    At the time of writing, the ferry (an otherwise wonderful way to start or end a trip) is out of action, likely until October 2018. Windermere Lake Cruises is offering a pedestrian service, and has stated it will "operate a special Bike friendly vessel between Bowness and Ferry House on days when availability allows" in the mean time from Wray Castle and Brock Hole. They advise calling ahead to check on 015394 43360. At present (August 2018) it's operating half-hourly from 10:15 until 16:30.

    1 GBP per Cyclist, 0,5 GBP per Pedestrian. Nice way to reach the shore on the other side of Windermere from Bowness.
