When deciding where to take your holidays, the world is your oyster. Modern advancements in air travel have meant that it is now easier – and cheaper – than ever to jet off to exotic locations. So why is it that the staycation – where UK residents opt to stay within the country – is on the rise?
In a recent study, UK tourism was shown to be increasing at an exponential rate. With more and more Brits deciding to travel to beautiful domestic destinations, including Cornwall, Dorset and the Isle of Wight, it is clear to see why.
The Lake District, one of the most recent areas of natural beauty to be awarded the prestigious UNESCO World Heritage status, is a prime example of one of these desirable locations. With a wealth of historical, cultural and scenic activities, Windermere Marina Village is the perfect staycation destination.
An area of remarkable beauty, the Lake District is also known for its unparalleled way of catering to tourists. Whether you decide to stay for a short break or a longer duration, there are a wealth of exciting ventures to enjoy.
First of all is the surrounding environment. The Lakes is renowned for its rich and varied landscape, filled with lush flora and enchanting fauna. Take a walk in any direction from Bowness-on-Windermere and you are guaranteed sights of breathtaking fells, mere’s, and wildlife. Enjoy an afternoon contemplating William Wordsworth’s concept of the Sublime, in the very surroundings that inspired the Romantic way of thinking.
For young children, why not visit The World of Beatrix Potter? With exciting events hosted throughout the year, a fun-filled day for the whole family is guaranteed.

Fantastic Transport Links
As is common with a staycation, many choose to bring their own car to the Lake District. This not only makes the entire National Park accessible but also allows you the freedom to keep your own schedule. Take a day or two exploring the surrounding villages and towns and get to know the area that so many return to annually.
If access to a car is limited, you can still take advantage of the superior local transport links. With bus routes running regularly through highlights in the surrounding area, visiting several points of interest has never been as easy, stress-free and affordable!
Whilst Windermere Marina Village offers luxury self-catering accommodation, the Lake District is known for its superb choice of restaurants. There’s no need to cook if you don’t feel like it. You are on holiday, after all!
A holiday in the Lakes gives you a great opportunity to try out some of the North’s best food, from modern cuisine to more traditional fare.
On-site is The Boathouse Bar & Restaurant, offering a stellar selection of choices to suit all palates. The welcoming bar and restaurant makes for the perfect end to a brilliant day and boasts a south-facing terrace, offering the setting sun as a breathtaking backdrop to your evening meal.
