Parking is easy. I was impressed with the pool lifeguards. They were friendly and flexible. Played with the kids and happy to help. The...

The site itself was pleasant to walk around with a beautiful picnic area by the bay. We tried the club house one night but found the drinks expensive and the bingo...

Recently stayed at White Cross Bay in Damson Lodge Thirmele 8. Was a great experience the lodges were fantastic. The park is ok, difficult at first to find the lodges and is at least a good 30 mins walking to the nearest attraction. The boathouse was very small and difficult for us to find a table for 7. The reception...

Situated on the shores of Lake Windermere in one of the most idyllic and scenic locations in the very heart of the Lake District. White Cross Bay is set within picturesque woodland, and with red deer and rabbits as local residents, a break here is sure to take you back to nature. There’s something for everyone, whether you’re looking for a quiet break or active escape. Enjoy the indoor pool, gym, spa pool, sauna and steam room to feel totally rejuvenated. For the more adventurous there’s an abundance of local walking tracks with stunning views of the Lake District or try the Treetop trek in Brockhole National Park. White Cross Bay is located between Ambleside and Windermere so there is a wide variety of pubs, cafes, restaurants. Popular eateries in the local area are Pedros, The Flying Pig, The Drunken Duck, The Albert, Zefferellis and The Wild Boar that has a very special reputation locally and nationally for its quality of food and drink experience and White Cross Bay even have their own marina on Lake Windermere with boat launching facilities – a walk along the boardwalk to see the boats and ducks is a must! The perfect way to finish your day is with a homemade meal and drink in the restaurant and bar on site.
