There is a railway station in Windermere with regular services connecting with the West Coast Mainline at Oxenholme.

Regular bus services run from outside Windermere railway station with the main routes to Kendal & Keswick. Guests staying at White Cross Bay or Fallbarrow Park can easily get a bus to those parks.

Taxis can also be picked up from outside the main railway station in Windermere (and Oxenholme).

Your ‘Arrival Information pack’ which we is emailed 14 days prior to your stay. This will be required when you check in as it authorises the park to allow access to your lodge.

High Borrans – Please make your way to the lodge. The owner Cathy will pop down to see you soon after arrival.

Full instructions regarding where to get the keys will be in your arrival information which is emailed 14 days prior to your stay.


If you plan to arrive after 8pm please let us know if possible in advance.

The opening times for reception at Limefitt, Fallbarrow & White Cross Bay vary depending on the time of year. When the main reception is closed there will usually be a night warden or another member of park staff around to provide your check in (and provide the security barrier code to access the park).

Please note the gates at Fallbarrow close at midnight and don’t open until around 7:30am.

If you are staying at High Borrans and will be arriving after 8pm please contact the owner Cathy – the number will be provided in your arrival information.

If arriving after dark we recommend you have a torch too!

Only in exceptional circumstances or outside of peak season by prior arrangement. Our arrival and departure times need to be observed as there is usually only a short window of time for lodges to be cleaned and any maintenance issues to be addressed prior to guest arrivals.


Standard arrival is from 3 p.m. and departure by 10 a.m. Some lodges have different times which will be indicated in the ‘Need to know’ tab on the individual lodge page. Times will also be confirmed in the guest arrival information email which is sent 14 days prior to a stay.

Most 2 night weekend specials will have a 5 p.m. departure allowing guests to enjoy a full day.

We politely ask guests to observe these times as lodges need to be cleaned, serviced and checked between stays.

The majority of lodges at Limefitt, Fallbarrow and White Cross Bay operate a Friday or Monday changeover. Arrivals and departures outside of these days may be possible but only within 2 weeks of the stay and/or in low season. Just give us a call or drop us an email to check.
