About Louise Banks

I live in north of England with my husband and 2 children. We both work hard and enjoy holidaying whenever we can be it home and abroad. By owning this lodge it means we can get away at short notice and enjoy the many attractions that the beautiful Lake District has to offer.

Louise Banks purchased this cabin in 2014

Why Louise Banks chose Windermere & Central Lakes

We decided to buy this lodge on White Cross Bay as we live in the Lake District but never holiday in the area. Now with having Sunny Bank Lodge when it's not let out we can just jump in the car and be there within 20 minutes to enjoy the peace and tranquillity that the lodge has to offer as well as having the Lake District literally on the door step.

What makes this cabin unique

White Cross Bay holiday Park is nestled between Windermere and Ambleside and only 2 miles away from Windermere train station. When arriving at White Cross Bay you will be greeted by the friendly staff at reception where they will hand you the keys to Sunny Bank Lodge, give you a map of the holiday park and where the lodge is on site. When approaching the lodge you will see there is plenty of parking for upto 4 vehicles, with a large decking area with plenty of seating for those alfresco evenings. The lodge will have been fully cleaned with fresh linen and towels provided. On site there is a bar, restaurant small shop, arcade and leisure facilities which includes gym, pool, sauna, steam room and jacuzzi. (Leisure passes can be bought at reception if required at a cost of £15 for your whole party for the duration of your break).

Beautiful,well equipped and spotlessly clean!

  • 5 of 5

We have just spent 3 nights in this beautiful lodge situated on a lovely park. The lodge was clean,well equipped and spacious. The staff at the park were always pleasant and helpful. The food in the clubhouse was typical pub grub but nice pub grub at that. There was a Chinese takeaway menu in the lodge which we ordered from 1 night and it really was 1 of the best we've had.

All dealings with Louise (owner) were hassle free and she was always quick to reply. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend a stay here and certain we will book again.....only next time for a night or 2 longer!

Beautiful, modern holiday home, perfectly positioned to catch the sun all night from the spacious deck. The holiday park was lovely - well maintained with a great pool area. We loved visiting the surrounding towns of Ambleside, Grassmere, Keswick and Windermere - such beautiful parts of the country - we would all love to return

My partner and I booked this Lodge after seeing the pictures on the website and reading previous reviews, they wasn't wrong, very comfortable and clean, excellent location to see family over the xmas period, plenty of room for my son and daughter to visit, had a great relaxing break additional extras with tree and decorations made it very homely, shame about the rain!

Would definitely recommend to others and visit again. Thankyou Louise
