Lakeside & Haverthwaite Railway - Carousel


Right on the shore of Windermere
The tiny town of Bowness-on-Windermere - not to be confused with Windermere town, is right on the shore of the largest lake in the Lake District, and England: Windermere. It sprung up after the opening of the railway line from Oxenholme and Kendal to Windermere in 1847 – because it was the nearest accessible point to the lake.

Luxurious hotels on the lakeshore
Today, traditional stone cottages, lakefront pubs, B&Bs – and lots and lots of water sports can be found in Bowness. As you scan the surroundings from the middle of the lake (you can hire easy-to-drive boats from Bowness Bay Marina), you will see the ex-Victorian residences lining the lake shore. A lot of these have now been converted into luxurious hotels.

A great base for exploring The Lake District
Busy year-round, there are regular ferries departing from the tourist town and crossing the large lake. Only a short walk will take you to Orrest Head, the first ‘summit’ Alfred Wainwright visited in his book ‘Lakeland’. Also found in Bowness - see the famous characters from Beatrix Potter’s famous books come to life at The World of Beatrix Potter, a must-see attraction for the whole family.
