Beautiful relaxing holiday break

When we saw the lodge from the outside it looked amazing - but as soon as we stepped in side..... well, WOW absolutely WOW!! it was amazing, the layout and colours were lovely, the rooms were a perfect size and the lodge was very spacious for the 6 of us that stayed We literally felt at home, the lodge was spotlessly clean and a very nice touch with the Lilly flowers (top marks as they are my favourite flowers) After many tiring days of exploring the beautiful Lake District, the hot tub topped it all off.... especially with a bottle of bubbly and a book! At night time it was so quiet and peacefull it was just amazing, so amazing that we was so sad to leave (I knew i should of booked 2 weeks instead of 1) Thank you so much for letting us stay in your beautiful lodge and for the price I thought was very reasonable We will definitely be back again!!

Yew tree lodge whitecross bay

What can I say other than it's a perfect lodge in a perfect place. Set in the woods and if your lucky deer will greet you at the back. It's beautiful inside and out with everything you need for your stay. Your right on Windermere lake for an added bonus with dark skies at night for star gazing. My children aged 3+8+11 all enjoyed it especially the hot tub.

Lodge in an amazing park location

We have just returned from a 2 week stay in Yew Tree lodge. The weather was very warm, the lodge's location is in a very secluded plot, it actually feels like you have no neighbours at all when you are sitting under the shelter and with It being surrounded by tree's /woods it gave us a lovely cool lodge and decking to sit in. The hot tub was great, and was checked every day by a couple of friendly lad's, we we're surprised when it was emptied after our first week and refreshed but this is apparently their standard. The lodge itself could do with some extra little touches that we felt it lacked, mainly in the kitchen. We had to go out and but tea towel's, kitchen knives and utensils, even the basics to cook simple meals we're not available. We thoroughly enjoyed our time at the lodge, and hope to return again next year.

Our stay at yew tree lodge

We enjoyed our stay apart from being bitten by mosquito we think they came from the trees we could not sit out. The lodge is the only one in the shade. We think the hot tube should be covered over this may stop people getting eaten. We only used hot tube twice. Also after taking a shower there was a very large puddle outside the door.

Thank you for reviewing your stay at Yew Tree Lodge, Robin. We note all you have said and apologise that a few things were not quite right for you. The Lake District is home to midges at this time of year although we have been experiencing an exceptionally hot summer and more are about. A citronella candle and insect repellents are advised for those prone to them and these are readily available from many local stores. Yew Tree Lodge is on the edge of a woodland and as with all our lodges a full description and photos are available to view on our website which we advise guests to do before placing a booking. We will check the shower, thank you for making us aware. We are sorry that on this occasion this lodge was not for you although we are pleased to know you enjoyed your stay nonetheless. Yew Tree Lodge offers great value accommodation and is ideal as a base to explore the Lakes.

We stayed here for 5 nights over the Christmas as family of 5 with our 2 dogs. Lovely decorated for Xmas even left us a card and presents. Very clean and beds are comfortable loads of space for storage, kitchen well equipped. Hot tub was the highlight to the stay, hot and very easy to use privacy was good as u face the woods we had deers walking past most mornings kids loved exploring the woods. Recommend this lodge to anyone it was a lovely stay.

Yew Tree Lodge is very well equipped for a comfortable stay, complete with its own private hot tub. A cosy retreat and idyllic for a Christmas family holiday.

Relaxing and Enjoyable Stay

Our family stayed in Yew tree lodge during September and one of our children is a young baby. The baby essentials we requested for our arrival were available when we arrived. The lodge was maintained and presented beautifully, its location is in a lovely spot on the holiday site nestled in some trees (which gave it that extra charm). We really enjoyed the cosy evenings in this lodge and when faced with a slight issue with the bolier Lake District Lodges team attended to this straight away and made sure it was fixed. Customer service was excellent. Communication on the run up and after our stay was excellent and informative. We would love to return! Thank you.

Long Weekend Away.

We had a lovely stay however I did feel some areas lacked in cleanliness. The microwave was thick with grease and around the top bunk of the bunkbed that was covered in cobwebs. I also went to open the travel cot which was thick with green mound. A little disappointing considering how much you pay to stay in these types of places. Location was great and lots to do around the complex. Kids loved the hot tub. 1 last thing reading the review book some people got bunches of flowers etc left out for them arriving. We never things like that should be consistent.

Thank you for taking time to review your stay, Amanda. Your comments are very important to us and although we were pleased to hear you had a lovely stay, it appears there were a few things not quite to your satisfaction. As you kindly brought these to our attention in the afterstay correspondence we were able to deal with them promptly – and we have spoken at length with the independent cleaning company responsible for preparing the lodge and (in apologising themselves) have assured us that it was an oversight. Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience caused. With regard to flowers on arrival (or bottles of prosecco etc), these are only in the lodge at the guests request and paid for accordingly. Lodges are often booked for a special occasion and some guests prefer to add an extra little something prior to arriving, of which we are very happy to arrange. Yew Tree is a superb option for those looking for great value accommodation in a prime location, and complete with a hot tub. We will be delighted should you choose to return in the near future.

Warm and comfortable

Very well equipped cabin with everything you need for a holiday. It was spotlessly clean when we arrived and the location is great. It's quite private and tucked away in a quiet corner but close to all the site facilities. The hot tub was cleaned and re-filled before we arrived and was a great feature! The cabin is warm and homely so the perfect place to relax after a day out walking.
