Stayed in a 3 bedroom superior lodge, although a little pricey well worth the money. Lodge was ample sized and the veranda was decked out. Perfect place to relax. We stayed in Bowness lodges amongst the trees which provided some much needed shade from the heat whilst also allowing for lying in the sun. Short walk to lake Windermere where... More

As we approached we immediately loved it! A lovely quiet area with woodland all around. We saw deers walking across the path and bunnies around everywhere.the facilities were great and the staff when needed were friendly. A short walk down to the marina a is a must,although our little dog was poorly after sneaking a drink! There is a notice... More

We've stopped at a few holiday parks in lodges before and this was the best yet! Had something for the whole family. We have a speedboat so was a bit unsure of what to expect with regards to launching/mooring etc, all the worries were put to rest as soon as we got down to the marina! Met there by Ian... More

Just back from a wonderful three-day stay at Owl's House in White Cross Bay, booked through Lake District Lodges. Stunning cabin (really the word 'cabin' does not do it justice), superbly done-out and with a show-stopper of a hot tub. Overall the park was great, had a decent meal at the bar one night (simple stuff, but decent price) and... More

Lovely and chilled out weekend with my partner on White Cross Bay. We stayed Friday to Monday in Calgarth 53 lodge which we got at a really good price off www.lakedistrict-stay.co.uk. The owner told us that it is to undergo some refurbishment hence the reason for the current prices being so reasonable! It was a great lodge, it was clean... More

4 day break in 2 bedroom lodge. What a break. Fantastic location, quiet park. Lovely walking distance to windermere or ambleside, or bus stop right outside. We used this in a couple of occassions to get great access to the lake district. Great base camp for our first visit to this neck of the woods. Would definitely stay again.
