Spotless, truly amazing experience:)

  • 5 of 5

We chosen this lodge for Christmas and we had the best Christmas ever:) Paul even put a Christmas tree for us! The lodge is extremely tidy and very well looked after. We really felt like at home. Spacious, cozy, modern. I can imagine how nice would be to stay during the summer, because it has such a lovely terrace.

We will definitely come back and recommend to everyone. 10/10!

Nice cabin but don't expect wi fi.

  • 4 of 5

The cabin is mainly very nice and we did mainly enjoy our stay. The location is surrounded by birds including a couple of Tawny Owls which we adored. Whilst it is a fairly short walk to the lake it was disappointing to discover it wasn't actually visible which was the impression I got from the literature. We stayed for a week and out of 5 devices we could possibly obtain wi fi on it was only possible for perhaps a total of four hours and even then not strong enough to do proper searches. In this age where we are so dependent on internet to plan our day trips the lack of information pages especially opening times was a real problem and twice we paid to park only to find the venue shut. We would have otherwise known this and made alternative plans. We made three visits to reception to try and remedy the wi fi and each time went away thinking it was fixed............! yes it did work in reception!

On a minor note the cabin has a wash basin without a swivel tap so you can't actually wash your face without spilling on the floor. There's also a loose floorboard that will make you slip in the kitchen. The deck is in need of a good sweep and a clean. Enough of the rant but these issues are important to me. If they wouldn't bother you the cabin will provide you with a great place to stay

Owner's Response: Thank you for your comments. I have modified the literature saying, "the lodge site is on the shores of lake Windermere, as opposed to the lodge is on the shores of lake Windermere". I hope this helps. Although the photos do show the Lodge is not on the very edge of the lake. The decking is swept after each clean of the lodge. But as there a number of large trees standing over the lodge, they drop leaves, bits of twigs, catkins etc on the decking on a daily basis and varies depending on the wind. Therefore a brush is left on the decking, should you wish to use it. The loose floor board as described, was actually a piece of laminate flooring in the kitchen area. This has now been secured! Swivel taps are normally a fitting found in the kitchen rather than a hand basin in a bathroom. Its unfortunate you found this to be a problem. The WIFI is dependant on a signal from the site. I have never had a problem obtaining a signal myself. As a good signal was obtained at reception, perhaps you could have sat in the lounge/restaurant area next to reception, as signal on your devises was poor, to do any essential work/planning on your stay? Yours Sincerely Paul

Trout Beck #9

  • 4 of 5

The park was very well organized and well kept.

The cabin was very comfortable and well appointed. The only trouble we had was with the heating system. It was quite cool for the duration of our stay and we could not adjust the heat up. So we accomplished this with the living room fire - running it at maximum and leaving all the doors open. Not sure that this was the most efficient way of accomplishing the task. Other than this all was excellent.

Everything that we needed

  • 5 of 5

Very comfortable stay situated on a picturesque site.

The cabin was clean, warm and comfortable, with everything we needed for an enjoyable stay - just as described.

Site facilities are good, with a restaurant on site and Pedro's within walking distance.

Only downside was that the walk into Bowness / Windermere was further than we expected, taking well over an hour.

Plenty of taxis though, costing around £10;00 for 4 adults - cheaper than the local bus.

Would certainly have no hesitation staying here again.

The nearest train station is in Windermere, a short drive away from White Cross Bay Holiday Park.


Bowness on Windermere - 2 miles

Ambleside - 2 miles

Grasmere - 7 miles

Keswick - 20 miles

Distances are a rough estimate.
