Lovely lodge

Beautiful lodge was moden through out the lodge which you could not fault. The only problem we found with the lodge was poor signal to tv in the front room and WiFi signal. There was also stuff left on the floor were house keeping had not cleaned up and window cleaner left on the bed.

Weekend retreat

Popped into the lakes for a weekend for our anniversary First time we have taken our Cocker, and found the lodge an excellent place overall for our stay. Clean and well equipped Loads of room on the decking for Jasper to patrol and a gate to keep him safe. Hot tub was ace and the lodge is in a great position. Had a very relaxing time. Tv and WiFi reception was a bit iffy but We were on holiday so loads of other things to do and see. Club house is good what more could you want.

Happy hols

Beautifull lodge,very clean and a lovely place. Maybe the only thing is a small screen to the side of the hot tub as it's overlooked and an updated menu card from the restaurant but a fantastic stay.

Woodpecker Lodge

The Lidge was clean on arrival and in a good location on the park, with the woods behind. The hot tub is private and a great addition to the lodge. The kitchen is very well equipped.

Woodpecker Lodge, White Cross Bay, Lake Windermere

The lodge was in excellent condition, great range of towels bedding cutlery etc. When we arrived lodge was very clean. Hot tub was very clean and well maintained by staff throughout our stay. The only issue we had was that when it rained the noise on the roof of the bedroom and we had a couple of sleepless nights due to this.

Review date: 27th April 2018

Thank you for reviewing your stay at Woodpecker Lodge, Alan. We are delighted to read your comments and pleased you enjoyed the lodge. Whilst we note your further comments about the noise of the rain we assume that the beauty of the Lakes, the peace and tranquillity and the scenery more than makes up for the heavy downpours we can often expect from this stunning part of the world. Woodpecker is a modern two bedroom holiday lodge with hot tub, a super place to relax and unwind.
