They are happy to get you to pay to park there, the sign on the road says "OPEN" so it implies that
You can go in; however, they said that it was fully booked so you couldn't attend, even if there was next to no one next to you when you try to pay £28 per person or £21 per child to do it!!!

There are far better things to do in the Windermere area!
