Tarn Cottage


Located overlooking our marina at Windermere Marina Village, our Tarn Cottages near Bowness on Windermere are located close to our onsite bar & restaurant and are within close walking distance of the village.

These Tarn cottages - on the doorstep of Bowness on Windermere - are two of our more spacious pet friendly cottages, designed for those that require a touch more space. The top floor offers stunning views from your private balcony across the marina from the living room patio doors; perfect for alfresco dinning.

The open plan living room, kitchen and dining areas are situated on the first floor to make the most of the views, whilst downstairs two bedrooms and a family bathroom complete the accommodation. The master bedroom has a king-sized bed and an en-suite shower room, and also overlooks the main marina.

Tarn Cottages come with private parking, and have been carefully decorated and furnished. Built in traditional Lakeland slate, the cottages offer that "Lakeland character" combined with modern quality furnishings. They're the perfect base to stay when exploring The Lakes.
