Autumn’s here!

Sunlight glancing off our window panes. Multiple raindrops a-glisten upon spattered glass. The refreshing coolness of autumnal breezes rustling in bushes, blowing through shushing leaves as they bow earthwards. A brilliant rainbow lordly presiding over immense Lake-rimmed, mountain-edged skies. Look out of our guest house windows, and marvel at the beauteous landscape spread before you. See England’s largest lake from our Bed and Breakfast in Bowness on Windermere.

Bowness on Windermere accommodation

The Langdale Room with a View of Lake Windermere
Enjoy a relaxing cuppa in front of huge triple floor to ceiling bay windows overlooking Lake Windermere and the fells in The Langdale bedroom.

There is much to see, do, and enjoy in our beautiful UNESCO National Park. Climb a fell or fells. Walk by lakes and tarns against backdrops of incredible loveliness. Be mesmerised by the sleepy flow of trickling streams, ebullient rivers, or cascading waters that bring life and verve to this pulchritudinous county.

The small waterfall at Millerground
The small waterfall at Millerground is very picturesque. It is less than a mile’s distance from Blenheim Lodge, and thus eminently accessible from our Bowness on Windermere guest house.

Look about you and observe the Lake District’s famous Herdwicks, the sheep which have shaped its landscape. If you are interested in God’s creatures, why not enjoy a day out walking with llamas or hybrid wolves, take in the powerful splendour of birds of prey as they demonstrate their prowess at Muncaster Castle, or consider a visit to the Lakes Aquarium? Alternatively, try working with sheepdogs as they round their sheep, or something tamer, such as feeding the ducks, geese, and swans at Bowness Bay? Blenheim Lodge is only five minutes’ walk from Windermere’s shore.

Bowness bay
Birds at Bowness Bay flock to visitors dispensing food by Bowness Pier.

It is not all scenery of course, although this is very much a part of the Lake District National Park. Consider its history: the Romans who built High Street, a Roman road which has given its name to the the fell upon which it was built. Festivals were held here!

Think of writers and poets, such as Beatrix Potter and William Wordsworth. Visit their homes; consider this amazing place they lived in and how their observations of life in the Lake District influenced their works. Potter’s legacy to this part of the world cannot be overestimated: she, along with Canon Hardwicke Drummond Rawnsley, was one of the three founding members of the National Trust, to which she bequeathed her estate and farms. Her iconic creations, Peter Rabbit and friends, continue to romp through generations of children’s and adults’ imaginations.

Peter Rabbit and Friends were Beatrix Potter’s inspired creations. Their appeal continues to this day, more than 150 years since she introduced them to the world. (Photo courtesy of
