Where to stay in Windermere

About Windermere

Windermere is nestled in England’s inviting Lake District, only one kilometre from the impressive expanse of Windermere lake, where you can enjoy a wealth of water sports and an atmosphere that’s inspired some of England’s greatest poets. The town itself is blessed with natural spoils, hiking trails, Beatrix Potter attractions and charming pubs and cafes.

Things to do

Hang out around the centre of Windermere to soak up the old-world British atmosphere of the town’s bed and breakfasts and family-run coffee shops. Classic British dishes can be enjoyed at Hyltons Restaurant, while Vinegar Jones is perfect for the customary fish and chips. Grab a fresh pastry at The Cornish Bakery or enjoy a late-night meal at The Magic Roundabout.

Keen for a drink? Check out some of the local pubs and bars, such as The Albert, which dishes up delicious pub food and also has a beer garden and live music. The Fizzy Tarté, however, is ideal for enjoying a leisurely cocktail. Don’t forget to indulge in a bit of shopping around town at Mountain Warehouse Bowness or MorsePoint Designer Clothing.

Delve into the region’s history with famed children’s author Beatrix Potter at the popular The World of Beatrix Potter Attraction, where you can enjoy hands-on exhibits showcasing Potter’s writing, including “Peter Rabbit”. Afterwards, check out the 15th-century St Martin's Church and venture south to see the yellow daffodils of William Wordsworth fame at Wordsworth Country.

Those who enjoy the great outdoors can hike up Orrest Head, a prominent hill that rewards hikers with panoramic lake and countryside vistas. Alternatively, get out on Windermere lake for some boating, fishing or kayaking.

Getting around

Windermere is easily reached by catching the train from Manchester Airport to Windermere railway station. You can walk around town, but having a private car is best for exploring the surrounding region.
