Third time at White Cross Bay and definitely Third Time Lucky

5 of 5
Just had a wonderful weekend at Stickle Tarn Lodge with two teenage granddaughters. The Lodge is in a great position close to the pool and bar/restaurant and play area. The outside decking area is a great sun trap. We were lucky enough to be there during the recent heatwave. Having taken a little portable bbq (use only on the gravel not the decking or grass) with us we were able to enjoy a very relaxed bbq evening sat out in the evening sunshine. The Lodge is well equipped with quality goods and very comfortable, the welcome packs of basics and chocolates on the bed were a really nice touch, thank you John and a Jeanne. Your Lodge is the best we have stayed at on White Cross Bay and we hope to be back minus the grandchildren. Lovely Lodge, great weather, excellent hosts, what more could you ask for. Thank you both 👍👏
