Clear View

This was a lovely lodge, close to the water. We where able to sit in the hot tub and look over the lake. The same could not be said from inside until we cleaned the outside of the front windows.

Family celebration weekend at this comfortable clean lodge. The Jacuzzi made it for us all. Had worried about some of the previous posts, but we found the lodge very comfortable and clean and well equipped.. We did have a problem with the heating but maintenance were very prompt to sort this out. Chose this property as the third bedroom was two full size single beds and not bunks, so suited our requirementsWe would return.

Superb location

Really well located lodge with lake views. Nicely laid out lodge with good stocks of crockery etc. Looks a little tired in places. Second bedroom wardrobe has a lot of mould in but plenty of storage space. Main bedroom slightly uncomfortable mattress but thats being picky. It was a joy sitting in the hot tub looking at the lake. We would definitely stay here again.

Review date: 27th September 2019

Sunny brow

Lovely positioned lodge at Whitecross Bay with fantastic view from hot tub but was let down by condition of lodge needed good clean and decor looking abit tired and shabby in places, dirty plates left in kitchen cupboard. Bed in main bedroom very uncomfortable even though it has memory foam topper woke up stiff and aching back every morning and tv missing from room which would have been nice to have as stated in details. Bed in spare room had king size base at top of bed and double base on bottom with king size mattress on top totally unsuitable for size of room and caused an accident to big toe!!! Love Whitecross Bay Park have stayed on park many times loved location of lodge but due to issues would not book this lodge again which is a shame as it’s got the potential to be one of the best lodges on the site

Review date: 17th May 2019

Thank you for your review and we were sorry a few things weren't quite right for your stay. The owners have undertaken various improvements to the lodge over the last few months including a refurbishment of the bathroom and ensuite. We understand this will also include the beds in due course and we are sorry you found them uncomfortable. Sunny Brow enjoys a fabulous spot at White Cross Bay and is extremely popular with our guests.

Would highly recommend the Lake District. And Booking with Lake District Lodge Holidays.

We had a lovely 4 night stay at sunny brow lodge to celebrate our daughter’s and my birthdays. We arrived on the Monday afternoon and the park staff were very helpful with booking in etc and direction’s of were to find the lodge. The lodge is in a brilliant spot for view’s of the lake. Unfortunately we had one half a lodge that was due to be sited on the Wednesday right out side our lodge so it some what blocked our views. A couple in the opposite lodge to our had the other half of the lodge to be sited out side there lodge and were talking to the site manager about having it moved. He came and apologised and told us it wouldn’t be moved until the Wednesday when a crane would be arriving to lift it and another lodge over the top of ours and the opposite lodge and we would have to move our cars and to please be out of the lodge for the day while this was happening. l explained to manager we were only there till the Friday and had picked that lodge purposely for the location and view’s. I have to commend Darren (the site manager) he was very apologetic and did move the half of the lodge out side of our’s further down so we could get out the front of our’s and have a little bit of a view. He also gave us a complimentary breakfast on the Wednesday as an apology for our inconvenience, which has to be one of the best l’ve ever had! And would highly recommend. Apart from all of this l would highly recommended white cross bay, the staff were all very friendly and very helpful, the site was immaculately. As for the lodge it was a plenty big enough for the six of us, but a little tired, we had a bit of an ant problem ( but did get some spray) there was a leak under both the bathroom sinks, the dining table leg had a split in it. Which we did report. The on suite bedroom bed was so uncomfortable even with a mattress topper, and l would recommend they replace the quilt or you take your own as it is passed its prime (very thin and not very warm) There were a few other little niggles beer bottle tops & cigarette ends out on the decking dirty laundry left in the cupboard (bedding that had been changed) but l am being a little picky and honest in my review. The hot tub was amazing!! And the Lake District is stunning, would we go back to sunny brow lodge?!? Knowing what to expect and for a short brake, as a family we would say yes.
