What must I see in Windermere?

The obvious draw is, of course, the magnificent lake which stretches for a whopping ten miles and which is home to thousands of boats, yachts and canoes. Take a leisurely ride on one of the pleasure cruisers and enjoy a local ice-cream as you admire the views. Learn how to sail or to canoe, or even try your hand at wild swimming or paddleboarding. Visitors can enjoy plenty of other activities on-land too; explore the many cycling and walking routes, try horse-riding or join one of the many organised hiking, caving or fell-running groups in Grizedale Forest. The adventure playground of Brockhole is a great visit for families with its boating lake, indoor caving, Crazy Bug driving, landscaped gardens and an excellent cafe. Enjoy a picnic and kayaking at Fell Foot Park next to the lake, or see the UK's biggest collection of freshwater fish at the award-winning Lakeside Aquarium. Steam enthusiasts will enjoy taking a trip on the Lakeside and Haverthwaite Railway and the World of Beatrix Potter is a must for fans of the famous author. Don't forget to stop for a cream tea at one of the many local cafes dotted around Windermere, or a hearty meal at one of the gastropubs.

Where should I stay in Windermere?

When booking a quality hotel Windermere offers plenty of options, from lakeside spa accommodations through to cosy B'n'Bs in ancient cottages. Windermere town is about a mile away from the lake and Bowness-on-Windermere is the part right on the lakeshore itself.  This part of the world is designed to accommodate tourists and you'll find cheap hotels all across the town and in walking distance of the lake. Ambleside is located at the north of the lake and it also has plenty of great hotel deals, as does Newby Bridge, which is one the northern tip of the lake. Just remember to book a hotel well in advance if you are planning to travel during peak season or when there is a large event on (this part of the world has a lot of sport, leisure and cultural festivals!) as it can be very busy and availability becomes limited. The eDreams newsletter will send you tailored details of all hotel deals and offers as they go live.
