Car Rental

Will be travelling to Lake District in early May and was hoping to be able to rent a car upon arrival in Windermere via train from London. Can't seem to find any car rental agencies located in Windermere proper. Can anyone help? What would be the nearest town/location where I could rent a car for 5 days?

You will need a larger town or city to get a really good choice of rental companies. The choices are Kendal, Lancaster or Preston. Although the last of these 3 is about 40 miles south of the Lake District it is the largest and I think all of the trains from London stop there so it may be your best bet.

There is a car rental company in Windermere itself. It is called Lakes Car Hire and they will deliver the car to the train station so it is there for your arrival.

You can find them on www.lakeshire.co.uk or do a search on yahoo or msn for car hire windermere. They are very reasonably priced and all the cars for rental are less than six months old.

Hope this helps.
