Holiday cottages in Bowness On Windermere, Cumbria

Located on the banks of Windermere, England’s largest lake, the town of Bowness-on-Windermere is ideally situated to act as a tourist magnet for visitors to the area who are looking for relaxation, rest and recreation.

Windermere is one of the many lakes of the Lake District, one of the most beautiful regions of the UK. Windermere’s water-sports facilities and events are renowned, and the town of Bowness-on-Windermere serves the visitors to the area in style. Everything connected with water-sports and other Lake District recreational activities can be bought in the specialist shops and several types of accommodation are available in and around the town.

Holiday cottage accommodation is especially popular in this area. Rented UK cottages tend to be of pleasingly high quality, and nowhere is this more true than in this part of the UK. A stay in a cosy cottage provides you with all the comforts of home and gives you the independence that hotels and bed & breakfast establishments lack. Cottages for rent are available in many areas around the lake and other rental property options are also available.

If you’re looking for cottages to rent, or other self catering accommodation always try to book in advance to get the best prices. Prices also tend to be lower in the low seasons. Autumn is quite popular because not only are discounts available, but it’s the time of year when the Lake District is at its most beautiful. The summer heat may have cooled, but the autumn leaves of the nearby forests make up for that inconvenience with a spectacular show of colour.

Although Windermere is the main attraction, the town of Bowness-on-Windermere is worth exploring too. It’s a quiet and tidy town with some historic buildings such as the 15th century parish church of St Martin.

Access to Bowness-on-Windermere for drivers is easy. Windermere is so famous that there are plenty of sign posts to the lake, whichever direction you’re coming from. The town of Bowness-on-Windermere is situated on the south bank of the lake. Don’t confuse it with the adjoining town of Windermere, which is a different town also on the banks of the lake.
