The best holiday I had in years

We stayed in crummock lodge for the weekend. We were blown away by the lodge it had absolutely everything you could possibly need and two minute walk from the Centre.

We enjoyed a trip to lake Windermere and went on a cruise £23 for a family of 4 and brick hole is a ten minute walk down the road. Definitely have a look online if you’re planning to visit could spend the full day there.

The kids loved the swimming everyday and we enjoyed the sauna and steam room. The lifeguards were friendly and not over zealous like you sometimes get on other resorts.

From the second we checked in till leaving we were made to feel very welcome and will definitely return.

We have visited White Cross bay over a period of 8 years and have enjoyed it very much.
We were unlucky with our accommodation, which did not justify its price tag but we had another good holiday this year.
The staff were great as usual and the location remains unbeatable in terms of access to the lake itself and the surrounding areas.
It is a great family location but do not bank on being able to use the pool facilities in high season.
