A beautiful lodge with a beautiful lake view

Had a lovely weekend staying in this lodge. It was very modern, clean, and well equipped with everything we needed. Great combined living space and good soundproofing between this and the bedrooms. The lake view was a surprise. It was a wet weekend so we were unable to use the patio set on the terrace but will be back to appreciate the external views on a warmer weekend. All in all a very lovely stay. Just wish we could have stayed longer.

Weekend Break with friends

We stayed as two couples with children in this lodge and it suited us perfectly. We were visiting Brockhole during our stay so the location of site and lodge was perfect. The lodge has a lovely view of the lake and the fell in the background from front deck and window. We found the whole process very easy checking in and finding the lodge and arrived to find it perfectly clean and cozy. We would definitely stay here again

Three generations exploring the Lakes

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Mountain view. The location of the park and the lodge within the park are exceptional. The view of the hills and the lake from the lodge was lovely. Our first evening was dry and sunny and we enjoyed gin and tonics on the deck. The children enjoyed the pool and we all enjoyed some nice walks around Rydal and Tarn Howes.

Family holiday

The lodge was clean lovely location as you can look out of front Windows and see the lake which is only a couple of minutes walk. The entertainment is only 5mins walk from lodge. There's lovely walks around the area and Windermere is only a couple of miles away

Great lodge, poor site

The lodge itself was fine, no issues. Dog friendly decking was excellent as we could let our dog wander about without fear of him getting out. Campsite was outdated and lacking facilities, gym only small, shop was tiny and lacked necessities such as bread and milk as early as 9am. Pool facilities inadequate for the size of park and had to book a time slot Insufficient thought put into those with dogs. Lack of outdoor seating at camp restaurant for dog owners so didn't even attempt ti eat there. Would recommend Mountain View, but not the site. Saw a dead rat on one of the main pathways through camp and it was still there a week later!

Thanks for your review, Richard. We were sorry to hear you comments about the park itself and we have passed these on to the park management for their information. Guests who book through us have free use of the excellent local health club (Choices) just 2 minutes drive from White Cross Bay which has a gym, pool, sauna and spa pool. This offers much more flexibility with longer opening hours. That aside we were delighted to hear you liked the lodge. Mountain view is certainly very popular with guests offering clean accommodation with views across to the lake.

Great North Swim weekend

A very good lodge. Located in the Pony Meadow area of the site. As the name suggests the lodge has mountains and lake views from the decking area. Quite close to the lake side. Numerous good walks direct from the site including relatively easy access to Wansfell Pike and Troutbeck. It is possible to walk to Ambleside avoiding the road most of the way. White Cross Bay Park is well maintained and, on the numerous times we have stayed there has been generally quite quiet.
