New ‘Shop and Cruise’ Winter Warmer launched

Published: 29th October 2012

Visitors to the Lake District are set to start 2013 in style with a relaxing seasonal cruise on England’s largest lake, coupled with some retail therapy at one of the region’s premier shopping outlet centres.

Windermere Lake Cruises and K Village, the Lakes Outlet, have joined together to offer a great day out to coach passengers looking for a unique mix of bargains, followed by a memorable boat trip - complete with some winter warmer treats.

K Village, known as “Shoe Heaven”, will be the first stop on the ‘Shop and Cruise’ excursion. Located in Kendal at the gateway to the stunning Lake District National Park, shoe fanatics can indulge their addiction with the largest Clarks store in the North of England, alongside top names like Staccato and Pavers Shoes. With some impressive savings (up to 60% off RRP), they’ll even have money left over to pamper themselves on a range of other great brands.

Later, visitors can sit back and enjoy a well-earned break with a leisurely cruise on Lake Windermere. Passengers will take in the wintry landscape surrounding the lake, from the warmth and comfort of one of Windermere Lake Cruises’ traditional or modern launches. Among the winter warmers on offer will be coffee, brandy or even a hearty cup of hot chocolate with a hint of rum.

Visitors will enjoy unique views of wooded shorelines and lovely tranquil bays - and who knows, maybe even snow-capped mountains basking in crisp winter sunshine? What better way to experience the seasonal splendour of one of the world’s most famous landscapes?
