Take the turning from bowness towards Ambleside and there is a car park opposite the Beartrix potter museum for £15 for 3 days. It’s only a 10 Minuets walk from the hotel. Much better value than the rip off they charge.

There is a car park up the hill, approximately 5 mins walk from the hotel. It was full when we were there recently but I think you can reserve places on line, I believe it is about £15:00 for 3 days.
