The booking via Sykes was very 'user-friendly', done very easily by helpful and friendly staff, and follow up emails quick and efficient.

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!
When you fancy a bite to eat, a welcoming brew or a pint of real
ale, Bowness pulls out all the stops with numerous eating and
drinking establishments. Shopping is great, too, so finding a
keepsake or filling your Bowness cottage larder is never a problem.
Children will love The World of Beatrix Potter Attraction.
You'll find some interesting old vessels at the Steamboat
Museum. Blackwell is a superb example of an Arts and Crafts house.
Add the Royalty Cinema, Old Laundry Theatre, plus fabulous gardens
and heritage sites all within a short drive - no wonder Bowness
cottages are such a popular choice!
