Each HAVEN PARK has different opening times and so you are guided to look at the availability page to be sure that the lodge will be open at the time you wish to visit. Some times the
lodge is available for the extended season which runs from 1st March to 3th January annually. Please note that communal facilities such as swimming pool, jacuzzi, clubroom etc. are not available bwteen 15th November and 1st March each year.

No. Our lodge is designated a complete no-smoking zone. It not only smells and so is annoying to us and other guests who may follow you, but it is now against the law (you are in a public place). It also invalidates the owners fire insurance.

Where can I get to on the bus..?
Our advice is not to rely upon a bus if you are
visiting the lakes unless it is to take a ride on some of the UK’s most scenic bus journeys. Stagecoach run a frequent’ish circular service (The Coniston Rambler) during the tourist season which starts at Windermere and runs through
Ambleside, Skelwith Bridge, Coniston and Hawkshead. (It calls at the car park of the Skelwith Bridge Hotel.) An additional service which runs from Ambleside along the Langdale Valley and back, twice a day, stops at the same place as The Rambler. An up to date
timetable is often posted in the window of the office at the tourist advise post
What about wheelchair access. Is it on
Remember you’re going to be in a family park. The service roads are made-up but many of the pathways are gravel.
The car parking area is all flat tarmac and there is a wheelchair ramp up onto the deck. in the club room From the car parking areas You should decide
which route is best suited for someone in a wheelchair without assistance.
Bath or shower..?
The lodge has a walk-in shower – no bathtub.

There is a numbered private car parking space at the lodge parking
zone . Car crime in the locality is exeptionally low, however, if you are leaving your car you should be aware that the vehicle will be visible from the lodge windows and door you dont have to leave the lodge to see your car , We are
