About Margaret Harrison

We are a family of three who live permanently in Ambleside with our two dogs. This allows us to take care of the lodge ourselves and are on hand if there are any queries. we are delighted to offer suggestions of walks, pubs, restaurant, activities etc.

We take so much pride in our lodge and from the feedback we receive, guests feel very at home and no-one ever wants to leave.

Margaret Harrison purchased this cabin in 2013

Why Margaret Harrison chose England

Always loved holidays in the Lake District, especially Bowness and Ambleside. There are so many amazing walks from the doorstep and love not having to drive! So dog friendly here and so many pubs and shops we can take dogs in (list provided in lodge).

What makes this cabin unique

Review #15977630 “Pet friendly, Luxury lodge overlooking Lake Windermere, 3 bedrooms, one ensuite.”

First class ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

We had an absolutely wonderful family holiday. The lodge was simply quite beautiful and a home from home. We were happy to come back each evening after busy days exploring the area. The kids loved being near the lake and feeding the ducks and we loved the tranquility. It's so well situated for visiting the surrounding area and we made the most of eating out in Bowness and Ambleside. We'd definitely love to return.

Early spring break

  • 5 of 5

Lovely holiday lodge with great views of the lake (and fast jets)from the dining table through the large picture window.

Plenty of room for the 4 adults and 2 dogs.

The gated veranda makes it ideal for dogs.

The weather was very kind and we had lovely walks everyday.

This was our 2nd visit to whitecross bay with a 4 night stay in one of Margarets lodges, and it did not disappoint.

Many thanks.

This place was Simply wonderful! charming lodge, fabulous view. ideal location for family or even without to be honest. Clean, tidy welcoming and if you like a good walk. walking distance to all of Windermere. Brockhole park practically next door and ideal for family fun! Margaret was responsive and welcoming at all times and i honestly couldn't recommend this place enough. We will without a doubt be back. I could happily holiday here annually! Thank you for making our new year family break just perfect.

Wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

The lodge was beautifully decorated and immaculate. We had a welcome pack of fresh bread, milk and juice. We were there celebrating my mother in law's 60th birthday, the owners had left a bottle of wine and baloon. Fluffy towels and bed linen were provided and the lodge had lots of little extras that you don't normally get. The decking outside the lodge was great, with a lovely view of the lake.

The Onsite swimming pool and sauna/steam are excellent and very clean. The park itself is well maintained and in a beautiful setting on the shore of lake Windermere. Perfectly located between Windermere and Ambleside.

Had a wonderful few days stay. Would definitely return and recommend to friends.
