Welcome to Rydal, a popular two bedroom holiday lodge with hot tub

Rydal is quite simply a beautiful lodge. It enjoys a quiet cul-de-sac position at White Cross Bay. The lodge is very well appointed offering a stylish and relaxing holiday retreat. The owners have put a lot of thought and care into their lodge. A real bonus is the hot tub which is tucked away to the side of the lodge for privacy. Uniquely the lodge will sleep 5 guests with the added advantage of two double beds – great for both couples and families alike. Rydal is hugely popular with guests returning year after year.

The lodge welcomes 2 dogs.

Arrived on a Friday after 4 looking forward to the hot tub after a long drive to Find it was cold rang up to be informed due to COVID it had been emptied and refilled and would take a few hours to heat back up ( which was disappointing as it was not hot until the next morning)around 1/2 hr later we had a power cut looked outside to see everyone lights were still on rang up again apparently when you have a lot of electrical stuff on at the same time this can happen we were directed to outside to remedy the situation which we did without problem. Lake lodge holidays were on the ball with any issues we had, the lodge itself was fab well decorated clean and there was lots of space, his and hers wardrobes In the master bedroom and a bed that was definitely one of the most comfortable I have had the pleasure of sleeping in. All amenities were there in the kitchen and the kids room was again spacious and welcoming and it was pet friendly would definitely stay in this lodge again.

Thank you for the review, Julie. We are so pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay and delighted you would come again. Rydal Lodge really is beautiful and perfect for a relaxing break in the Lakes. We understand your disappointment to find the hot tub not ready when you arrived and we are sorry. On a changeover day the tubs need to be emptied, cleaned, and refilled which can take a few hours to reach temperature. We do hope that once it was ready you enjoyed every minute of it. As you were rightly informed the power can trip in the lodge if too many devices or appliances are plugged in and used at the same time, a quick flick of the switch outside and the power will be back on. We were pleased to help put this right for you. Thank you for letting us know of these matters and for your kind comments, we are delighted you enjoyed staying in Rydal Lodge.

Cant wait to visit again. Brilliant from booking to the end if stay perfect. The hot tub was fab.. The beds were comfortable


02nd October 2020

The lodge was lovely and clean and was plenty big enough for a family of 4 with a baby and 2 dogs. The hot tub was great and very private with no other lodges over looking it, and was also well maintained daily. However, the only problem we found was work men were working on the decking on the lodge opposite, which caused quite a lot of noise and out view from the living room was 4 white vans. It was also a little difficult to park in front of our lodge as we had to keep moving vehicles around because of the vans. However the work men were very polite. It would have been nice for these renovations to be done when there was no-one in the other lodges as it is described as a quite area. Overall a good week and may book the same lodge again.
