Lakeside Lounging at White Cross Bay

A Lake District getaway for the active and not-so-active

Published on August 1st 2013.


Lakeside Lounging at White Cross Bay
 

SOME people like climbing mountains. Others prefer to admire them from somewhere warm, dry and cosy. The people at White Cross Bay understand this well. 

The lodges are nicely spaced in a peaceful, woodland setting with great views of the fell

Their four-star holiday park on the shores of Lake Windermere is designed for active types and those whose sense of adventure stretches as far as the sauna and indoor pool. It's the Lake District, with all its adrenalin activities and outdoor sports, but with relaxation built in.

Img_6916Accommodation is spacious caravans and lovely wooden lodges so you have all your creature comforts on hand (including free wi-fi). They sleep from four to six people, making them ideal for getaways with friends, romantic breaks, and family holidays. You'll find them nicely spaced in a peaceful, woodland setting with great views of the fells.

On site, there are extensive facilities for those who don't like to stray too far from their kettle and sofa. There's an indoor swimming pool with a sauna and gym, plus a restaurant and bar for those nights when you don't feel like cooking. Families will appreciate the children's play area, the games area (football, tennis, basketball) and the family lounge bar.

White Cross Bay is right in the heart of the Lake District so you're within easy driving distance of Ambleside, the Beatrix Potter House, and the Wordsworth Museum. You can take a cruise on Lake Windermere, visit the Lakeside Aquarium, or simply go for a stroll along the shore.

Those who prefer a more active break are spoilt for choice around here. White Cross Bay has its own marina and boat launch facilities, and just a short walk down the road is Low Wood Bay Watersports where you can hire a kayak or try wake boarding. Grizedale Forest is also nearby with its Go Ape ropes course and mountain bike trails.

Img_7090And of course, there's the fells themselves. This is one of Europe's most famous walking areas and White Cross Bay is a great place to stay if you want to explore it. Accommodation here costs less than most B&Bs, and gives you a much easier time than camping.

This September, White Cross Bay is offering some great deals on short breaks with accommodation starting at £269 per caravan (sleeps four) for three or four nights.
