Windermere Tips

The Glenburn Hotel in Windermere is a lovely relaxing place to stay with homemade scones and coffee to greet you on arrival. Great location free car park on site and just a short walk into Windermere and The Lake in Bowness.....Mackem Pete

The Lakes is a wonderful place to go, especially in spring or autumn, even if it is rather expensive to stay there! Whilst there though, taking the car ferry across Lake Windermere is a must – it’s an experience in itself queuing to board the ferry down a very narrow lane but then the views when afloat are simply spectacular & definitely worth it.

A foodie taking a break in a cottage in the Northwest? For a quick way to stock up on regional produce, regional specialities, organic vegetables and the finer things in life, try Booths Supermarkets. They have 26 stores, a few in Cheshire and North Yorkshire but most in Lancashire and Cumbria. They stock real local cheeses including Kirkham’s Lancashire, possibly the best cheese on the planet; locally made sticky toffee pudding; local bottled beers; and meat including Holker Hall salt marsh lamb (all their meat sourced within the four counties they serve).
