Loved our stay at Waterbird. The cabin was brilliantly positioned on Lake Windermere. The park was accommodating and the location of the park was perfect. We will definitely be visiting again.

Beautiful lodge with stunning views. Secure decking area was wonderful for us and our dog. We had a very relaxing stay at Waterbird. The lodge is beautiful and well equipped. We had one issue with the electric oven ,maintenance gave us instructions on what settings to use but It still didn’t cook food thoroughly , hope this will be sorted out ... because we definitely want to return.

Thank you for the review, Patricia. We are delighted you enjoyed your stay at Waterbird. This is a spacious three-bedroom lodge with fantastic lake views. A wonderful place to stay. Noting you had problems using the oven, this has been checked and is working efficiently. We are delighted you would like to return and look forward to welcoming you.
