Mini guide to Windermere


The quaint Lake District village of Windermere is set on a hillside about a mile away from the famous lake of the same name. Windermere almost merges with another pretty village called Bowness with the railway station being at Windermere and buses running down to Bowness every few minutes.

Both Windermere and Bowness have a range of shops and restaurants to rival much bigger towns. The stunning 10 mile lake is the longest in England and offers a wide variety of summer recreation including cruises, fishing, boating, sailing and scuba diving. Boats of all descriptions can be hired at Bowness or you can take a steamer around the lake for a wonderful afternoon, viewing the distant fells reflected in the water.

Windermere is not the in heart of the mountains but no where in the Lakes is far away. A car ferry takes you across to the beautiful and much quieter southern fells past Hawkeshead and on to Coniston Water, through Nether Sawrey, home of Beatrix Potter. A short drive north takes you to Ambleside, now a popular draw for shoppers seeking new boots, cagouls or just a cup of tea. There you will find the smallest house in Britain, the Bridge house, one of many National Trust properties open to explore in the area.

There is a excellent road network that connects Cumbria and the Lake District from the south and north of the county with the M6 motorway being the central link, with connections onto the A66 that takes you into the northern area of the Lake District and onto to the coast. Regular trains run from London, Birmingham, Manchester and Glasgow to Oxenholme [close to Kendal] then a short train journey (20 minutes) takes you onto Windermere station.
