For lots to see and do amid breathtaking scenery, our
Bowness-on-Windermere cottages promise all kinds of holiday fun for
everyone come rain or shine.
This bustling tourist resort nestles on the shores of
Windermere, so there's a strong focus on activities on and
around the lake. Many excursions run from the bay, whether you opt
for a traditional steamer or a wooden rowing boat. Learn how to
sail, enjoy the thrills of water skiing or enjoy a relaxing
day's fishing. Back on dry land, outdoor pursuits range from
golf and horse riding to some wonderful walking routes. There are
some great panoramic viewpoints - e.g. Orrest Head, Biskey Howe and
Post Knott - all offering outstanding Lakeland vistas. If your stay
in a Bowness-on-Windermere cottage is to celebrate a special
occasion, treat yourself to a trip in a hot-air balloon - the views
will take your breath away!
