Thinking of a New Year break?

It’s that time of the year when our thoughts go to the New Year festivities to come in December and January as we see in 2014. At Blenheim Lodge Bed and Breakfast, we have decided to open for New Year from 28th December 2013. We normally make a really late decision about whether and when we will open for New Year so we have decided to offer discounted rates based on our 2008 tariffs instead of upping our prices for 2013.

Plan a last minute break over New Year. Stay in The Langdale and enjoy your beauty sleep in this magnificent antique four-poster bed. Gaze out of the triple floor to ceiling bay windows and take in those marvellous panoramic Lake and fell views!

The public holiday rates for the New Year period will start at £53 per person per night for Bed and Breakfast in The Poppies, staying in an en-suite room with Lake Windermere views. Prices will range up to £76 per person per night for Bed and Breakfast depending on the room chosen, as our guest rooms are all very different.

This is The Poppies, a small ground floor room with walk-in shower en-suite. There is a very comfortable bespoke mattress from And So To Bed on the painted wrought iron bed from Feather and Black.

Although all our rooms have a Lake and/or fell view, by virtue of the quirky character of this Victorian home and the location of each room in our guest house, all the rooms are very much individual in size and the views they enjoy. Thus, our prices do reflect the sizes of the rooms and how good the views are from each of them. We have rooms for single, double, twin and triple occupancy.

This is The Dalesway, one of our bedrooms that offers flexible sleeping configurations of double, twin and triple occupancy. This lovely bedroom is my favourite and overlooks fields and woodlands at the back of our Bowness Bed and Breakfast, Blenheim Lodge.

The New Year holidays this year fall very conveniently to include a couple of weekends. In case anyone wishes to take advantage of holiday time off, we have also included a further discount in our tariffs. We normally request a stay of three nights over the New Year period. However, if someone wants to stay an extra 4th, 5th or 6th night, we will offer an extra £15, £20 or £25 off the total tariff. Guests might perhaps put that extra savings into buying souvenirs of their stay in the lovely Lake District or towards a nice meal in a local or not so local restaurant!

The village of Bowness-on-Windermere will be open as usual, with the ferries sailing and many shops, pubs, and restaurants welcoming visitors and residents alike. Within the Lake District National Park itself, the majority of attractions, shops, pubs and restaurants will likewise be open. Of course the countryside is always available to sightseers, walkers and climbers.

As we have only just begun to advertise opening for New Year at Blenheim Lodge, we are presently able to accommodate large family groups looking for a New Year break away together. We have a guest lounge which is nice for family get togethers or simply for some quiet space to read or write. Children are welcome although we have no cots or high chairs.

A fireplace with a tray of tea, newpapers and magazines to read - come and enjoy our lounge at Blenheim Lodge.

Relax in our cosy lounge by the fireplace; read your newspaper in peace; enjoy a cup of tea or coffee . . . just bliss!

To reiterate, our 2008 prices are available for online and phone or email bookings. However, in order to take advantage of the further discount available to longer stays, please ensure that you contact us direct. Our details are in the body of this post and also in our sign-off lines below. We look forward to welcoming you!
