    “The property was filthy, bedding and towels were only clean things.”

    Floor had not been cleaned, furniture and paintwork dirty, hole in bath filled with polyfilla, boiler hadn't been serviced either according to paperwork. Just because we have dogs doesn't mean we don't want cleanliness!

    We were very concerned to see your comments finding the lodge not up to its usual high standard. Unfortunately we were unable to reach you to resolve the situation during your stay so were dismayed to read your feedback in retrospect. We have made the lodge temporarily unavailable while we resolve cleaning support issues. (Feb. '24 update. A new cleaning firm has been appointed. We are accepting bookings once again.) Please also note that all appliances within the lodge had, and will continue to have, their relevant safety checks and certificates. Property Owner

The property

This modern-style, wooden-clad cabin is situated in the well-kept holiday park of White Cross Bay, on the shores of Lake Windermere. Positioned in the heart of the Lake District, with access to Lakeland cottages, traditional pubs and beautiful walking country, this lodge is ideal for a small family or group of friends. You will feel welcome from the moment you arrive, with bright and airy colour schemes, and a plush lounge area making the most of the natural light and a lovely dining arrangement. This open-plan space will uplift your mood each day that passes. On a warm summer's day, throw open the French doors and step out onto the decking with a good book and refreshing beverage in hand. You have the benefit of being located in the quieter part of the park, yet with all the on-site facilities close by. The kids can enjoy the outdoor play centre or a swim, while you order the takeaway for the evening and take a break from the cooking. Relax in the Jacuzzi and refresh in the sauna after a session at the gym. From the lake, you have wonderful views over towards the Langdale Pikes and Latterbarrow, the perfect spot to take in scenes of orange sunsets at the end of an adventurous day. Troutbeck offers a host of amenities, while the nearby towns of Windermere and Ambleside boast many attractions drawing in tourists from far and wide. Climb to the summit of Orrest Head, walk along Rydal Water and pay a visit to Grizedale Forest for a plethora of outdoor pursuits. A well-deserved break in the wonderful region of Cumbria.
