Boat Show Coming to Windermere

A Brand New

Windermere Boat Show

Coming Soon to the Shores of Lake Windermere

Friday 20th - Sunday 22nd March 2015

The first ever Windermere Boat Show will be held next month.

From the 20th to the 22nd of March, boats from sports vessels to 40 foot motor cruisers will be on display at Shepherds Marine and Windermere Marina Village.

The FREE event is hoped to be the first of a series of annual Boat Shows on the lake.

Among the prestigious models on display will be the award-winning Sealine F380, alongside luxurious Four Winns speed boats, Jeanneau sail boats and the Haines 32 cruiser.

It's aimed at both those people who are new to boating, as well as the more experienced enthusiast.

The Windermere Boat Show will run from 10am to 6pm, from Friday the 20th to Sunday the 22nd of March behind the reception area at Windermere Marina Village.

If your passion is boating and all things related, then why not book your stay with us at Holmlea and take advantage of this FREE boat show on Lake Windermere just a short walk from the guest house.

Soak up the atmosphere and outstanding beauty of the Lake and make this a weekend you will not want to miss.

FairBooking at Holmlea

Reserve Your Stay in Cumbria

by Choosing to Book Direct

We have recently signed up to Cumbria Tourisms FairBooking Scheme

FairBooking is an initiative promoted by Cumbria Tourism, the official Tourist Board and Destination Management Organisation in Cumbria, which aims to provide the best accommodation deal for customers and a better deal for the local tourism industry in the location you intend visiting.

You may not be aware that large Online Travel Agents charge us 15-20% commission to receive bookings from their sites, and none of that money goes back into the local economy, or helps our business.

We therefore want to avoid paying this commission and highlight to our customers the benefits of booking direct and online via our own trusted website

How does FairBooking work?

The concept is straight forward. FairBooking encourages consumers to book directly with the accommodation establishment. Why? Booking your accommodation via our website ensures that our customers get the best deal.

What do you get for booking direct?

What do we do in return for your direct booking?
  • We will donate 50p from all our direct bookings directly to our chosen cause The Cumbria Air Ambulance.

What do you get for booking via an Online Travel Agent?

In Summary - 3 great reasons to book direct!

  • The best deal for you - our guest
  • A better deal for locals and the local destination
  • A better deal for our business 

Thank you for booking direct on your next holiday in the Lake District.
