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.

Four adults sharing this lodge we all had a lovely time the lodge was in a great position it was up a bit of a hill but that wasn't a problem for us it was clean and homely and had everything we needed the hot tub was a great addition and is undercover and very private would we stay there again yes definitely the only thing I would mention is the two single beds one has been cut down to fit in the room if your over 5 ft you may struggle luckily me and my husband are small the couple we went with are over 5ft 6 inches so they had the double.

Thank you for your review Maria and we were pleased to hear you all had an enjoyable stay at Esk Pike. The second twin bed is a little shorter so it fits comfortably in the twin bedroom. We are glad it didn't impact too much on your stay. Esk Pike is a hugely popular, traditional lodge which enjoys a superb private location with the benefit of a covered hot tub. We do hope you will return again in the future.

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).
