Absolutely wonderful stay in this beautiful lodge! Although the weather was not too kind during the week, coming back to such a lovely lodge with the added benefit of the hot tub was superb! Very quiet location on the park which made for a lovely relaxing week. Everything we could possibly need was provided, including the ice dispenser in the huge American style fridge freezer! Would highly recommend this lodge and we will definitely be returning. We would also recommend the on site restaurant - good food and good customer service too. Christine Greenhill, Solihull

Had a fantastic 3 night at Badgers Hollow, the lodge itself was immaculate and it had everything you need for a weekend away. There is a lot to do in the surrounding areas, Windermere, Bowness, etc with a lot of different restaurants to choose from. The hot tub was a bonus and a treat after a long days walking. We even got round to using the Health Choice Club, swimming, jacuzzi, sauna and steam room which was amazing. Overall had an amazing weekend, will definitely be booking back up for next year.

Had a week at Badgers Hollow with my wife and our three year old daughter. The lodge itself is finished to a decent standard and felt comfortable and cosy. My daughter loved it. The site itself is well situated with some ok facilities. However, the bar/restaurant is too small to accommodate all the holiday makers on the site even though the staff do their utmost. The multi games area also has a very restrictive net ceiling (presumably to keep the leaves off it in the autumn) so it is impossible to play even a friendly game of tennis. In short, nice lodge, nice staff but the site itself needs some investment. Given the extortionate cost they are charging for buying a lodge, they must surely have the money.

Thank you for your review, Matthew and we were delighted to hear you had a relaxing break at Badgers Hollow. The lodge is equipped with all home comforts for guests to enjoy a very comfortable, and relaxing stay (lovely to know your daughter thought so too) And of course the hot tub is amazing! How better to unwind of an evening? As booking agents to this privately owned lodge the park facilities and services are something outside of our control, although having said that we appreciate you letting us know and we will pass on your comments to the park management for their reference. The nearby towns, Bowness-on-Windermere and Ambleside, have an excellent choice of eateries and bars and with a good atmosphere. Definitely worth trying. Badgers Hollow offers superb contemporary accommodation for families or couples looking to escape to the Lakes. An ideal holiday retreat.

We had a wonderful week long break in this lodge. It was in a perfect location for getting out and about to see the Lake District. The lodge was clean and well presented and it had everything you need. The park itself was also lovely and the facilities on the park were good. I would highly recommend this location and we aim to come back in the near future. Sarah Russell, Coventry

We enjoyed a week at Badgers Hollow in June as a family of 4 (2 children aged 9 & 11). We were lucky with the weather, so were able to sit out on the decking, using the patio furniture provided. The hot tub was fabulous and we used it every day. The wet room off the main bedroom was great, but we could have done with a mop to dry it afterwards and prevent wet feet onto the carpet. There was also a full bath in the other bathroom. We also loved the american fridge with ice dispenser and generally found the kitchen fully equipped and happily cooked in it. The beds and sofas were comfortable and I even found a good book to read off the bookshelf in the lodge. There was plenty of wardrobe space and hangers, plus space to store outdoor coats and boots in the hallway. The washing machine was also another much appreciated addition to the lodge. it is in a quiet location on the park, so no problems sleeping at night. Karen Heraty, Leixlip

Thank you for your review, Karen and we were pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay at Badgers Hollow. It is certainly a lovely lodge which is very popular with our guests and enjoys a quiet location within White Cross Bay (complete with it's own private hot tub!).

About White Cross Bay

White Cross Bay is located between Windermere & Ambleside on the shores of Lake Windermere. It is one of the most popular holiday parks in the very heart of the Lake District and the great location makes it a convenient base for a self catering stay in the area. 

The focal point is the lake front and marina with stunning views across to the surrounding fells and countryside. The park offers plenty to do with a large clubhouse which includes the bar, restaurant and leisure facilities (a £15 local charge applies to use the pool and gym).
