I stayed at Eskpike on Whitecross Bay in April with my Partner and our little dog.
It was fabulous.. clean and fresh and so quaint and cosy and very romantic with its private hot tub tucked away. Did not want to leave and can not wait to return in the Autumn.
Tip.. take fluffy dressing gowns for the hot tub and a bottle of champagne!

The reason I have given this 3 out of 5 is simply because the cabin was not up the standards of cleanliness i would expect from such an expensive weekend away. There was a baking tray that was entirely covered in meat juice and fat, and as I am vegan I was mortified by this. How could such a basic thing be overlooked? Was it even cleaned at all or was there just new bed linen, if that, put in place? Considering they have you check out by 10am yet check in from 3pm, you'd assume that 5 hours cleaning time would be more than enough to make sure it is done thoroughly. Also, as we were getting ready to leave for the 10am deadline (more like 9am as the clocks went forward!) there was already somebody putting something to clean it in the hot tub by 9am. What if we were in it, making the most out of this brilliant feature? I just found that ridiculous. If I have paid to stay somewhere until 10am, I expect to be able to use everything I have paid for until then!
The hot tub was a brilliant feature and so hidden away! The location was also amazing, as it stood on top of a hill and there were views for miles. There was also a garden swing which was in a lovely location to catch the sunset. The fireplace was also really lovely, very nice to come back into a lovely hot cabin after getting out of the boiling hot tub into the cold air. All in all it was a wonderful stay, the bed was comfy enough albeit a little dented in the middle. The shower was extremely small but manageable. The hot water never really got very hot which was a shame.
I thoroughly enjoyed three nights here with my partner for his 21st and also for a wedding. It is in a brilliant location right beside the lake. The only downside is the cleaning not being up to scratch.
