|Minimum Stay||3 - 4 nights|
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!
Both of our lodges are large luxurious, contemporary style lodges, beautifully furnished, very well equipped and with top quality bedding and towels.Each lodge has a huge decking area on 3 sides and private parking for 2 cars. Both lodges are about a 3 minute walk down to the marina and the shores of Lake Windermere. Happy Days is our Pet friendly lodge, with gates fitted to keep your doggy safe.
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
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.
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!
Spent three nights in Lazy days from the 6th Jan 2017, as a post Christmas wind down, it worked a treat. From the moment we opened the door it felt very, very comfortable, so much so it was difficult to go even out. The Chalet was very well looked after, very clean had everything you needed and on entry was warm and welcoming. The weather while we where there wasn’t great but it didn’t matter just wanted to look out of the windows and watch in style. I would highly recommend Lazy Days to anyone.
Lazy Days lodge has everything you could want or need. My family and I decided to have a mini break after the chaos of Xmas. We wanted somewhere we could unwind, distress yet still have all our home comforts...lazy days lodge was absolutely perfect for this. The location is an ideal base for whatever you choose to do whilst in the lakes. The lodge itself is beautiful, the decor is tastefully done and is fully equipped with everything you could want.
We will most definitely be returning but next time it will be for longer. We really didn't want to leave.
Wow just about sums up our stay at Lazy days lodge. The owner has taken every step to make sure that everything you may need is there. Without a doubt the most well equipped holiday home I have ever stayed in. The lodge is open plan, homely and beautifully decorated, it is spotlessly clean and holds a fantastic position in Whitecross Bay. Will be definitely booking again for next year.
The lodge was perfect. Immaculate, modern and had everything we needed- loved the Christmas decorations as well. Thanks Kim, we will be back again!
The property was excellent everything you needed was provided the Christmas tree was a added bonus it made it more festive. I would have loved to be able to have spent more time outside on the balcony watching the birds but the weather was not the best too windy and rainy. My niece and her partner enjoyed the walks around the lake with her dogs
Absolutely delighted with this lodge. Had everything we needed and more. Very modern, spacious, very clean and bright. Located in a lovely spot not too far from the amenities. My parents were staying in the sister lodge, ( Happy Days) which is just around the corner which made it even better!! We were all close by and their lodge was just as nice and it was also Pet Friendly. We used the pool as we had children with us and this was nice, we also ate at the Boathouse on the Sat Night which was very family friendly (mini disco for kids) and our meal was nice.t. Brockholes Visitor Centre just a 15 min walk up the road which is fab. Definitely recommend and will definitely be returning. Owner was great to deal with too. Thank You!!
Lake Windermere is a 3 minute walk from the lodges.
