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 either abroad or in this country. Now with having the 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 England

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 3/4 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 up to 7 nights for your whole party for the duration of your break).

A welcoming, comfortable and cosy home

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week in Windemere - Sunny Bank Lodge's location is perfect for exploring the Lake District; infact, we did so much exploring we barely spent any time at the Park. However, the lodge was extremely clean and provided a home from home environment. Opening the windows onto the decking and the general peace and quiet was a treat. The kids enjoyed using the enclosed football/basketball pitch whilst we sat and had an evening drink outside by the en-site bar. Annoyingly you are required to pre-book a pool slot so we never actually used the facility as we didn't want to be restricted to timescales whilst on holiday. The one time we did book, the sun was shining and we were on top of a mountain and failed to make our booking.

I managed to leave my beloved jewellery bag at this property, however the owner very kindly posted home to me. Certainly a kind service. Next time, we would consider taking our bikes as the Village is a cycle-able distance from Ambleside and Bowness. One of our best holidays yet!
