Had a brilliant stay in the cottontail lodge. It had everything you needed. Perfect location on the site also just a stones throw from the lake. White cross bay is on between Bowness and Ambleside and a few minutes walk to the go ape, plenty to do. Would recommend and will be returning in the future.
