The perfect Lakeland bolt-hole! Set right in the midst of all that Bowness has to offer, this pretty 2nd floor (top floor) apartment benefits from picture-perfect views of Lake Windermere in the distance and the surrounding Lakeland fells including Claife Heights. With on-site parking and a fresh, modern decor throughout, Far Views is within just a few minutes walk of the lake itself. The Lake District -- England's largest national park -- won UNESCO World Heritage Status on 9 July, 2017...The perfect Lakeland bolt-hole!

Great 1 bedroom apartment in the centre of Bowness. Electric heaters, although we didn't need them. Good shower. Full kitchen, although we only used the grill. On 3rd floor and no lift, so you need to be reasonably fit. Narrow external stairs so can be...More

A lovely place, well equipped and just a few minutes' stroll to the lake. Being on the second floor was good because of the views and we could leave the windows open in the hot weather. A lamp in the sitting room would have been...More

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 provides a...
Getting around
Getting around is really easy as you can travel by car, bus, train and even boat! There are lots of scenic bus routes that pick up in Bowness (some are open top buses) and Winderemere train station is only 2kms away. Several boats, steamers and ferries cross the Lake and the main marina is only a 5 minute walk away.
