Book a Windermere cottage for spectacular surroundings and endless attractions - ideal for a romantic break or fun-filled family holiday at any time of the year.
The elegant Victorian town of Windermere sits at the heart of the National Park and is a major tourist centre for lovers of water sports, walking and climbing. And the town has everything you need, including all kinds of shops and an array of welcoming cafes, restaurants and pubs.
Just a mile from town is Lake Windermere, England's largest lake some 10.5 miles long. The National Trust owns the western shoreline, along with Fellfoot Park in the south, a delightfully restored Victorian estate with picnic areas, tea room and boat hire.
Water activities cover the whole spectrum. Take a dip, hire a canoe, go sailing, water skiing, rowing, windsurfing; even wakeboarding and wake surfing. Enjoy a luxury lake cruise or relax over afternoon tea on a vintage steamboat.
Back on dry land, the walking is excellent whether you opt for a gentle lakeside stroll or a vigorous hike up the fells. For breathtaking panoramic views of the lake and mountains, take the short trek up to Orrest Head. Add cycling, horse riding, gorge scrambling, paragliding - every calorie-crunching activity imaginable.
Discover interesting heritage sites, historic houses, colourful gardens and many other attractions close to your Windermere cottage, including the National Park Visitor Centre at Brockhole, World of Beatrix Potter at Bowness and Townend Historic House. World-class events, meanwhile, such as the Windermere on Water Festival and Windermere Air Show prove ever-popular - just remember to book your Windermere cottage well in advance!
