When it comes to picking a hotel in the glorious Lake District you’re spoilt for choice. What that means is that hotels have to work harder to find a way of standing out from the crowd.

White Cross Bay Holiday Park – Lake District

People say that first impressions can be misleading and, yes, that can sometimes be the case. But in my experience, they’re generally an accurate sign of what one can expect when it comes to choosing a hotel, B&B, apartment or, in this case, holiday park.
