About Roger & Hazel

We live in Poulton-le-Fylde, a small market town on the outskirts of Blackpool. We love to go walking in the Lake District and our lodge is both a home-from-home and an "away from it all" retreat where we can relax and unwind and enjoy the tranquility and beautiful scenery that surrounds us. Unfortunately, due to work and other commitments, we aren't able to visit as much as we would like so have decided to let the lodge out and so we hope you enjoy staying there as much as we always do.

Roger & Hazel purchased this cabin in 2011

Why Roger & Hazel chose Windermere

Very comfortable, well equipped lodge, suitable for families, couples and friends.

What makes this cabin unique

White Cross Bay is in an excellent location for exploring the Lake District. The lodge itself is in a very pleasant, quiet area of the White Cross Bay park but within a few minutes walking distance of the main reception/bar/restaurant/swimming pool complex and children's outdoor play areas.

A lovely clean, comfortable and well equipped lodge.

  • 5 of 5

White Cross Bay is a great place for people who want to enjoy the beauty and attractions around Lake Windermere. Brockholes has something for all ages - a lovely walk, somewhere to sit and enjoy the scenery, plenty of fun and water activities. Hill Top for Beatrix Potter and Grasmere for Wordsworth all easy to get to by bus and boat.

It was made even better by having a lovely lodge to look forward to coming back to relax after a good day out. It`s the second time I have stayed there, and I would certainly go again.
