Very nice homely feeling as we walked into the lodge. the size was perfect for the two of us, though I wouldn't like to share with two more adults, two smaller children would be fine.

A lovely experience.

On arrival we observed the excellent location and tidiness of the lodge. On entering the lodge we were not disappointed, like the outside it was well looked after clean and with a good range of fixtures and fittings. A very nice spot for our short vacation, and a nice comfortable lodge to come back to at the end of the day. The site is also in an enviable position near the lake and hosts good facilities. Thanks for a lovely four days spent with two of or grandchildren.

Our Stay at Grandpas Lodge

We’ve been to White Cross Bay many times it’s in an ideal location and caters for all our needs. Grandpas Lodge is by far the best lodge we have stayed in and we would definitely like to go back this year.

Fabulous Week in the Lakes

A fabulous holiday in the Lake District. Stayed at White Cross Bay several times before but previously in a caravan. Pushed the boat out for a lodge this time and so glad we did. Read reviews who recommended getting a private hire lodge so booked with Lake District Lodge holidays. Again very glad we did. Easy to book, very accurate and detailed descriptions meant we knew exactly what we were going to get and it did not disappoint. Customer service while we were there was also very good. Would certainly book again.

Lovely Lakes

Loved our stay at Grandpa's Lodge in Whitecross Bay. From booking all the way through to checking out all communication via Lake District Lodge Holidays was clear and very well organised. We stayed at Whitecross Bay before so know the site. The lodge was in a great position close to the waterside and has a lovely private deck. Pool facilities are great and bar/restaurant has been revamped since our previous visit. Lovely staff onsite and thoroughly recommend Lake District Lodge Holidays. We would definitely use them again.

Grandpa's lodge

We stayed at Grandpa's lodge for 3 nights in August for a relaxing break with family. Grandpas lodge was very clean and had all the home comforts you could wish for, very much a home from home ideally located in a lovely setting. We had a wonderful break and if was lovely to come back to Grandpa's lodge on an evening. We will definitely look to return next year

A fantastic lodge in a great location

An excellent lodge in a great location. Very clean and well equipped with everything you need, home from home! We loved being able to sit out in the lovely decking area and our young children could safely play there. Would definitely recommend this lodge and we would definitely stay here again. It was also important to us that pets were not allowed in the lodge.
