Relax in a cosy holiday lodge or lakeside cottage

Located in scenic South Lakeland in the Lake District, on the banks of Englands largest lake, the town of Windermere is a popular holiday destination.

The Lake District is one of the UK’s most beautiful regions. Spread across hundreds of square miles in northern England, it's a blissful collection of lakes, forests, and mountains. It's provided inspiration to writers such as William Wordsworth and Beatrix Potter, and is the perfect setting for a stay in one of its many log cabins and waterside lodges. Among the area's highlights is the town of Windermere, named after the enormous nearby natural lake, a tranquil haven in itself.

A range of water sports are available to suit everyone, including boating and fishing, and the area offers plenty for nature lovers and bird watchers. The beautiful surrounding landscape is also perfect for hiking, walking and mountain biking.

Getting There

Getting to your Windermere holiday cottage

Windermere is easily accessible from all parts of the UK. Lying north of the bustling town of Kendal, it has good road and rail links. Once in Windermere, there's plenty of taxi companies serving the town to get you to and from your lodges if you need assistance with getting around.

Treat yourself to one of the country’s most scenic driving routes by renting a car for the trip to Windermere. Take the M6 heading north before exiting for the A591 at junction 36, which you continue on until Windermere. In town, you'll find ample parking available for your vehicle.

If you prefer, catch the train instead. Windermere railway station is only served by a handful of local services, so you'll most likely need to take a connecting train from Oxenholme or Preston. These stations provide main line connections from cities such as Manchester, Leeds, Glasgow, and London. An off-peak single between Oxenholme and Windermere costs £6.20, with trains running about every hour.

From Windermere, you can hop on a local bus and explore the rest of the Lake District. There are regular services connecting the town to Ambleside, Kendal, Lancaster, and Morecambe. Many coach companies also organise excursions from a number of major cities to Windermere during the peak travel season.
