Easedale Lodge

On arrival at the park found the staff at reception to be very helpful, when we finally was aloud in enter the lodge at 15:00 was very impressed of what i booked.......... But the more I was looking round the more issues we found, we couldn't believe that the dyson hoover was left full to the rim.... that my seam petty but it rings alarm bells to me as that such an basic thing to do..... the bath room is in need of modernising or some work doing, as when you finally get the bath run what take 20 mins as water from boiler would run cold with hot tap fully open so you have to nearly close the hot tap to slow the water to gain hot water... when the bath is nearly half full there is a big gap around the bath and even more when you in the bath..... so on that note we started to use the en suite shower room........ this room has a very strong smell of drains and not very pleasant when your only sleeping next to the door...... As an British Approvals for Fire Equipment inspector (BAFE ) I found that the Powder Extinguisher (stored pressure) hasn't changed....... the Extinguising went out of test in 2013 and was new in 2003.......... so this means this would make any insurance to be void on the lodge, but the main point is putting peoples life at risk if this unit was needed to be used, and this is the same for the fire blanket. So to some it all up this lodge isn't valve for money....................

We very much regret you have had such a poor experience in Easedale Lodge, Martin. We are reviewing what action needs to be taken to rectify the faults, and any deficiencies will be remedied. We were particularly concerned at your findings of the fire equipment failures and as a result we have replaced them all. However, under further inspection they were found to be in good working order and perfectly safe for guests to use. Thank you for letting us know of your concerns and we are very sorry that these so spoilt your stay. On a better note we are pleased you enjoyed Windermere Lake and Bowness - A great place and stunning location.

Short break

We booked this lodge primarily for the disabled facilities, which turned out to be very good. The lodge was clean and well presented. Shame the weather was against us as we could not get out at all.

Only problems was it took two days and a few phone calls to get the hot tub working, and one of the single beds didn’t have a sheet on (the bed wasn’t required hence i didnt contact about this) Other than that the lodge was lovely and perfect for my disabled mum, definitely will be booking again

Review date: 06th January 2019

Thank you for your comments, Leanne and we are sorry to hear you had a couple of problems whilst staying at Easedale lodge. We are keen to address any issues as soon as we are made aware, and as soon as you contacted us about the tub we chased this up with the Park (responsible for servicing and maintaining this particular tub) and to our understanding the issue was quickly resolved. We can only apologise for the inconvenience caused, although it is pleasing to hear that once working, you made good use of it. A super addition to any lodge! Your comments regarding the spare bed have been passed to the housekeeper for their reference and we are sorry it had been overlooked on this occasion. Easedale Lodge is in an excellent location for exploring the Lake District, and the lodge is comfortable, modern and well equipped. A great place to stay. We look forward to welcoming you again in the near future

A great holiday

The lodge was a perfect place to stay while we were in Windermere. It was spacious and had a very homely feel. The weather was kind while we were there and I loved being able to eat all our meals out on the decking. It was very peaceful at nights and I slept well. The hot tub was a very welcome addition and was kept very clean and checked daily. My only gripe would be the shower in the main bathroom, went from freezing cold to boiling hot very quickly and not much in between.

Short break

An absolutely lovely short break in a beautiful location Thoroughly enjoyable On a very slight note the main bathroom is rather audible when flushed but this did not in any way spoil things and I would book again without hesitation

Lakes - June 2018

We stayed at this lodge primarily due to its location. The lodge itself is fine, it is very well equipped for those who may have a disability, but not sot well equipped if you are able bodied. I have used Lake view lodges on several occasions to book lodges and they are great, the site White Cross Bay is a Park Dean Resort, but its not your standard holiday park. Definitely going back next year - but probably a different lodge.

Review date: 18th June 2018

Thank you for your review, Vikki. We note all you have said and we can only apologise that the lodge was not quite right for you this time. Although we do take your comments on board we must point out that this particular lodge is adapted to allow for disabled access and wheelchair use, as is detailed on our website. We have many other lodges available that would perhaps be more suited to you and we always advise guests to visit our website and check the lodge description and photos before placing a booking. Easedale Lodge is very comfortable accommodation with the bonus of a secluded hot tub and in a super location for those looking to be close to the clubhouse and onsite amenities. We are so pleased to hear that you will be returning to White Cross Bay next year, Great North Swim again? A great achievement, well done!

A great place to stay at to enjoy the lakes

My wife and I had a lovely stay at the lodge. It was extremely well appointed and very comfortable. All our needs were catered for and it provided an excellent base to enjoy the lake district. After our stay we decided that hiring a lodge was infinitely preferable to a hotel room, which we had done in the past, so we will definitely return to White Cross Bay. The hot tub was a particularly nice addition to the lodge's amenities and added to the enjoyment of our stay.

Review date: 20th November 2017

Thank you for your review, Lorna and we were pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay. Easedale lodge is perfectly situated for exploring the Lakes and it appears you thought so too. The hot tub is indeed an added bonus and very welcoming after a day out enjoying the lakes. We shall be delighted to welcome you again to one of our lodges in the near future.
