About Anna Hughes and Remo Ricciardi

Remo and myself live in the Isle of Man with our 2 dogs, we have been visiting the Lakes for the last few years and have enjoyed staying at White Cross Bay, we love just chilling out in the lodge and getting out for lovely walks and eating in the dog friendly pubs.

Anna Hughes and Remo Ricciardi purchased this cabin in 2015

Why Anna Hughes and Remo Ricciardi chose Windermere

We chose this property as we love the location it is in at White Cross Bay, Acorn lodge has an sunny elevated decking area and near the lake and have the woods behind which means we get a bit of everything.

What makes this cabin unique

The position of the property is set with woodland behind and from the terrace there are views of the fells around the lake with sunshine all day, the property is set less than 100metres from the lake.

Exactly as described - lovely!

  • 5 of 5

It’s very rare nowadays that you get what you pay for. I think this home was lovely, exactly as I thought it would be. Well looked after, with little luxuries on the way. Great location and lovely area and people surrounding the lodge. I will 100% rebook with this couple and their lodge. The only improvement I would make is a really deep clean is needed from time to time and skirting boards and door frame and begins beds and side tables it was full of dust and given i suffer from asthma that was the only issue, but can easily be put right.

Highly recommend and can’t wait to go back!

Thank you both

Lovely lodge great location

  • 4 of 5

A very nice lodge nicely fitted out with lots of little extras to welcome us on arrival. Woods behind and lake side a 2 minute walk away. A good location for walking the dog. The site was very well looked after and it is in a nice location on Windermere between Bowness and Ableside. The weather was glorious for the whole time which always helps. Would recommend the site and the lodge.

Lovely Acorn lodge!

  • 5 of 5

A lovely lodge on the shores of Lake Windermere. Just a short stroll to the marina. Very clean with everything we needed for our stay. The bed was comfortable and the bedding immaculate. Will definitely be returning!

Fantastic stay in a beautiful, modern lodge

  • 5 of 5

From my first enquiries to booking the owner Anna was very quick in responding and also very informative. Any questions I asked via email were dealt with swiftly and in a friendly manner. So brilliant communication!

We stayed for the bank holiday weekend in Acorn Lodge, Pony Meadow at White Cross Bay. The location of the lodge is perfect situated right next to a forest and very close to Lake Windermere in a quiet location.

The lodge is very attractive from the outside and when we went inside we were more than impressed. It is very well kept, spacious and modern. The little added extras were a great touch. The tea, coffee, sugar, biscuits, and toiletries was a special treat so thanks for that!

The lodge has two bedrooms and two bathrooms with a modern open plan kitchen come dining and living room. There is also wifi available. The beds are extremely comfortable and there is plenty of storage. There is an iron, ironing board and hairdryer provided.

We all loved our stay here and will be returning as soon as we can. It really is five star accommodation.

Thanks for sharing your wonderful lodge with us Anna.

Superb

  • 5 of 5

The accommodation was absolutely superb. Very clean and a very short walk to the Lake and woods. Could have stated much more. Handily place for days out being central to the main attractions. Plan to return
