White Cross Bay Leisure Park is located alongside Lake Windermere itself, about two miles north of the town. The park is described, quite justifably, as: "the most idyllic and scenic holiday location in the heart of the Lake District"

This is looking straight across the lake to the 'Old Man of Coniston' and 'Weatherlam' range.
'Crinkle Craggs' and 'Bowfell'are to the right - bordering onto the Langdales.
There is a private marina for boat owners and watersports.

The newly built multisports area is, unsurprisingly, well used:
Tennis, Football, Basketball and - well - not quite sure what else!!

Multisports area


There is an extensive woodland area inhabited by deer - but also available for guests to explore and enjoy...and for dog walking.
It's covered with Bluebells during May, when it is arguably at its most beautiful

Queen Adelaide Hill (about one mile from White Cross Bay)
Here is a view from the top looking towards the Langdales (Harrison Stickle, Pike of Stickle etc.) and beyond to Scafell and the central fells. Parking is close by, at a layby on the road to Bowness.

Stock Ghyll Force
A 10 - 15 minute walk from Ambleside (along well kept paths) will take you to Stock Ghyll Force Waterfall.
It's not always quite so full, but always impressive!

Loughrigg Fell (looking North over Grasmere)
Loughrigg Fell is easy to reach from Ambleside. And you don't even need to get to the top as there are some wonderful views from the South looking back over Lake Windermere towards White Cross Bay.
It's a great fell to explore for beginners and hardened walkers alike!!

Each year, over half of our bookings come from guests who have previously stayed at the pine cabin; some of them come every year. Our guests' satisfaction is reflected on the Stickle Tarn Lodge Google+ page. (Whenever possible, we offer a discount on repeat bookings.)
