We had a fantastic family break at Esk Pike with our children aged 7 and 5. The accommodation, location and amenities on site were ideal for the whole family. Scott Metcalfe, Richmond

Thank you for your review, Scott and letting us know you had a fantastic family break at Esk Pike. This cosy and traditional log cabin with a secluded hot tub is the ideal combination for a relaxing holiday. Brockhole, indeed a super experience and comes highly recommended for a family day out. We were delighted to hear you had a really good time and very kind of you to award top marks on all aspects of your stay, thank you. Perhaps we will welcome you again in the near future?

The lodge we had was by far the best, secluded surrounded by nature, amazing! The ONLY thing I could mention is jacuzzi water smells so much of bleach we couldn't open the window just next to it from the bedroom because the smell was unbearable at night even with the cover on jacuzzi, but this minor thing didn't stop us enjoying our holiday there, and some staff had attitude but it's expected anywhere, otherwise amazing lodge and location! Will stay again Guest , Birmingham

We really enjoyed our anniversary trip to the Lake District and the Esk Pike lodge was everything we needed. We were made aware of everything available to us in the emails sent to us prior to our stay which included everything we needed to know. The booking process was clear and simple and made the holiday stress free so that we could enjoy our stay in the beautiful lodge park. Amber Townsend, Birmingham

Beautiful cabin perfect for couples or families with older children. Unfortunately as we have a 1&2 year old it wasn't very practical. (No room for travel cot in 2nd room, lots of nick nacks that little people want just because they know they aren't allowed.) Of course these are purely issues we experienced due to our own circumstances and not a reflection of the lodge itself and only mentioned for those in a similar circumstance that may be looking. The hot tub was an absolute delight! For a lodge/caravan park. This is the most private you can get. It was bliss! Would have been amazing to eat out on the balcony on a morning but we had poor weather. The on-site facilities are decent enough. Food wasn't the best at the bar but your literally 10min drive from bowness and Windermere where there's plenty of places to go. But for a few social drinks the on-site bar is ideal with entertainment on a evening. There a spar, swimming pool and outdoor play areas for kids and even a small arcade room. A shop too but it closes around 5. The cabin was lovely and snug for a evening. But the double bed was like sleeping on a rock. However the spare room beds were very comfortable.

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).
