About Dintake Boathouse

Dintake Boathouse is Lake District luxury at its finest. Not only does the property offer a superior standard of comfort for couples or solo adventurers, but its enviable location on the water's edge with jetty provides unrivalled views of Winderemere that will elevate your Lake District holiday from impressive to sublime. People visit the Lakes for the scenery, and this one-bedroom boathouse delivers it by the boat-load! Bowness is only a few miles away, and easily accessible by car or bike, providing the perfect compromise between peace and privacy and the convenience of being close to shops and other amenities.

Whether you're a regular visitor to the Lake District or this is your first time in the national park, Bowness is ideal. It has a wealth of excellent places to eat and drink from upmarket wine bars to relaxed pubs. There is a raft of independent boutiques and familiar High Street stores, as well as a wide variety of specialist shops. There are also homewares and interior stores, galleries showcasing work from local artists, and a tasty collection of delis and food shops. Blackwell and the newly launched £20m Windermere Jetty Museum is also a popular attraction. Bowness is also the place to arrange a sightseeing boat trip or hire a boat, paddleboard or a kayak to explore on your own. Staying so close to Bowness means that all of this is practically on the doorstep.

Bowness and the area around Dintake Boathouse has something for everyone. In addition to sailing and kayaking, Windermere is one of only three lakes in the national park that is open for public fishing. The 45-mile Windermere Way encompasses the circumference of the lake, while the surrounding hills and countryside have endless miles of footpaths leading to one breathtaking view after another. Orrest Head is a particular favourite as it's a relatively easy walk with spectacular views. Cycling and mountain biking are also popular ways to enjoy the landscape. There are excellent off-road trails including those in Grizedale Forest and along the lakeshore to Wray Castle. Day trips can include sightseeing in Ambleside and Grasmere or a day at the seaside at Grange-over-Sands.

It doesn't matter what time of the year you visit, a stay in Dintake Boathouse will restore your emotional balance, and give you time to connect with the things you love doing and the person you love doing them with.
