    Excellent attraction, with informative exhibits. Very basic, but absolutely does the job. The garden was excellent. On the pricy side with some add-ons for what it is but highly recommended

    From what I was hoping for the house was so much more and so I was in no way disappointed!! A stunning example of arts and crafts house with stunning views . The story behind the house was amazing and know it affected so many people is just wonderful. A hidden treasure

    Extraordinary photos of the Lakes Region. Landscape and wildlife, sunlight and sky. So glad I didn’t miss this gallery of Matt Muttall photography!

    This is a chain ferry connecting the two sides of the long, thin Lake Windermere and can save you 20 minutes or more getting to the other side, depending on how busy it might be.

    Although it was August, we had no queue and got onto the boat after only the wait for it to return from the other side. If you had bad luck you might need to wait for several crossings.

    On the return we drove round the south side of the lake just to see different scenery.

    Given the cost I don't think you're saving a lot of money or time but it's fun to go on a little ferry like this to experience the view from the middle of the lake.

    Well worth a climb the views are spectacular and it’s very quiet not as touristy as some climbs in Bowness a little if the Beaton Track

    Our first visit and we found it a very friendly space which worked very well in the Round. The play, a new one by Alan Ayckbourn, was very entertaining and superbly acted by all.

    My wife and myself are currently holidaying in the Lake District and earlier today we visited the lovely St Martin’s Church in Bowness.

    It is easy to find - short walk from the waterfront - and both the gardens and church itself are well worth a short visit.

    We were there for Remeberance Sunday and it was very moving. Beautiful church. It was overflowing with people but as visitors we were made to feel welcome

    I played Windermere, while on holiday in the Lake District. It’s a great course with excellent views of the Lake District mountains as you go round the course. One of a few course to have no bunkers! The course was in great condition despite recent very wet weather, which did result in two of the holes being closed due to being waterlogged. But even with the hole closures, I enjoyed a great round of golf and the weather managed to stay dry. Staff also very friendly and helpful. Definitely worth playing if you’re visiting these parts.

    We had a great time doing this escape room. The guy was really helpful and friendly and gave us a gentle nudge if we needed it. Lots of laughs and we escaped!
