The vibrant twin towns of Bowness and Windermere hold enduring appeal for many visitors to the Lake District, both providing a range of amenities, shops and restaurants to suit all tastes. Boat trips are available from Bowness to Ambleside, the Lakeside Aquarium and Beatrix Potter’s ‘Hill Top House’ at Sawrey. Orrest Head, where Alfred Wainwright was inspired to write his series of iconic guidebooks, is on the edge of the town and Grizedale Forest Park is nearby, with delightful walks, mountain biking and the ‘Go Ape’ adventure park. There are many National Trust properties in the area, as well as a variety of watersports for the more energetic. Bowness and Windermere are ideally situated for exploring all the region has to offer - within easy reach of destinations such as Langdale, Grasmere, Coniston Water, Kendal, Keswick, and the Lakeland Mountains, including Scafell Pike, England’s highest.

The central location of the property was ideal for Bowness and Windermere. The property had everything you needed for your stay. Ideal for a young family as well with games, DVD's and CD's.

An excellent location - only a 1 minute walk into Bowness. Lovely cottage.
Mrs Matthams, Lydney, June 2012
We thought the house was in a brilliant location. With our small children we were very well placed to stroll around Bowness and to the lake. We were also well placed to explore the wider lake district area and we had some lovely days out. The house itself was a pleasure to stay in.
