Bowland Bridge Holiday Cottages

Just Show Me Bowland Bridge Cottages

Welcome to the Winster Valley and the picturesque hamlet of Bowland Bridge, a hidden corner of the Lake District National Park, yet just ten minutes from Kendal and also from Lake Windermere. The valley was a favourite haunt of Wordsworth and is famous for growing damsons - look out for homemade jam, damson gin and roadside stalls in autumn.

Though tiny, the village offers a well-equipped general store selling everything you might need during your Bowland Bridge cottage holiday - bread, milk, local produce, newspapers etc. It's also home to two terrific pubs, both renowned for serving real ales, fine wines and delicious food.

Get out and about and explore this gloriously rural and tranquil area - enjoy leisurely drives and cycles along quiet country lanes, or don boots and head cross-country over the grassy fells. For wonderful views of Lake Windermere, try the viewpoint over Gunner's How.
