    We only had 1 problem with this excellent lodge, which was the Jacuzey outside, on the first night I never had a wink of sleep because the Jacuzey was running all night this was next to the double bed's headboard, this never stopped until 7am in the morning, I called Sykes help desk in Chester who arranged for it to be turned off as we had no intention of using it, we looked for the isolator but could not find it, it turned out to be under the cover to the tale and chairs,

    I had an amazing time definitely would come back the only reason why the cleanliness isn't perfect it's because there were a few cups that needed cleaning and the outside table needed a good brush with the Broom because of the leaves and it seemed it hadn't been moved in a while but no one's perfect would definitely come back again

  • "We are just back from staying at Squirrels Snug, White cross bay, and would like to raise a complaint."

    First of all, on arrival we made a complaint as the property had a vile stale drains smell. Complaint was acknowledged and somebody was supposed to attend. This did not happen. On Saturday we had a Customer service call to say is everything resolved. We advised no, and were told somebody would be with us within 30 minutes. NOBODY yet again attended the property. Smell remained and was disgusting, we feel from the ensuite bathroom. Surely your cleaners should have reported this ? This continued all weekend, and nobody attended the property. This is not satisfactory. The accommodation has many cobwebs, the lamp in the twin room was filthy, and down the sides of the curtains also, this is not acceptable standard for a property that costs so much for 3 nights. Sunday morning we woke to no heating or hot water so could not wash, and minus 2 temperatures, After calling several numbers we eventually had a call back and an engineer was sent. He was a very nice man and did fix the problem. However late afternoon we had the same issue, although this time we did have hot water. Security came to support and then the engineer came back to make sure were okay. Also please note, there are bulbs out in the lounge, there is a shower head in the main bathroom that does not fit to anything as it is broken too. Having stayed at various lodges here over the years we were very disappointed with the lack of support, and although when we spoke to someone, they seemed helpful, it was very often not delivered on. We have always been more than satisfied with the cleanliness and never had issues. The vile smell in the lodge was still not fixed when we left this morning, and nobody attended. We spent a small fortune on candles etc to try and mask the smell. Can you please review the issues and advise feedback at your earliest convenience. For a payment of £621 for 3 nights we would expect that this to be spotless and well maintained. We would expect a stress free holiday which this certainly wasn’t, and did not expect to spend so much time chasing numbers etc to try and get issues resolved. When on a Sunday morning you are all huddled around the electric fire in the lounge, freezing cold, of course it most definitely ruins your holiday, without the other issues. One additional point, you Market this property as having views across to the marina, this is NOT correct. Look forward to hearing from you.

    Thank you for your feedback, we are sorry to hear of the experience you had. Feedback such as this is most unusual for Squirrels Snug. The comments regarding the cleaning has been brought to the attention of the cleaner and will be looked into. Our Maintenance Manager did attend on Saturday following the report of the smell and found that it was not to do with the lodge directly, the smell was coming from somewhere else and this has been reported to the park for them to look into as it is to do with their infrastructure. We are sorry your stay was affected by the smell and the park are working on locating what caused this. Other maintenance issues reported were resolved during the same visit. Squirrels Snug is located close to the marina with glimpses of the lake depending on the time of year you visit. The Lakes Owner Relations Team. Property Owner

  • "The lodge was lovely nice quality however, the shower holder in bathroom was broken, broken shelf in fridge."

    I am assuming if this had been reported before we arrived would have been sorted so we left a note in the lodge to make the owner aware. The main thing however, was around the hot tub which wasn’t that hot and the canopy did not work so the area around the tub was very dirty which put us off using the tub as not to drag any dirt into the lodge also the outside table and chairs very dirty☹️ needed a pressure washer on the area, the facilities in the lodge ie dishes etc very nice quality and dishwasher very easy to use. Lovely curtains, Very dark in main bedroom obviously because of trees in a shaded area and property was not far from the lake which was nice.

    Thank you for your comments. We are glad that you found the lodge to be lovely, and that you enjoyed the facilities. We are sorry to hear of the issues that you experienced with the broken shelf in the fridge and toilet holder, and will ask our Maintenance teams to take a look at the decking.

  • "Loved the stay."

    Was advertised as having views of the marina but we couldn't see it from any window. The hot tub woke us up through the night. There was a note saying it could be turned off but we really wanted to use it. Other than those small issues the stay was brilliant. The place was very clean and the beds were really comfy. The facilities in the complex were good and the food and drinks were reasonably priced too. We paid £65 for four adults meals and 4 drinks. The TV had Netflix / prime and Disney + (own log in used) so there was a movie to watch every night. There was also a few games for you too if you wanted to play. There is plenty to do in the area. We visited Helvellyn, Lakeside motor museum as well as Coniston water which are all a short drive away. All in all a really relaxing holiday.

Fresh clean bedding and comfortable beds, ample wardrobe space with a small dresssing table Bathrooms (one ensuite) were compact yet had plenty of storage Oustide hot tub was fantastic once found out how to store lid, nice table and chairs with comfy padded cushions. Only a few things to consider there were hand marks on windows in the lounge and mirror which need attention when cleaning, few marks on walls inside Cabin which could possibly be covered by paint or a good clean to remove, ensuite could do with an update around the bath. Outside is very secluded which is great for privacy but is covered by lots of trees so constantly brushing up before using as lots of debris falling on the decking, hot tub, table and chairs. (Parasol for over hot tub but if sunny want a little bit of sun that can get through the trees) Only a few minutes from the lake which has lots of seating for picnics or reading. 5 minutes stroll to the main club on site (need to book for amenities in advance as limited availability which hopefully would change with any lifting of restrictions ie Gym and Swim there was also a cost of £8.95 per Adult and £5.95 per child for the duration of your stay which was good value for money. Food in club fresh and reasonably priced.

    Location was lovely, central for everything, hot tub was nice and also the sail shade should lakes weather be as usual though the hot tub did cut out a few times when jets were on (being looked at after u told them!). Can't really fault it but for those staying be aware you don't get access to the onsite pool, it's one down the road at choices leisure centre. Only downside for me this, again have suggested it would be a good change! Park location superb in case you aren't aware. Brockhole next door, 10 mins walk at best. There you have lots to do and access to ferries to see rest of the lake. Idwal What did you enjoy most about your stay?

  • "We had a lovely stay at squirels snug."

    The location of white cross bay holiday park is ideal for exploring the lake district and the lodge its self is in a good position within the park. We were a group of 4 adults and I think realistically in terms of size the lodge is more suited to a family with small children or a couple. The master bedroom is a really good size with an en suite, the only criticism I have is that the mattress needs replacing as it is very uncomfortable. The living room is a good open plan space along with a well equipped kitchen. The outside space is a good size and you can easily sit outside to enjoy the park and theres the added bonus of a hot tub. I understand due to the fact that the lodge backs onto a wooded area that you are bound to get tree sap and leaves on the decking area but it could do with being cleaned before guests arrive as we had to give the table and chairs a good clean before we could use them and I think this would benefit the guests especially if they have nice weather and want to sit out. I think a few things could be improved on with the lodge facilities such as it being a pet friendly lodge but we weren't provided with a Hoover and had to ask for one from lake district lodge holidays customer service however I'm sure this will be rectified. Also we obviously wanted to leave the lodge clean and had to purchase a few cleaning products as none were provided this would be handy to have just to keep the lodge nice and clean during your stay and when you leave. Overall squirels snug is a pleasant holiday home in a great location and I would recommend it anyone looking at staying here, it's a modern pet friendly lodge which allowed us 2 dogs which is usually hard to find.

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.

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.

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.
