Bowness cottages

Bowness cottages

Bowness sits midway along Windermere’s eastern shore and is one of the most popular tourist spots in the Lake District. A long promenade skirts the lake providing views over the busy little pleasure harbour, lake, and surrounding fells. The town is busy throughout the year with visitors coming to enjoy the lake for sailing and watersports, or just to relax and enjoy the atmosphere of the area and the town’s delightful setting. Bowness, once a small fishing village, rapidly developed as a bustling tourist destination once the railway came to Windermere in the 19th century.  The Victorian influence can be seen everywhere – in the late 19th century, wealthy businessmen from Lancashire built large residences overlooking the lake, and many of these have now been converted into hotels. Today, steamers and boats still ply Windermere, the largest of the lakes in Cumbria.
