    “First visit to White Cross Bay, after our holiday abroad was cancelled and we (2 adults and 2 kids, 12 and 15 plus dog) had a great time and will definitely return.”

    The lodge was excellent, located nicely in the middle of the site, not far away from the lake and also the onsite facilities, the lodge was large in size, clean and very welcoming, large living area, tv’s in the bedrooms and two bathrooms, one being en-suite to the large bedroom, bedrooms were of good size and there was nothing to fault. We couldn’t use the hot tub on the first evening as it was only 30 degrees, but that is to be expected if the water had been changed prior. The sites ...

    The lodge was excellent, located nicely in the middle of the site, not far away from the lake and also the onsite facilities, the lodge was large in size, clean and very welcoming, large living area, tv’s in the bedrooms and two bathrooms, one being en-suite to the large bedroom, bedrooms were of good size and there was nothing to fault. We couldn’t use the hot tub on the first evening as it was only 30 degrees, but that is to be expected if the water had been changed prior. The sites facilities were generally lacking in the way of any entertainment, nothing for the kids other than a really small games room and small swimming pool but it’s not what we visited the lakes for so wasn’t an issue for us, the WIFI was very sporadic and this coupled with poor mobile coverage meant it was fun to order via the app in the onsite restaurant\pub which caused some frustration and it would be ideal to have the pay by card\cash option absolve without any “debate” with the bar staff. The site itself was excellent, nice walks into the wood and also along the lake, with very easy access to the water itself for Paddleboards etc, it was disappointing the onsite shop closed at 5pm, even if it was not busy after 5pm for a site without any nearby shops having the shop until 7pm would be better, although we had access t a car so a pleasant trip to Ambleside and Bowness was not a issue. Brockhole was also great place to visit for kids and adults, but most activities were booked although we eventually managed to get the kids onto a few things. The lodge had a few things to address such as the kitchen tap would not stop dripping, the heating would not work but that was quickly fixed by the maintenance staff, and there seems to be a wasps nest above the backdoor in the apex of the roof, but the aspects above did not take away anything from the holiday. The only thing I would change If I was to book again is to book any meals out and activities weeks ahead, but the lodge and site is perfect will be considered in the future.

    Thank you for your feedback, we are delighted to hear of how much you enjoyed your stay in Damson Lodge. The lodge is in a great location on the park and is fully equipped with everything you need. It is great to hear of how much you explored the local area, Brockhole on Windermere is fantastic for all the family but definitely book in advance! We are sorry you were left disappointed with the park facilities, unfortunately this is something outside of our control and we can only send our apologise for the inconvenience caused. We do hope you will return and enjoy Damson Lodge again. Property Owner

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.

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.
