Beautiful lodge

Our lodge was gorgeous but we found the heating a bit inadequate. It was very cold at times and we had to wear shawls at times. A lovely maintenance man did come and explain how it works but it did not help the situation. The local restaurant and bar was lovely but didn't like the barking dogs allowed in. Unfortunately I left a heat pad on the bed and a pair of glasses but have not heard if they were found. The lodge windows need cleaning. We would highly recommend this lodge. Thank you.

Review date: 16th September 2019

Thank you for letting us know of your lodge experience, John. Whilst delighted to hear Glingly Dell was a gorgeous and beautiful place to stay we were sorry the heating was not to your desired temperature. The lodge is equipped with full central heating and has the addition of a fire in the lounge for extra warmth and comfort. We can only apologise it was not to your preference. We'd be delighted for you to return and would be very happy to provide extra plug in heaters for your personal comfort, please just let us know. Noting you left a couple of items behind, we can confirm that we do have these in our lost property. As you can imagine we have a lot of guests that leave things behind and whilst we certainly do our best to return valuable or sentimental items, it is not possible to contact every guest that has left something behind. With that said, we will be in touch to arrange returning your things. Thank you for your further comments which we take on board and also for highly recommending the lodge – thank you!

Nice lodge. Shame about the WiFi

Booked for the bank holiday weekend. Check in was painless and emailed instructions good. Lodge was very clean and comfortable with everything provided that you’ll need for your stay. Location was very good within easy reach of Bowness-on-Windermere. Now the bad parts. The WiFi is next to non existent inside the lodge and on the decking. I had to walk along the end of the road to get a descent signal. I needed this for some work I had to do while I was there. This was nearly impossible. 4g signal is also very poor. The decking is also in need of some maintenance and looks very shabby. We brought disposable BBQs as suggested on the site but found there was no base to use it despite saying there was in the site description. Still a very pleasant stay but would not go back due to WiFi issues.

Thank you for your review John, we are so pleased to hear you found Glingly Dell to be very comfortable and fully quipped with everything you needed for your stay. We are sorry to hear you had a problem with the on-site WiFi, as this service is provided by the park and it is complimentary, it is outside of our control and we can only apologise for the inconvenience caused. We have noted your comments and will look into these matters further, thank you. We would be delighted to welcome you back in the future and perhaps we can help with finding a lodge more suited to you.

Lovely lodge needs some tlc

Beautiful lodge and a very good size for a family. Good location on site and well equipped. Benefit of having a washing machine to reduce costs and time spent at launderette too. May also be of benefit to give lodge some airing out between bookings - smell of damp in smaller bedroom and main bedroom has signs of damp in wardrobe but otherwise perfect. Decking area could use some tlc - but of a freshen up nothing major.

We are sorry a few things were not quite right for you and we have passed your comments to the lodge owners and independent housekeepers for their information - thank you and please accept our apologise for any inconvenience caused.

Lodge stay

The lodge was a little outdated but very comfortable there was a couple issues there was no tea towels half a roll toilet paper for the 4 night stay and 1 dish washer tablet if these had been mentioned prior to our stay we would have been prepared as we have stayed in several lodges at white cross bay

Review date: 09th August 2019

Thank you for your review Ian. Sorry to hear that there was insufficient consumables left for you. As the lodge is self catering there is only a 'starter supply' provided however there should have been sufficient for at least a couple of days. We will mention this to the independent cleaners who service the lodge. Glingly Dell is a spacious, comfortable lodge offering a great value stay when visiting White Cross Bay.

Lovely relaxing week stay at Glingly dell

Arrived here 22nd July with my husband and 2 year old. Lodge is lovely and clean, great location to the facilities. Travel cot fitted perfectly in 2nd bedroom. We had a lovely relaxing stay and weather was great! Only negative we would have is the outside/decking area, which is old and needs a bit of tlc and a tidy up. Would go back again and recommend to others.

Great stay in a lovely place

The park location next to lake Windermere is excellent. The facilities on the park are good and aimed at families. The accommodation was nicely presented and clean, although the decking outside would be benefit from some attention. It was a bit noisy in the club in the evening, but the food was fine. The take away food was also okay. The small shop is convenient. Overall its location makes it.

Review date: 27th July 2019

Thank you for your very kind review, we are so pleased to hear you had a great stay in this lovely lodge. We have passed on your comments regarding the decking to the lodge owner, thank you for bringing this to our attention.

Great weekend getaway for the family!

We stayed at the Glingly Dell for the weekend to celebrate my birthday and use it as a base to explore the area. The lodge is surprisingly spacious and has easily accommodated our family of three. It is equipped with everything we needed for our stay. It is clean, tidy, and cosy. Thank you to the owners! The location is perfect for the explorers’ base, and we eagerly look forward to our next trip over to Windermere and White Cross Bay!

A week in the Lakes

Booked this lodge for a week for my husband and I and our two children under the age of two. The second bedroom had plenty of room for a travel cot in between the single beds with room to walk around so pleasantly surprised on this rooms size. The master bedroom had a nice size ensuite and a small dressing area - the chair for the dressing area is in front of the wardrobe so that had to be moved quite a lot so the wardrobe doors could be opened. The living area and kitchen feels very roomy and our eldest son enjoyed running around in all the space. Good size fridge freezer and lots of kitchen accessories for cooking. We got an Asda delivery on our first day and there was no problem with them finding us. The decking looks a bit tired and could do with a revarnish and the gate locks on the decking stairs needed replacing as were barely hanging on. But very spacious decking space with some chairs and a table. Would definitely stay again - Shame there is no hot tub as there is plenty of room for one!
