Stayed over new year. In February I went on a cloud free sunny day and it was stunning to see it crystal clear with the Langdale Pikes in the background

We took the cruiser from lakeside to Bowness which meanders up the lake at a leisurely pace. There is some stunning scenery, as well as some fabulous houses to see.
There are also some lovely walks from various points

We took a boat ride from Bowness-on-Windermere to Ambleside that allowed us to see the natural beauty of the lake as well as the towns and settlements surrounding it. Ambleside is a quaint town with many historic sites, stores and restaurants. Definitely worth it!

Such a vast lake and so beautiful. There’s so many places to eat, drink, relax and take in the views. Lots of watersports activities too. Can’t wait to visit again.
