A beautiful, scenic town on the very coast of Lake Windermere, Bowness provides a vast wealth of attractions to suit all personalities and weathers. Situated just a brief cycle ride south of Hawksmoor Lakeland Guest House, Bowness will easily become the centre of your Lake District holiday.
Savour the sights at the lake
Bowness and its adjoining bay make it a perfect destination for those seeking the beauty of the lake. Lake Cruises sail from the dock at Bowness, including a Bike Boat to connect avid cyclists to the beautiful, traffic-free, western shore, as well as many options to simply relax and enjoy the sights of the Lake District from the centre of its largest lake.
Rainy day options
In gloomier weather, Bowness has lots to keep the holiday going. The World of Beatrix Potter – a tribute to the great children’s author and the natural beauty of the Lake District that inspired her stories – is perfect for youngsters. Aside from this, the marvellous Royalty Cinema boasts an original 1930s theatre and Wurlitzer Organ, perfect for a silent movie showcase.
Whatever your fancy, Bowness will be able to serve. A wide range of restaurants of various settings and cultures is guaranteed to satisfy any appetite. From the refined menu available at the Porto Restaurant, to the rich flavours of the Emperor of India, you can eat your fill followed by a few local ales at The Hole-in-the-Wall, before carefully cycling to the Hawksmoor Lakeland Guest House
Bowness’s offerings make it a wonderful jewel to the already beautiful Lake Windermere. Come see for yourself.
