Bowood House & Gardens will be hosting their annual duathlon. The route takes in the beautiful scenery around Bowood Lake, the Cascade waterfall, and the Doric Temple. Bowood House is in Calne, Wiltshire near the history and beautiful city of Bath.
Bowood has been the Lansdowne family home for over 250 years. Bowood House lies in the centre of a beautiful rolling landscape next to a large lake – all created by ‘Capability’ Brown back in the 1760s.
More recently added to this two thousand acre oasis has been an amazing adventure playground, championship golf course and boutique hotel. Lord Lansdowne’s vision, over the past forty years, has been to harness Bowood’s natural assets whilst preserving its unique heritage by creating something that interests and excites all tastes and ages.
