A lovely lodge

We had a lovely week in Bosun's Lodge. It is a good size for 4 people, very clean and well equipped. It's in a nice quiet location on White Cross Bay (which is a really nice park). The hot tub was lovely after days full of walking and cycling. We didn't find the double bed that comfortable, it was a bit hard for our liking, but obviously that's personal preference. We would definitely recommend this lodge.

An excellent lodge, in a great location on the park

Recently stayed in Bosun's Lodge on White Cross Bay holiday park after booking through Lake District Holidays. The cabin is in the 'Bowness' area of the park, where all the cabins are the wooden clad type. The location on the site was very quiet, but only a 2 minutes walk to the waters edge, and a 5 minute walk to the site reception which included the Boathouse bar and restaurant, and shop and swimming pool. Bosun's lodge is very modern inside, and fully equipped with everything you could need, from cooking utensils to appliances with a washing machine and dishwasher provided. The cabin was very clean and ready for our arrival. The little extras like coffee pods for the Nespresso machine and packets of sweets for the kids (teens) in our party were nice touches. The cabin also has a hot tub, which was ready for use, and we used each day. It is also positioned in a secluded area down the side and to the rear of the cabin, so its private. We only had one minor issue during heavy rain one day. The Electricity went off to the cabin, and after following the instructions to reset (in the handbook/file in the cabin), it would not come back on. I phoned the maintenance number and there was someone on site who came to look at the issue within minutes, and the electricity was back on. Included with the booking, was free use of a nearby health club for gym and swimming pool facilities, but we didn't use them. The site itself is very good, clean and most cars driving around respect the 5mph speed limit. We would definitely return to White cross Bay holiday park, and would definitely look to book this cabin again, as it was excellent and had everything we needed.

A lovely lodge that is exceptionally clean and comfortable. Kind additional touches from owner such as sweets on the bed on arrival for the children. We really enjoyed our stay and would definitely recommend Bosun’s Lodge.

Return to bosuns

Such a fantastic little lodge to stay in again, we loved it !! Such a shame that it’s let down again by the poorest onsite WiFi we’ve ever experienced topped with a reluctance to help from Parkdean staff .

Thank you for your kind review Lorraine, we are so pleased you enjoyed your stay in this fabulous lodge. We are sorry to hear you experienced problems with the onsite WiFi, unfortunately this is something outside of our control as it is provided by the park. We have passed your comments to the park management for their consideration. Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience caused. Bosun’s is a delightful lodge perfect for a relaxing stay, equipped with everything you need and within walking distance of the marina and lake it truly is perfect for an unforgettable holiday. It would be our pleasure to welcome you back for another stay in the future.

Fantastic time had by all

I stayed here with 2 of my kids for a short break. We all had such a great time in such a lovely location. The lodge itself was lovely and clean and very well stocked with lots of extras like a nespresso machine and lots of cleaning products. My kids had a great time and we all loved the hot tub. My only gripe would be having to be out the hot tub by 10pm but that’s a park rule not the owners fault.

Fabulous Break

Had a fabulous time at Bosuns Lodge. Lodge was immaculately clean, very spacious, kitchen had every utensil you would ever need. Outside area was very pleasant with two seating areas. The hot tub was very secluded with screening on all sides. We did not use any of the park facilities but did use Choices Health Club which again had excellent facilities. The position of the lodge in the park was in a very quiet area which was what we were looking for. Very close to all amenities that the Lake District has to offer. We will return to Bosuns Lodge.
