Millions of sightseers, hikers, foodies, and families make their way to the Lake District every year, yet it remains remarkably serene and unspoiled. Read more

About Windermere

The Lake District is known for its inclement weather and it’s entirely possible to leave your holiday cottage on a sunny morning only to get caught in a shower on the way to the car! The best way to deal with this is to keep your wet weather gear handy and enjoy the beauty of the mist on the lake, the rushing waterfalls, and the sensation of the warm sun when it inevitably breaks through again.

You shouldn’t visit Windermere without going on the water, either in a self-chartered boat or on a scheduled cruise. A hop-on-hop-off ticket on the latter is a remarkably pleasant way to see some of Windermere’s attractions such as the Lakeland Motor Museum, Brockhole Visitor Centre, the Lakeside and Haverthwaite Steam Railway, and the shops and restaurants in Bowness. There are also dozens of walks which start near Windermere piers, including the trail to Orrest Head which has just enough gradient to make it really feel like you’ve earned the views from the top without being overly strenuous.

Getting to Windermere is a simple matter of taking the train from London, Glasgow, Carlisle, or Manchester, or driving via the M6. William Wordsworth wasn’t pulling your leg when he wrote about the beauty of his favourite part of the world. However you get there, you’ll find the journey through the Lake District to Windermere is almost as enjoyable as reaching your destination.
