Tuesday / Area Coach to Bowness on Windermere on Tuesday, September 5th

The next Area coach will be to Bowness on Windermere on Tuesday, 5th September
Do please join us on our next trip to Bowness on Lake Windermere. The venue is likely to be very popular so you are advised to book early.
Bowness and Windermere are situated right in the heart of the English Lake District on the eastern shore of Lake Windermere. The town features a wealth of visitor attractions.

The lakeshore in Bowness is a particular favourite with families, providing clean family friendly shingle beaches and surrounded by parks, located just a short way from the town's many and varied local shops. Visitors can take a leisurely boat trip around the lake from Bowness pier or take the car ferry across the lake to visit Hawkshead and Sawrey on the other side.

There will be two walks of different lengths, and you are also very welcome to join us on the coach for a day out if you don't want to walk. The longer walk is a linear from Bowston to Bowness via the Dales Way, initially by the River Kent. The shorter walk is around Bowness with lovely lakeside views.

The last venue of the year will be in October to Ruthin in Denbighshire on October 10th.

To book please ring or text Sheila Sheedy on 07519 810331
Note: please do not leave a voicemail message as it costs us to retrieve it.

About the coach
Welcome to the home of the Area Ramblers coach. We run a coach every four weeks, picking up in Stretton, Stockton Heath and Culcheth travelling far and wide to areas that offer superb scenery and fine walking. Once there, we offer 2 grades of walks, ranging from a leisurely/moderate one of about 6/7 miles duration to a harder moderate walk of 8-9 miles with up to 1500ft of ascent. You will need to bring boots, waterproof clothing (just in case!) and a packed lunch with a drink.
You'll have time for refreshments before we set off back home at 17.00 hours, and you'll even be able to have a sleep on the way back as you won't be doing the driving! We are a friendly,fun and welcoming group and would love it if you could join us. Our full programme is shown below and at the bottom of the page you can see who is leading each of the walks.
To book, or for further details, please text Sheila Sheedy on 07519 810331 or click here to send her an e-mail. Note: please do not leave a voicemail message as it costs us to retrieve it.
