New Year is coming

The New Year is coming. As 2012 draws to an end, it is impossible to believe how quickly it has flown by. In Bowness-on-Windermere, Lake District, the year has been particularly marked by a couple of significant crowd pleasers: the Olympic torch relay and the Great North Swim.

Of course the Lake District also attracts visitors because of its beautiful landscapes and countryside throughout the year. This is especially apparent during public holiday long weekends, when most people have an extra day off and can take time to relax a little more in beautiful destinations. For visitors who wish to combine peace and tranquillity with a little R&R, Blenheim Lodge is an ideal place for doing this. We are located atop a quiet hillock with rooms boasting stunning views of Lake Windermere and fells or woodlands.

Bright blue skies, stunning lake, snow-capped mountains – what a spectacular setting to enjoy from your room at Blenheim Lodge, our guest house in Bowness-on-Windermere.

Bowness-on-Windermere town is situated a 5-minute walk from Blenheim Lodge, and will be open as usual over the New Year long weekend. Restaurants, pubs, cafes and bistros will be open for meals, and local attractions, such as Windermere Lake Cruises and The World of Beatrix Potter, will be open to visitors. Other areas of the Lake District will also be open for business, and visitors will find plenty to see and do.

At Blenheim Lodge, we are offering bed and breakfast accommodation over New Year. If you are looking for a refreshing break at the turn of the year before plunging into 2013, our Bowness guest house should hopefully fit your criteria. Ours is a homely place, warm and inviting; and we would love to share Blenheim Lodge with you.

For guests travelling or visiting alone during the festive season, you will find Blenheim Lodge a welcoming retreat where you should not feel lost. For couples wanting a romantic break, do consider booking our French ‘boudoir’ which overlooks tranquil woods and fields. For families and friends considering a break in Bowness, we have a guest lounge where all can gather together for games or chats.

Blenheim Lodge is conveniently located for the train station, being a 5-minute ride from it. For those who are driving to the Lake District, we have an on-site private car park. Once here, guests will have easy walking access to all local amenities and attractions, including walks and viewpoints in the National Trust countryside behind our guest house.

We look forward to welcoming guests to Blenheim Lodge any time of the year. If you are thinking of staying with us and have any questions, do feel free to telephone or email us to ask or or to book accommodation. A stay at Blenheim Lodge may also be booked online if you prefer this method.
