Visit Bowness on Windermere
The bustling Bowness nestled along the shores of Lake Windermere is one of the most popular family destinations the Lakes has to offer. Boat trips and boat hire, a quirky mix of antique and craft corners, boutiques and attractions like the Beatrix Potter World – it’s the fun of the Lake District rolled into one action packed day out. There’s a choice of highly recommend restaurants and lakeside cafes to explore with something different on every turn.
You’re stepping into memories with a Victorian influence to be seen everywhere – 19th century large residencies were built overlooking the lake. Today these buildings are converted into the hotels, restaurants and other attractions like the National Park Visitor Centre.
It’s perfectly located for the more adventurous tourist looking to travel during their stay. Boat trips offer easy access to attractions around the lake in stop-off points including Lakeside and Ambleside and there’s ample opportunities for boat hire across the bay. Hop on the car ferry taking you across the width of the lake from south Bowness, to Sawrey and Hawkshead.
What’s more, this lakeside retreat is right on your doorstep with a short 20 minute walk from the Windermere Suites. For directions, please see the map below:
