Skyfall sits in a pleasantly peaceful spot, a short drive from Bowness and Lake Windermere. Walks abound in the surrounding area... wander quiet country lanes, admire the damson blossom in springtime, or seek out challenging long routes in the wider Lake District. Set in private grounds, many types of wildlife including pheasant, grouse, deer and rabbits can be seen. There is the use of an all weather tennis court (rackets provided), putting green and well maintained lawns and garden.
On the eastern shores of Lake Windermere, Bowness is a sophisticated Lakeland village with so much to explore and enjoy. Stroll to the lake shore to hire a row boat or power boat, or take an elegant cruise on one of the Lake Windermere steamers. Windermere Lake Cruises depart regularly to Ambleside and Lakeside; a wonderful way to explore without even using your car.
There are numerous excellent restaurants in Bowness village, all within walking distance of Skyfall, including champagne bars; contemporary wine bars; traditional pubs; and a range of great British and international cuisine. There is something for everyone, both in the village centre and the surrounding countryside, offering a full range of choice from traditional Lakeland pubs to fine dining. Within the Windermere Marina, less than a mile away, is The Boathouse Bar & Restaurant. Eating out in Cumbria has never been better, and now there is a gem on our door step! Enjoy one of the two fantastic south facing terraces on those lazy summer days, spend a few hours in the bar or book a table in the first floor restaurant for something a little more special or of course enjoy the comfort of your own accommodation back at your very own lakeside boathouse.
Windermere Golf Club is just outside Bowness village, on the way to the Lyth Valley. This area is also renowned for gentle but very scenic walking, with a wealth of acclaimed Lake District country pubs to choose from at the end of the day.
Close to the village, you'll find Blackwell, The Arts and Crafts House. This impressive property takes a stunning position overlooking Lake Windermere, and has a range of interesting exhibitions. Join the A591 to Ambleside and Grasmere, and you can explore the homes of famous Lake District poet, William Wordsworth.
Another great idea is to take the car-ferry crossing over Lake Windermere from Bowness, to visit the former home of Beatrix Potter in Near Sawrey, and the nearby picturesque village of Hawkshead.
