We only stayed overnight and was charged £20 so not sure if it is per day. Ensure your bill is correct when departing as it has taken nearly 4 weeks and Many phone calls to receive a credit from them.

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.
