Beside the lake beneath the trees lies Bassenthwaite Lakeside Lodges, an exclusive privately owned holiday park situated on the edge of Bassenthwaite Lake at the foot of the dramatic Skiddaw mountain in the Lake District National Park. Their superb lodges offer an idyllic setting in one of the Lake District’s most gloriously unspoilt areas. Here you can share the woods with the red squirrels, the waterside with the wildfowl and the lake with the reflected sky. Tranquillity surrounds you in this verdant woodland setting, whilst across the lake, the mountains and fells seem to march down to meet the water, creating a vista of unique timeless beauty.

At Gingerboats our passion is building wooden and composite boats. We use not only traditional methods, but also the latest in modern design and construction techniques. From our small workshop near Keswick, Cumbria we do more than build new boats. As well as custom projects we can repair any form of damage including wood, GRP, epoxy foam sandwich and carbon. Gingerboats also has years of experience refurbishing, re-fitting, rigging and tuning a huge range of boats. We pride ourselves on our attention to details on every job we do, from a small repair to a new boat.
