Could not fault the apartment for cleanliness, size and comfortness. We had never booked before at Whinfel but loved the place. Only thing was we had booked for top floor but there was no lift. This was difficult with luggage and my husband had developed a bad knee prior to us going. Also there could be more signs displayed as...

August 2016 we booked a weekend break at Whinfell. This is the 5th time i have stayed at this location and enjoyed every one of them. Great site. Activities are plentiful, with a wide range of choices from Archery to swimming. Lodges were excellent and cleaned to a high standard every time. The place makes you feel detached from daily...

Had a lovely midweek break here with my husband and 3 year old girl. Check in was great and very well organised considering the amount of people. I was surprised how busy it was for the time of year. Hiring bikes is definitely worth doing and my daughter loved being driven round on her trailer on the back. Nice selection...

Couldn't wait to return to whinfell after our last visit and have thoroughly enjoyed our stay this time. Lodge was lovely although there was a broken light (maintainence repaired but it still didn't work) Activities were great albeit expensive. Would definitely recommend the mad hatter's tea party for younger ones, and the messy play for babies. Restaurants were great- Bella...

Great house in the perfect location. Service from everyone in every place is brilliant. If a few of you, well worth chipping in for a Cabana near the pool. Left something and rang 2 days later. Alan from Lost Property was a legend and got it send back within 18 hours.
