Have rented properties in the Lakes for over 20 years but can honestly say that this is the best we have ever stayed in.The situation of our apartment right next to the boats in the Marina is stunning, although I could imagine it being a little noisy in the summer. The bed is comfortable, the bathroom is stunning and overall...

I booked the large 5 bed penthouse apartment for a family trip away for my Mum's birthday. The upstairs bedroom or 'den' is a massive space for children to play and sleep, whilst the living space and views were more than could be asked for. Located slightly out of Bowness-on-Windermere with a short walk into town and access to a...

Just had a wonderful Christmas at Windermere Marina apartment 43 and apartment 26. I have never been in such a well equipped holiday accommodation there was everything we needed to cook a Christmas dinner for 13 people. Apartment 43 was amazing so much space for all the people and the loft was great for all the party games. The additional...

Fantastic. From the excellent service at reception, to the quality of the apartments, houses. Close enough to the town centre for walking distance, but hidden away. Great views of the marina. A top quality bar/restaurant on site will excellent food, plus it caters for children. Not expensive. Will return

We have stayed at the Marina several times a year, every year for 7 years. It is a perfect base for us to set off for walks and mountain biking. It's also only five/ten minute walk past the lake into Bowness where you can catch ferries to most places. We now prefer to stay in the new apartments next to...

We stayed in the luxury windward apartment 2. Loads of great qualities, its dog friendly, a very short walk from the lake, loads of room, quiet location, well stocked with kitchen utensils, and cleaning tools (a must with a dog!) and its now my new favourite place to stay in the Lake District for sure!

As in my past reviews I have been staying at the marina for around 28 years, my family had one of the cottages. More recently we have stayed 3 times in different apartments. This time in apartment 35 which had lovely views over the marina looking through a picture window. However, I felt this apartment lacked the high end finish...

We have travelled to the lakes many times and the marina village is prob the best place to stay. The cottages are very comfortable and clean. It's so peaceful sitting on the balcony looking over the water seeing all the expensive boats come in and out is really nice . It's everything you need for a very pleasant trip. Within...
