Bowness on Windermere, Lake District National Park of England

Day 10 P.M

Hill Top was lovely and it didn’t stop there. We continued our journey to Fell Foot Park on the shore of Lake Windermere for a quick picnic before heading to the next highlight at Bowness on Windemere with the family.

Easy access to the water makes picnic far more fun to families with children. We saw children paddling happily in the water while we were feeding the swans with little pieces of breads by the lake shore.

After the quick picnic, we took a slow walk back to the car to our next destination, Bowness on Windermere. Lake Windermere is the largest natural lake in England covering up to an area of 14.73 km². It is a long and narrow lake surrounded by mountainous area and also small towns. Bowness is one of the famous ones.

Bowness of Windermere is a tourist honeypot. It offers cruises from Bowness Bay port to the north (Ambleside) and to the south (Fell Foot). Besides, The World of Beatrix Potter is also located at this town. In this town, you may also find shops offering unique arts, coffee and also local products.
