A great family break

We have just stayed in Thirlmere lodge 3 with Lake district lodge holidays. We found the lodge to be well situated, clean, beautifully furnished and plenty big enough for our adult family Of 4 and a medium sized dog. It was well equipped, comfortable and warm. We could not believe how lovely the lodge was considering we could take our dog too. The hot tub was also well maintained and very warm all the time. we would fully recommend first lake district lodge holidays and the lodge to anyone.

Lovely stay - nice location near the lake

We have stayed in a few of the lodges at White Cross Bay as we absolutely love it - Thirlmere Lodge was really lovely for another weekend stay and was ideally located near the Lake. We have a dog who we always bring with us and this lodge allows dogs. The lodge is very spacious, offering everything you would require together with an amazing hot tub (this is on the road side, however, it did not bother us and did not cause any issues). The only very small issue we had was regarding the double bed in the main bedroom - the bottom sheet that was fitted did not fit the bed properly which kept coming off all the time - also there are double doors opening to the decking but one of the door locks did not work so we could only use one door, however, non of this stopped us enjoying our time at the lodge. We found the lodge in an excellent clean condition and would highly recommend this lodge to anyone looking for a comfy, relaxed, home from home stay.

Lived up to expectations

Fourth year at White Cross Bay but first year not booking directly. The lodge was far superior and cheaper than booking direct. All the comforts of home but with a much improved view - already booked this lodge again for 2020 Highly recommended

Stay at White Cross Bay

My husband and I and our two grandchildren had a fantastic stay at Thirlmere Lodge! The lodge itself was clean, comfortable and well equipped! There were plenty of activities within walking distance (a definite advantage as it was a bank holiday and traffic was horrendous).We loved the hot tub and would definitely stay there again

Great lodge to stay in for a break in the Lakes.

This is a lovely lodge to stay in. Everything you could need and near the edge of the Lake. Although the hot tub is at the front against the roadway, once in it you feel secluded. Would recommend staying here.

Week in Windermere

Myself and my husband had a fab 4 days staying in Thirlmere Lodge. The location of the lodge was brilliant and it was dog friendly so we were able to take our baby. The lodge was clean and tidy and had all the things you would need for self catering. The hot tub was lovely too. Booking through Lake District Lodges was simple quick and easy and as it was our second booking we were pleasantly surprised to receive a loyalty discount! Fab service!
