Bowness is a traditional Lakeland town situated about halfway up the lake's eastern shore with attractions such as The World of Beatrix Potter and the Windermere Jetty (Museum of Boats, Steam and Stories). In a stunning setting, with a relaxed and laid-back atmosphere, this town is the perfect sample of the Lake District at its best, with excellent views of the northern fells.

For more of an uphill leg stretch, nearby Gummers How is a lovely little hill that offers the perfect vantage point for taking in the panoramas of Windermere, the steam from the Lakeside and Haverthwaite Railway, and the River Leven which flows into the southern end of the lake from Newby Bridge and beyond.

The walk to High Dam begins opposite the Lakeside Hotel and doesn't require any uphill climbing. It's a lovely route that passes through woodlands, making it an ideal choice for a brief walk. Furthermore, it isn't too far from Buck Yeats.
