2nd stay at Oakwood lodge

We came for our second stay at Oakwood lodge after loving our first stay there the year before. Unfortunately over the last 12 months the lodge has seemed to become very tired looking and not at all up to the standards from the year before. Also we did have a couple of nights where we were awoken in the early hours of the morning to drunken arguments from the occupants one of the parks rental caravans behind us, this is the first time this has ever happened when we have stopped at white cross bay it’s usually very quiet and peaceful. We did have a nice holiday and had wonderful autumn sunshine for most of it. Will definitely return to white cross we will just probably stop at another lodge elsewhere within the park.

Stay at Oakwood lodge

Myself and my family stayed at the lodge for three nights in October as it was a birthday present for my husband the stay was nice but unfortunately the condition of the lodge was not to the standard it was a couple of years ago it needed some tlc and a make over and some things replacing as there was some damage. The park and staff were lovely and the park quiet especially at night we was not disturbed one bit I would recommend the park as there are some beautiful lodges on there and a fantastic view from the jetty I am saying no to recommending but would if the issues were solved as it is a quiet location for the lodge to be

Late September Break

My wife & I, along with out 2 miniature dachshunds recently returned from a 10 day break at Whitecross Bay, staying in Oakwood Lodge for the 4th time in 5 years. Oakwood Lodge is positioned in an excellent location, tucked away at the very end of a cul-de-sac, so it's very quiet. Our 4th experience of Oakwood Lodge is a little mixed & although it provides a very homely & warm feel the decor & some of the furniture could do with upgrading, as this has not changed since our 1st visit, therefore things are looking a bit tired. This is a shame because Oakwood once held a Diamond rating due to it's high quality finish, which was the key factor in our returning, however we feel that the previous high standard has slipped somewhat. That said Oakwood Lodge was clean & tidy & provided comfortable accommodation for all, especially the bed in the main bedroom which is very comfortable. The kitchen provides all the mod cons, although we did require a new toaster, which Lake District Lodge Holidays replaced soon after reporting the broken original & the Hot Tub is great for relaxing in following a days walking. We will be returning to Whitecross Bay next year & it would be nice to stay at Oakwood again following some much needed TLC.

Thank you for your review, Jonathan. Noting you have enjoyed many holidays to Oakwood, we were sorry to hear that you had a few niggles this time. We will of course pass these on to the lodge owners and ask that they take on board all you have said. Thank you for letting us know of your lodge experience. Despite a few niggles we are pleased you found the lodge comfortable and well equipped for a relaxing stay in the Lakes. This is a super spacious and cosy lodge with hot tub, and a great location for exploring the Lakes. We do hope you will return for another stay soon.

A lovely lodge in a great location

The lodge is in a small cul de sac, so it's nice and quiet, the hot tub is virtually secluded, The decor, size and layout is very good. We put the heating on of an evening and the hole lodge was very warm and cosy. The hot tub was a lovely bonus and just what you need after a day of long walks. If I had to fault it, I would say the pillows and quilt in the master bedroom were quite flat, if they replaced them with some new fluffy ones, the bedroom would look far more inviting. Could also do with a bath mat in the ensuite, The leather sofas are reclining and very comfortable, it's just a shame that through wear and tear there are some rips in the material. This aside, we found the lodge a clean, warm comfortable place to stay and would not hesitate staying there again. I would recommend without hesitation.

Great mini break

Me and my partner had a great weekend at the oakwood lodge. The kitchen was well kitted out and all the rooms where clean. There was even a selection of board games and dvds to choose from in the evening. The only down sides was that there were a few light bulbs out in some of the rooms and we werent able to turn the outside spot lights on. But these were only minor things and defintly wouldnt put me off going again.

Family birthday celebration

Oakwood Lodge was very nice, clean, cosy, and the position made it feel safe but secluded. There is a very little bit of damp in the wardrobe in the main bedroom but other than that it was very comfortable and I enjoyed staying there very much.

Perfect setting

Just returned from Oakwood Lodge 26.10.18. Cannot fault the accommodation, location and facilities. Perfect for a family break with our son and furry friend. Lodge has everything you need. Additional use of the local Choices Gym was ideal. Hot tub well used after our days of walking in such amazing scenery. Will definitely be returning.
