Lake District - Windermere & Around (Chapter)
This is the Windermere & Around chapter from Lonely Planet’s Lake District guidebook.
In terms of stateliness and stature, nowhere can match Lake Windermere, England’s largest lake, which runs for a grand 10.5 miles. It’s busy in summer, but you can escape by hopping on a cruise boat or hiking up a hilltop.
• take a cruise across the waters of Windermere and the wooded island of Belle Isle
• admire the Arts and Crafts elegance of Blackwell House
• ride the antique steam trains of the Lakeside and Haverthwaite Railway
• restaurants & accommodation
Coverage includes: Windermere Town & Bowness, On-Windermere, Blackwell House, Lakeside, Newby Bridge & the Southern Shore, Lyth & Winster Valleys and Staveley.
