This is a spacious 3 bed, 3 bath property that has been refurbished recently. Well equipped kitchen, a smart tv and private WiFi so good signal. Loved the powered recliner on the new sofa and the super king size bed in bed 3. Quiet location but easy walk to Bowness for lively

Spent a week here in a two bedroom townhouse overlooking the lagoon. We had plenty of space and it appeared recently refurbished,with good quality fittings and appliances in the kitchen and throughout. The view wasn't as good as the apartments which directly overlook the marina,

We stayed at No.18. Great location and superbly equipped although 'luxury' is perhaps an overstatement. I would have given the accommodation a 4 star recommendation albeit for some significant issues; 1. Bedroom: double bed felt very cramped and the heavy polyester wadding

Response from Hannah_Sewell, General Manager at Windermere Marina Village
Responded 31 Jul 2018
Dear indigoandblue I’m sorry that your stay didn’t meet your expectations. I’ve asked our team to try and rectify the issues you’ve raised that can be attended to. We offer a wide range of properties - all have individual features that appeal to different customers. Many do have private balconies and king or Super king size beds. We will always try to address all noise complaints, whatever the source - however as some our properties are apartments some noise from other guests is unfortunately unavoidable. I hope that we can welcome you to Windermere Marina Village again in the future - our on-site reservations team are on hand 7 days a week to advise the best property for your needs. Best Regards Hannah

Are there washing machines in the apartments? Thanks
Hi Sara, all of our apartments have washing machines. The Cottages don’t but we have a laundry on site that you can access.

There is a lot to do in the area. We were with our two young grandchildren, so we did family things. There is the Beatrix Potter Exhibition in Bowness, Beatrix Potter`s house at Hilltop, Sawrey, the boat cruise across Lake Windermere to the Aquarium from Bowness, Muncaster Castle and Birds of Prey Centre ( a 50 minute drive away ). Bowness itself is a 10 minute walk along the very pretty designated lakeshore path ( completely safe for children ) from the public car park on the opposite side of the road to Windermere Marina Village.

It’s about a ten minute walk. However, the on-site marina bar is excellent.
