Easter break

Had a very enjoyable stay at this lodge. We were very lucky with the weather which made the private sunny deck even more enjoyable. Perfectly positioned on the site and everything you could want was included. Would definitely return here.

Lovely break at Windermere

Stayed with wife and two young boys and we loved it. Ideal location on the park, close to the amenities but still quiet enough and very close to the lake and excellent views, especially the sunset! Lodge itself was spacious, well furnished and equipped to a high standard Would definitely return

Enjoyable stay at grandpas

Had a lovely comfortable stay at Grandpas lodge.The location was perfect, the views were stunning. The lodge was cleaned to a high standard. Would highly recommend anyone to stay here. We will definitely be returning. Hats off to the owners, everything has been well thought out. Also, there are hair driers in the lodge so you do not need to take one. We actually touched lucky as the weather was good for the whole time we were there.

Grandpa's Lodge Whitecross Bay

We stayed here for a week in August and found it very comfortable and clean and excellent location, near Brockhole, Ambleside, Windermere and a short walk from the lake. A great holiday for parents and kids alike!

Family stay

The lodge position was great, it was extremely clean and well laid out, I would definately stay again. The only down to our stay was the pool arrangements, I had two lodges so £15 each, I tried to book but could only get a slot for the Thursday one day, the water I thought was cold, particularly for youngsters. I spent £30 for one half hour swim, not good value. I know this is Park Deans problem but it will probably have an effect on future bookings. Well done great holiday

Thanks for your review, Peter. We were sorry your experience of using the onsite swimming pool wasn't that good. it is for those reasons that all guests who book through us have free use of the excellent local health club (Choices) just 2 minutes drive from White Cross Bay. This offers much more flexibility with long opening hours. That aside we were delighted to hear you liked the lodge and rated your stay as 5 out of 5. Grandpa's Lodge is certainly very popular with guests offering spacious, clean accommodation just a short distance from the lake.
