4 days in November at Lake District

My wife and I will be travelling to the Lake District in November and staying in a guest house in Windermere. We plan to take one of the full day tours orgnaised by Lakes Super tours for a general overview of the area. Any suggestions for the other 3 days? Would a visit to Keswick be feasable from Windermere or is it better to be based in Keswick?

Many thanks in Advance.

Take a look around Hawshead village and then on to Tarnhaws for a very pleasant walk around the small lake ( walk will take you about an hour ). No you don`t have to be based at Keswick, it`s no more than an hours drive away.

In answer to the specific question about visiting Keswick from Windermere even if you do not have a car it will be very easy to do this as there is a very regular bus service between the two places.

I think they usually use a double decker bus on this rounte and many people do the journey simply for the views.

Many thanks to you all. I appreciate your advise. We are sure that the Lake District will be an enjoyable experience.

Yes the double decker bus will be worth the trip by itself.
