Very clean and well equipped, in a perfect location for shops, the lake and buses. We had one very wet afternoon and went to the very quirky retro cinema next door.

About the neighbourhood
Bowness-on-Windermere is one of the most popular locations in the Lake District. Situated on the banks of Lake Windermere and about halfway down the lake, a long promenade runs beside it with views of the busy harbour where pleasure cruisers arrive and depart taking visitors up and down the lake.

The town has a vibrant, bustling atmosphere, especially in the summer months and a superb lakeside setting with lovely views across and down Lake Windermere. A car ferry runs to the far side of the lake taking visitors to Sawrey and Hawkshead or you can take a trip on one of the steamers north to Ambleside or south to Lakeside.

There is plenty to see and do including the Beatrix Potter Exhibition and Steamboat Museum, as well as an 18 hole 'pitch and put' and sailing marinas. Bowness pr...
