Lake Windermere is a short walk down the hill from us at Bowness-on-Windermere. There are regular buses during the day and a plentiful supply of reasonably priced taxis.

There is something for everyone in the beautiful surrounding area. Fell Walking and Water-based activities are very popular, there are walks on the level too. The Lake District is equally suitable for visitors who just want a peaceful break or to saunter around the interesting and diverse shops. Windermere and Bowness together offer over 35 restaurants and cafes with cuisine and prices to suit every taste and pocket. Please ask if you have any special requests.

The Lake District is extremely beautiful and popular setting for Weddings and Celebrations. We will be pleased to help with any special arrangements and to book tours for you, to make your stay more memorable.


We hope to see you here in the near future,


Best Wishes

Jean & Dave
