Brilliantly equipped, family friendly losge

Tanglewood is a fantastic lodge at White Cross Bay. The location in the park is great, it was lovely being so close to the lake. The lodge itself was brilliantly equipped, a home away from home. The lodge was very clean and we had everything we needed. Loved having a washer & dryer (especially with 4yo and 8mo daughters!). Would highly recommend a stay here

Excellent stay in a superb lodge

We stayed here for 4 nights during the October half term. The communication prior was excellent and we checked in easily on the day. The lodge was modern, clean and comfortable and a perfect base to explore the Lakes. The park is right next to the Lake and the lodge itself a 30 second walk from the lake. We used the indoor swimming pool for the kids pool party and ate a couple of times in the bar/restaurant. It was very busy and sometimes reception couldn’t cope with the numbers but that was a seperate entity and not part of Lake District Holidays. We will certainly return!

Pleasant lodge for a break

We spent a week in the lodge, it was well presented with nice touches like dishwasher tablets, washing up equipment and plenty of equipment to cook your own meals. Well sized fridge/freezer. Park Wi-F and phone signal poor as mentioned in the listing this may be an issue for some more than others.

Very enjoyable stay

We visited Tanglewood in a party of two families- 4 adults and four children in total. The lodge was plenty big enough for all of us and very well equipped. It was very comfortable inside with nice decked area outside. The children enjoyed the on site playground and football area and proximity to Lake Windermere was lovely. We would definitely stay here again.

Easter at Tanglewood

Loved this lodge! It has everything you need for a great stay - well equipped kitchen, comfortable seating and cosy bedrooms. It is a short walk from the lake and the little wooded area behind was a great place for an Easter egg hunt. The facilities on site are great too.

Nice weekend in near Ambleside

A lovely lodge with plenty of home comforts and little extras in case you forget the odd thing. Lots of information and even tried out a walk from one of the books I the property. Can't fault the lodge itself by wouldn't return as the park itself could do with a little more updating and the properties are too close together for my liking so lack privacy.
