New Year Break

We booked this lodge for 4 adults to have a New Years break. We were very disappointed with the size of the lodge it was no way big enough for 4 adults. There was inadequate seating in the living area for us to sit so we spent most of the week sitting on uncomfortable dining chairs. The hot tub is around the back of the lodge and there is no outside lighting whatsoever making it very unsafe. The second bedroom has no room to dress, no mirror and no low lighting (e.g. lamp) so the only place to get ready is the tiny bathroom or use the mirror next to the front door which is very inconvenient. We ended up leaving a day so we will not be staying here again.

Review date: 12th January 2020

Thank you for your review. We are sorry you found the lodge too small for your requirements. We will take on board some of your comments to improve what is there but you will understand that it is not possible to make the accommodation any bigger. Being compact and smaller than most lodges it makes best use of it's layout and is ideally suited to one or two couples. The lodge enjoys a lovely, quiet location at White Cross Bay with a nice outside seating area and private hot tub.

Well worth a visit

Fantastic area, facilites, very clean. Only scored Good for comfort and condition due to chair been broken which meant 3 adults had to squeeze on uncomfortable sofa. The sun lounger bench had no cushions also bolts had eroded so had to be careful when sitting on it. We would visit again.

Review date: 27th September 2019

Thank you for your review Joanne. We are sorry to hear the chair was broken and you then had limited seating, we hope this did not impact on your stay too much and you were still able to enjoy your time in High View Lodge. Cosy and compact, this two-bedroom lodge has lovely views of the lake and beyond plus a hot tub to enjoy throughout your stay. We are delighted to hear you would return, we look forward to welcoming you back.

The smallest lodge on the park?

OK, I gave it 2 stars – 1 for the view, one for the hot tub. This has to be the smallest lodge on the park. It is advertised as ‘compact’, which is misleading – it is, in fact, ‘tiny’. Though it is advertised as sleeping 4 people, it is unsuitable for any more than 2 and, as a family of 3 we felt cramped and claustrophobic from the moment we arrived until we left. As soon as we walked in we stood in the lounge, looked at each other and said ‘you’re having a laugh’… Once our 12-year old boy had installed himself on the sofa, my wife and I were left wondering where we would sit? The only other chair was a bizarre recliner-type thing that you slid off as soon as you sat on it. We tried to solve the problem by bringing in a couple of the outdoor chairs but that made the tiny lounge so cramped that the only way all 3 of us could relax in the lodge was to be in different rooms. 1 in the lounge, and 2 in the bedrooms. Hardly ideal when we want to chill out and spend some family time together. The kitchen is so small that there was literally no cupboard space for the food we brought. It had to sit on the bench, leaving us with virtually nowhere to prepare meals; even making a light breakfast was a challenge. Any movement around the lodge involved turning sideways and squeezing past each other. By Sunday, I was on the park’s website looking to see if we could cut our losses at High View and book another lodge Monday-Friday so we could at least finish off our vacation in comfort, but there was nothing available as it was August / high season. By Wednesday we just wanted to get home. On Friday we packed up and left without a backward glance, just glad to be leaving. Actually, I should pull the star for the hot tub. It was installed right behind our bedroom, and its constant water cycling kept us awake all night. All-in all, we feel like we didn’t have a holiday. Nice view, though.

Thank you for your review of High View Lodge, Philip. Noting all you have said we can only apologise that the lodge was not quite as you had hoped. High View is indeed a compact lodge, although beautifully furnished and equipped to accommodate up to four guests. With two double bedrooms – an ensuite toilet to the master, an open plan living and kitchen area and a superb veranda looking out towards lake windermere and the fells beyond. This is a great little lodge for couples or small families looking for a break in the Lakes – with a hot tub. And a super location for exploring the area. Beautiful towns and villages are within easy reach and of course lake windermere is a stones throw. Whilst pleased you did enjoy the hot tub; we have noted your further comments and apologise it caused you some disturbance at night. We will have the tub checked to make sure it is working efficiently. On a better note, thank you for letting us know you like the view, and what a view. We do hope you will consider returning for another lodge holiday soon and we will do all we can to make your next stay an enjoyable holiday in the lakes.

Short Break

The lodge is lovely, very light and bright, with a side view of the lake. We found the living/kitchen area a little more compact than previous lodges we have stayed it, but the 2 double bedrooms were a welcome change and the hot tub was fantastic.

Our beautiful stay at high view lodge

We had the most loveliest time at high view lodge. Peaceful, comfortable, and so relaxing. The lodge was Spotlessly clean with the most amazing view of the lake and mountains. Only a couple minutes walk to the shores of the lake.An added bonus of a hot tub to which we really enjoyed each night. Would most definitely recommend and will be returning. Thank you for the lovely touch we received on arrival of a voucher for a lake cruise to celebrate our pearl wedding anniversary to which we thoroughly enjoyed. A definite 10/10 from us.

Could not have chosen any better.

Loved the location of this lodge. Superb decking all the way round. Everything you could need in the kitchen was provided from tin foil to washing up liquid. Added bonus of huge fridge freezer and dishwasher, ideal for a family. Lovely comfortable beds and plenty of towels provided. Did not use the hot tub another added bonus hope to take advantage of next visit. Loved having patio doors in the bedroom. Most enjoyable stay, looking forward to returning in the future, of all the lodges offered would definitely choose High View.
