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 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 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).

Owner's Response: Hi Paula Thank you for taking the time to write your review and thank you for your kind words. Re the DVD players I do apologise for this and thank you for brining it to my attention as I will look into this and make sure this gets sorted. Re the wifi, as park is now at peak season it is a little slower than normal and unfortunately out of my control. Best wishes Louise

I visit the lakes every year and usually stay at hotels and guest houses however my experience at the lodge has changed how I will spend my future trips at the lakes! Cosy inside and nice and quiet where it is situated however not too far to walk to the reception/bar area and the to the lake front! Would definitely recommend this to anybody :)

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!
