  • "Sykes info & instructions was brilliant."

    The lodge 9, Pony Meadow, White Cross Bay, Cumbria was perfect. The lodge is very comfortable and warm on a wet day, and it was nice to go in the hot tub in the rain as the parassol is a great assett. We loved the view of the lake from the lodge. The lodge has everything, just pleased I took plenty of food & drink, however there is the spar close by. I found the washer dryer helpful. The site is very well situated, just a short car ride to the nearest cave or waterfall. Just one thing, the Internet isn't good, could not get on at all, however, the Reception said it is good there and welcome to use it. Thankyou

  • "We had a lovely stay here, the lodge was beautiful, the view incredible!"

    the only minor issue we noticed was that the decking of the lodge was broken in a couple of places, we did not mind but it could be a potential hazard for other guests. Thank you so much for a well needed get away!

    Thank you for your feedback. We are so pleased to hear of how much you enjoyed your stay in Windermere View. Thank you for bringing those points on the decking to our attention, they have been passed to maintenance to resolve. We do hope we will be welcoming you back soon. Property Owner

  • "Just spent a fabulous week here."

    The siting of the lodge is perfect, lovely view of the lake, with the sun in the late afternoon, which suited us. The weather was kind to us, so we could sit out in the evening or in, still keeping the french doors open. There was everything you need in the lodge. The hot tub did not disapoint, a fab way to unwind after pootling around the nearby towns and villages. The only negative was the decking, it does need some immediate maintenance. I did try getting in touch with the holiday company, but didn’t get a reply.

    Thank you for your lovely review. The lodge is in an ideal location and provides a great base for visiting the local area. Thank you for bring the issue regarding the decking to our attention and our maintenance team will be looking into this as a matter of urgency. We do hope you will return and have another fantastic stay with us soon. Property Owner

    Thank you for your feedback, we are delighted to hear of how much you enjoyed your stay. Windermere View is a lovely lodge which is definitely worth the visit. It would be our pleasure to welcome you back. Property Owner

    We enjoyed our stay and would revisit. Only issue I could state if I had to be picky we brought a disposable BBQ but could not locate the slab to use it. In all fairness we could not see this on many of the lodges as we walked around the site.

  • "On our arrival we turned up firstly to a rubbish bag ripped open and rubbish all over the parking space."

    On entering Lodge it was not very clean there was large cobwebs hanging from the ceiling bits on carpets, crumbs and cup marks on table, the fire also did not work. worst of all the toilets had facias around pot, brim and under toilet seat, this was unacceptable with what’s going on at the minute with Covid and also unacceptable with how much we payed for the lodge. We did complain and definitely appreciate everything they did to put things right but this shouldn’t of needed to be done if it was all ok in the first place. We did have a lovely weekend and the park/ views are is fab.

    The administration of our stay was first class giving lots of useful information. The lodge was clean and well equipped, spacious and welcoming with a really useful pack of kitchen essentials. However when we went to use the washing machine there was dirty tea towels and oven gloves inside and the shower in the on suite needs some maintenance or even replacing in saying that these things did not affect our stay.

  • "Check in - really swift."

    We arrived at 3 and reception gave us a map with directions to our lodge. Really helpful. Location - a short walk to the lake. Nice mountain views from the front of your lodge. Wooded area behind, so not totally overlooked. Hot tub is quite close to the next door neighbours, but was fine. Cleanliness - it was very neat and tidy on arrival. But after settling in we found a few random bits from previous guests: hair grip, hairbrush. Even a sock behind a sofa cushion. It was a bit musty on arrival, so we lit a few candles and opened windows to air out. Value - really good value for money overall. Would probably visit again. What did you enjoy most about your stay? Peaceful location What one experience (e.g attraction, walk, day out) would you recommend for our future guests? Take a walk up Orrest Head

    Upon arrival, we were really impressed with the lodge as it was clean and had everything we needed including a washing machine and a dishwasher. I was surprised at how modern the lodge was. The kitchen and bathrooms are finished off very nicely and the shower in the en suite is amazing! The hot tub was by far my favourite part, I was a bit sad when i got home and didnt have it! I had read some reviews complaining that it wasnt private enough but if you park your car up next to the lodge nobody can see you in it anyway. The view of the lake is so nice and we had a walk down to feed the ducks. I would 100% stay here again it is well worth the money! What did you enjoy most about your stay? The hot tub!

    Located in White Cross Bay park, the park was very busy but it was the last week of the summer holidays. The shop, bar, restaurant and leisure facilities are there if required. We were very impressed with the location of the lodge, 10 minutes to Ambleside, Bowness and Winderemere and only 15 minutes to Rydal and Grasmere. As a family of 4 with a 4 year old and 5 year old there was so much to do locally. In the evening we enjoyed meals in the lodge taking in the amazing view of Lake Windemere with the odd hot tub dip which was great to have. Overall the booking process, payment process, arrival and stay was very good. The lodge is of a very good standard and we felt it was worth the money spent. There was more than enough room for a family of four. What did you enjoy most about your stay? Location and standard of lodge.

  • "It was a very well maintained lodge in a great location."

    The family had a good time and would definitely like to visit again. The hot tub was well used (esp by our 6 year old). It was checked daily by the maintenance guys. Couple of points for improvement: 1. One of the reasons for choosing this lodge was mainly by seeing other guests saying that there is a large parasol to allow the use of hot tub in all weathers. But only realised on day 2 that the parasol was broken. It would be good to know that when booking. Luckily the weather was good and we didnt need the parasol. But it will be pointless to book an accomodation with a hot tub if you can not use it. 2. As some other guests have commented before, it would be worth considering updating the DVD player to something that has USB connectivity to be able to play some programmes/movies. This will help kids entertained and even the family. What did you enjoy most about your stay? The hot tub was great.... nice relaxation in the evening What one experience (e.g attraction, walk, day out) would you recommend for our future guests? For kids - Brockhole and Cocobean Chocolate factory

  • "Upon arrival at this lodge, my initial opinion was that of disappointment."

    The exterior decking was shabby. Inside the lodge was much better though. Very clean and spacious. Our next disappointment was that we had to wait 24 hours for the hot tub water to be hot enough to use, as it was freezing when we got there. Another issue with the hot tub, was in my opinion you should be able to use the hot tub in all weathers, rain, snow etc.. Well, it snowed when we were there and our towels and dressing gowns had to be draped over the railings getting soaked whilst we used the hot tub. There was no facility to hang these items in a sheltered area like we have had in other sites previously. Other small issues were for example damaged blinds on Windows, cracks in ceramic tiles in shower room and faulty locks on doors. Overall a nice lodge but i question the cost of this lodge for what we received What did you enjoy most about your stay?

  • "The location is fantastic, halfway between Ambleside and Windermere."

    This is in a reasonably quiet location (depending on your neighbours!) but is perfect for visiting the Lake District with walks on the doorstep and shops nearby. I was very pleased to see that there were paths running in both directions from the campsite, allowing you to ditch the car and get about by foot. Free access to the local health club was a great bonus, I only visited the once but the gym has most things you would need. The hot tub is located at the rear of the lodge which allows for a bit of privacy and was lovely after a days walk. It would have been helpful to have more detailed instructions for the hot tub as I had a few problems getting it up to the right temperature. I would happily visit again in the summer and make the most of the incredible location! What did you enjoy most about your stay?

    The lodge is in a great location. It was clean, has a fridge, freezer, microwave, dishwasher, washer, towels and some complimentary soaps etc. - everything you need for your stay. The hot tub was great, it also had an umbrella which was really useful as it rained the whole time. We brought our own travel cot which would only fit in the entrance to the main bedroom (we were advised of this when booking) so my husband and I slept in the second bedroom, the room was really cosy and the bed was comfortable. The only problem we encountered was that the main TV didn't have a USB port and we had brought a few films/series to watch in the evening while our son was asleep.

  • "Beautifully appointed lodge, very clean with excellent views of lake Windermere would have no hesitations of staying here again."

    Couple of nit-picks - chair on front decking was broken - we let Lake district lodge holidays know, they moved it to side patio, the side patio needs jet washing and table and chairs on there need attention as left out and weathered, having sad this.... the lodge is a beautiful lodge and the photos don't do it justice. A great place to stay, very relaxing. The lodge is situated in a fantastic place on a great site. The Lake is 100 yards away, the facilities are a few minutes walk with a nice club house - nice drink not over-priced. Local bus stops outside the gate so you don't need to move your car, or why not walk up to Brockhole and get on the boat... The hot - tub is great with an umbrella over so you can use in any weather- fabulous. What did you enjoy most about your stay?

  • "Our stay at Windermere View was excellent and we could not fault a single thing about it!"

    The lodge was in great condition, it was clean and spacious and in a superb location on the park. Fortunately for us the weather was warm and sunny for our stay which made the view out onto the lake all the better. After a long day of walking and venturing out we would sit back, relax and enjoy the hot tub located outside the lodge which looks out onto the lake. There are also many bars, restaurants and shops in the local towns of Windermere and Ambleside which are only around a 10/15 minute drive from the park. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who is looking for a holiday to the Lake District. What did you enjoy most about your stay? Relaxing in the Hot Tub after a tough day of walking.

Oven nob broken just span as had a split in know. I could also go on about the very well taken pictures of hot tub looking private but this was not the case we were over looked by the lodge next door. Very good photography.

    When we arrived it was lovely and clean and very welcoming. There is plenty of room in this little lodge and the view out across the lake and up the hillside is just breath taking. The location is ideal with it being just minutes from Windermere or Ambleside, so you really have the opportunity to see as much of the lakes as you'd like! Inside the lodge you have two lovely double bedrooms, two bathrooms, the lounge and kitchen is a good size, and the heating makes it lovely and cozy for a winters stay! I would really recommend this beautiful lodge to anyone who wants to stay in a picturesque location! What did you enjoy most about your stay? The beautiful view across the lake!

    Mrs Ann MattimoeAug 2016

  • "On arrival we were stunned by the fantastic view of the lake from the decking on what was a beautiful evening."

    It got even better when we opened the door to find a spotlessly clean and extremely attractive interior (the pictures do not do it justice). The children were delighted to discover the gift of biscuits from the owners as well as a jar of coffee and a bottle of milk ready in the fridge - such a lovely touch and very thoughtful. The lodge had everything you could possibly need. I am a regular centre parcs goer and as such take supplies of tea/coffee, toilet rolls, washing up things, bin bags etc. but I didn't need any of these things because the lodge was fully stocked with everything you could think of. The hot tub was amazing and the umbrella came in handy with all the rain we had. The owners have also supplied a BBQ too!! The site is in a great place to explore the lakes and it was a nice five minute walk to Brockhole visitor centre where we had a great day out. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this lodge. The owners have gone out of their way to create a welcoming atmosphere!! We hope to return in the future where hopefully the sun will shine a bit more. 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? Brockhole visitors centre

Lots to do What one experience (e.g attraction, walk, day out) would you recommend for our future guests? Brockholes if you have children

    Mrs Marion WalkerAug 2016

  • "Absolutely gorgeous lodge with a stunning lake view."

    Really nicely decorated and very clean. The only downside we found was that it did get very hot inside the lodge when the weather was over 25 degrees and could of done with a fan or something inside to help cool it down. What did you enjoy most about your stay? The lodge being so nice and clean What one experience (e.g attraction, walk, day out) would you recommend for our future guests? Boat hire or just a boat trip on the lake is wonderful

    Mr Bradley ElsonJul 2016

  • "We were delighted with the presentation and cleanliness of the lodge."

    It has all the amenities you could hope for and the outdoor areas (including the hot tub) were superb. The only slight negative on the lodge itself was that we couldn't fit the travel cot into either of the bedrooms so had to do quite a bit of furniture re-arranging! What did you enjoy most about your stay? Being able to relax in comfortable surroundings. What one experience (e.g attraction, walk, day out) would you recommend for our future guests? Lakeside Aquarium (our toddler loved it!)

    Mrs Heather DobbinJul 2016

  • "We are regular visitors to the lakes with it being a short 1 1/2 drive away and we're always guaranteed a great weekend away rain or shine."

    Usually we book the usual hotels or b&bs but we were looking for something unique and romantic and found this beautiful lodge online and it certainly didn't disappoint. The lodge itself is decorated and finished to a very high standard. Along with the finishing touches essential for our stay ie washing up, bin bags, cleaning equipment. A welcome basket was provided with beautiful local cookies which were a great touch from the owners and we tucked into them on the decking before we unpacked watching the sun dusk beyond the lake view ahead of us. The hot tub was a fantstic extra, we had read people requesting a canopy cover for use in the rain and people requesting bbqs and obviously the owners had read and noted these requests because both had been provided for us. A hot tub in torrential rain is an experience everyone has to try! Overall we had a fantastic stay, the lodge was immaculate and the surrounding breathtaking as expected. We cannot wait to return in the autumn. What did you enjoy most about your stay? The lodge was very well finished and modern whilst maintaining a cosy feel. What one experience (e.g attraction, walk, day out) would you recommend for our future guests? Brockhole Treetop Nets

    Mr Stephen GivenJul 2016

  • "We thoroughly enjoyed our week at Windermere View Chalet which provided everything one could wish with a couple of exceptions."

    Superb Chalet ideally situated at White Cross Bay. Unseen hospitality was excellent and most problems were rectified promptly. What did you enjoy most about your stay? The Mountain scenery and dramatic 'passes' that we exp[lored, with great walks. What one experience (e.g attraction, walk, day out) would you recommend for our future guests? A drive through the Wrynase and Hardknott passes with a stop at Boot Station, followed by a train trip to Ravensglass.
