Windermere And Grasmere
Windermere, it is the perfect Lakeland destination all year round. With the shores of the lake so close, you are never short of fantastic scenery or leisure activities. Several local viewpoints offer panoramic views of both the lake and more distant mountains.
Bustling with shops and different dining experiences to suit everyone you will be spoilt for choice. There’s plenty of bars in the area, with serving 100’s of beers from all over the world as well as locally brewed.
The towns of Windermere and Bowness at the heart of the Lake District have been a magnet for visitors since Victorian times. With easy access to the lakeshore and panoramic views of the lake and surrounding fells, the area remains just as popular today. Access to the lake is actually made 1 mile further from Windermere town centre at Bowness-On-Windermere.
Grasmere is a small traditional Lakeland village situated in idyllic surroundings of fells, lakes and tarns and is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the whole of England's Lake District and Cumbria. Here, together with easy access to a range of wonderful walking, cycling, hiking and climbing opportunities are the graves of William Wordsworth and family in the churchyard of ancient St Oswald's. They feature among the most visited shrines in Europe. Close to the village is the lake where the poet often sat at it's edge and describing it as the “loveliest spot that man has found”. Summer months has Grasmere staging the annual Rush Bearing Ceremony and the widely acclaimed Grasmere Sports featuring traditional Cumberland &Westmorland Wrestling, fell racing, hound trailing and much more whilst the nearby village of Rydal's Sheepdog Trials & Hound Show is yet another fascinating Lake District and Cumbria event providing entertainment for all ages.
Rydal is the home of Rydal Mount, which, as Wordsworths residence for the last 30 years of his life, attracts 1000’s of visitors each year.
Comprising of a small hamlet, church, and a beautiful mile long lake, and sitting between its larger neighbours of Ambleside and Grasmere, it is an ideal retreat with comfortable visitor accommodation set alongside or near to the idyllic lake and its surrounds.
