Amazing 2 nights away

Me and my partner were after a last minute weekend away for his birthday and we couldn’t have been happier with the choice we made. The lodge was beautiful and the pictures don’t do it justice. Hot tub was amazing and the bed was really comfortable. Ideal location as we could sit in the hot tub and look out to the snow on the mountains. Stunning place and right on the lake. We would love to return again in the next few months.

Amazing mini moon!

Me and my husband stayed at thirlmere for our mini moon. We have visited the lakes before and stayed at white cross bay but this lodge is the nicest by far. We were able to take our 2 dogs who also loved it! The lodge had everything we needed and more! We would highly recommend and will definitely be returning.

Lovely lodge, clean and comfortable

Stayed at Thirlmere lodge for my husband's 40th birthday. The lodge is beautiful inside, we are pretty fussy when it comes to cleanliness and comfort, so we were pleaaed witjt the lodge. We always need a king size bed as my husband is tall and our girls loved the standard size single beds as most caravan and lodges have small singles. They also appreciated the tv and DVD player in their room. The hot tub was a winner even in the rain!!! The lodge is modern and bright and tastefully decorated, the only thing we missed was some champagne flutes for our celebratory fizz!!! All in all a fab place in a fab location, we will be back.

Review date: 05th November 2018

Thank you for your comments and excellent ratings, Teresa. It is pleasing to know you enjoyed your stay at Thirlmere Lodge although we are sorry that the hot tub developed a fault when you arrived. Whilst this has now been fixed, we apologise it was not fixed for your stay. A new part was ordered and arrived on the day of your departure. We understand and apologise for the disappointment this caused although thank you for letting us know you went on to have a lovely stay. Thirlmere is a beautifully presented two-bedroom holiday lodge in a great location. A wonderful place to stay in the heart of the Lakes.

The Lodge

Lovely lodge, and quite spacious too. Everything you need for a break away in the UK. Nobody bothers you which is lovely and everybody seemed friendly too. Good location for exploring the lakes, or if you just want a bit of quiet time away.

Lovely weekend stay.

Stayed for a weekend at whitecross bay. The park is in a great location, close to Windemere centre and Bowness bay. The park is set in lovely scenery with a wooded area for walking and exploring, there is also a restaurant onsite plus a shop, amusements and a swimming pool. The lodge was perfect! Very clean, beds were comfortable, plenty of cutlery and was light and spacious, i liked how the kitchen and seating area is open plan, it meant we were still spending time together as a family while i was cooking. The hot tub was amazing and really made our stay perfect. We will definitely look to return in the future.

2018 Holiday spoilt

When we got to our Lodge the gate to the decking area was poorly adjusted which made it tricky to open and close, The Main door was difficult to unlock/lock, one of the patio doors wouldn't open, the general cleanliness of the lodge left a lot to be desired and finally one of the shower heads leaked and the shower door was hard to open /close due to roller out of track several visits from repair men repaired these issues, Also during our stay the boiler stopped working which meant another phone call and finally on our penultimate day we had 2 power outages spoiling our lunch Needless to say we had had enough and left early

Review date: 06th August 2018

Thank you for your review, Keith. We were sorry that you encountered some maintenance issues during your stay and were pleased to assist with these when you informed us about them. Occasionally we discover issues which we don't know about until guests let us know. That can be the nature of hiring a lodge. We apologise for any inconvenience caused. Similarly we have passed on your comments about the cleaning to the independent cleaners who look after the lodge. It is unusual to get such comments. Thirlmere Lodge is very popular, modern lodge with it's own private use hot tub. We are sure if you were to return you will not encounter the same niggles.
