Lake District July 2017 - Bowness & Claife Heights

Friday was our last full day in the Lake District.  From the 'back gate' of the campsite you can wander to the car/foot passenger ferry across Windermere to Hawkshead.  We took the ferry as foot passengers (50p each, each way - bargain!) and walked up to the little National Trust place of Claife Viewing Station where there is a stone built look-out with lovely stained glass window surrounds.  The views are stunning.

After catching the little ferry back across to Bowness we walked into town via Cockshott Point for our last wander.

That evening we walked back into Bowness to meet up with some of my colleagues and customers from Head Office (based in Blackburn).  A few of them had booked into a B&B in Windermere so we could have a catch up (as we live so far away!).  We had a few drinks (!) in a few pubs and a lovely meal in the Albert Hotel before retreating back to Bessy.
