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.
