The Windermere area
You'll discover fine varied walking country around Lake Windermere, at the heart of the Lake District. Hire a boat and take to the lake itself, or use the network of footpaths to reach the best high-level views. There are lots of options for places to visit, including Ambleside Roman Fort and Troutbeck Park, which was once owned by Beatrix Potter.
Enjoy this beautiful region and unwind amidst breathtaking scenery at any time of the year. Ramble through some of the best walking country in Britain; get out your mountain bike and go off road or simply enjoy the pleasures of the delightful towns and villages dotted throughout the lakes and Cumbria.
The railway arrived in 1857, making the area much more accessible to visitors and with this demand grew a wealth of Lake District Hotels and a multitude of natural and 'built' attractions. The railway still exists today and brings people from all over the world to this special area of the Lake District National Park. As well as being a sustainable way to travel, most of the Windermere hotels are only a short walk from the station, or at worst a five minute taxi ride.
In terms of attractions, Lake Windermere is well known as England's largest Lake at over 10 miles long and is also the deepest at 65 metres. There are numerous outstanding viewing points within easy reach either by car, or by short walk. Gummer’s Howe is probably the most famous being situated at the south end of Lake Windermere. You can drive most of the way, leaving only a 30 minute walk to marvel at the panoramic views over Lake Windermere and across to Morecambe Bay. To see the Lakes from a different perspective, Arnside Knott rewards those who take this gentle climb with stunning views of the Kent Estuary and Morecambe Bay; simply head for the viewpoint. For a more challenging, but still enjoyable walk for most, take the 2 hour round trip to Brantfell and Post Knott. Take the camera, as there are wonderful views of Windermere, the stunning Langdales and maybe even the Lake District Hotel you’ve chosen. Hope for a clear day and always check the weather forecasts before heading out. Suitable footwear is always important, even on these more leisurely walks.
Around Lake Windermere you’ll find an array of villages and hamlets to enjoy. While the drive will be slow around the twisting back roads, you’ll discover:
+ Fell Foot Park [National Trust] where you can enjoy an ice cream and hire a boat;
+ Aquarium of the Lakes and the Lakeside and Haverthwaite railway at Lakeside, both being attractions you can enjoy on a sunny or rainy day;
+ At Graythwaite you can enjoy Graythwaite Hall Gardens, which are particularly impressive in the Spring;
+ Head up towards Sawrey and visit ‘Hill Top’, a 17th century farmhouse where Beatrix Potter weaved her lyrical magic.
+ At the north end of Lake Windermere, Ambleside is a Mecca for walking enthusiasts and you can take a lake cruise back to your hotel in Bowness-on-Windermere;
+ Visit the Beatrix Potter Attraction in Bowness-on-Windermere

Mysty had everything we needed for our four night stay in Windermere. A great location for exploring the Lake District.
The apartment was as described and although very small had everything required. It was comfortable and as we had good weather during our stay we made use of the outdoor setting for some of our meals. The Windermere area is magnificent and it was easy to get around.
I met Sharon in her cosy accommodation and she was very welcoming. The accommodation was adequate for one person but would have been a tight squeeze if more than one person hired the space.
The accommodation was well organised and thoughtfully arranged. All amenities were within the dwelling. Thankfully a range of DVDS were on offer and I enjoyed these as there was no free wifi.
Centrally located the accommodation was excellent for me to explore the Windermere and Grizeland areas and the accommodation allowed me to self cater very happily.
In conclusion a wonderful retreat but on the small side, even for one person. Could not fault the overall facility and dwelling. Location was in central Windermere village a wonderful position.
This was a very accurate description of the accommodation which contained everything you will need even for a prolonged stay. It is amazingly central and you can walk to the entire town and even down to Bowness which makes getting around so easy that you can eat out at will whilst having peaceful sleepful nights.
I particularly liked the Cafe Italiano at the end of the island block where I consumed the best pizza and lasagna ever consumed in the UK.
There is ample room to park you car as long as it is not a truck - we did so and did not use it for a week.
Three minutes walk up the street is the Bus and Rail which is a hidden treasure for the Lakes. A little hint - we visited the entire area this way and the elevated view gave sense to the incredible beauty of the region. Everywhere we travelled we were greeted by friendly smiling people and I felt pleased that the locals were so proud to share their habitat with mere tourists. A real integrated feel to this place. Finally let me share a little diamond with you - get on the train for a day - we did and bought a Cumbria Round Robin and spent the entire day traversing the region and seeing the entire coast from Carlisle in the north to Barrow in Furness and Lancaster in the south seeing parts that cannot be seen or reached by road or foot! You can get off and explore anywhere and it is the sole reason we will return as we have only begun to glimpse the Lake district.
Thank you for making this possible - we will return!
Mysty is a cosy and well equipped studio flat in the centre of Windermere exactly as described. The location could not be better even if you built it yourself and it even has parking! Gillian made us feel incredibly welcome in Sharon's absence. The place is ideal.
Misty in the centre of Windermere is small but perfectly formed. We lacked for nothing and the location was ideal.
Very convenient, albeit small. But we weren't there to hang out in the room itself. Warm and lots of hot water.
