The lodge enjoys what several guests have commented on as being the best location in the park.
About 5-10 mins walk from the lake shore, it has its own distinct plot with a garden and grass bank
leading down to the dry stone wall. With woodland rising up behind it, there is a distinct sense of
seclusion; and yet the front aspect opens up to an uninterrupted view over the park.
Bird song is all around. Some guests have seen deer close by.

amazing new Treetop Aerial Course (with 250m triple zip wire), 'predator park', adventure playground, historic garden walks by the lake, and just about
everything for the whole family!

- Fast-food Outlet
- Games Arcade
- outdoor multi-sports court (adjacent to building)
[PLEASE NOTE: A one-off fee of £15.00 is payable to White Cross Bay reception to purchase a
leisure pass – if required. This allows entry to the swimming pool/gym facilities for the whole
party throughout the duration of your visit]
In recent years, White Cross Bay has introduced a dedicated entertainments team which caters
to all ages and tastes. An arrival, you will be given a schedule of the daily events
(note: some of these are charged as extras, such as certain popular pool activities
for the family: e.g. water walkers and aqua jets).
There is also a supervised play area where children can be looked after safely.

to enjoy quieter types of entertainment. There is, for example, an extensive woodland
area in the park - inhabited by deer - which is accessible for guests to explore and enjoy, or for
The woodland walks are very nearly within a stone’s throw distance from the lodge.
