Gorgeous lodge, the surfaces seemed clean but not under the bed, sink in the main bathroom and the seating area. Would love to go back when it's summer time.

Thank you for the review, Allen. We are so pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay at Woodside Lodge. Having had a significant upgrade (you are the second guests to stay) we are sure this holiday lodge will be a popular place to stay in 2020. Noting your further comments, we will bring these to the attention of the housekeepers and over the coming weeks we will be monitoring the lodge more closely. Despite a niggle and the weather, we are delighted you would love to return. We look forward to welcoming you again soon!

On arrival to Whitecross bay the reception staff (older lady) was very rude and abrupt, not helpful at all. We arrived at our lodge situated I. A corner of the site out of the way, perfect location especially if you take dogs as it is by the dog walk in the forest! The lodge was beautifully decorated with a comfy sofa, cushions and bean bag, all cooking facilities, utensils and pans to hand. The hot tub was an added bonus, cleaned as we arrived and prior to leaving. The downsides to the lodge I found was the bedroom carpet was dirty and clearly had been urinated on by previous animals. There was a ‘dog smell’ on the rug in the living room and bedroom carpets. I personally would have wooden floors throughout if having dogs stay! Overall though the lodge was lovely and a perfect location to explore the Lake District. We went on the bar a few times for the kids entertainment which was good and the local choices health centre that you get for free is amazing the pool was so lovely. The pool at the complex was cold and not that nice and a cost of £15 per stay. I would recommend driving down the road 5 mins to the ‘free’ health centre, also available spa facilities, which I didn’t use but looked beautiful, so much nicer! I would definitely return.

Thank you for your review, Leanne. We were sorry to hear the welcome provided by the Park Reception team wasn't as expected and there were a few cleanliness issues at the lodge when you arrived. We will pass on your comments to both the Park Management (for their reference as they are separate company) and the independent cleaners who prepare the lodge. The owners will be undertaking a significant upgrade to the lodge over the shutdown period and many of the things you have mentioned will be addressed or improved. We apologise for any inconvenience caused. Woodside is a very popular lodge in a quiet part of White Cross Bay offering great value, comfortable accommodation with the added benefit of an outside hot tub in which to relax.
