Established for over twenty five years, Windermere Marina Village is situated centrally on Lake Windermere in a quiet inlet off the main lake just south of the car ferry. This secluded location provides shelter from the wind and waves creating a safe and calm environment for mooring and enjoying your boat all year round.

One mile south of the main lakeside town of Bowness on Windermere, Windermere Marina Village is convenient for local amenities and access to the fantastic cruising grounds of Lake Windermere as well as the surrounding National Park by foot or car.

With fantastic on-site facilities, including fully serviced jetty berths (with mains electricity) to simple berths, a boat service and sales centre (Shepherds Marine) and a modern shower block and laundry, the Marina can accommodate sports boats, leisure cruisers and yachts up to a maximum length of 50 feet and maximum draft of 3′ 6″. We also have a limited number of berths with larger draft available.

Please contact Dan Fairweather for more information regarding your mooring.

Mooring Holders have access to exclusive discounted rates for Windermere Marina Village’s self-catering holiday cottages.

Continual improvements to the site and facilities make Windermere Marina Village the North’s premier inland Marina.
