“Lovely village”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 23, 2013

Windermere is just what one expects in the lake District. Quaint. Picturesque. (Which draws lots of tourists, unfortunately.) This is a lovely place to visit for a quiet time amidst bucolic surroundings.

“Lovely Holiday”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 23, 2013

Lake Windermere is a lovely place especially down by the lake which Dad and I enjoyed especially in the lovely weather. Also plenty of shops and cafes and places to eat too. A lovely place to visit we really enjoyed it.

“Lake cruises”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 20, 2013

The cruises are frequent and vary in length from 45 minutes to 1 and a half hours. You can either break the trip and get off at one of the stopping points to return on a later boat or do the round trip in one go. Relaxing and delightful views. Be careful where you park though as the roadside parking is two hours with no return for two hours and the all day car parks fill up quickly.

“Amazing View”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 20, 2013 via mobile

This is the first time I have come to lake district and I took cruise on lake windermere. This was the most amazing experience I ever had, the view from cruise was stunning. The lake itself is very beutiful and the sorrounding area adds to lot of charm. Having recently been on short cruise in Istanbul and on bosphorous and comparing it with lake windermere I will certainly rate lake windermere much higher !!!

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 17, 2013

Excellent boat trips from Bowness, Ableside is lovely also steam railway, atthe bottom of Windermere is worth a trip as if you get off atthe end of the line your not far from the Swan hotel and Spa Newby bridge, great place for lunch on the river!
