About

Situated in the heart of Bowness-on-Windermere, the Royal Oak has been welcoming guests for over 200 years.

The current owners took over in February of 1995, and have been running this cosy, traditional pub ever since.


The Dales Way Walk

The Dales Way Walk is an 80-mile walk from Ilkley (West Yorkshire) to Bowness-on-Windermere, through the heart of the Yorkshire Dales and ending at the shore of England’s largest and most spectacular lake. Since 1996, the Royal Oak has been the official finishing pub for the Dales Way.
