Perfect family break

I stayed in Bosun with my husband and 2 daughters aged 9 and 12. The lodge was immaculate and very well equipped. The hot tub was a real bonus, particularly after a day on the high ropes at Brockhole. The park is in an excellent base for exploring the beautiful area. We will definitely return. Thank you.

Great Start to the Summer Holidays

Beautiful lodge, well equipped, very quiet. Looking to go back in 2019. The club house on site is suitable, but you’ll wait a long time for food. The kids loved the whole holiday. Everyone’s standards are different but I be safe in saying you would not be disappointed staying at White Cross Bay. The hot tub was a lovely bonus.

Lovely lodge, couple of issues but resolved suprfast so didn't ruin a fantastic time!

Lodge is located a 2 min walk from everythng; the lake, the centre, the swimming pool, the bar. Lovely clean new lodge with all the amenities you need - dishwasher, good showers with good water flow, nice bath, THE comfiest beds we have slept in for a while, TV's in all rooms, DVD player, stock of games and DVDs and books and of course the hot tub. Had an issue with hot tub not working first night on arrival but called customer service and their rep came out within minutes. Sadly couldn't be fixed BUT they did get the hot tub repairman out by 10am on the saturday and was fixed in 30 mins so excellent customer service after that disappointment. TV then went on the blink so we were really unlucky but agian came and replaced the TV within 30 mins to at least get us a TV that worked. All the utensils you need, lots of useful things left by other guests and owners in case you forget things (tea bags, condiments, foil, sandwich bags etc). Seperate fridge and freezer made things easy, typical lodge gas oven just need to learn its quirks! Once hot tub was working then in lovely quiet corner and got sun throughout the day but not overlooked so very relaxing. Great place, recommended!
