Lake Windermere's list of activities are endless, if you're in the Lake District for a lively, fun-filled holiday then why not hire a rowing boat, canoe or kayak? Or maybe you are more confident on dry land, you could take a stroll up Orrest Head in Windermere, a very central and easy walk providing fabulous views.
