Upon arrival we found our caravan was untidy, there were crumbs everywhere and it had not been cleaned. The carpets were coming away. However the staff were great at resolving the issues and helpful towards meeting our needs and expectations.
We did not spend any time on resort so cannot comment about the facilities however the surrounding area was fairly clean and well lit.
Would recommend going.

wonderful location and decent accommodation . Entrance to the park was at 4pm which I think is a little late in the day to be handing out keys. Couple of issues with missing patio furniture and slight problem with the boiler both of which were sorted very quickly.

We first came here 7 years ago and it seems like it has not been modernised since then. The accommodation was tired, dirty in places and not good value for the price we paid. We had to queue ages to be served at the bar due to a lack of staff. WiFi is poor. Won’t be returning.

My family and I recently returned from a wonderful three day break at White Cross Bay holiday park. This immense location has it's own marina with direct access to Lake Windermere, which provides incredible views 😍 I was hugely impressed with the facilities and activities offered at White Cross Bay. All the staff here were friendly, approachable and went above and beyond to offer a big warm welcome; providing a home from home experience. A special mention to the hugely talented, Josh. He entertains children and adults, morning to evening, whilst maintaining a spring in his step. Josh does everything possible to ensure all guests, of all ages have the maximum amount of fun, making it a holiday to remember. Well done 💯
