Father's 60th Birthday

Tranquil waters was beautiful lodge. It had all the creature comforts of home with the added bonus of a relaxing hot tub. The location of the lodge was ideal alongside a river that run into Lake Windermere. Views were fantastic. Couldn't have wished for anything more.

Tranquil waters

This beautiful lodge is in an absolutely stunning location, slightly wooded and looking out onto Lake Windermere. The lodge itself is immaculate and has everything you could need for a comfortable stay and the hot tub with outer decking just makes it even better. I’d highly recommend this site to anyone, the staff are extremely helpful, friendly and accommodating. Such a gorgeous little place for a short stay or a fortnight holiday.

Poor lodge in good location

Dirty old and musty ruined our short break. The lodge was run down and needed a deep clean all through the furniture was tired and carpets curtains and cushions smelt . Rails hanging off the walls rusty en-suite shower dirty grout . The oven was thick in grease as a result filled the lodge with smoke and set smoke alarm off. Dirty beds and bedding . A never ending list of faults

Thank you for the review. We are fully aware of the issues you encountered after you kindly brought them to our attention near to the end of your stay. We can only apologise further for the disappointment you experienced whilst staying at this lodge. We do advise that guests contact us at the beginning of a stay so we are able to rectify the problem to your satisfaction and without causing too much impact on the whole stay. Your main concern was cleanliness and we accept it should have been to the high standard that you are entitled to expect from one of our lodges. It appears on this occasion a few things were overlooked. We can confirm that these matters have been dealt with and fully rectified - and as a direct result of your experience the lodge will be closely monitored in future and we are reviewing our procedures. We are confident that this was a one off although should you wish to discuss further the circumstances relating to your stay we will be happy to hear from you.

Great location, lodge a little tired

This lodge is in a great location with Lake views and has a large hot tub. Unfortunately, having stayed in a newer lodge for the previous six nights, this lodge is a little dated. There was everything you could need for a short stay but the ensuite desperately needs updating together with the mattresses in the twin bedroom.

Review date: 13th November 2017

Thank you for you review, Victoria. We note your comments and we can only apologise that there were a few things not quite to your satisfaction. We will check the mattresses for any sign of damage and pass on your further comments to the owners of Tranquil Waters for their reference, although we note and are pleased that you enjoyed the location of the lodge and hot tub. We assume that you had an enjoyable stay as Tranquil Waters is in a prime location and fully equipped to comfortably accommodate up to 5 guests - we were delighted to hear your children had fun at Grizedale Forest, Go Ape is so much fun, although a little hairy at times.

Tranquil Waters

Very pleasant, quiet, and just what is needed for a short respite. The hot tub is relaxing but ideally should be more sheltered from autumnal leaves. A simple pop up gazebo would be good enough as the parasol was not big enough and was broken.

Weekend stay at tranquil waters

Stayed at this lodge with my family and friends to celebrate my birthday. Booking the lodge was easy and the staff were extremely responsive and answered all of my questions quickly. The lodge was everything that was described. Great overall location, fantastic on-site facilities. The lodge it's self was of a high standard and the hot tub was an added bonus. The only improvements I would suggest is that the hot tub had a fixed shelter of some sorts as the rain spoilt our use of the hot tub and better outdoor lighting for the evenings. The reception staff at white cross bay could also look at ways to improve the signage and directions around the park as when we arrived we struggled to find the location. Would definitely return using this company. Thanks for a great weekend, we'll be back!

Family holiday

We loved it and the lodge was in excellent position. Only problem was an over sensitive smoke alarm but we would certainly come back to Tranquil Waters and highly recommend it.

Review date: 29th September 2017

Thank you for the great comments, Rachel and rating your stay so highly. We are delighted to hear you had an enjoyable family holiday at Tranquil Waters, in fact loved it. As it can accommodate up to five people it is a super option for families, and add in the lake views and hot tub for a very relaxing stay. We appreciate you letting us know about the smoke alarm and we will check this, although it is pleasing to know it is super effective! Very kind of you to recommend Tranquil Waters to others, thank you. We look forward to welcoming you again for another family holiday (complete with your loyalty discount!).

Tranquil Waters

Overall we enjoyed our stay at tranquil Waters, there were a few problems with the lodge, couldn't open the draws in the single room,couldn't get into the wardrobe in the twin room, broken dining room chair leg, lights outside not working, no light on the electric fire patio was dirty curtain falling down plughole bathroom dirty and a broken spatular in the kitchen. On the plus side the lodges location was excellent and we enjoyed the hot tub.

Thank you for taking time to review your stay, James. Your comments are very important to us and although we were pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay we apologise there were a few things not quite right for you. Occasionally we aren't aware of the odd maintenance issue that arises and as Tranquil Waters has only recently become available as a holiday lodge, yourselves being the second guests to stay, it was not something we expected to hear. We apologise for any inconvenience caused and can confirm that these minor niggles have been addressed. We would have gladly resolved these sooner had you let us know at the time, and with little impact on your stay. Tranquil Waters is a very welcoming lodge and in a beautiful location looking out towards the lake, complete with a hot tub for a relaxing holiday in the Lakes.
