Wow ! A real home from home comfortable lodge in a prime position just yards from Lake windermere itself. We were greeted with a bottle of prosecco and box of chocolates which was a very nice touch by John the owner. His help and communication throughout was excellent. The Lodge itself was great and so comfortable throughout. A great lounge and very comfortable Settee's a great kitchen with everything you need. The bed was the best I've slept in and the shower and bath were the icing on the cake. Our Dog loved the large area of decking and the dog friendly clubhouse too. We visited Tarn hows lake 3 times we liked it that much and Bowness. A great lodge and we hope to return in the future...Thanks John

We stay this site regularly but this was the first time we have booked privately and it is definitely the way forward. From booking to arriving at the lodge it couldn't have gone any easier. The lodge its self is just beautiful, and in the words of my 5 years old 'this is the best lodge ever'. It was so homely and comfortable and in a perfect position with a view from the lake from the main bedroom and the veranda. It was such a lovely touch being greeted with a bottle of posseco and chocolates waiting for us in the lodge. Thank you John, it was a pleasure to stay in your beautiful lodge and we cant wait to hopefully stay there again.

The accommodation exceeded our expectations by far. It was perfect for a lovely, relaxing holiday. Ideally situated close to the Lake, brilliant views from the lodge. Perfect location and facilities within White Cross Bay holiday park. Most importantly for us was the lodge itself ..... it was spacious, clean and tidy with the most comfortable beds and bedding was immaculate. Kitchen was well equipped with everything to hand. The booking process was easy as was check-in when we arrived. We will definitely be returning and would highly recommend to family and friends.

We recently returned from spending a lovely relaxing week at lake view lodge together with our 3 grandchildren and their dog. Lake view is in a wonderful position just minutes from the waters edge, just right for paddling. Also plenty of walks for the dog The amenities of the lodge are first class everything you need to make your holiday special. Plenty of space for storage and really comfy beds. Always an added bonus; and safe for children and pets. This is the 2nd consecutive year spent at lake view and hope to return in 2020. If you dont feel like exploring the area by car there is an excellent bus service near the entrance to white cross. An added bonus this year we discovered Brockholes a short distance walk away. Staff on site are very helpful and friendly. Excellent - thanks John. Jackie and Brian

Hi Jackie & Brian Thank you for your lovely review. We look forward to (hopefully) welcoming you back again in 2020. Regards John Lever

Myself and my wife stayed at this lodge for our mini-moon following our wedding day. The lodge was extremely clean and comfortable. It was full of personal touches and I formation from the family who own it. It was perfect for our dog with an enclosed decking area and perfect location in the park near the lakeside and wooded area. Helen, John and Phoebe made sure that the welcome pack was very informative and also had their personal suggestions and honesty on local prices and produce. There was also games and DVDs to keep you entertained. We will definitely be returning after a great stay and recommend it to all types of families and couples all ages. Thank you!

We enjoyed a fabulous half term break at Lake View Lodge with our 2 children and our dog. The lodge is spacious and cosy; very clean and stylish. Everything is available to ensure we had a comfortable stay; central heating is very efficient, good showers, kitchen is well equipped, lots of storage space in all rooms and plenty of bedding and towels. The lodge is situated close to the lake and we enjoyed beautiful sunrises and sunsets. We found the information folder really helpful and the chocolates and Prosecco was a lovely welcome present. We hope to book again very soon.

Hi Mel Thank you very much for your lovely review. We do try to equip the lodge with everything we like to have when we go away. Hope to welcome you back again soon. Regards John Lever

10/10 when I go away I always find something that can be improved on, but not here. This lodge has all you need and more. It's in a fantastic position, right next to the lake and not far from the main entertainment. Very safe for the dogs to go on the balcony and they loved their stay just as much as us. We love our mountain walks and was always out late in the mornings as the beds are so comfy and the lodge is so cosy and warm. Nice little touch with the wine and chocs thank you. The entertainment starts and finishes early. Food is nice and friendly staff. Had such a lovely stay here, anyone thinking of going will not be disappointed. Clean, tidy and well equipped. Great value for money. Thank you John and family x

Hi Maria Thank you very much for your lovely review. We're glad the dogs enjoyed their stay too! Hopefully we can welcome you back again sometime. Regards John Lever

On behalf of a family of 4 adults, 2 children and 2 dogs, I would like to thank you for our "holiday escape" to Lake View Lodge. This holiday home had beautiful views from the main bedroom. A woodland walk provided much needed exercise for our boxer and labrador dogs. Our 2 girls, aged 5 and 8, enjoyed scenic walks and paddles in their water proof clothing, with a choice of local walks. This lodge was homely, spacious and ideal for a large family. We had plenty of entertainment- including a choice of DVDs and family games. A wide range of books were provided in the main bedroom. Our family prepared food within the lodge, and benefitted from a dishwasher to save much valued family time! We enjoyed a relaxing and quiet holiday, for all to enjoy. We particularly enjoyed "movies under the stars" by the lake and feeding the swans (frequently waiting outside the lodge!) Upon arrival, we were greeted by a bottle of proseseco and a box of chocolates- a lovely touch to the holiday! And much needed after over two hours of driving. I would highly recommend this lodge to anyone planning a trip to the lakes. Indeed, we have already recommended Lake View Lodge to our family and friends. We cannot praise this holiday enough!

Hi Kira Thank you for taking the time to leave such a lovely review. We hope to welcome you back in the future. Regards John Lever

We had a lovely weekend. The lodge was all we wanted and more. Thank you for the wine and chocolates a lovely start! Could have stayed longer, very easily. Everything you need is there, just bring you, your clothes and toiletries. There is even a hairdryer! Very clean. Beds are so comfortable, bedding fab. Lots of room. Right by the lake, you can see it from double bedroom, lovely to wake up to. You can also see the lake from the lounge and deck area. Easy to book and check in and out. Thank you for the information folder, very helpful. There is something for everyone to do in the area. We will be back, really love the lodge and it's position is very good. Central heating and double glazed so any time would be good to visit. Penny our miniature schnauzer enjoyed her holiday as well! Thank you.

Just returned from a fantastic week at the lodge. We thoroughly enjoyed it, could easily have stayed another week! The lodge is on one of the best spots of the park, quiet but close enough to the marina and facilities.Lovely touch of wine and chocolates on arrival. The lodge had everything you could possibly need, the games came in very handy. Kids loved a game of cards and roulette every night. We look forward to returning again next year.

Spent 4 nights here over February half term with my wife, son and 2 dogs. The location of the lodge to the main club house and the lake was fantastic. The facilities and equipment provided in the lodge included everything you could need plus more! The size of the property was more than enough for our holiday but it would easily accommodate 6 guests. The owner even left some chocolates and a bottle of wine as an added little treat. I would definitely stay here again.

Booked at the very last minute and arrived to a spotlessly clean lodge with all amenities and requirements in place. We couldn't have asked for more, the location is excellent both within the park and the ease to get out and explore. A real home from home. We had a very relaxing weekend and will definitely book again in the future. Book with confidence, you would need to be very finicky to find any issues.
