We will return!

Had a brilliant stay here last weekend! The lodge was beautifully maintained and comfortable. The lodge isn’t fair from the main entrance and easy to find when you go through the barriers. I cannot fault anything we will be returning! Thanks!

A fab weekend!

Myself and my friends recently visited the lodge. We had a fabulous weekend and really enjoyed relaxing in the hot tub. The lodge was beautifully clean and very modern. A short walk (40mins) into Windermere with lots to do! Thanks for a great weekend :)

Lovely lodge great setting excellent location

The lodge provided excellent accommodation for 4 adults. All the facilities were of a high standard and having the beds made on arrival was great. The hot tub was fantastic. We were out a lot so did not use any of the facilities onsite but Windermere and Ambleside offer lots of lovely places to eat and relax. The details provided before our stay were comprehensive so no issues with directions, access etc. Offer of early check in and a later checkout would have been useful. The site itself was spotlessly cleaned and beautifully maintained. We would not hesitate in returning in the future.

Ridgway Lodge

Modern and spacious lodge . Well equipped. We holidayed as a family ( 4 adults, 2 teenagers and a toddler) and there was plenty of room for all of us. The travel cot that was provided in the lodge fit well in the larger twin bedroom. It was great to have the en suite too with all of us .The area it’s in is very quiet despite the closeness of the surrounding lodges and caravans. It’s a short walk to the clubhouse and pool.Excellent base for exploring the lakes.Hot tub was a bonus and enjoyed by all.

Lovely modern lodge with hot tube

We stayed in this modern lodge for 5 nights with three elderly relatives. The lodge was perfect. There was parking spaces for two cars, a ramp for easy access, a large living room and kitchen / dinning area, there was two nice bedrooms with two single beds in each and a modern clean bathroom. Our double bedroom also had a great en-suite with a walk-in shower. Everything was in great condition. We loved the decking area and thanks to some marvellous weather we spent many hours sitting outside enjoying the sun and relaxing in the hot tub. A maitenance person checked the hot tub each day and it was in very good condition. The living room had comfortable leather sofas and a good quality wide screen television. The only minor issue was we struggled to get much of a WiFi signal. Whitecross Bay is very attractive, with lots of trees. We also visited the restaurant and bar which were very convinient and served decent food. We would definitely come back.
