Your exploration will lead you to Bowness's Lake shore, where you can hire a row boat or power boat, or take an elegant cruise on one of the Windermere steamers; a wonderful way to explore without even using your car. There are several excellent restaurants in Bowness village, also plenty of traditional Lakeland pubs, both in the village centre and the surrounding countryside. A little further to visit the former home of Beatrix Potter in Near Sawrey, and then the cobbled village of Hawkshead with cobbled streets and more of those tempting eateries.
Why not visit the Lyth Valley? This quiet and less popular corner of the Lake District is also renowned for gentle but very scenic walking, with a wealth of acclaimed Lake District country pubs to choose from as a reward for your efforts.
Close to the village, you'll find Blackwell, The Arts and Crafts House. This impressive property takes a stunning position overlooking Windermere, and has a range of interesting exhibitions.
