Just back from an amazing girls’ weekend at Mistletoe Lodge. The Lodge is maintained to an incredibly high standard and is absolutely gorgeous with beautiful decor. It’s cosy and comfortable and a great place to relax and unwind. I loved the hot tub - perfect relaxation. The Lodge is in a fantastic, secluded location surrounded by trees. The owner, Kate, is wonderful and extremely helpful. I can’t recommend Mistletoe Lodge highly enough!

Just back from a lovely trip to this fantastic lodge in Windermere. Kate the owner was lovely, and kept us well informed about all the information we would need regarding our stay. The Lodge is very well maintained and decorated to a high standard, very homely as well. Also the Hot Tub was a lovely bonus. Its also situated at a beautiful part of the lake district Windermere ( white cross bay holiday park ) where you are 5 to 10 minute walk from the lake, and a short drive to Ambleside , Bowness of Windermere and other surrounding towns. It was our first time as a family staying in the Lake District, and we wouldn't hesitate to come back and stay here if the lodge was available.

5 of us (mature ladies) stayed here and we’re pleasantly surprised by the elevated and secluded position of the lodge which doesn’t show on the pictures. It meant more privacy especially around the hot tub which was delightful. Very well equipped and laid out the host had thought of everything you may need. We used buses, which stops outside park to access surrounding areas so car never left the drive.

We have just spent a weekend break at the Mistletoe lodge. This lodge is beautiful and very private. Hot tub was a right treat and outdoor seating/decking was enjoyable on a sunny day. Great location, right next to the Marina. Kate (the owner) was very accommodating. We will stay here again! The resort has a children's play area, indoor swimming pool/spa and a pub, so great for families.

The lodge surpassed our expectations in terms of its location and how lovely it is inside. It’s tucked away in the park and is completely private, but only a five minute walk from the pool, shop, and play area. We spent a lot of time at the Brockhole visitor centre which is only a 15 min walk away and has a great adventure playground and lovely walks. Do book well in advance if you want to try any of the tree-top activities though as they were full all week.

My family and I spent 4 nights at the Mistletoe lodge and our experience was everything and more. Clean , immaculate , Cosy, relaxing and fully equipped lodge meant we did not have to think of anything and could just enjoy our stay. Plenty room Round the lodge And a large fridge freezer allowed us to fill it will all our needs. Will definitely recommend to our friends and family and will re visit mistletoe when we get the chance to come back down from Scotland.
