Striding Edge description

Holiday home
Striding Edge is a Scandinavian style lodge, situated on White Cross Bay Park on the shores of Lake Windermere. The lodge is all ground floor and sleeps six people in three bedrooms - one double, one room with adult bunks and one twin with 2'6" beds. There is a bathroom with bath, shower over, basin and WC. The open plan living area has a fitted kitchen, dining area and sitting area with gas fire and patio door to the outdoor decked terrace with furniture. Off road parking is available for two cars. With use of on-site facilities, lovely lakeside walks to enjoy, not to mention watersports and boat trips on the lake itself, and with a wealth of towns and villages to explore nearby, Striding Edge makes a great base for a lakeside family break in the Lake District.

Bowness and Windermere are two towns very close to each other in the Lake District, and offer amenities such as shops, pubs and restaurants. Take a boat trip out on Lake Windermere, perhaps stopping off at Ambleside or visit the Lakeside Aquarium. Enjoy scenic walks, watersports, the World Of Beatrix Potter, 'Go Ape' adventure park or several National Trust properties. Within easy reach are Grasmere, Kendal and Keswick.

Impressive mountains, open fells and clear-water lakes, the Lake District has it all. From walking in the mountains to exhilarating watersports or just a gentle cruise on a steam-powered yacht, Cumbria is the perfect holiday destination.

The lodge felt like a home from home. There was everything there that we needed and more (though a family argument did ensue when we attempted to play Pictionary!). The lodge was privately situated with decking that would have formed an excellent sun trap had we had a bit more sun. We would highly recommend to others.

We had a fantastic stay at Striding Edge. It was relaxing and had all the conveniences needed for a cottage holiday. The owners were very accommodating and provided a travel cot as needed for our 4 month old. The actual site facilities were great for families.

Striding Edge was homely and welcoming and in an ideal location to explore the Lake District.

The lodge was so warm and welcoming. We all felt at home straight away. Great size for us all to feel comfortable. Would definitely recommend to friends and family.

The lodge was absolutely perfect. It had everything we needed as a family with young children. Striding Edge had plenty of equipment, enough to make anything; we even baked a cake! The games and books for children were also a lovely touch; it made us feel that our children were welcome and could relax as much as us.

The place was lovely. The lodge was very well equipped, it had everything we needed and in a good location also, not too far from Ambleside/Windermere. We couldn't fault it, it was like a home-from-home!

The accommodation was like home-from-home which is what we needed with a 14 month old baby with us. There were excellent facilities on the holiday site providing good food and drink. The swimming pool and play area is also great for keeping kids entertained!

I would not hesitate in telling my friends and family about this great family based location in the Lakes. Plenty to see and do, great fun for all at the leisure complex. Fantastic warm helpful staff, full of knowledge and helpful tips to ease your holiday.

We loved the peaceful setting, looking out over the trees. Staff on site were so helpful and friendly. Location was perfect for travelling. Would go again.

Just back from an amazing week away in this cottage and had the best time. Ideally situated to explore the Lake District with lots to do on site also such as a swimming pool, games area, play parks, forest and lake areas and a bar. The cottage was very cosy, warm, welcoming and well equipped with lots of lovely personal touches like toys and games, children's drawing stuff and low lighting. Loved it, well equipped kitchen and rooms, cosy beds and couches. We had 2 dogs with us who also loved it immediately. I can't wait to go again. Had to contact owner by email and they could not have been nicer or more helpful. I would absolutely recommend this cottage for a fantastic family holiday

We had a lovely stay in this clean and cosy cottage. Liked the location, very central for southern lakes

We stayed at Striding Edge for a week in September. The lodge was perfect, it was well maintained in a lovely, peaceful location. Previously we have found that some self catering accommodation has the bare minimum when it comes to kitchen equipment, this wasn't the case with Striding Edge, the kitchen had everything you could need for a perfect self catering stay, this is especially important with a toddler and baby in tow. The lodge was spacious with good sized rooms. The extra little touches like games, colouring and books meant that our daughter always had something to do. The location was great as a base for exploring the Lake District but with a decent swimming pool, gym and park we weren't short of things to do if we stayed 'home' for the day. All in all we would highly recommend this lodge and hopefully will be visiting again soon.

The staff were friendly and helpful from the very start. We loved our log cabin, which was very spacious and had a lovely view from the porch. Bird feeders attracted a wonderful assortment of birds, to watch as we sat outside. We had our puppy, Lucille, with us and the balcony was great for her. There were other dog lovers there, which was fun. We used the pool, the takeaway, the shop and the bar: all good. Too wet to use the tennis or football outdoor facilities, but good to know they were there. It was a good place to explore The Lakes from and we travelled each day. Saw a fabulous production of "Great Expectations" at the Theatre on the Lake in Keswick. Explored the visitors' centre at Brokole, which is almost next door and had many things to do.

The lodge we booked was ideal for our purposes, it was in a great location and well maintained. White Cross Bay is a good venue with lots of facilities.

The location was fantastic and the lodge was the best equipped property I have ever stayed in. The owner has thought of everything! Its a real home from home.
