Discover the Lake District with Windermere holiday lets

Measuring in at 11 miles long, 200 feet deep and covering a footprint of more than 5 square miles, Windermere is England's flagship lake. Its towns and villages have been luring holidaymakers since 1847, when the Kendal and Windermere Railway started whisking passengers to Cumbria. Perched on a hilltop, Windermere Town is filled with characterful Tudor buildings. Lively Bowness-on-Windermere is set on the lake's eastern shores, while bustling Ambleside is filled with shops, cafes and country pubs. All serve as gateways to the Lake District National Park, a wild expanse of rolling hills, rugged peaks and sparkling lakes.

Outdoor activities near your Windermere holiday rental

The Lake District National Park is a paradise for ramblers, with 100s of trails to explore. One of the region's most popular walks takes you to the top of Orrest Head, from where you can enjoy sweeping views over Windermere and the surrounding hillsides. One of the best ways to enjoy Windermere is on the lake itself, with scenic cruises departing from Bowness Pier. You'll also find plenty of places to rent kayaks and rowing boats. If lake access is a priority, opt for holiday rentals in Bowness-on-Windermere, where you'll be just steps from the shoreline.
