The property

Bosun’s is a delightful lodge on White Cross Bay and just a short walk from the marina and lake where you can enjoy watching the boats bobbing around, or perhaps the sunset over the fells.

A spacious lodge sleeping four people and room for infant in travel cot if needed, complete with gated, private decking and a bubbling hot tub.

What a lovely spot to completely relax and unwind after a day exploring the Lakes.

Indoors you have a stylish open plan living and kitchen area, so you can all be together, planning the day ahead or reflecting on your adventures.

With two bedrooms and two bathrooms there's plenty of space for everyone.

In a glorious setting by the lake, White Cross Bay sits on the shores of Lake Windermere with views all around to the spectacular fells.

Bosun's lodge is a short walk from the waterside where you can head down to the jetties, breathe in the fresh air, enjoy the views and watch the boats on the marina.

On the Park itself, there is a bar and restaurant with outdoor seating area, picnic area and children’ play zone.

Note: Some facilities on the park are subject to extra cost such as use of the pool, gym, entertainment, bar and restaurant.

500 yards up the main A591 is Brockhole Lake District Visitor Centre, with a great way to spend a day with gardens, house, café, restaurant, walks, boats, adventure playground and Tree Top Trek: there’s lots to do!

You’re also just two miles from bustling Windermere village with shops, cafes and pubs, and three miles from Bowness boat landings, where the elegant cruisers come in and you can hop on a boat trip.

Bowness is a cosmopolitan village with award-winning restaurants and pubs and quirky shops, a cinema and the ever- popular World of Beatrix Potter attraction.

Three miles in the other direction, head to Ambleside, another bustling town with shops, cafes, pubs and restaurants and of course, fabulous walks in every direction.

Two miles north on the A592 is the pretty village of Troutbeck, home to two traditional pubs with log fires, great food and ales: The Queens Head and the Mortal Man.

You’ll also discover beautiful Holehird Gardens, and the National Trust’s fascinating Townend House.

Further on you climb up to the magnificent Kirkstone Pass, then drop down to Brotherswater & Ullswater.

A wonderful spot to make fabulous memories with your loved ones.

You will be staying on an operational holiday park, which means work may be undertaken from time to time by the park owners during your stay.

All hot tubs are maintained to strict industry standards and HSE guidelines by separate qualified independent contractors on behalf of the property owners. This includes changing the water between guest stays and checking the water condition on a regular basis.

Whilst every effort is made to have a hot tub ready for immediate use by the arrival time stated, this may not always be possible. In such cases the hot tub will usually be ready to use later that day unless otherwise advised. In such cases no compensation or refund is payable unless the hot tub is faulty.
