    Visiting Bowness in November was a great idea.

    Visiting Bowness in November was a great idea. I have been in the summer before and it is so busy it is unpleasant and parking is difficult. I would advise visitors to choose a hotel with private parking - preferably free, some charge for parking - leave a car there and walk to town or to the lakeside. Also be aware that Bowness is built on a steep hill and not all roads have pavements.

    The town and area around Bowness are beautiful.

    The town and area around Bowness are beautiful. We were able to walk and visit an amazing Arts and Crafts house and then see a very undeveloped part of the lake shore on foot. The ferry across the lake was nearby and the walk to Hill Top to see Beatrix Potter's house was beautiful and well signed. We had good meals in a pub and bistro near to Fairfield House so not needing to use the car made the location great for us.

    Stayed 3 nights here which we thought was a touch too long.

    Stayed 3 nights here which we thought was a touch too long. 1 night would have been perfect then move onto Ambleside. Amazing restaurant and bar called Eazy Breeze which you should definitely go to if you are having a night in Bowness on Windermere

    The hotel completely exceeded our expectations. When we arrived, we were greeted by Nick who added so many lovely extras to the place. The beds are extremely comfy and every detail has been well thought of. The hotel itself is in a brilliant location in the heart of Bowness, a 2 minute walk to all the pubs and local shops.
