About White Cross Bay Holiday Park and The Lake District

White Cross Bay Holiday Park

Situated right in the heart of the Lake District, White Cross Bay Holiday Park enjoys over 60 acres of delightful wooded parkland running down to the shores of Windermere lake. A 5-star, beautifully maintained holiday park holding the David Bellamy Gold Award for Conservation. The panorama of the lake, surrounding fells and countryside is quite simply breathtaking.

On site there is a heated indoor swimming pool, sauna and fitness suite (payable locally), a relaxing bar and a fully licensed restaurant. A takeaway service is also available if you prefer to eat in the comfort of your own Lodge. Laundry facilities and a well stocked shop and off license complete the indoor amenities. Live entertainment is performed in the bar on site most weekends during the peak the season.

Outdoor there is children's play area and a multi use games area consisting of a combined tennis court, 5 a side football pitch and a basketball court. For quieter pursuits on site you can find a picnic area nestling alongside the lake, a dog walking area set in the woodland area, and last, but by no means least, a charming beer garden.

Sailing and water sports enthusiasts can enjoy the marina at White Cross Bay which offers one of the best boat launching facilities on Lake Windermere. A stream gently flows its way through the park encouraging ducks and other wildlife. Within 10 minutes walking distance is the Lake District Visitor Centre at Brockhole and a little further on is the Low Wood Water Sports centre.

The Lake District

"The Lake District... Britain's favourite great escape"
Rory McGrath - ITVs 'The Lakes'

Here is the epitome of all that is England. Lush green beauty, placid lakes, the rugged grandeur of the mountains, ancient towns, quaint villages and a constantly changing scene - in fact, so wide a variety that you must ponder on the miracle that confined all this into so small a space.

The area of the Lake District National Park is 40 miles across at its widest part, yet within its compass are nearly 200 mountains of about 2,000 feet and many of nearly 3,000 feet, with 4 even higher still. There are some 500 lakes and tarns, historical and heritage sites, rivers, waterfalls and mountain passes.

Windermere lake which is 10.5 miles long (an area of 5.69 square miles) is England's largest lake and Scafell Pike (at 3,206 feet) the highest mountain. Contained in the Lakeland area is Britain's largest National Park. Here indeed is a walkers and cyclists paradise, for nowhere else on our shores is there such complete freedom of access. There are many towns and villages to explore, whether nestled in valleys, on the side of a lake or along the coastline.

Here in the Lake District there is something for everyone, the walker, cyclist, sailor, fisherman, nature lover, historian, and all lovers of beauty. Its charm is inescapable, and not far from any main road is that pearl of great price so rare in the 21st century - peace!
