A fantastic Lake District location

Lake Windermere, home of the Cranleigh Hotel, seen from the mountains

The Cranleigh boutique hotel nestles in the beautiful lakeside town of Bowness-on-Windermere, just moments away from the lake shore and stunning mountain views.

Bowness is the perfect place for a Lake District getaway, with its cosmopolitan mix of boutiques, coffee shops, restaurants, cinema and theatre.

Just a mile away is the charming town of Windermere, a quaint blend of modern and traditional shops, where there’s so much more to explore.

Our Lake District boutique hotel offers a stylish and intimate setting for romantic weekends and long, luxurious stays at any time of year. What’s more, our fantastic location in Bowness will help you make the most of each and every moment.

In summer, stroll along the lake shore and enjoy a chilled glass of wine, delicious lunch or champagne afternoon tea at one of the fantastic bistros, chic cafes or fine dining restaurants in Bowness and Windermere.

By far the best way to enjoy Lake Windermere is from the water, and the steamer pier is just a short stroll from The Cranleigh. On board, you can sit back and take in breathtaking views of the world-famous Lake District fells, secluded bays, wooded islands and mirror-smooth lake waters.

Crisp winter days are ideal for browsing the fashion boutiques, gift shops and art galleries of these two neighbouring towns, then warming up with hot chocolate by a crackling open fire in a cosy pub or café. You can shop to your heart’s content in Bowness and Windermere, knowing you have the most luxurious surroundings to unwind in back at our boutique hotel.
