Short stay for a special birthday

The lodge had everything you need for a comfortable stay. We have stayed on this park several times previously and always found the lodges to be cleaned to a high standard.Unfortunately this time our accommodation hadn't been cleaned very well before our arrival. However this didn't spoil our holiday and we had a lovely break.

Review date: 14th January 2019

Thank you for the review, Karen. We are delighted to hear you enjoyed your stay although we are sorry that the lodge was not quite as clean as expected. It is unusual for this lodge and whilst we are sure it was a one off, we have spoken with the cleaning company responsible to ensure something similar will not happen in the future. Thank you for letting us know and please accept our apologies. Woodside is a comfortable and cosy three-bedroom lodge, a great place to relax or to explore the Lake District. An excellent location – And not far to the Crafty Baa in Windermere!

Weekend stay..

We have been looking forward to this weekend for some time, the accommodation living area was lovely, and very dog friendly, Lovey to relax in on a evening,.... however the bathroom and en-suite require attention, We felt the smell of damp and damp loo paper, supplying photos was enough to raise concerns upon returning home, after checking online for any other dog friendly accommodation on the site which the website said was full, we stayed, we have been advised as we did not raise this while staying there, its too late, I understand the accommodation will have attention on the bathrooms for others using this property in future, the decking does also require attention, and upkeep, lighting outside around the hot tub would also be a good idea to light the stairs would help future people staying especially if taking children...

Review date: 25th September 2018

Thank you for your review, Guy. We take on board all you have said and we are very sorry for the issues experienced. We are keen to address any issues that arise in a lodge although after following up on the issues raised, no damp problem has been found. Having said that we will continue to monitor the lodge closely. Whilst we note your reason why you would not do so, had you contacted us during you stay we may have been able to resolve matters for you. Our aim is for guests to have an enjoyable stay and it is disappointing to hear when something goes wrong. We have responded to you directly and we trust to your satisfaction. If we can help further please do contact us. We are very sorry and can only apologise for any inconvenience caused. Woodside is a three-bedroom holiday lodge with hot tub, an ideal way to relax after days out exploring the Lakes.

Summer break 2018

Having stayed previously I was disappointed that little maintenance has been done since our last visit 18 months previously, the external decking in all areas need to be reviewed and especially cleaned, the entire balustrade is covered in webs. The location on the park is one of the best but the forest has had new additions that makes the side of the cabin rather busy with foot traffic so the hot tub isn't as private as before. The cabin has all the comforts of home and enough seating etc for a large family with guests.

Summer break

First visit to the Lake District didn’t disappoint. The White Coss Bay site was very nice, clean and friendly, although reception staff were not overly friendly. Woodside Lodge was everything we had hoped it would be, very well equipped kitchen, lots of utensils, crockery etc. Washing machine/ dishwasher with relevant washing pods was a nice touch. Great lounge area, plenty of room as only four of us stayed but feel might be a little cramped if there was 6 . Bedrooms were clean and comfortable although the third bedroom with bunk beds really was rather tiny but would have been ok for young children. The hot tub was fabulous and the surrounding decks provided ample outdoor space for us to relax. All in all a thoroughly stress free relaxing stay, would absolutely recommend and will definitely return to this lodge.

Lovely relaxing long weekend

The lodge is lovely and very comfortable, we chose the location as we are familiar with whitecross bay and wanted to be nearer to the dog walking woods. The hot tub was fab especially with all the snow we had, it was a great start to the day and a relaxing end of the day treat. The lodge has everything you need and more. The only niggle we had was the cleaning, just looked like it was a quick rush job, we didnt let it spoil our weekend but i did have to wipe down some areas. Also the outside, there was left over half eatten dog toys. (We didnt want to make a fuss by asking someone to come out as we wanted to start our break as soon as we arrived) However we wouldnt let this put us off booking again as we were more than happy with the location and lodge itself.

We spent Christmas 2017 at this lodge 22nd-27th December. All 5 adults absolutely loved their stay. All the personal touches we arrived to e.g. Christmas tree, Christmas lights & so many more personal touches made us all so happy when we arrived! The lodge it’s self is amazing very clean and spacious, also the couch is the comfiest couch ever! Hot tub was amazing also. I would say the lodge positions is one of the best on the site abit set back from the others but this makes it more private. This lodge made our family’s Christmas would 100% book again. Only downside is 3rd bedroom is extremely small but the bunk beds are usual size of a single bed. In addition am not sure if this is part of the lodge but I got WiFi on my phone the whole stay!

Woodside lodge

Beautiful lodge in a nice spot. Family enjoyed the hot tub. Only negative was the decking as although there are some anti slip strips going to the door the rest of the decking becomes like ice once wet. I think someone could have a serious fall so would be better to coat the decking of have the anti slip strips all over. Beautifully done inside with everything we needed.

Review date: 14th October 2017

We appreciate your comments Carol, thank you. We are aware that the decking can become slippy when wet and although we do check and maintain the decking on a regular basis we are looking for a more permanent solution, more suited to the lake district weather. In the meantime we do advise guests in advance to be extra careful in wet weather and anti slip strips are there to help. Woodside Lodge is indeed beautifully presented and the hot tub is a real treat! As you had such a good time perhaps we will welcome you again in the near future?

Beautiful lodge in a quiet location

Woodside Lodge is a beautiful lodge in a quiet location on the park, close to the lake. The lodge has a very spacious living and dining area and 2 good sized bedrooms and 1 small bedroom which is really only suitable for small children. We found the lodge to be clean, comfortable and well equiped. There are 2 bathrooms which really is a plus for us and our 3 children. The outdoor space surrounding the lodge is very spacious with a terrace running from the front all around the side, a hot tub and an astro turf area all fenced and gated...perfect if you have small children or a dog. We needed help to turn the heating on and the staff at Lake District Lodge Holidays addressed this within 20 minutes on our first evening, excellent customer service. I would highly recommend a stay at Woodside Lodge, my family and I had a wonderful holiday.
