Cosy Family Retreat, Bowness on Windermere

Every ingredient for a perfect Lake District holiday, family or friends, at any time of year. Through spectacular full wall windows and from a slightly elevated position, Lakeside View gazes out over Bowness Bay and Lake Windermere to the famous Lakeland Fells beyond. Only a stroll away are the vibrant village centre, the boating activities of the bay, and the contemporary high street of the Lake District's most popular destination. It's impossible not to breathe a sigh of relaxation in Lakeside View's first floor lounge; gasp at the view, sink into leather sofas and relax in good company. There's ample space for family or sociable meals, and access to a balcony from the elegant dining area. One of the 4 double bedrooms can be used as a twin (let us know when you book) providing flexible accommodation for family or groups.

Location
Bowness is undoubtedly the liveliest Lake District holiday destination; a contemporary Lakeland village built around a picturesque bay on the eastern shores of Windermere. Bowness Bay is alive with boating activities on Lake Windermere, from row boats and hire boats to elegant racing yachts from the Royal Windermere Yacht Club, and also the famous steamers which depart regularly to Ambleside and Lakeside. Windermere Golf Club is also just outside Bowness village, and the scenic course is a must for fans of the game.

The landscapes surrounding Bowness are stunning; if the views from your holiday home aren't enough then head up to Gummers How for a short but exhilarating walk with spectacular views from the summit. On your way down, sample one of the acclaimed Lake District country pub restaurants in the Lyth Valley - just to the east of Lake Windermere. There are many family attractions in Bowness, including the World of Beatrix Potter attraction - a must for those with young children. You'll find mini-golf and tennis on the lake shore, and plenty of choice for family friendly evenings. Hearty pub meals, contemporary restaurants, the Royalty Cinema and Old Laundry Theatre will leave you spoilt for choice.

From Bowness, it's easy to travel around and visit other popular locations in the National Park. Bus tours depart from the village, and you're very close to the A591 - the main route into the heart of the Lakes.

LocationCumbria & The Lake District

The rural county of Cumbria is one of the most attractive in England. It contains the whole of the area known as the Lake District, as well as the northern part of the Pennines mountain range and, somewhat counter-intuitively, a part of the Yorkshire Dales.

The county is replete with attractions for the visitor, its historic heritage ranging from houses and gardens to stone circles and activities ranging from walking and climbing to watersports and fishing. Cumbria's lakes, valleys and fells can loosely be broken down into eight areas.

The North Lakes are the most popular with the serious outdoor enthusiast and the South Lakes draw most of the holidaymakers. The Western Lakes are less busy but still hold some varied attractions and appeal to the walkers as well as families and groups. They are home to England's tallest mountain, known as Scafell Pike.

East Lakes has its quota of mountains too, including the well-known Helvellyn, and is a fairly quiet area. Visit the Eden Valley and North Pennine area for wilderness, castles and rural villages, or perhaps consider North and South Cumbria. In the former we find Hadrian's Wall and the city of Carlisle. In the latter, coastal resorts and the biggest town, Kendal. Finally, the edge of the Yorkshire Dales is a beautiful part of Cumbria with country pubs, easy walking, and a thriving arts scene.
