The towns of Windermere and Bowness are at the heart of the Lake District and have been a magnet for visitors for centuries. With easy access to the lakeshore and panoramic views of the lake and surrounding fells, it’s easy to see why the area is so popular. Access to the lake is actually made 1 mile further from Windermere town centre at Bowness-On-Windermere.
