This is our second time staying in this holiday park, and our first staying in this lodge. It's a really good size for a small family of 3/4. The living area is spacious, with a fire and seating area. The kitchen had all the things we needed, as did the bedrooms. It was clean throughout. The decor is perhaps a little outdated, but it's not like you're there for long so doesn't matter. And the outside hot tub was amazing! Worth paying the extra to get a lodge with a hot tub for sure! My only real issue is that the lodge WiFi was really poor. I was on holiday with my partner and her mum, and after a long day's walking we liked to go back to the lodge and put Netflix on and relax, but we couldn't because the WiFi was so bad. I know it's a minor thing, and most will just argue that if you're on holiday you shouldn't be watching TV, and they're right. However we visited in late December, when it gets dark at around 4pm, and so having enough entertainment in the lodge for us was important. It wouldn't stop me staying here again. But would be handy if the WiFi could be improved. Overall another great stay!

This is a beautiful double fronted lodge. Very spacious and decorated lovely. We have stayed at White Cross Bay many times and we will stay at this lodge again. They even put up a Xmas tree for us!! There’s a stream that runs by the decking and you can see ducks swimming around the site, just beautiful. The hot tub was fab and stayed perfectly clean all week right next to a lit up tree and an umbrella for when it rained. Thank you for a wonderful week.

Location is fab and located across a little stream the lodge can be accessed from two different locations which is handy. The lodge has a cosy feel rather than modern i feel if they updated the bedding to something a little more modern that it would help ensure the lodge looks a little more modern. Hot tub was amazing and it was so nice to sit back and relax in the tub on an evening. One of the benefits of this lodge is having 2 jack and jill bathrooms so you basically end up with two ensuite rooms which is fab if you are travelling as two separate couples. We had a nice stay in this lodge and love that it is dog friendly.

Thank you for reviewing your stay at Lily Tarn, Josh and we are so pleased to read your comments. This is a great place to stay. Two bedrooms, two bathrooms, a fully equipped kitchen, a hot tub and wifi - where better to be for a relaxing break in the Lakes. Noting your additional comment to update the bedding, we will pass this on to the lodge owners for their consideration. Thank you, and for letting us know you enjoyed your stay. Perhaps we will welcome you again soon?
