The lodge location is fantastic, the facilities at the lodge and on site are superb, the fact you can take dogs into a small area of the restaurant was a major plus, overall a great location for a family break

Lakeside Lodge - beautiful spacious lodge with amazing views

Stayed here for 2 nights in March and had a wonderful stay. The lodge is spacious, modern and I was surprised how close we were to the lake. The view is unreal. The hot tub was delightful and very private Would recommend this place to anyone. The park is nice not too busy and great location. We ate one evening in the parks restaurant, I didn’t rate the food at all too many nice places to eat in Bowness-on-Windermere so I would eat out or cook myself if we care again

Break for my 21st Birthday

The lodge was great and in a perfect position overlooking the lake. It was tidy and had all the essentials needed for self catering. Lovely comfy sofas great for relaxing and plenty of space with three bedrooms to accommodate 4-6 people without feeling overcrowded.

What a stunning view

From booking our stay at Lakeshore Lodge I knew it was going to be pretty special and when we arrived I could not believe how close we were to the lake and to be able to see the beyond perfect views from the cabin. The cabin itself was clean, spacious and modern and was definitley a 5 star log cabin. The park was lovely and reception was very helpful when arriving at the park, you could easily walk from the cabin to the reception/bar which was handy. We will definitely be booking again in the future and even though we properly had the best weather possible for February we could imagine sitting on the decking in summer and taking in the spectacular views. The hot tub was wonderful so relaxing and was maintained daily during our stay. Thank you for a fantastic break.

Lovely time in the lakes

We stayed as a family of 6 including 2 teenage girls and this was our 2nd visit to whitecross bay park which we just love. The lodge was kept to a very high standard and was modern inside and out. The bedrooms were sufficient for a short stay away and have to say we all thought beds were comfortable and the shower was amazing. The girls aged 15 slept in the bunk beds which to be honest they did not mind. No storage in that room but they didn't bother. Hot tub was great and very well maintained and also checked a couple of times during our stay. The lodge has a beautiful view of the lake which we loved looking at day to day. The park itself is very well kept and the restaurant was just a few minutes walk from our lodge. What can we say about that restaurant.. as well as it being the school holidays and absolutely mobbed, the staff were great so friendly and nothing was a bother for them. We ate there every night and the food was delicious, not one of us had a complaint about what we ate and every night we all tried something different. Compliments to the chef! Very high standard of food served. Only small niggle is dogs can't get in but didn't spoil anything for us. Will definitely be back next year.

Great! Would recommend

Lake District Lodge Holidays have been a pleasure to deal with from start to finish! The booking process, information provided etc have all been faultless, wouldn't hesitate to book with them again. Lakeshore Lodge itself was ideal for 4 adults (think it would be a bit of a squeeze at full capacity), but the quality of the lodge and it's scenic location was superb. The location of the lodge park is ideal for exploring the Windermere area, with Bowness being just a short drive away and having some lovely shops, pubs etc. to explore. We were pretty lucky with the weather, but the lodge was comfortable enough that it wouldn't have been the end of the world if we had needed to spend a bit of time indoors. Not quite 'sitting out' temperatures, but that deck would be a dream in the warmer/drier months; however the hot tub along with a nice glass of something was a pleasure whatever the weather! The hot tub (along with the rest of the facilities) were all very well maintained, there were at least 2 hot tub monitoring visits during our 4 night break. Overall, would highly recommend.

A week of relaxation with our new grandson

Our week at Lakeshore Lodge was just what we wanted, the location was perfect for relaxing in an evening when our 7 month grandson was in bed.we used the pool on the site a few times but the first time we went there was problems with boiler and it was too cold for our grandson. This was sorted for the rest of our stay.. Ideal location for visiting Bowness Ambleside, Keswick. We Also had a day in Grizedale Wood, and we're lucky enough that our stay. Coincided with Racing at Cartmel we took a picnic and had a lovely day. A great holiday enjoyed by everyone.

Lovely view lodge with private hot tub

Stayed for a short weekend. Lodge views great, lodge itself very nice indeed although did think bedrooms were a little cosy. All amenities appeared to be there down to even a bottle opener, bin bag, washing up liquid, bleach in both bathrooms and anti bacterial liquid shop in one bathroom. Superb veranda with furniture and umbrella. Private hot tub serviced every day. Nice area for dogs called Base Camp. Was very quiet whilst we were there, could have heard a pin drop sometimes I reckon. Weather good albeit little showery here and there but suited us being a little cooler for loads of walking.
