Bowness-on-Windermere – Very British country life
“Autumn is a great time for going on long walks. You can get the best views over the colourful landscape from Orrest Head – a short walk from Bowness-on-Windermere. Or take the ferry across Lake Windermere and climb up to the Claife Heights, where spectacular views over the lakes await and picturesque riverside paths invite you to take a wander.”
Right on the doorstep of your holiday apartment in Bowness-on-Windermere, there is a unique natural paradise: The Lake District, Great Britain's biggest national park, is ideal for hiking and exploring. In the typically British small town of Bowness, local specialities are served in the many restaurants.
Windermere is England's largest lake. The holiday apartments in the Hapimag Resort Bowness-on-Windermere, built in the local cottage style, are located near the lake. Discover the breathtaking lake scenery and the gentle hills of the Lake District National Park on long walks and hikes through unspoilt natural countryside. Experience the glistening, deep-blue lake at all times of day, wander through great fields, breathe in the pure air and the fragrance of damp grass and moss. On the magnificent greens of the local golf courses, playing golf is a special pleasure. If you want things more leisurely, you can go on boat trips on the numerous lakes, or take a trip on the Lakeside & Haverthwaite steam railway, and you will feel like you're back in the good old days of Queen Victoria – an unforgettable experience for young and old. The influence of that period lives on in the picturesque little town of Bowness, where in the evening you can go for a leisurely stroll and taste local specialities, such as Cumberland sausages and sticky toffee pudding. Then wind down the day over a pint of real ale in a cosy pub. Or you can also enjoy the evening in the resort in Bowness-on-Windermere. In the neighbouring Burnside Hotel, the restaurant, café and bar, as well as the entire wellness facilities, are available for your use.
