Lovely accomodation on a good site

We found our accomodation to be exactly as describe and was not disappointed. The village itself is off the beaten track but to be honest we don't like being in the busy parts. Most places to visit are in easy reach by car. The pool facilities were complimentary and was very pleasant. We was slightly disappointed to have to pay for the laundry cleaning of a bedsheet which one of our toddlers had an accident on and found a discrepency with the staffs cost to the price within the welcome pack. Otherwise we found the staff helpful and kind.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
Enjoyable relaxing holiday

Whitbarrow Village was a lovely relaxing place to stay, the cottage was very nice as well and well equipped for all your needs for self catering. The one down side was that there wasn't a little shop on site to buy a newspaper or a few grocery goods. Would definitely go back.
Nice accomodation, nice resort

Apartment was clean spacious and well equiped. Resort was good, although swimming pool is small for size of resport.
A great family holiday for old and young.

Our 'villa' set the in the pleasant and well maintained 'village' met all requirements - especially the effective central heating needed with the weather being so cold.
The kids enjoy the games and entertainment facilities. The decent size and warm pool kept them busy while we relaxed.
All staff - entertainment and reception were excellent. Cleaning staff were also very helpful when we had a problem.

Thank you for offering us the opportunity to review the above cottage on your review site. However, we did send the owners an email communication 3 days ago expressing our concerns about our stay and still await their reply
We would prefer to speak to them privately about these concerns and feel that perhaps this would be what they would prefer also rather than have our concerns listed here Read more

Super cottage, great resort
Left on 10/02/2012 for a stay in August 2012 | Fitzgerald
We had a super time at Whitbarrow the lodges are great and the resort has everything you need.
Parking and no food shop on site
Left on 06/14/2012 for a stay in June 2012 | wmdshn
Accomadation was good although our shower (in the ensuite) was broken on the second day of our week's stay and could not be fixed by a very perservering engineer and we did get a free meal for 4 (~100GBP) at the restaurant as compensation for this.
Other problems -Parking was a major problem and as it was peak time the place was full but not enough parking space for the full capacity. The other problem was no onsite/grocery shop for a self catering site which is at least 7 miles from a supermarket or a grocery store.
Very Enjoyable Family Stay

We had a 3 Bed Cottage, well laid out. Sleeping on ground floor and Lounge and Dining on First Floor. We used the Leisure Facilities and Bar. It was a great location to get to the Lakes and Hiking. We had a wonderful time!

Well eqipped cottage, a bit difficult for mobility challenged Had to buy a frying pan because the one suppied is virtually useless. the electrical sockets in twin room virtually inaccessable because of the beds.
