Windermere Lake Cruises - A firm favourite with staff and visitors alike Windermere Lake Cruises offer cruise only or combined tickets for attractions on the Lake shore. Also offering evening, dining and music cruises there is no better way to see Windermere - as a resident of Windermere Marina Village you'll also get 10% off your cruise ticket!

Beatrix Potter - Beatrix took her inspiration from Hill Top Farm - only 1.8miles from Windermere Marina Village, take advantage of the ferry crossing that Beatrix herself would have used and visit Hill Top Farm. This cottage and garden has been immaculately preserved since the death of Beatrix and has many original features and artefacts.

Chocolate Factory - For a day out the kids will remember take a trip to the Chocolate Factory at Hawkshead - let their experienced staff take the strain while you relax with a coffee watching the chaos unfold!
