    “Lovely modern lodge located opposite the main facilities and not far from the entrance so good access to bus stops.”

    Great location for Windermere and Ambleside. We were a party of 4 adults. You can get a map of the site from the main reception. The bar area is comfortable and dog friendly. Lodge is fairly well equipped and the addition of an air fryer was a welcome surprise. WiFi is the main site WiFi and good enough to stream Netflix on the Tv in the evening. However it can be unstable at times. Lodge has all the kitchen basics you need. It’s still new so hopefully things will get added, like oven ...

    Great location for Windermere and Ambleside. We were a party of 4 adults. You can get a map of the site from the main reception. The bar area is comfortable and dog friendly. Lodge is fairly well equipped and the addition of an air fryer was a welcome surprise. WiFi is the main site WiFi and good enough to stream Netflix on the Tv in the evening. However it can be unstable at times. Lodge has all the kitchen basics you need. It’s still new so hopefully things will get added, like oven gloves for example and a cafetière would be nice but that’s just me being picky. Beds and sofa’s are fairly comfortable and outdoor table and chairs are useful for warmer weather. Couldn’t work out the heating but owner was very helpful when called and soon sorted that. Really easy when you know how. There is some instructions in the Visitors Log Book which wasn’t an obvious place to look but we got there, no problem. Site is dog friendly with a nice walk down to lake and through the bit of Woodland. Onsite shop is a bit pricey but there’s a Spar at the garage about 400m up the main road towards Windermere if you need anything. Overall, this is a nice site and this lodge ticks all the boxes for my standards. Where I may have marked it down is only through personal preferences around the seating area layout compared to other lodges I’ve stayed in. The TV is quite high up on the wall and offset to the right so it makes it a bit uncomfortable to watch, especially with 3 adults squeezed onto the L shaped sofa. A big 3 seater would have worked better along with the additional chair. However, it would absolutely not put me off booking again and if I go back to White Cross Bay I’d want to book this lodge.

The property

Willows Lodge, a delightful stylish two-bedroom lodge on the popular White Cross Bay Holiday Park, which is tucked away in Troutbeck Bridge on the shores of Lake Windermere. Set in amongst the breathtaking setting of the Lake District National Park and just a stone’s throw from the illustrious Windermere, this pet-friendly abode is the perfect place for couples, friends, and families to explore the natural beauty of the region and make lasting memories. Once you arrive at Willows Lodge, you'll be greeted by a welcoming beautifully-styled open-plan living space; make use of a fully-equipped kitchen, complete with all the essentials you need to create delicious meals for everyone to enjoy, before gathering around the dining table to tuck in over a bottle of fizz! If you prefer to dine alfresco, head outdoors onto the wraparound decking, where you can soak up the tranquil atmosphere of the area, and pop corks until sundown. On cooler evenings, retreat to the inviting sitting area, complete with a handy Smart TV, so you can keep up to date with all your favourite shows or indulge in a movie marathon. When the evening draws to a close, take your pick of two charming bedrooms, comprising a double with a Smart TV, an en-suite shower room, where you can get ready or wind down for the day in style, and a twin with a Smart TV. The bathroom is also equipped with all the usual fittings, so you can treat yourself to a revitalising shower or long soak in the tub after a day of exploring your surroundings. In the morning, take a trip to the infamous Bowness on Windermere for a pleasant day out. From here the options are endless with the variety of shops, cafes, pubs and attractions or head to the lake for outdoor activities, including a lake cruise. Across the lake, take time to visit the National Trust sites of Hill Top and Wray Castle. Stop by Ambleside to explore the array of shops, cafes, and pubs, or simply head out into the hills and take in the stunning views surrounding the town. With Grasmere, Rydal and the delights of Hawkshead practically on your doorstep, Willows Lodge has everything you need to make lasting memories in the Lake District.
