The Westbourne Hotel, Windermere

Westbourne Windermere

Bowness, on the shore of Windermere, is the perfect starting point for your Lake District holiday. For uninterrupted views of the mountains, bays and wooded islands, take to the water on board Windermere Lake Cruises. Then, how about coffee and cakes before hitting the individual shops and boutiques of Bowness?

Just a couple of miles away you’ll find Blackwell, the Arts and Crafts House. Its beautiful interiors, craft shop and tea room are well worth visiting. Further afield in Coniston village, you can discover speed ace Donald Campbell’s story at the Ruskin Museum and take a trip on the elegant steam yacht Gondola on Coniston Water. Hawkshead, one of the quaintest Lakeland villages, is also too good to miss, with its cosy, traditional pubs and Beatrix Potter Gallery.

Wherever you go, there’s a wealth of places to eat and drink. For lunch, drinks or dinner, The Angel Inn in Bowness has a relaxed yet stylish feel. Or try The Albert, a smart Bowness pub serving good food and drink. Just a few miles away in Ambleside, you can enjoy a complete night out at Zeffirellis pizzeria, café bar and cinema. And for an unforgettable treat to round off your holiday, book afternoon tea for two at the world-famous Miller Howe hotel.
