Windermere out and about

The most famous of the Lakeland towns and villages is Windermere. This bustling miniature metropolis is at the absolute heart of the Lakes. It is the premier Lake District destination for self-catering cottage holidays.

Windermere was named after the lake around which the town has grown. It has fast become one of the UK’s most popular areas for holiday homes. Especially since the arrival of the Kendal and Windermere railway line in 1847. It was 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.

Add a little excitement to your holiday with a Kannku self-drive, off-road experience. See the Lakes as you never have before, as you bump and power your way across the fells in a 4×4. They are available for both individuals and groups. The Kannku headquarters are right across the road from Lakelovers Windermere HQ. All our guests can enjoy fantastic discounts when they show one of our Lakelovers Recommends keyfobs. Which you will find on your property keys.

Learn loads more about the surrounding areas as you travel with a Mountain Goat Tour. They are available from right next door to our head office. Or why not visit the Lake District visitors centre at Brockhole? It’s a short drive out of Windermere town towards Ambleside. Here you can find out lots of information about where to go and what to see. As well as take part in the mountains of daily activities and courses available throughout the year. The kids can enjoy the fantastic free adventure playground. It is suitable for children aged 5 to 14 years.

Windermere offers a range of local and national shops, banks, cafes and restaurants. They are located through the centre of the town. Forgotten your shampoo? Pick it up in Boots. Forgotten to bring that all-important holiday read? There is a well-stocked W H Smith.

For anyone considering a holiday self-catering in Windermere, a visit to The Lighthouse is a must. For incredible take-away sandwiches, soups, baked potatoes and snacks, a visit to The Sandwich Chef is in order. For evening dining, don’t miss a chance to eat, drink and be merry at the nearby Brown Horse at Winster. It is located on the outskirts of the town and easily accessible by car or taxi – taxis can be picked up at Windermere station. Lakelovers also recommend the Wild Boar; for dining with a difference.
