We stopped with family in Deer Park 22 lovely caravan tho very small. Our 1st night disaster. My daughter and husband had no bedding for pull out and various things went wrong. Courtesy call next morning by Sara within 15 minutes we had everything we needed. My father often wanders and got lost heading on the main road yet again...

Clean by the lake lodge. The whole park was well maintained & clean. It was also quiet which was a bonus for us. I guess it's noisy in the summer. Loved it. The views were outstanding just no where to walk " around" the park as it's all private & also a private marina.

We are regular visitors to White Cross Bay. This time we stayed in a Caravan as we had left too late to book our usual lodge. We were not disappointed - spacious, clean, modern, yet cosy with all the kitchen appliances and utensils to cook a decent meal with. Wifi was perfect, we had no issues at all. New Years...

On arrival we found a number of issues regarding cleanliness and damage, that was reported and dealt with by the maintenance manager, so questionable whether the cleaners did clean the lodge prior to our arrival or the previous hirers didn't report any concerns. Rather more concerning was that the balustrades and newel posts were dislodged/broken/rotten on the decking especially by...

Thank you for taking the time to review your holiday.

The park is in an excellent location, you can use your car all around the park and can park close to the lake and reception/bar/pool area. Some of the lodges are on a hill so not suitable if you have walking difficulties (Skiptory howe) the park is quite small and ideal for families. We ate at the boathouse only once...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Situated on the shores of Lake Windermere in one of the most idyllic and scenic locations in the very heart of the Lake District. White Cross Bay is set within picturesque woodland, and with red deer and rabbits as local residents, a break here is sure to take you back to nature. There’s something for everyone, whether you’re looking for a quiet break or active escape. Enjoy the indoor pool, gym, spa pool, sauna and steam room to feel totally rejuvenated. For the more adventurous there’s an abundance of local walking tracks with stunning views of the Lake District or try the Treetop trek in Brockhole National Park. White Cross Bay is located between Ambleside and Windermere so there is a wide variety of pubs, cafes, restaurants. Popular eateries in the local area are Pedros, The Flying Pig, The Drunken Duck, The Albert, Zefferellis and The Wild Boar that has a very special reputation locally and nationally for its quality of food and drink experience and White Cross Bay even have their own marina on Lake Windermere with boat launching facilities – a walk along the boardwalk to see the boats and ducks is a must! The perfect way to finish your day is with a homemade meal and drink in the restaurant and bar on site.
