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.
Everything at Windermere Jetty links back to the lake. Our lakeshore café offers spectacular views (whatever the weather), heritage boats and the conservation workshop supply the smells, sounds and sights of life on the lake, and our exhibitions tell the many stories of south Lakeland’s boats, builders, owners and users.
The first Cumbria Dark Skies Festival takes place on Friday 21st to Sunday 23rd February 2020
There is an exciting array of events across the area and you'll find there's something for everyone! The programme is delivered in partnership with Cumbria Tourism, The Lake District National Park and Forestry England. Many events are free, some incur a small fee.
Events include stargazing, twilight walks, workshops, indoor planetarium and more.
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 '.
