The most famous of the Lakeland towns and villages, Windermere, a bustling miniature metropolis at the absolute heart of the Lakes, is the premier Lake District destination for self-catering cottage holidays. Named after the lake around which the town has grown, Windermere has been one of the UK’s most popular areas for holiday homes and summer houses, since the arrival of the Kendal and Windermere railway line in 1847. Formed 13,000 years ago from two glaciers – the first the Troutbeck Valley and the second the Fairfield Horseshoe – Windermere is the largest natural lake in England. Known as a ribbon lake, there are 18 islands on Windermere, the largest of which, Belle Island is now privately owned. Although originally known as Winder Mere, because the lakebed is deeper than it is wide, Windermere is actually a lake.
