We’ve had a fantastic, relaxing holiday at white cross bay. The location is beautiful. The lodge we stayed in was really lovely, llangorse lodge, its got a large gated decking area so was perfect for the dogs. Inside the lodge was very homely, had everything we needed.
Theirs plenty to do in the surrounding areas, we had a boat trip to lakeside which was lovely. Visited the motor museum, it was a combined offer £16 for both boat trip & museum.
Visited Beatrice potters house which is in a quaint little village, had a pint of local ale in the village pub, very tasty!
We would definitely there again.

Great site close to Windermere. Would be good if there was water sports/boats for hire direct on site.

Unfortunatelly we won't return. The lodge was not nice and the site was not too impresive. The location is great, the lake beautiful and lots to do but outside of the resort.
