Having stayed at Fallbarrow a number of times, and been thoroughly delighted, we thought a holiday at White Cross Bay with the additional facilities would be a nice change. The site is great, ideal location and well laid out, and generally very clean. Sadly, our caravan wasn't cleaned as well as we would expect - the main bed didn't appear... More

This was the second time we had been to White Cross Bay. It is great for children, the playgrounds, the family restaurant and swimming pool. Very safe for kids to be outside and left to play. The lodge however was very disappointing. If you book a lodge make sure you do not ask for the lodge next to the football... More

Did a 4 night stay in a privately owned lodge on this park with my young family and dog. The park itself is situated in a great spot 2 mile from both windermere centre and ambleside. It is only a 15 min walk to Brockhole visitor centre too. There is a dog walking area, kids play areas, multi use games... More

We stayed in a caravan with three children aged 11, 8 and 2 which was lovely and clean and very spacious with more than enough room for us all. It was very well equipped with everything we needed. There was a decking area around the caravan which we didn't get to use as it was raining quite often. The site... More

Stayed for midweek break with 7 yr old grandaughter in August 2014. We stayed in superior 4 berth caravan which was very clean and we'll laid out. We were very impressed with the indoor swimming pool and amenities on site. This is a great location for visiting many Lake District attractions and the visititors centre at Brockhole was just a...

My husband and I stayed here for 4 nights as a treat for our anniversary and his birthday. Beautiful place to relax and unwind. We wanted somewhere to chill out and spend some quality time together and we could not have picked a better place! Although I think people wanting to see the area would need a car, we didn't... More

Me, my partner and 2 girls both stayed recently and had a fantastic time, everywhere is kept immaculate and the only time I saw some rubbish dumped on the side of the road it was cleaned up within 5 minutes of me reporting it, the staff are all very helpful and friendly. Especially the bar staff who, when I was... More

We rented a lodge/cabin privately. We found it easily, we had been before. Lodge could have done with some redecorating, but it was clean and everything we could have needed was there even down to a first aid kit and spare light bulbs! We were there the first week in August just as the summer seemed to disappear, but saying... More
