Bowness-on-Windermere is a great place for spending time in the Lake District.
But there is lots more going on than you might first think.
Below are just a sample of the great upcoming events in the local area. They can make your stay with Oakbank House even more enjoyable.
It's pantomime season in Windermere - Oh no it isn't ------- Oh yes it is.
This year the Lakes Players are putting on their production of Snow White. It runs from Wednesday 22nd January until Sunday 26th January. You must book tickets in advance because all shows sell out. The Windermere pantomime is always a great show and a rip roaring time is guaranteed.
As you begin the new year perhaps it's time to improve your work life balance. Visit the Lakes relax in comfort and enjoy stunning scenery and landscape.
Enjoy some walking. It doesn't have to be up a mountain, there are many low level walks providing great views and exhilirating pleasure. From here enjoy views over Lake Windermere from Brantfell and Orrest Head. Stroll along the shoreline of Lake Windermere to Wray Castle, then on to Ambleside.
Finish your day with dinner and a few drinks at a local bar or restaurant in Town.
If you want to have some fun on the water why not enjoy some Kayaking on Ullswater. We recommend using Tall Bloke Adventures for the very best in adventure and fun. Just a short drive to Ullswater taking in some breathtaking scenery on the way over Kirkstone Pass.
Paddling along in easy to manage, very stable, double sea kayaks is a great way to experience the bays and beaches of Ullswater, whilst allowing you one of the best ways to view the fells surrounding beautiful Ullswater. No experience required, just a basic level of fitness. Join Leigh from Tall Bloke Adventures on either a half day taster or a full day ' Paddle & a picnic '.
