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.

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.

A perfect weekend with friends

On arrival, the lodge greeted us with a cosy and comfortable feel and we wasn't disappointed.The hot tub is welcoming, even on a wet and windy weekend and is discreetly tucked away from the road and hardly overlooked. We arrived with the tail end of Storm Gareth but sitting in the lodge, with all its amenities was a perfect place to be on a wet Saturday in the lakes enjoying good company. The layout is spacious and more than enough room for 4 adults. The place is immaculately clean and well maintained and the beds are very comfortable. If you do manage to venture out it's in a great location in the park, only a short walk to onsite bar and restaurant and not far from the lake. We had a great weekend and would definitely return.

Perfect weekend away!

Went for a short weekend away. The lodge has everything you need and more. Was only a 5 min drive into windermere and great location, straight onto the lake! The hot tub was amazing, was already warm and ready to go in when we arrived on Friday night. Highly recommend.

Wonderful Lodge

What a wonderful lodge,we had a great weekend away! The lodge is excellent, very clean inside and set out well! It is situated very close to the lake and was only a couple of minutes walk to the main clubhouse. The hot tub was brilliant and was checked everyday to ensure it was clean and safe to use! Also,the utensils and everything provided just adds a extra touch and came in really handy! Would love to stay at this lodge again and highly recommend it to anyone!
