This two-bedroom cabin is perfect for families and friends because it has its own bubbling hot tub, rooftop deck, and a light and spacious sitting area. The balcony offers stunning views of the lake and mountains, making it the ideal spot to take in a summer sunset. Although the lodge's interior is small, it is fully equipped for a self-catered stay. A nice dinner may be prepared in the kitchen/dining area after passing through the living area, which is a terrific place to relax and watch a movie. Two bedrooms and a shared bathroom are located lower in the lodge. Head outdoors into the lower deck, where there is a private hot tub and seats, then climb to the roof deck for refreshments and outdoor dining. You can really feel yourself in the middle of the Lake District when you visit White Cross Bay, which is situated right on the shores of Lake Windermere with views of the surrounding fells and over the water. The waterside, where you may descend to the jetties, take in the fresh air, take in the sights, and watch the boats in the marina, is close to Spiral Steps Lodge. A bar and restaurant with dog-friendly outdoor dining, a picnic area, and a kids' play area can be found on the Park itself. There are additional fees associated with using some park amenities, including the pool, gym, entertainment, bar, and restaurant. With gardens, a home, a café, a restaurant, walks, boats, an adventure playground, and Tree Top Trek, Brockhole Lake District Visitor Center is a terrific place to spend the day.

About the location

WINDERMERE

Ambleside 5 miles; Kendal 8.7 miles.

The twin towns of Bowness and Windermere are both vibrant, fun-filled places set within the splendid scenery of the Lake District. Both towns provide a range of amenities, shops and restaurants to suit all tastes whilst Ambleside offers the additional attraction of a boat ride to Bowness, the Lakeside Aquarium and Beatrix Potter's 'Hill Top House' at Sawrey. Grizedale Forest Park is within easy driving distance and is home to a range of activities including many good walks, mountain biking and the 'Go Ape' adventure park. The region also boasts many National Trust properties as well as a variety of water sports for those who prefer a more adrenaline-fuelled trip. Children will enjoy a trip to the 'World of Beatrix Potter' in Bowness whilst the villages of Grasmere, Coniston Water, Kendal, Keswick and the Lakeland Mountains are all within easy reach.

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. Usage of a hot tub is at a guests own risk and Lake District Lodge Holidays accepts no liability for anything which may happen to a guest as a direct result of using a hot tub.
