    “On arrival found lodge appeared clean and was tidy, however, as night wore on there was a distinct smell of grease in living area.”

We cleaned oven base and oven trays but declined to use oven during stay. Smell lingered throughout stay and used fragranced candles and air fresheners.

    On checking oven, found it extremely dirty with shelves covered in grease and two baking trays dirty and covered in grease. Bottom of oven was stained too. We cleaned oven base and oven trays but declined to use oven during stay. Smell lingered throughout stay and used fragranced candles and air fresheners. Had issue with lights / fan in ensuite but call out responded very quickly and bulbs were replaced. One of bulbs blew after continuously flashing by end of holiday so suspect bulbs are not issue but something electrical. A smell in one of the wardrobes meant we could not use it. A teapot would be a useful addition for kitchen We have booked Lake District Lodge Holidays every Oct for past 7 years and this was the first time we have encountered issues. Our usual feedback is normally positive. We will continue using your services for future holidays, however, we will more than likely not return to The Wodge.

    Thank you for your feedback. We take all comments on board, and would like to add had we been made aware we would have attended to resolve. We will pass on your feedback to our Housekeeping and Maintenance Teams. Thank you The Lake District Lodge Holidays Owner Relations Team. Property Owner

The property

The Wodge is a lovely three-bedroom lodge located upon White Cross Bay Holiday Park in Cumbria, close to Lake Windermere. With a wraparound deck with furnishings where you can enjoy your morning coffee, off-road parking, and a range of on-site facilities, including an indoor heated swimming pool, this quaint home in a tranquil setting makes a great home base for families or groups of friends travelling with one pooch friend. Enter your new home through the front door and into the open-plan living area. The kitchen is well-equipped with all the appliances and elegant worktops you would need for a self-catered stay. After a filling meal at the six-person dining table, retire to the plush couches and cuddle up by the electric fireplace to watch a family favourite on the Smart TV. When the weather allows, you might enjoy dining alfresco on the patio furniture or raise a glass to a wonderful retreat before heading to the family bathroom to unwind with a decadent soak in the tub. When bedtime comes, you can choose between a double bedroom with an en suite shower room and two tastefully decorated twin bedrooms. When you're ready to go exploring, head to the nearby pristine beauty of Lake Windermere, where you can try kayaking and paddleboarding, as well as a variety of other watersports. You can also stroll to Queen Adelaide's Hill or Brockhole on Windermere to explore 30 acres of historical gardens and grounds. If you want to travel further, you can take a boat across the lake to Ambleside or Lakeside, where you can visit the beloved children's author Beatrix Potter's former home, stroll along the lakeshore path to Wray Castle, or hike to Orrest Head Viewpoint for stunning views of Wansfell, Red Screes, and Kirkstone Pass. Bring your loved ones to The Wodge for an unforgettable Cumbrian getaway.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £100.
