Welcome to Laughing Duck, a three bedroom holiday lodge with hot tub

Welcome to the gorgeous Laughing Duck Lodge, named after a raft of ducks which frequently visit ‘asking’ for food when people are sitting on the deck! This modern and spacious lodge is located in the partially wooded Langdale area of White Cross Bay. It enjoys a quiet, private location at the bottom of a small cul-de-sac. Outside there is a large spacious deck with a secluded hot tub – the perfect escapism. Laughing Duck is ideal for families or couples and will sleep up to 6 guests plus an infant in a travel cot. We think you’ll go ‘quackers’ for this lodge!

The lodge welcomes up to 2 dogs.

Hi fay paid £1000 stay 4days And 4 night got there stay day half got told we have 2 go home cos went back lock down then only give me back £520 not good then owe me money not book again

Thank you for your review. Regrettably your 5 night stay over New Year was curtailed due to Cumbria being placed into Tier 4 restrictions and White Cross Bay having to close immediately. This was something which was out of our control and we understand our guest frustrations at a difficult time. We are very sorry you were only able to stay for 2 nights and we have made a pro rata refund based on this as detailed in the separate correspondence we have sent. Laughing Duck is a spacious, popular lodge with a private secluded hot tub and enjoyed by all who stay there.

I wish I couldn't recommend as I want to book for next year and want the best dates. It's an absolutely amazing lodge and can't wait to get back. Highly recommend everything about it.

Lovely lodge. We have been staying at Whitecross Bay for a number of years as its a good base for the lakes. The Laughing Duck Lodge is probably one of the best lodges to stay in. It’s situated in the Langdale area of the site and was very peaceful. Very comfortable for up to 6 people with everything you need.A BBQ would have been handy but not that big a deal. Hot Tub always a bonus. It was great to get away in this current climate and we were all truly relaxed after our stay. We hope to stay here again in 2021. Many Thanks
