Frequently asked questions

What are the major attractions in Windermere?
If your trip to Windermere is all organized but your itinerary is looking a little empty, we can give you a helping hand.Not far from the heart of the city, Lake Windermere is one sight you might like to add to your to-do list. If you still have some space on that schedule, World of Beatrix Potter and Bowness Pier will keep you busy as well.
What are the best road trip destinations near Windermere?
With some terrific road trip options available in the surrounding area, having your own car makes sense. Without one, it’d be much harder to explore everything that Keswick, 18 miles away, has to offer. See the sights beginning with Derwentwater, Catbells Lakeland Walk and Cumberland Pencil Museum. The locals are also likely to point you toward Appleby-in-Westmorland, 25 miles away. If you only see one attraction here, make sure it’s Appleby Castle. (But we’d also recommend Courtyard Gallery and Appleby Golf Club.)
