Places to Stay

Windermere, The Lake District

Stretching for 10.5 miles between Ambleside and Newby Bridge, Windermere isn't just the queen of Lake District lakes – it's also the largest body of water anywhere in England, closer in stature to a Scottish loch. It's been a centre for tourism since the first trains chugged into town in 1847 and it's still one of the National Park's busiest spots. Here we feature a hand picked collection of places to stay in and around Windermere.
