Marine view

The lodge was beautiful and very comfortable and modern, it had lovely views of the lake and marina. Only thing that let it down was parking at side of lodge, it was really tight to get round as there is a lodge ajasent with a large balcony causing an obstruction. And if the park is busy you would really struggle to park your car there. You do have the option of the car park which isn’t far away but I like to park at side of lodge. Also on arrival found the wooden decking really slippy and there was no warning sign. For health and safety and common sense there should have been a sign especially as there is a few trees above decking dropping leaves which made it worse. Overall it was a really nice lodge but parking for us is a big issue just be aware.

Review date: 10th May 2019

Thank you for your review, Susan and making us aware of a few things. We can only apologise that you had a little trouble parking the car. This has not been mentioned before, although depending on the size of vehicle some spaces may be trickier to get into than others. We will check and advise future guests accordingly. Similarly, we will assess the condition of the decking and make sure a cautious sign is visible to guests. Thank you for letting us know of your concerns and we are sorry for any inconvenience caused. Having said that we are delighted you enjoyed the lodge. Marina View is a prestigious three-bedroom holiday lodge with fantastic lake views. Can it get any better?

Beautiful location right on the edge of the lake.

Stunning views of the lake and hills. Loads to do. We went walking, boating, golfing and also eating and drinking. Used the bus stop outside the park a lot to get around. Also walked into Ambleside a few times. The site is clean and well maintained. And safe, with security patrol at night. The lodge was perfect too, except for one drawer in the kitchen which had crumbs in. I guess it had been missed by accident as the rest was immaculate. Lovely and warm in the lodge. Bathrooms basic:clean but small. Showers a bit feeble, especially if the other one also in use, or dishwasher on! Towels lovely a nd fluffy and bedding soft. Sofas comfy too. Didn't use the swimming pool so can't comment. A hot tub would be a nice addition as most others seem to have. Had a n amazing week Thank you.

This is a beautiful three-bedroom holiday lodge with lake views - equipped for guests to simply relax and unwind in comfort.

This is a great place for anyone visiting the Lake District and we are delighted to hear you enjoyed your stay. Perhaps we shall welcome you again soon.

Beautiful stay

We loved our stay at Marina View. The location of the lodge couldn't be better, right on the lake shore with stunning views. The lodge was very clean and provided everything you should need for a comfortable stay. We didn't use the facilities at White Cross, opting to eat out or on the decking at the lodge, but it looked ok and very family friendly. Our 2 children loved the stay as much as we did and enjoyed playing on the grass area in front of the lodge and feeding the ducks every morning. We enjoyed it so much we have booked to return next Easter! Also the service from Lake District Lodges was fantastic, easy to use and there if you needed them for anything.

Thank you very much to the staff who provided all the balloons etc on our arrival. My father in law very much appreciated it. Would recommend this lodge to anyone & will hopefully return again soon.

A fantastic lodge in a stunning location

One of the best lodges we’ve ever stayed in with a stunning view. Would highly recommend for any time of year. The free health club facilities are a real bonus as swimming pool on site was booked up and glad we used the health club instead.

Excellent Lodge. Excellent Location. Excellent Customer Service.

The lodge was spotlessly clean and offered all the home from home amenities. The decking area overlooking the marina was a lovely, peaceful place to relax in the evenings. I would firmly recommend Marina View and wouldn't hesitate to book again.
