We stayed at Dovedale in May 2024 for a weekend while my husband did the Fred Whitton Race. It was our second stay and did not disappoint.We stayed here back in August 2023 and could not fault the lodge. Great spot close to the lake. Spotlessly clean. Lovely welcome pack for grown ups and children. Comfy clean beds. TVs and WiFi great when we wanted to chill out. The lodge is very homely and had everything we needed.We have been coming to White Cross Bay every year since 2016 and this is our favourite lodge.Chris and Fiona were so helpful and friendly when booking this lodge. We hired a paddleboard and they sorted out a little problem straightaway.We got to meet the owner as they were passing by, lovely lady.The hot tub was amazing, which was checked regularly by an outside company.The only negative is our lake view from the decking was restricted by 2 other lodges that Park Dean resorts had put in communal car parking spaces restricting our view. This sadly is not the owners fault.On both trips we all didn't want to go home.We will definitely return. Thank you.

Thank you for the excellent review and ratings, Heather. We are so pleased to hear you had another fabulous stay at Dovedale Lodge. We agree, it is such a lovely lodge and the hot tub just tops it off. We were sorry to hear you had a restricted view of the lake, although as you rightly point out, the owners or us as booking agents, have no control over how the site is run. It is our understanding that the lodges have now been permanently sited elsewhere and removed from the car park. A very well done to your husband on completing the Fred Whitton challenge, a great achievement - and Dovedale is the perfect place to relax after the event. Thank you again, and we look forward to you returning for another stay very soon.

Me and my partner had a 4 night stay in the Dovedale lodge. I have stayed on white cross bay a few times in the past with family, but it was my partners first time here. To say he loved it was an understatement! The lodge was filled with Autumn/Halloween decorations which was such an amazing Surprise! It was so clean and in a perfect location, so close to the lake too! Will 100% be staying here again.

Thank you for the excellent review and ratings, Katie. We are so pleased to hear that you and your partner had an enjoyable stay. Dovedale really is a wonderful holiday lodge, immaculately presented and spacious to accommodate up to five guests, with the added bonus of a fabulous hot tub and all in a great location on the park! A superb choice and perfect for your partner for a first time to White Cross Bay. Thank you for your kind words and we look forward to welcoming you both again soon.

We have stayed at White Cross bay for many years now, we thought we would try a different lodge this year. We were not disappointed with Dovedale, it was immaculate, spacious and provided everything that we required. The hot tub was a fantastic addition, the outdoor seating area was clean with lovely modern furniture and a partial view of the lake.On arrival we were greeted with a bottle of Prosecco and sweets for my children, a lovely touch!A washing machine would have been a handy added extra, this is absolutely not a complaint and this would definitely not put us off booking this lodge in the future.I have high standards when it comes to accommodation, this lodge definitely met my expectations, thank you for a wonderful stay!

We are thrilled to hear you had a wondaful stay, Emma and thank you kindly for the excellent review. Dovedale is a fabulous lodge, beautifully equipped and with super attention to detail. We note your suggestion for a washing machine and although there are laundry facilities onsite for guests convenience, we will of course advise the owners of your comments for future consideration. Thank you for these and for recommending the lodge to others! We hope to welcome you again in the near future.
