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.

Returning Guest

I was taken to bosuns in march on a surprise girlie weekend, Loved it so much decided to book a 4 day break for me and hubby a few weeks later . He was as pleased as i was with the space and comfort that the lodge offered. Even better to see a screen has been erected around the hot tub making it really private. The weather was fantastic as well adding to a great break away . Will definately book again and recommend to friends and family

Fabulous lodge in a great location

This lodge was home from home. Very clean and some lovely added touches, like sweets in the kids room and nespresso capsules. Everything you could want in the lodge. We ate in every night as the facilities were so good we didn't want to leave the lodge. and the hot tub was a nice welcome after some long walks. There were walks straight out from the lodge so you didn't need to use the car and Brockhole, a 10 mins walk down the road was lovely with plenty of things to do for the children and an information centre. However you can print the walks off before you go and then you don't have to pay for them. I wouldn't hesitate to return to this lodge and will be looking again for next year. Thanks for a wonderful stay, creating some more superb family memories.

Cosy & clean

Really happy with the lodge, all areas were really clean and everything in good condition and working order. The hot tub was great, we used it twice every day! Very relaxing after a day out walking & sightseeing. And even though it was outside on the decking, because of the positioning of the neighbouring lodges it was fairly private. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay, wouldn’t hesitate to come again.

Review date: 12th April 2019

Thank you for your excellent review Holly, we are delighted to hear you enjoyed your stay. Bosun’s Lodge is a very popular two bedroom cosy lodge, ideally placed within a short distance to the marina and lake. We agree with you, the hot tub at this lodge is amazing and is perfect for relaxing in after a day visiting the local attractions. We look forward to welcoming you back in the future, complete with your returning guest discount.
