Blenheim Lodge is situated on a fell top in Bowness-on-Windermere, in the heart of the English Lake District. Bowness village itself sits on the banks of Lake Windermere, an easy stroll from our Bed and Breakfast Guest House. As today has been such a beautiful day lit up with lovely Autumn sunshine, I thought I would share some lovely photos of our local lake with you.
Tony Richards is an excellent photographer and here is one of the photos he snapped today.
One of my favourites photos of Lake Windermere is another autumnal one, this time taken by a guest from one of our bedrooms at Blenheim Lodge. (We enjoy spectacular views of Lake Windermere and the fells from our guest and public rooms at our B&B.)
Another pretty photo of Lake Windermere at sunset was given to us by some visitors from Hong Kong. Lake Windermere stretches from Lakeside to Waterhead. The photo below shows the sun setting over Waterhead.
Passenger ferries from Bowness-on-Windermere ply the waters of Windermere to Waterhead, near Ambleside. Guests can enjoy leisurely passenger cruises between various points of Lake Windermere, including Lakeside and Ferry House. There are more sailing routes available during peak holiday periods.
Besides the passenger ferries and small boating craft available for hire on Lake Windermere, there is also a cable car ferry which spans Ferry Nab and Ferry House. Located 0.75 mile from our guest house, Blenheim Lodge, this is a very useful service for drivers who wish to cut short the 14-15-mile circular road route between opposite banks of the Lake.
If visitors have only a short weekend to visit the Lakes, there is more than enough to see and do around Lake Windermere and its nearby towns and villages. At Blenheim Lodge, we have some late availability for rooms this weekend and coming weeks, so if you are looking for Bed and Breakfast accommodation in the Lake District, please do contact us for special rates.
