A self-catering cottage in Windermere is a prime location for soaking up the best of the Lake District. You'll find Windermere a perfect base for exploring the rest of the Lake District, and a delightful Lakeland village to enjoy during your stay. The village is just off the A591, the main route to the heart of the Lakes, and is less than half an hour from the M6. Windermere also has a train station right at the centre of the village.
In Windermere you'll find a high-class Booths supermarket, stocked with fine local produce and daily essentials. The headquarters of Lakeland Ltd is a must for anyone who likes to get creative in the kitchen. Windermere high street has a traditional butcher and a selection of shops selling local produce. A clutch of pubs in the village serve good hearty food and Lakeland ales. There is also a selection of tasty cafes for breakfast out and excellent Lake District restaurants.
Just a walk or short taxi ride away, the bustling village of Bowness nestles on the eastern shores of Lake Windermere. Hire boats and row boats bob on the water in Bowness Bay, while Windermere Lake Cruises depart regularly to Ambleside and Lakeside. The cruises offer buffet meals and live music during summer evening cruises.
Wonderful walks begin from Windermere and nearby, including to the spectacular viewpoint at Orrest Head - the first Lakeland summit visited by Alfred Wainwright. You're also only a few miles from Staveley, where you can start a number of stunning walks into the Kentmere Valley, but a scenic drive will also take you to Ambleside, Coniston, the Langdale Valley or Grasmere, home to some of the most memorable walking routes in the Lake District National Park.

The Lake District
The Lake District is a place like no other. No other region in the world is so packed with such varied and stunning scenery in such as small area– and it's all on your doorstep with easy access by car or rail. The choice of outdoor activities is endless with some of the best walks, climbs and bike rides in the world, beautiful lakes for sailing, canoeing, windsurfing or just a cruise one of several ferry services. The National Park itself encompasses soaring mountains, native woodland (you might see a red squirrel!), lush meadows and of course the many famous lakes themselves. Wordsworth, Beatrix Potter, Ruskin and many more have been inspired by the Lake District and made their homes here. The homes are still here and open to visit and they too are surrounded by majestic mountain panoramas. There also some surprises – kids will love attractions such as the giant i-max screen at Rheged Visitor Centre, Go Ape aerial activities in Grizedale Forest and The World of Beatrix Potter in Bowness. And where better to stay than a classic Lakeland Cottage. Lakelovers have over 400 properties in prime locations within the heart of the Lakes and we specialise in hand-picked properties that we know you'll love. Whether you want a grand property for a family gathering or a cosy bolt hole for two we can't wait to show you what we have for you to choose from. We know The Lakes inside out and we are just a click of a mouse or a phone call away.
