Having a boat on the beautiful Lake Windermere is nothing short of a dream come true, exploring the lake, bays and villages around the area makes Windermere the place to be.
Low Wood Bay Marina
After an adventurous day sailing or cruising, it’s comforting to know you have exceptional facilities waiting for you back at the Marina. The Marina was fully refurbished in 2017 with a whole new floating system on anchors allowing it to rise and fall with the level of the lake. Boats can be kept on the water all year round or they can be lifted out of the water for the winter period between November and March. The Marina is part of Low Wood Bay Resort & Spa; this gives you, as a berth holder, instant access to some of the best and most luxurious facilities in the area.

The Spa provides indulgent treatments in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. Feel revitalised with an ESPA or Berry & Birch massage and facial, or try an invigorating Thermal Journey.
