This was our first holiday to the lake district and Whitecross Bay is an ideal location to be in and explore from. The park and accommodation were lovely and the staff friendly with a variety of activities on offer (although we did not partake in a number of them). The only criticism I have is that when told at reception about having to book a slot in the swimming pool that they emphasis the need to book in advance for the days you may wish to use the pool as it does get very busy and you may not get a slot at all if you don't.

As it was out of season we were out and about during the day and used the facilities for meals and the entertainment when it was on suitable for our age group.

Excellent holiday park in a fantastic location. Clean accommodation and great for children. We were offsite during the days but fully enjoyed the facilities on offer in the evenings.
