about windermere and bowness
Windermere is the perfect Lakeland destination all year round. With the shores of the lake so close, you are never short of fantastic scenery or leisure activities. Several local viewpoints offer panoramic views of both the lake and more distant mountains.
Bowness-on-Windermere is one of the most popular holiday locations in the Lake District. With immediate access to the waters of Windermere, it is an excellent base for water activities, including boating and leisurely water attractions. As well as boat hire or family watersports.
