Arrived on Monday 16th June for a four night stay and were very impressed with the accommodation and location. Stayed in Cottage 9. Nice walk into Bowness and had fun on the pitch and putt course. Weather was amazing and never needed to put on a jacket.
Ate at the Boathouse which was a really nice meal and also sat outside on a few occasions for just a drink and watch the world go by.
Would definitely recommend staying here and we will be back.

We are here for my husbands 50th birthday. We booked in for a week. When we arrived we could not believe how lovely it was, right on the edge of the marina. We had a ground floor 2 bedroom apartment. High spec with neff appliances excellent bathrooms really we'll equipped, and extremely well furnished. Actually a real home from home. We also had a very large decked patio area. This accommodation is highly recommended by me. The location is excellent, really close to Bowness on windermere and windermere. Good access to all other areas of the Lake District. We will definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Apartment 16 is really good and it is close to the boathouse restaurant which is on property

We absolutely love Windermere Marina Village. Just got back from spending another week there for the fourth year on the run. We stayed in one of the Bowness Cottages as usual. They don't overlook the main marina - just a small private marina - but are wonderful and peaceful. The cottages are beautifully presented with the living room upstairs to take advantage of the views from the balcony. The two bedrooms have ample storage - as does the whole cottage. As usual, it was lovely and clean and stocked with every amenity that you need when self catering - dishwaher tablets, washing up liquid, kitchen foil, tea towels - things that you don't really want the hassle of taking. There are also lots of games left for you to enjoy - chess, draughts, cards, trivial pursuit, jenga etc. Much needed on an evening, as Bowness itself is not that busy in the evenings on a Sun - Thurs! You also get passes to a local hotel where there is a swimming pool and spa-type facilities - no jacuzzi though! On the Marina itself is a bbq area that we use every year and always have to ourselves - even though it is big enough to facilitate more than one family. We thoroughly love it there and will be going back next year!

Room Tip: Bowness cottages are slightly cheaper as they don't overlook the main marina!

We stayed here for 4 nights in May. The location is wonderful, walkable to Bowness but far enough away to be peaceful and relaxing. Our cottage had a balcony overlooking the marina where we were able to sit out rain or shine. The accommodation was very well equipped, clean, modern and spacious. The staff at reception were helpful and there is a pub/restaurant onsite which was reasonably priced and a nice place to sit with a drink watching the boats. The cottage hire was expensive, but you get great quality and location your money.

We loved windermere marina village and would definitely recommend it to anyone thinking about it. We stayed in a beautiful modern one bedroom apartment for four nights in May. As expected the Lake District weather did not always live up to much but we were just as happy relaxing in our apartment. The kitchen was fantastic and well equipped - we enjoyed cooking our own evening meals with the dishwasher coming in very handy, as well as enjoying the lovely on-site boathouse restaurant one evening.

Only a 10 minute stroll into beautiful Bowness-on-windermere. We made good use of the gym and spa facilities at the Old England hotel which you are entitled to staying at the marina village, the pool is beautiful - so relaxing! Our only small complaint is that we didn't get to use our balcony much as the rain dripped through from above, the appartment next door had sheeting above so their balcony was dry even when it was raining - this would have been great as it wasn't cold just wet and we would have like to have been able to sit out more.

Visited here with a group of friends on activity weekend.
Stayed in Rydal Cottage - number 25.
Facilities were immaculate, everything was well-organised and view (albeit through some rain) was classy - looking out at the yachts on the marina.

Great stuff, wouldn't hesitate to recommend.

Great marina with excellent on site restaurant/Bar - The Boathouse offering quality food and drink with a lovely waterside terrace and at prices that rival less impressive options in Bowness town- very friendly staff and very well presented food and generally an excellent quality atmosphere - the place itself is new, nicely designed and clean. The pizzas are excellent !
