Esk Pike is a lovely cosy lodge located in a quiet area of the park, this was our first visit to the lodge and we will definitely be returning . The hot tub was fantastic to relax in at the end of the day so is a bonus . The lodge provided most things I would like to suggest that a maiden would have been most helpful to dry out the towels and clothing this would be a great addition as there was nowhere to hang wet items this was the only thing that I can have a negative comment about as everything else was just perfect for a relaxing break . A good day out was had at Aira Force , lots of different walks and beautiful water falls . I would definitely recommend a stay at this cosy lodge Nichola Maguire, Manchester

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

About White Cross Bay
