The vibrant lakeshore town of Bowness-on-Windermere has a host of colourful shops and cafés, with a varied selection of restaurants to sample. Younger guests will love the World of Beatrix Potter where they can meet Peter Rabbit and his friends, or at Brockhole, the Lake District Visitor Centre, unleash your wild side and swing through the tree top adventure course.
