Bowness-on-Windermere – What to do while staying in town ?


cheap b&b windermere lake districtRelatively speaking, Bowness is a fairly new town in the Lake District. It does not have the charm of really old, Victorian buildings and the historic relevance and culture that many surrounding towns do, but it is a very popular destination for tourists because of its location.

Bowness-on-Windermere is a great place for all types of outdoor activities, such as water sports. People travel from across the country to visit the place and take part in activities such as windsurfing, kneeboarding or jet-skiing. It is not all about adrenaline packed water sports, you can also go for a meal on the water and it is in an ideal location for going hiking.

starWindermere Accommodation

The famous Brant fell walk is not far away from the town centre. This walk is not only physically demanding and tough to go on, but it can also get very cold up there, make sure you wrap up warm. The walk may be tough, because it is very steep, but it is also fairly short and well worth it when you scale the hill, sit back and look at the glorious view.

This walk is a great way to relax and great way to escape the hustle and bustle. The town can often get very busy and while some people love this, other people find it nice to get away from all that and this walk is a perfect way to do that and it will also keep you fit and healthy.

If you are a Beatrix Potter fan, then a trip to the world of Beatrix Potter should be high on the agenda. The character’s of her stories are brought to life with huge, beautiful models of them and it really can take you back to your child hood, as well as being ideal and enchanting for small children and young families.

Where should you stay when visiting for a holiday ? Rooms to let


guest houseA bed and breakfast or guest house property is what most people opt for when they come to stay in Bowness or Windermere. Cheap b&b’s really do give you the freedom of being able to choose what you want to do on your holiday.

This type of accommodation gives you the bare minimum in terms of the facilities, but hotel facilities are not usually high on the list of tourists who stay in the town.

A bed and breakfast room can be much cheaper than some hotels, but some cheap hotels do exist as well. A really nice hotel close to the lake is the Belsfield hotel; this beautiful, white, Victorian building overlooks the water and is in a perfect location.

The train station is located right in the heart of Windermere town centre and offers easy rail connections to central Manchester and Manchester Intl. Airport. When catching a train from the railway station, renting a room for the night within close distance can be very handy.
