Reviews from the Hoseasons website

White Cross Bay Leisure Park is ideal for families, couples old and young or singles. The accommodation, on site facilities and amenities are up to date and can be enjoyed by young and old. The Park is conveniently situated between Windermere and Ambleside and is value for money, has a well maintained Park with a relaxed atmosphere. These are just a few of the reasons why we keep going back for that well deserved break at White Cross Bay Leisure Park
A great location from which to explore the Lake District, a peaceful site with well kept and clean facilities. We would come again without hesitation
>Had a fabulous time, the on-site facilities were great, we booked to have a chilled relaxing time and not stressing about finding places to eat or driving too far out for essentials, everything was provided for and more. Staff were great, very helium and cheery, definitely recommend to others, we are currently expecting our first child and have already said that we will bring our little one here again for a holiday, so see you soon! :)
