Great Place with lots to do

We stayed here for a week at end of March and was really good. Lodge is beautiful and would recommend to anyone and location is pretty private. Holiday Park is good for families as there is a clubhouse with activities etc but if that's not your cup of tea then you can go and explore two nice towns in Windermere and Ambleside. We walked up to Wansfell Pike which was good and can also recommend Scafell Pike if you want a challenge, the drive and climb is worth the views if it's a clear day!

Perfect retreat in the Lakes

We were fortunate to book two short breaks in 'Owls House' over the past couple of months along with our westie dog. A very well equipped kitchen with lots of modern touches. The basics including tea, coffee and sugar were left in the lodge on both occasions and there was also some culinary basics too. The lodge is very cozy and welcoming. It was quite cold outside being Dec/Jan but the heating inside was lovely.The lodge is in quite a private area up in the 'trees' and the new amazing hot tub just makes it perfect. We had issues with the old hot tub but Lake District Holidays and the Owners of the lodge were quick to communicate and ultimately offer a resolution. We have stayed at White Cross Bay on a number of occasions and would definitely book Owls House again, hopefully when the weather is a little warmer. Thank you Julie and Phil (Owners). Thanks also to Mark (Lake District Lodge Holidays)

Thank you for your review and leaving such kind comments and super ratings, Robert. We are so pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay at Owls House, twice! The lodge is superb for a relaxing holiday in the Lakes and as the area is super dog friendly we’re sure your westie had a great time too. Whilst we apologise a problem occurred with the hot tub during your first stay at Owls House we were pleased it was resolved to your satisfaction, with a brand new hot tub installed. This lodge is impressive, and beautifully presented for guests to simply relax in comfort. We are delighted that you are looking to return during the warmer months and look forward to welcoming you again.

We had a brilliant holiday here and was made to feel very welcome. There is lots of things to do here with the Beatrix potter tea rooms just a ten minute drive down the road which was great for the kids and adults if your a fan . The clubhouse was great very family friendly with lots of activities for the children and adults . Also serving great food and drink at reasonable prices .

Owls lodge

Lovely cottage and perfect location for us as a family, as very quiet and cosy. the tv didn't work in the bedroom which was a little shame as the children would of watched it to settle in the evenings, (it kept saying no signal). we overcome this and it was not a major issue. hot tub was lovely, temp went down which we couldn't fix, but it was still nice. the living area was lovely and cosy and the sofa was amazing, nice space for us all and the dog.. added bonus of sky tv too.. would return to this lodge

Would stay again!

Lovely little lodge in a lovey location, plenty of walking routes around and easy access to ferries across the lake :) enjoyed our stay, lodge was lovely and clean and well presented. The hot tub was amazing and definately a highlight! No issues at all :) easy to book, easy to access the lodge and plenty of instruction about checking out etc. Information also provided in the lodge about local walks, shops, pubs etc. Very helpful.

Ideally placed for a dog friendly break in the Lake District

A high quality, clean, well-equipped and modern dog friendly lodge, situated in a very convenient location for accessing all areas of the Lake District. The owners have thought of everything that visitors could need during a stay. Excellent.
