Spent 4 nights here in July 2017. Really enjoyed our stay and the cabin itself was really nice. The hot tub was great and inside it was comfortable. Loved the location of the cabin. The only downfall I could mention was that the outside decking could of done with a lick of paint but that wasn't a major issue and didn't affect our stay. Overall a great cabin and looking to stay again next year. Steven Gardner, Ashington

+ Well we were not disappointed when Yew Tree came into view, although other lodge's are close by Yew Tree feels secluded especially in the wonderful hot-tub. The lodge itself was comfortable and functional. The lodge is in an excellent location on the park been very close to the main complex. - We did however have some cleanliness issues in the bathroom (this did not distract from the wonderful holiday). The lodge would benefit from a BBQ or at least somewhere to stand one ( was a little jealous watching other lodges close by enjoying BBq's when we could not). Mark Hayward, Cleveland

Thank you for your review, Mark and letting us know of a couple of things not quite right for you during your stay. The cleaning should have been to a high standard and we were sorry to hear that on this occasion it seems this was not the case. It has so far received very good cleaning scores and as a company we have high expectations. We have contacted the cleaning company responsible and passed on your comments. Had you contacted us at the time the housekeepers would have returned to put things right although we do realise that should not have been necessary. Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience caused. We note your suggestion for a BBQ although due to guests not cleaning them in the past and complaints received, the owner only provides a slab or frame on which to use a disposable. With that said we assume from your comments and ratings that you went on to have an enjoyable stay. The lodge offers great value accommodation for families or couples looking for a relaxing holiday in the Lakes, and comes complete with a hot tub!

Thank you for your comments, Stuart and letting us know you had a great weekend at ‘Yem’. New to our portfolio this year and already becoming a popular choice for those looking for comfortable accommodation at a very reasonable price. Cosy and equipped with all home comforts, the ideal base to explore the Lakes or simply to relax and unwind in a beautiful location. Not forgetting the addition of a hot tub – very inviting after days out walking. We would be delighted to welcome you again in the near future.

About White Cross Bay
