    “This is a lovely lodge which is well-maintained, clean and spacious.”

    It’s suitably equipped for a holiday lodge (though no bath sheets which would be useful). We had a lovely holiday overall but the Parkdean clubhouse (which has a restaurant/bar, swimming pool, small shop) really let things down. We have been to White Cross Bay 3 times before but we felt standards had dropped this year. The service in the restaurant was appalling with longs delays, missing items and a limited menu.

    It’s suitably equipped for a holiday lodge (though no bath sheets which would be useful). We had a lovely holiday overall but the Parkdean clubhouse (which has a restaurant/bar, swimming pool, small shop) really let things down. We have been to White Cross Bay 3 times before but we felt standards had dropped this year. The service in the restaurant was appalling with longs delays, missing items and a limited menu. Meals have to be ordered via an App and downloading and using it was really difficult given that the Wi-Fi is useless and it’s difficult using even 3G/4G on site. On one occasion, we sat in the restaurant for 15 minutes trying to get the app to work and eventually gave up, and went to the bar to try and order. When we got there, we were told that all meals were sold out and there is absolutely no food available. This was at 7pm! On another occasion, the bar closed at 10pm because staff wanted an early finish despite there being customers still present. I’d have no hesitation in recommending this lodge, but I don’t think I’d recommend White Cross Bay again. By the way, the Lee really is no Wi-Fi availability so bear this in mind if you need to do any work.

    We are really pleased you enjoyed our lodge and thank you for your lovely feedback. We are sorry you found the park facilities to be lacking, we believe good WiFi will be available very soon and the park is working hard to address the staffing issues.. Property Owner

Park Rules and Operations – White Cross Bay

All holiday parks are owned and managed by a separate company to ourselves. Lake District Lodge Holidays has no association with the owners of these parks or responsibility for the provision of services they offer. At certain times of year, there maybe a reduction in those services, which is outside of our control.

Commercial vehicles, caravans, camper vans, Hen or Stag parties are not permitted onsite. Dogs must be kept on leads at all times and are not be left alone in the lodges at any point during your stay.

You will be staying on an operational holiday park, which means work may be undertaken from time to time by the park owners during your stay. Although Lake District Lodge Holidays will always try to inform guests in advance if something may impact on a stay and if we have prior knowledge. We cannot be held responsible or accept any liability for park operations of which are outside of our control and which we have no knowledge of.

Any issues relating to a stay at a privately owned lodge should be reported back through Lake District Lodge Holidays as the park are not responsible for managing the lodge or booking for private sublet guests during their stay.


Hot Tubs

For the comfort of other holidays guests we request that noise is kept to a minimum. Usage of the hot tub is between 10am and 10pm only. If you are found to breach these timings then you may be asked to vacate the park with no call for a refund.

All hot tubs are maintained to strict industry standards and HSE guidelines by separate qualified independent contractors on behalf of the property owners. This includes changing the water between guest stays and checking the water condition on a regular basis.

Whilst every effort is made to have a hot tub ready for immediate use by the arrival time stated, this may not always be possible. In such cases the hot tub will usually be ready to use later that day unless otherwise advised. In such cases no compensation or refund is payable unless the hot tub is faulty.

Information about using a hot tub safely is provided at all lodges with a hot tub and on a prominent notice near the tub. All hot tub users should wear an appropriate bathing suit.
