Lake Windermere Reviews
Beautiful place to visit - highly recommend! Spent an hour here looking around the town on the way to Ambleside. more »
I'm sure the lake is beautiful when conditions are right unfortunately we had one of those rainy days. We took a boat to Ambleside and back but were wet through. Will try again when weather is better more »
Although cold as it was winter time the serenity of the place was so worth wrapping up for , old rural style shops close by also a lot of hills but great for strengthening the legs.. recommend a holiday you'll love it.
If given chance to settle in UK I gonna settle here... Beautiful colours in Autumn. Calm, quite and great place to relax. Nice for hikes and trails
