About Lake Windermere
At 10.5-miles long, one-mile wide and 220-feet deep, Windermere is the largest natural lake in England and is in the largest national park in England, the Lake District, which welcomes over 16.4 million visitors every year. Fed by numerous rivers which run through the Lake District, Lake Windermere has been one of UK's most important waterways for hundreds of years, and truly needs to be seen to be believed.
Lose yourself amongst the many trails and hikes that run around the lake, or for a more regimented ramble, sign up with the Lake District guides, who will take you on the finest treks the lake has to offer.
Of course, the only real way to experience Lake Windermere is to take to the water, and there are several ways to do so. Self-drive boats can be hired from a number of points around the lake, from Waterhead, Low Wood, Bowness, Brockhole and Fell Foot Park. Or if you prefer the finer things in life, hop on a Windermere Cruise. For the more adventurous, look no further than a canoe course, learn to Eskimo roll your way across Windermere, taking in the beautiful surroundings as you go.
