About the Owner

Myself and my partner Anthony live in Preston with our 2 yorkies Freddie and Barney, we still both work full time, so unfortunately don,t get to spend as much time at the lodges as we would like, we can,t wait to retire then we can spend more time in the Lakes.

Fabulous lodge

  • 5 of 5

A fabulous spacious lodge beautifully decorated and furnished situated a short stroll from the lake. Kitchen is extensively equipped, Kim has thought of everything including extras such as tea, coffee, salt, pepper, kitchen roll, etc. Plenty of storage throughout the lodge and everything provided including lovely towels (not for pool use). Beautiful modern bathrooms, lovely cosy and comfortable lounge, Sky TV, it really is a delight. The decking is large and enclosed which was perfect and safe for our dogs. Negatives, wifi is weak but that applies to the whole of Whitecross Bay but it is also free. We were surprised how far it is from Windermere, about a 45 minute walk but location is central for accessing both Windermere and Ambleside. We totally relaxed and we were sad to leave. It felt like home, it exceeded our expectations and we will definitely return. We had a fabulous time.

SIMPLY WONDERFUL!

  • 5 of 5

Our second stay at Happy Days. Felt at home as soon as we unpacked. Lodge as clean and well maintained as our first visit the year before. The lodge is the perfect base from which to explore the Lake District; a home from home, and centrally located between Windermere and Ambleside. A visit to Brockhole for Tree Top Trek, the adventure playground and walks at Whinlatter, an adventure on Lake Windermere and a visit to Wray Castle are a must for families. Highly recommended.

Location

From the Owner

We had 3 fab holidays at White Cross Bay, before we took the plunge and bought Lazy Days Lodge. We looked at quite a few but as soon as we walked into Lazy Days we knew this was the one.....its so bright and airy with a full wall of glass, and the fact it had the stream in front of it and the ducks were swimming away in front of the decking , we just fell in love with it and bought it the same day. 2years later Happy Days came up for sale.......this was different it was a project! The lodge was in a bit of a state but we saw the potential......so over the closed season we gutted it, and did a complete refurb, and the result is stunning. Happy Days is now a bright contempary style lodge lodge, very comfortable and everyone that stays loves it.

Facilities

From the Owner

Both lodges benefit from being very large, ideal for families or 2 couples. The decking areas on them both are some of the largest to be found on White Cross Bay, and we have quality outdoor furniture on them both. It is only a 3 minute walk to the lake from either lodge and a similar time to walk to reception and the leisure facilities. Whichever oidge you choose.....we guarantee you won,t be disappointed......some guests have stayed in both.....but can,t decide which they prefer!
