Lake Windermere is a special place, home to some of the most beautiful natural geography in the world. While you can enjoy it all from the lakeside, if you want to experience some unique, breathtaking views of the Lake District, the only option is to get out onto the lake itself. Fortunately, there are plenty of ways to take to the water.
For more than 150 years, visitors have been enjoying regular cruises up and down the 10.5 mile lake. Windermere Lake Cruises are keeping the business going and it remains one of Windermere's most popular attractions. A range of cruises are available to suit every need, from short circular cruises, for a quick jaunt, to full days out, giving you the opportunity to enjoy some of the shoreside diversions. For those who would like to take advantage of Windermere's plentiful cycling and walking trails, Windermere Lake Cruises run 'Bike Boats' and 'Walkers Tickets', complete with recommended routes.
If you want to explore the lake yourself, self-drive motor boats are available for hire, or, if you're looking for more of a workout, rowing boats are a popular option. Both give you the chance to make your own Lake District discoveries.
All of these can be accessed from Bowness bay, just a short drive or an easy walk down from the Hawksmoor Lakeland Guesthouse. Take a relaxing trip out on the lake then head back to our luxury Lake District B and B for a perfect weekend retreat.
