The Bowness - Down By The Lake Treasure Trail starts at:

Glebe Road
LA23 3HJ

Please Note:

The route follows footpaths throughout with obvious step-free alternatives to any steps involved. There are two Clues which require leaving the path to explore flat grassy areas.

Bring your four-legged friends along to stretch their legs too! The first section is great for stretching the legs, the last section will require a shorter lead as you explore the busier lakeside stretch.

For parking, there are a number of free parking spaces all along Glebe Road, where the Pay & Display Car Parks are located. The free spaces fill up early and are limited to 2 hours between Easter and October.

Toilets can be found at the start / finish point and in the car park near Clue 06. Our top lakeside picnic spot is around Clue 10, with several benches with great views along the path just before too. The route passes several snack and refreshment opportunities, mostly between Clue 12 and the end of the Trail, so stock up on snacks and supplies before you start if you’re planning a picnic, or head into Bowness town for more pub and café options at the end of the Trail.

Why not make a day of it – Windermere is a magnificent lake so allow extra time to take a boat trip or just enjoy the lakeside views and have a paddle! Or head into Bowness itself – explore on your own or embark on a treasure hunt around the town on the Bowness on Windermere Treasure Trail!
