Popular Holiday Destinations

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. The town of Windermere does not sit on the shores of the lake – between itself and the water lies another, distinct town, Bowness-on-Windermere, though there is plenty to recommend Windermere as a fine spot to enjoy a short break or longer holiday.

Cartmel is a centuries old unspoilt village in an area recognised as one of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

After Windermere, the second-largest lake in the Lake District is Ullswater, stretching for 7.5 miles between Pooley Bridge at the northern end and Glenridding and Patterdale at the southern end. Carved out by a long-extinct glacier, the deep valley in which the lake sits is flanked by an impressive string of fells, most notably the razor ridge of Helvellyn, Cumbria’s third-highest mountain at 950m.
