The shoreline of Lake Windermere lies on your doorstep. Hop on a boat from the park’s private marina or from nearby Ambleside to cruise its gentle waters. Or, if you feel daring, try your hand at kayaking, windsurfing and sailing.
Further along the lake’s banks, you’ll find the bustling town of Bowness-on-Windermere, where you can relive your childhood memories at the World of Beatrix Potter.
Of course, it’s the unending choice of fells, lakes and woodlands that make the Lake District so special. From wild Scafell Pike, England’s tallest mountain, to the quiet serenity of Coniston Water no day is the same.Request a brochure Arrange a visit
