As an early Spring seems to be springing up on us – forgive the pun, but I just could not resist – I would like to invite you guys to be our guests at Blenheim Lodge B&B. We have been working hard and collaborating with local providers to offer discount vouchers to attractions and coming up with some fantastic romance and adventure packages. Let me tell you about them below.


  • Windermere Lake Cruises Discount Vouchers

As you may already know, Blenheim Lodge is located a very short 7-10 minute walk to Lake Windermere and the pier. From the pier at Bowness Bay, one can catch ferries that regularly ply the Lake to the main villages surrounding it, which are Ambleside, Lakeside, and Hawkshead. Bowness on Windermere, where Blenheim Lodge is situated, is the hub from and to which all the ferries pick up and drop off on their way to and from these surrounding villages.

Blenheim Lodge has arranged an exclusive 10% discount for our guests when travelling on these ferries. When you book a stay at Blenheim Lodge, do let us know that you want to take a ferry cruise, and ask for your voucher. Ferry cruises that do not stop at the villages are also available. The ferries are operated by Windermere Lake Cruises. For more information about the cruises they run, please visit

  • Say It with Style

Stay with us for a romantic break. We have gorgeous antique 4-posters and Louis XV beds. Our rooms are lovingly furnished with beautiful Lake, mountain and countryside views. Add a dash of romance to your stay with flowers and champagne, sweeten it with handmade luxury chocolate truffles, and top it of with a handcrafted cake that shouts, ‘ I love YOU!’. We can arrange this and more for your special day.

  • Romance on Lake Windermere

For something different, let us arrange a yacht cruise for you, where you can whisper sweet nothings to each other while you watch the sun set over the horizon. The sunset cruise includes cheese and wine on board, and if you want the whole yacht to yourselves, do ask. We can do this for dinner too as a variation to the theme.


  • Sail Away

If you want to experience the water at first hand, why not try a yacht cruise with lunch included? Don’t know how to sail? No bother! We can arrange for the skipper to give you some guidance, and in no time at all, you will be talking the helm. If you want the yacht all to yourself or your party, do let us know, and we will arrange this.

  • The One that Got Away

Enjoy fishing? Well, we can provide two FREE fishing permits for guests staying with us to fish in Windermere and Ambleside Angling Association waters. The permits allow you to fly and coarse fish, and I can tell you that I have seen some nice catches! The closest water you can fish at is Lake Windermere.

So, do come and visit us. It will be nice to meet the people who read this blog. If you have any questions, do phone or email us and we will try to help.

‘Blenheim Lodge . . . panoramic Lake views, peace and tranquillity, nestled against acres of beautiful fields and woodlands, in the heart of the English Lake District National Park.’
