“Excellent place to stay”
Reviewed 1 February 2012

We stayed here in the first week of January with our pets. The accomodation was spacious, well decorated, clean etc. and I loved the open plan feel of the upstairs lounge/kitchen area. The bedrooms were lovely as was having an en-suite and a main bathroom with doors into the second bedroom and central hallway. There was plenty of parking and also a great view from upstairs. The reception staff were very helpful both when booking and during our stay. We really enjoyed our visit and hope to return.

Just returned from a 3 night break at WMV. First time staying here and we will definitely return. Although slightly disappointed by Bowness - a couple of years since we last visited and it has become a tad too 'fish and chip shop' touristy for us, however, the accomodation more than made up for it. The complex is a fantastic base for sightseeing the area and it is a particularly good base for cyclists. The apartment was large and roomy and fitted out to a high standard, washing machine, dishwasher, NEFF oven etc. We stayed at the end of Jan and WMV was perfectly quiet and peaceful - luxury. The staff on checking in/out were helpful and effecient. We hope to go again in Nov and cycle the area more, visit Cartmel and do some more quad biking which was great fun.
Great balcony area overlooking the marina with a handful of local greedy ducks! Be careful not to slip, the decking can get a bit slippy in the winter months. The bed was a little soft for me but this did not detract from a really great 3 days in a lovely location in superb accomodation.

Room Tip: They all looked good to us!

The apartment we chose at the Windermere Marina Village exceeded expectation.
It was very modern with a delightful view across the marina, fully equipped and sesigner kitchen and stunning bathroom. The two bedrooms were furnished with the most comfortable beds you could wish for. There was a laundry with washing machine and dryer. The lounge and dining room were open plan with the kitchen. The lounge suite was very low to the ground and slightly uncomfortable but that was a minor issue when in residence at such a stunning place.
The apartment was upstairs so there could be an issue if climbing stairs (with luggage) is difficult. Ample parking right to the door.
The village is decently positioned, a short and enjoyable walk away from the main Windermere centre.
I would thoroughly recommend this property, the prices are very reasonable, especially when sharing costs, for what you will surely be delighted with.

Arrived at night...woke to find a stunning location (windy & rainy, but non the less) with first class interiors. Huge lounge, bathrooms lovely, a kitchen better than mine.

Perfect base for outdoors/walking weekend or total relaxing on the massive soft leather sofas

Will be returning for sure

After staying at the Lancaster House Hotel one night last November, we went for a drive along Windermere and decided to stop and have a look at the Marina at Bowness. We spotted the sales office so enquired about availability etc, as we wanted to stop somewhere for a weekend prior to Christmas for my wife, son, daughter and their respective partners to spend some quality time together. We stopped in one of the cottages which slept 6 people. The two bedrooms were really comfortable, both being effectively en-suite and the pull down double bed in the living room was ideal. The furnishings and overall layout of the cottage were excellent, with close attention to detail and superb finish. The upstairs living room with patio door to the balcony provided a stunning view over the Marina. Everything was provided for a superb stay, and we felt at home as soon as we arrived there. Bowness is only a 15-20 minute walk and there are plenty of shops to see and places to eat. There’s even a small Tesco for anyone self catering. All six of us would love to return, and this really did make our Christmas this year. Can't wait to go back!
