Absolutely loved our stay at Footprints by the Lake. The lodge itself was so spacious and to a very high standard and the location, so close to the Lake, meant the views were incredible. The hot tub was a wonderful addition and great for soaking achey legs after lots of walking. The park itself was ideally situated for exploring the Lakes, with Bowness and Ambleside being within walking distance and a nearby bus stop meant we could explore further into the Lakes without needing to drive anywhere, with very regular buses.

Thank you for your review, Maria. This is a great lodge to choose for a break in the Lakes and we are delighted you thought so too. Beautifully presented and equipped for guests to simply relax and unwind in comfort. This modern and spacious three bedroom holiday lodge with hot tub really is a wonderful place to stay. We do hope you will return again soon.

My family and I stayed Monday to Friday in late Sept into early Oct 2020. The lodge was immaculate and is finished to high standard. The whole process for access etc was easy and done via text messages for access code for barriers and key boxes. The views from the lodge were first class and location literally stone through from lake. Hot tub was great of course. The location of the site is under 10 min drive from Bowness on Windermere so again great. Very little to complain about - only very small thing was that the hot water in the shower of the master bedroom ensuite didn’t warm up but I’m really scraping the barrel. I would highly, highly recommend to anyone for a stay.

We had a fantastic stay at footprints by the bay. The lodge was clean and very well presented. We stayed as a family of four and there was plenty room for us all. The lodge has a fantastic view of the marina which can also be seen from the lovely extra addition...a hot tub. Whitecross bay is in a great location. It was a short walk to the town of Windermere and a bus ride away from both Bowness and Ambleside. We would highly recommend and can’t wait for our next stay.
