Win a waterside retreat in the Lake District

The Lake District is a place of awe-inspiring landscapes; its majestic fells, beautiful lakes and ancient villages make it a haven from the busy outside world.


Windermere Marina Village’s luxury self-catering accommodation is nestled around a private marina, on the shore of England’s longest lake. The marina provides an idyllic retreat to sit and watch the boats go drifting by.


Although in a secluded spot, the marina village is only a short lakeside walk away from the town of Bowness-on-Windermere and all its amenities, while the village itself has a bar and bistro on the water’s edge, and a grocery shop where you can order hampers and grocery boxes and have them delivered to your door.


The lucky winner will enjoy a seven-night stay for up to six guests in any of the marina’s four-star cottages. In each beautifully furnished cottage, the open-plan living accommodation leads to a private balcony – a great spot to enjoy a cool drink after a day exploring the Lake District. The winner and guests will also have free use of the Parkland Leisure Club nearby.To find out more about Windermere Marina Village, call 01539 446551 or visit their website.
