Family 70th birthday celebration

Had a great break. The lodge is in a nice quiet location close to the lake. In a great spot for launching our canoe. We used the swimming pool on site once, but found it a bit inconvenient having to book in advance. We took our dog and found the enclosed decking really convenient. As you are not allowed to leave your dog unattended in the lodge and the restaurant on site does not allow dogs inside, we found eating off site was the only option if you didn't fancy cooking. We can highly recommend the queens head at troutbeck. It's approx. 10 mins away and very dog friendly. The hot tub made our holiday more enjjoyable.

Review date: 19th November 2017

Thank you for the review, Julie. We are pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay at Mere’s Edge and trust the birthday celebrations went well. We note and are delighted that you made good use of the Parks location, with having direct access to the lake is a super advantage for those with their own canoes. In regard to the onsite facilities we apologise for any inconvenience caused, although as booking agents to privately owned lodges this is something outside of our control. We have passed on your comments to the park management for their reference along with your further comments in regard to allowing dogs in the onsite bar. For future reference we do offer all guests complimentary use of Choices Health Club in nearby Troutbeck Bridge. A superb alternative and with good opening hours, facilities and parking – and no need to book a time slot. Lovely to hear you came across The Queens Head at Troutbeck, what a magnificent spot and indeed very dog friendly. We are pleased you enjoyed your stay at Mere's Edge as it is beautifully designed and equipped for guests to relax in comfort - in addition to the hot tub for that extra little touch.

Good few days

Our stay at mere,s edge lodge was enjoyable and the position of the lodge was perfect just a stone through from the marina. Lodge is very modern but does need a little tlc and my granddaughter and her friend loved the hot tub. White cross bay is a great location for a base to explore the surrounding area and the holiday park is very well kept.Only other thing is the 10 am checkout time for 6 people all getting up and organised. If there are no new guests arriving that afternoon maybe a later checkout could be offered. Thanks for a great stay.

Review date: 22nd October 2017

Thank you for your review, Harry. We were pleased to hear that you had an enjoyable stay at Mere's Edge. A very comfortable and well-equipped lodge with plenty of room to accommodate a family of 6 – complete with a hot tub. We do regularly carry out maintenance as and when required throughout the year although there are certain things that are only possible during the quieter months – we can confirm that the lodge is due to have some work carried out over the next coming month. As the lodge is very popular we are unable (at this moment) to offer a later check out, although your comments are noted for future reference – thank you. Mere's Edge is beautifully designed for guests to relax in comfort and style, and ideally located to enjoy days out exploring the Lake District. We will be delighted to welcome you again in the near future.

Lodge holiday

Beautiful lodge in fantastic location, hot tub a good size and quite private lovely decking / seating area lodge has everything needed for a home from home break. Whitecross Bay is a lovely park near Windermere good location for exploring the Lake District. Only negative would be that the hot tub could do with some sort of canopy so it can still be used when it's raining. Would highly recommend Meres Edge.

Mere's edge stay

Lodges very spacious & well equipped, outside decked area also very spacious & ideal for eating alfresco, with the added bonus of a hot-tub! Although we had a good week it would have been even better if the lodge behind had not ignored the 10pm curfew for using hot-tub, using it every night from 10-11pm & not quietly!

Thank you for your review and we were delighted to hear you enjoyed your anniversary stay at Mere's Edge. As you have mentioned the issue with the floor in the bathroom has now been addressed and thank you for bringing this to our attention. Mere's Edge is a hugely popular, spacious lodge, close to the lake and uniquely sleeping 7 with 3 double bedrooms (and not forgetting the hot tub of course!).

Recommendable lodge

Comfortable and complete lodge ideal for a family.We enjoyed a week in this warm and nice lodge. The neighborhood is very quiet and the views from the marina to the lake are wonderful.Our children really enjoyed feeding the ducks and swans that approach the coast. After a day of hiking or visiting the area,the hot tub was a relax. We enjoyed this very much In other way ,we found everything you need to cook, also hair dryer for the women of the family! We understand that by the constant use there were a few minimum details to fix, but nothing important that prevents enjoy the holiday. Definitely we would love to comeback. Recommendable

A weeks break with our dogs in June

Very pleased with the cognition of the lodge, everything had been catered for and some great outdoor space with decking and large seating area which captures the sun. The hot tub was a welcome relief after walking all day with our two dogs. The lodge does get a bit warm when the good weather appears so a couple of standing fans maybe of benefit. The site shop was well stocked and a carryout service is available from the restaurant. Will definately return to this lodge when we visit in the future.

Review date: 23rd June 2017

Thank you for your review, Gary and letting us know you enjoyed your stay at Mere's Edge. A beautifully designed and fully equipped lodge, perfect for a weeks break for the whole family - dogs too. This stunning lodge also has a large outside terrace and a hot tub - Indeed perfect for relaxing after days out walking with the dogs. We were pleased to hear you enjoyed some glorious weather and your suggestion for a fan has been passed on to the lodge owners for their consideration, although had you contacted us during your stay we would have gladly supplied one for you. A three bedroom lodge and a stones throw to the shores of Lake Windermere, where better to be? We look forward to welcoming you and your dogs again for another enjoyable stay.
