The famous Dales Way walk is a long distance footpath of around 80 miles running from the market town of Ilkley to the popular tourist village of Bowness. As the name suggests, Dales Way Cottage, the footpath passes the door of the property so is an ideal for those who have made the historic journey. Nestling at the end of a small row, Dales Way Cottage fronts onto Brantfell and is a five minute stroll down hill to popular Bowness, teeming with shops, bars and restaurants. Bowness has plenty of activities for all the family including cinema, Beatrix Potter exhibition and a host of waterborne activities. Dales way Cottage is blessed with many original features including a recently exposed stone wall housing the wood burning stove. Characterful beams have been proudly restored and displayed along with several modern day additions to ensure your comfort.

About the local area

Bowness-on-Windermere is one of the most popular locations in the Lake District. Situated midway down Lake Windermere, a long promenade skirts the lake with views over a busy harbour where pleasure cruisers arrive and depart taking visitors up and down the lake.

The town has a vibrant, bustling atmosphere, especially in the summer months and a superb lakeside setting with lovely views across and down the lake. A car ferry runs to the far side of the lake taking visitors to Sawrey and Hawkshead or you can take a trip on one of the steamers north to Ambleside or south to Lakeside.

There is plenty to see and do including the Beatrix Potter Exhibition and Steamboat Museum, as well as an 18 hole `pitch and put' and sailing marinas. Bowness provides a good selection of pubs, cafes and restaurants as well as a wide range of shops, all within easy reach.
