Brightwater Lodge - White Cross Bay
Unfortunately, our experience at the lodge was poor due to the fact we were told on the day we were arriving that the hot tub was not going to be working.
We travelled up from the south coast and were contacted 4 hours into our journey and offered a full refund if we no longer wanted to stay or £100 compensation.
The frustrating part was that we were told that they were aware of the fault on the Monday and did not contact us until our arrival day on the Friday to let us know.
They were hoping the part that needed changing would have been fixed on the Friday, however the incorrect part was sent. While we appreciated this was circumstantial, what we were not happy with was the fact we had no option at this stage but to go ahead and continue with our trip. Had we of been told on the Monday that the hot tub was broken and they were hoping it would be fixed on Friday, we would have still had the option to book another lodge elsewhere.
Also, the TV in the master bedroom was broken.
It was a very disappointing stay for us and previously, we have had no issues with any of the prior 3 visits we've made to White Cross Bay.
Location and general cleanliness of the site and lodge was fantastic as always.

Bridgewater Lodge has great facilities & is well appointed. The only negative comment I can make is that the hot tub temperature dropped after our 1st night. Not a major issue as the weather was terrible during our stay so we didn't use it much. The service we received from Lake District Lodges was excellent so I've no doubt that this would have been sorted if we'd bothered to report it.

We (family of 5) had an excellent 4 night break at Brightwater Lodge in October. The accommodation suited us perfectly and the addition of the hot tub added to the enjoyment. It was great value for money.

Lovely lodge,very spacious with everything you could need, kitchen well equipped with everything you need for cooking, SHOWER great & bath towels enough for 6 guests, ideal to take your own for hot tub, short stroll to lake & clu house, , 10 mins car ride to ambleside & Bowness which both are very nice, only negative is to have a gazebo over hot tub for when it rains.

Lodge good site clean issue s with site food
Lodge and hot tub very good site very clean and secure ample parking.Kitchen items were plentiful, washer and dryer came in very useful as we did get some real lakes weather rain which did not keep us in.Although it is a dog friendly site there is only a beer garden at the pub on site where you can take dogs this area is totally uncovered making it useless in wet weather.Although i agree dogs should be allowed in pub also on site food left a lot to be desired not a major problem many fine eating places a short drive away some even deliver.In conclusion i would stay at brightwater lodge again.

Bright water lodge
Glass was left in the living area floor and my nephew cut his Gt Toe. DVD player not working in bunk bed room which was a shame. Nice log cabin and good location.

This lodge was not my first choice, it was the only one available at the time with a hot tub. The layout and location seemed fine on paper, and it is in walking distance of the lake which is perfect for morning strolls. The lodges are placed very close together which I didn't like, we were in the middle of three rows which meant we could see into the lodge behind when in the hot tub. We were also spoken to by a "passer by" who asked us to keep the noise down in the hot tub, there was only 2 of us, and we were only talking quietly, the party behind us were making noise. We could also hear music from a party nearby. People could cut through to reach their lodge, encroaching on our privacy which I didn't like. This doesn't help when the lodges are too close. The bedrooms were adequate, and the larger bedroom has a "dressing room" which will fit a travel cot in. There is plenty of storage space in the 2 double bedrooms. The bedroom with the bunk beds isn't spacious and we found it difficult to work the blind, as its very close to the bed. The toilet brushes could do with replacing also. We noticed on arrival a funny smell, which came from the kitchen. We noticed that some oven trays had not been cleaned property and were just put back in the cupboard. I ended up cleaning some myself, and having to leaving one outside, as the smell was distracting. The cash machine in the Reception was empty. Overall the accommodation was ok, but would probably book something in another location of the park next time.

This lodge is fully equipped with everything you might possibly need during your stay. It is large and spacious with decent sized rooms and comfy beds. It was also very clean when we arrived.
The hot tub was amazing and used a lot while we were there as we had very hot weather. If there was a negative to find, it is that the hot tub is very overlooked by the lodges around it. This didn't bother us, but it could bother others.
Overall, another amazing stay in these lodges for us. We will be back.

A beautiful lodge which has everything you need. Was a pity we couldn't use the hot tub while we were there due to it needing a part. Would definitely stay there again.
