60th Birthday Stay

I cannot fault Windermere Lodge, The lodge was very clean when we arrived inside and outside. The décor used in the lodge is very cosy and comforting as well as modern. The lodge itself is quite secluded even though you have lodges either side you are secluded by hedges especially round the hot tub which is where I spent most of my time. Very quite also. The lodge is in a good location even though you can not see the lake from the lodge you walk 1 minute down the road and then you are their. Also to the clubhouse and shop not far at all. Every morning and night I went to the lake to feed the swans and ducks. I took my parents for my mums birthday who have never stayed at the Lake District before and they both enjoyed the stay. The facility's in the lodge are also good. We was hoping to come back to Windermere retreat for my 30th however I think is out of season then. We will definitely be returning though.

Central location

We really enjoyed our stay. Good base for exploring the lakes. there is plenty public transport that runs regularly if you wish to leave the car. For anyone with dogs the lakes is the place to visit and lots of eateries cater for those with dogs. The clubhouse on site also now has a designated area for dogs . The facilities onsite are really good and the food is of a good standard and prices are reasonable.

Summer break at Windermere Retreat

This lodge is amazing! By far the best lodge we have stayed at in White Cross Bay. Great location on the park. The decking area at the back is a lovely little sun trap and very private. A comfortable, spacious, well equipped lodge. Each bedroom has it's own tv which was great! We even had a little robin come and visit us every day!

Many thanks for your review Garry and we were pleased you enjoyed your latest stay at Windermere Retreat. Since your last visit sometime ago the lodge has indeed changed ownership and the new owners have made it an even nicer place to stay. It is spacious, beautifully furnished and a lovely place to enjoy a break in the Lake District at White Cross Bay. It is very popular with guests especially as it has a lovely outside hot tub in which to relax. We look forward to welcoming you back again very soon!

Beautiful and clean lodge

Beautiful lodge, very spotless when we arrived could not fault anything. The veranda is very spacious with an amazing hot tub. Beds are very comfy, kitchen a great size. It is located in a great area, located about 15 mins walk from brock hole. Overall we could not fault anything about the lodge or surroundings, we stayed here last year and will be booking again for next year.

Loved It

Really enjoyed my 4 night stay. Hot tub was awesome. Location was fantastic. The only small gripe I have is the size of the bed and mattress. For such luxurious accomodation the bed should be of higher standard. Other than that it was perfect
