I've ever tasted!

Park Rules and Operations – White Cross Bay

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.

Any issues relating to a stay at a privately owned lodge should be reported back through Lake District Lodge Holidays as the park are not responsible for managing the lodge or booking for private sublet guests during their stay.


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. Usage of a hot tub is at a guests own risk and Lake District Lodge Holidays accepts no liability for anything which may happen to a guest as a direct result of using a hot tub.
