White Cross Bay – Lake Windermere, Cumbria
This 60 acre pile was recently awarded a David Bellamy prize for being exceptionally kind to nature. White Cross Bay is ranged along the dreamy banks of Lake Windermere and affords so many great views and activities that you’ll be beside yourself. Nestled amid the glorious fells, the admixture of lodges and caravans for rental hire have all the essentials anyone needs: modern showers, kitchen areas, WCs, central heating, adequate sleeping berths for 4-6 guests.
All the views of the lake are splendid and you need only pop out your front door to begin your explorations of the stunning scenery, albeit carved up by steep areas that might make life difficult for wheelchair users and other patrons with mobility problems.
On the picturesque premises you can get up to all sorts of lovely fun and games. The kiddies’ play zone, gym and pool tables complement the great outdoors-style fun you can have too. Those wishing to kick back and be pampered will be more than happy with the sauna, clubhouse bar-restaurant and variegated amusements. These facilities are conveniently available for the entire year so you don’t need to worry about any of them being closed for the duration of your personal White Cross Bay booking.
The fells that range around the lodge park must be seen to be believed. When they develop into wider lakes like Windermere, Ambleside and Bowness, then you can go fishing (although you will need to produce a licence). Alternatively, hiking, climbing and gentle strolling are all perfectly worthy pursuits in this undeniably special part of Cumbria.
Whether you want to lie back in your own private hot tub, go fishing for hours on end until you can catch that prize carp or pump iron in the state of the art gymnasium, there’s no question that any kind of tourist of any kind of stripe will be more than satisfied – delighted in fact – with all that White Cross Bay has to offer. The evidence? So many are and so many come back!
