Description

Lazy Days Lodge on the shores of Lake Windermere

Lazy Days is a huge lodge that has a full wall of glass doors and windows, and vaulted ceilings, making it bright and airy. The stream leading to the Lake is in front of the lodge, and the ducks swim up every day to be fed. The lounge/dining area and kitchen are all open plan.....very sociable! The kitchen has everything you need incl slow cooker, washing machine and dishwasher. The lodge has full central heating and double glazing and is lovely and warm even on the coldest Lake District days. The main bedroom has a king size bed, tv and en suite bathroom, the second bedroom has 2 single beds and drawers and wardrobes. The family bathroom has bath and shower and heated towel rail. This really is a superb, well located, very comfortable lodge, with plenty of outdoor space and in a position on the park that is only a 3 minute walk down to the Lake. You will not be disappointed!

About Kim

Myself and my partner Anthony live in Preston with our 2 yorkies Freddie and Barney, we still both work full time, so unfortunately don,t get to spend as much time at the lodges as we would like, we can,t wait to retire then we can spend more time in the Lakes.

Kim purchased this cabin in 2012

Why Kim chose England

We had 3 fab holidays at White Cross Bay, before we took the plunge and bought Lazy Days Lodge. We looked at quite a few but as soon as we walked into Lazy Days we knew this was the one.....its so bright and airy with a full wall of glass, and the fact it had the stream in front of it and the ducks were swimming away in front of the decking , we just fell in love with it and bought it the same day.

2years later Happy Days came up for sale.......this was different it was a project! The lodge was in a bit of a state but we saw the potential......so over the closed season we gutted it, and did a complete refurb, and the result is stunning. Happy Days is now a bright contempary style lodge lodge, very comfortable and everyone that stays loves it.

What makes this cabin unique

Both lodges benefit from being very large, ideal for families or 2 couples. The decking areas on them both are some of the largest to be found on White Cross Bay, and we have quality outdoor furniture on them both.

It is only a 3 minute walk to the lake from either lodge and a similar time to walk to reception and the leisure facilities.

Whichever oidge you choose.....we guarantee you won,t be disappointed......some guests have stayed in both.....but can,t decide which they prefer!

We were very impressed when we parked outside the lodge and even more so when we entered it.

  • 5 of 5

The property was in an excellent location to explore the Lake District. We had never been before and found White Cross Bay an ideal location to travel to the local towns from. The lodge was in excellent condition and was spotlessly clean. The decoration and furnishings were to a high standard and very homely. The lodge was cozy and welcoming. Bed was very comfortable and bedding was to a high standard. There were lots of little extras in the kitchen which made it homely and milk and orange juice left for us was a very nice thought. We will definitely return to the Lake District and I would definitely book Lazy Days lodge again. I have already recommended the lodge to family and friends. The owners of the lodge provided their phone number incase we had an issues or questions which was reassuring. High quality lodge situated in an ideal location and we will return in the next year or so. I would also like to mention with the lodge being dog friendly that it was a safe environment for our dog and upon entering the lodge there was no smell of any previous dog/s. A great find lodge.

Fabulous lodge near Windermere

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at the lodge for 3 nights and couldn't have asked for more. The lodge was spotlessly clean and fully equipped with everything we needed - and more. Tasteful decoration and fittings and very comfortable. Will hopefully be back again soon

A Tear In My Eye

  • 5 of 5

This was our third stay in this lovely lodge.

On arrival we were greater witg tea, coffee, milk and orange juice which was welcomed after the long drive.

The two bathrooms have been refurbished to a very high standard. Overall the lodge was as clean as ever and so relaxing.

A lovely stay once again and would highly recommend to anyone.
