Full steam ahead for 50th anniversary celebrations!

The Steamboat Association of Great Britain are celebrating their 50th anniversary next week, with people coming from all over to take part in the celebrations. Boats will begin to arrive at Windemere Jetty from Monday 2nd August, and the week will end with a parade of boats through Lake Windemere on Saturday 7th August, through Bowness Bay and round the back of Belle Isle and then back to the Jetty.

This will be a great display for all the family to watch, with over 50 historic steamboats and many of their owners dressed in period costume for an authentic experience.

We’d encourage everyone to go down and watch the flotilla- it will be a truly memorable sight!

Exciting things happening in or around Bowness!

As restrictions have started to ease over the last couple of months we’ve loved welcoming back guests to experience the beautiful Lake District and all it has to offer. And as things are opening back up we thought we’d highlight just some of the exciting things happening in or around Bowness over the next couple of weeks, so you can start planning your trips!

The Blackwell arts and crafts house (LA23 3JT) – just down the road from us- is celebrating over 150 years of cultural exchange between Britain and Japan, with their exhibition ‘House of the Setting Sun’ an exciting programme that examines the interchange of influence between Japanese design and the British Arts & Crafts Movement.
House of the Setting Sun leads with a new exhibition of rarely or previously unseen objects including an exquisite hand-embroidered 19th-century Kimono, a collection of traditional Japanese ukiyo-e woodblock prints and a fascinating display of 19th- and 20th-century Japanese and British ceramics, including works from the father of British Studio pottery, Bernard Leach.

And up at Brockhole, St John’s Hospice is hosting stunning sunflower displays to come and enjoy for free. Hundreds of hand-crafted steel sunflowers will be placed at Brockhole on Windermere for the month of August before being collected by those who have purchased one. Flowers can be made in dedication of a loved one or purchased as a gift and will be a lasting memory of your summer. To learn more about the sunflowers and the displays please visit
