Bowness Cottages

Luxury Self-Catering Holiday Cottages in Bowness

From racing yachts to adventurous sailboats, vessels of all shapes and sizes have been bobbing on the water at Bowness Bay for over 150 years. The former fishing village and now lakeside resort, Bowness, sits halfway down the mile length on the 11.3 mile eastern shore of the Lake District’s largest body of freshwater, lake Windermere. And just like Bowness’ water residing vessels, we have a super range of Bowness luxury cottages, from glass-fronted, contemporary architect-designed statement properties to sumptuously luxurious, interior-led hideaways.

Bowness is famous for its bustling promenade that has changed little for over 150 years. With its attractive jetties, Victorian ice-cream and ticket kiosks and pretty shingle beach, overlooked by the impressive, manicured frontage of the Belsfield Hotel, telling of an era of Victorian pleasure cruisers and lakeside relaxing.

The old town, around St Martin’s Church, is a medley of winding roads without pavements, and 16th and 17th century buildings, jostling for the breathtaking views that Bowness has become so famous for. Here in Bowness, formal planning goes by the wayside, when there is a view at stake!

When staying in Bowness, enjoy Michelin starred dining along with one of the very finest views in the Lake District at the Holbeck Ghyll, located close to Low Wood Bay, north-eastern Windermere, where you can also enjoy a range of watersports at the Marina here. On a shore where space is a premium, the Michelin starred Samling restaurant, set in 67-acres of grounds, is where old meets new. The 18th century country house and estate, today, is home to a kitchen garden where their global seed exchange programme dictates a world-class menu. The contemporary cruise-liner style dining space, looking down onto manicured English gardens is a perfect blend of old and new.

For evening entertainment within Bowness, there’s the Old Laundry Theatre and the Art Deco Royality Cinema, as well as an upmarket offering of bars and restaurants. The oldest pub in Bowness, known as The Hole in t’ Wall’ (the new Hall Inn), so named after a hole was created to serve the local blacksmith beer as he worked, is a gem for a post-walk refreshment.

BOWNESS GOLD CURATED

Head to the skies for a hot air balloon ride, where it is customary to enjoy a glass of sparkles upon landing. Take your pick of a classic car for the day and enjoy the scenic lakeshore road to Ambleside, or the winding roads east of Bowness into the picturesque Lyth Valley.

Modern abodes have enormous windows and floating wraparound balconies, perched on the second floor drinking in the spectacular scenery.

Within, unique spaces are designed to enjoy the light and scenery. Vaulted ceilings and quirky layouts bring relaxing and socialising areas up high to where the views are. As with the views, standards are very high in our Bowness Gold collection. Generous spaces are filled with chic furnishings and stylish décor. Handmade kitchens, fitted with the very best appliances, and designer bathroom suites make living easy. You’ll find state-of-the-art entertainment, from smart TVs and remote-controlled heating to wireless music and good old fashioned outdoor dining, with BBQs, garden kitchens and pizza ovens for socialising and relaxing at all times of day.
