Lovely lodge, nice location, ideal

A stunning lodge, very clean, all the things you need. Location was lovely, central for everything, hot tub was nice and also the sail shade should lakes weather be as usual though the hot tub did cut out a few times when jets were on (being looked at after u told them!). Can't really fault it but for those staying be aware you don't get access to the onsite pool, it's one down the road at choices leisure centre. Only downside for me this, again have suggested it would be a good change! Park location superb in case you aren't aware. Brockhole next door, 10 mins walk at best. There you have lots to do and access to ferries to see rest of the lake. Idwal

A perfect getaway home away from home!

We are pleased with the overall cleanliness and facilities provided by the lodge. The bedrooms were comfortable, the kitchen well-equipped with new utensils and crockeries and the living room comfortable. For those who drive, this is a great location to the villages and towns in the lake district. Will definitely consider staying here again if we are back at the lake district!

Perfect first time stay in a lodge.

Absolutely stunning lodge perfect for families who need a little break away from home, but still the comforts of home with a massive bonus of a lovely relaxing hot tub. The lodge is in a great place the site is fantastic clean and well looked after. The lodge is within walking distance of the lake perfect for a little stroll with the kids to see the ducks and boats. Inside the lodge is spacious and lovely modern feeling, fantastic storage, clean and tidy. Having the hot tub was a massive plus especially knowing that it was checked during our stay kept clean and safe. Would highly recommend using this lodge. Great small getaway for the family x x

A Cosy Squirels Snug

We had a lovely stay at squirels snug. The location of white cross bay holiday park is ideal for exploring the lake district and the lodge its self is in a good position within the park. We were a group of 4 adults and I think realistically in terms of size the lodge is more suited to a family with small children or a couple. The master bedroom is a really good size with an en suite, the only criticism I have is that the mattress needs replacing as it is very uncomfortable. The living room is a good open plan space along with a well equipped kitchen. The outside space is a good size and you can easily sit outside to enjoy the park and theres the added bonus of a hot tub. I understand due to the fact that the lodge backs onto a wooded area that you are bound to get tree sap and leaves on the decking area but it could do with being cleaned before guests arrive as we had to give the table and chairs a good clean before we could use them and I think this would benefit the guests especially if they have nice weather and want to sit out. I think a few things could be improved on with the lodge facilities such as it being a pet friendly lodge but we weren't provided with a Hoover and had to ask for one from lake district lodge holidays customer service however I'm sure this will be rectified. Also we obviously wanted to leave the lodge clean and had to purchase a few cleaning products as none were provided this would be handy to have just to keep the lodge nice and clean during your stay and when you leave. Overall squirels snug is a pleasant holiday home in a great location and I would recommend it anyone looking at staying here, it's a modern pet friendly lodge which allowed us 2 dogs which is usually hard to find.

What a way to celebrate

We booked squirrels snug to celebrate my 40th birthday. I wanted a lodge with a hot tub where our dog was also welcomed. We’ve never been to the lakes before for a holiday so we did a lot of comparing to find the right lodge for us. I can honestly say we made the best choice. Squirrels snug was perfect, very clean, comfortable and had everything you could need. We have already recommended to family and friends and can’t wait to return to squirrels snug for our next holiday.

An Easter Family Break

We enjoyed a lovely relaxing break this Easter at Squirrels Snug. We have previously stopped on the same site but in a different lodge. We liked the lodge’s position which was fairly near the lake, and not far from the facilities at the clubhouse. The lodge itself felt welcoming and was clean and comfortable, with the hot tub making the experience really special.
