This holiday takes place in the scenic county of Cumbria, in England’s northwest. Windermere and the surrounding area is arguably one of the most popular holiday destinations in the whole of the Lake District! Lake Windermere is England’s largest natural lake, stretching 10 miles across the South Lakes and surrounded by stunning views and rugged fells. On its shorelines you will find historic market towns, quaint villages, and traditional inns.
Situated on the banks of Lake Windermere and close to the village of Bowness, Windermere Marina offers spectacular views across the water and to the undulating hills beyond. The property is built using traditional Lake District materials and sports a modern, luxurious interior, with beautiful decor.
Most of the accommodation is on the ground floor, so you can enjoy accessible comfort in spacious surroundings. There is a choice of King or Twin bedrooms, one slightly separated from the other three. All have ensuite shower rooms in which the showers may need to be accessed by a small step, apart from one of the King rooms which instead has an ensuite, fully-accessible wet room.
Lake Windermere is perfectly placed for a range of activities, whatever the weather. On fine days, enjoy a boat trip across the lake or a ride on a steam train while you take in the picturesque views. In more adventurous weather, make use of the beautiful French windows to watch the waves, or cosy up in the local pub for a hearty meal.
Every holiday with Dementia Adventure is unique! Your itinerary may vary depending on the date, and will be released to you in good time before your departure — usually about two to three weeks prior.
