We are just outside Bowness, well away from the bustle but only a mile from the centre.  Our guests usually leave their cars here in our car park and walk in but there is a very good, moderately priced taxi service if you prefer.

Situated at the top of Longtail Hill we are 500yards from the Lake, the Marina and Hawkshead Car Ferry, and close to the renowned Fayrer Garden, Lindeth Howe, Lindeth Fell and Linthwaite House.

To reach us you can turn off the M6 at junction 36 and follow the A590, then A591, signed for South Lakes and Windermere.  At the large roundabout take the first turn off onto the B5284 signed Hawkshead via
the Ferry, and follow the pleasant country road for about ten minutes, passing the Sun Inn, the Wild Boar, and Windermere Golf Club.  You will then descend a long hill towards the lake, and Fair Rigg is on your left just before the T junction at the bottom.

If you are coming from Windermere, head to Bowness, at the mini roundabout bear left, down towards the lake, and take the first turning off left immediately after the first parade of shops onto Kendal Road. Continue for about 1/2mile and you will see Fair Rigg on your left.  If you find that you are driving along the lake front you will have missed the turn off but don’t worry just stay on this road, continue past the turning to the Ferry then bear left up Longtail Hill.  At the top, turn left and immediately right, then immediately right again into our car park.

Any problems please just ring us.
