Windermere lake is a wonderful place. The lake huge. There are plenty options for boating in it. It gets crowded on summer. But I really enjoyed.

Great lake with boats to have a trip on. Plenty of Swans about if you want to photo or feed nice park not far away but very busy and parking a nightmare so early or evening is the best time to see everything.

I agree with Mark B. However please be aware that Windermere Town And Station are 1- 1.5 miles from Lake Windermere. The nearest access point on the Lake to the station is Bowness on Windermere.

The best place to go with a wheelchair is around the lake at the Amberside end also at bowmess on the share line. You can also go on the steamers.
