The view from Brantfell
Just a short 15 minute walk from Fairfield House is the top of Brantfell. You get a 360 degree view of the surrounding area with views to both ends of lake Windermere. If you find yourself with an hour or two to spare, this view is well worth the effort. Don’t forget your camera.
Rowing Boats
Enjoy a morning or afternoon travelling the lake under your own steam! There’s no better way to exercise, enjoy the fresh air and take in the spectacular views of the hills and shoreline. The boats are available to hire from the wooden huts to the right of Bowness promenade from the beginning of April to the end of October.

There are so many beautiful, short and long walks around the local area that we just can’t begin to list them here but the top 20 are perfectly listed for you here, with handy maps, distances and times to help you decide;
Windermere Jetty
A newly created museum of internationally important boats including steam launches, sailing yachts and motor boats. There is a great lakeside café here with stunning views out over the lake. Weather permitting you can sit on the tables by the lake side.
