The station which serves the lovely resort town of Bowness-on-Windermere is at the opposite end of the town to the lakeside and the pier which the cruise boats depart from.
Four local bus routes provide the connection down to the shore of Windermere; the station is a 20-40 min uphill walk from the heart of the town.
Though when heading back to the station, carefully check the bus timetables, as the final departures can be in the early evening.
Bus routes/lines 505, 555 and 599 link the station with Ambleside and routes 555 and 599 carry on to Grasmere.~
Route 505 also goes to/from Coniston and route/line 508 links Windermere station to Ullswater.
