Windermere

Windermere, at 10.5 miles long, one mile wide and 220 feet deep, is the largest natural lake in England, and is fed by numerous rivers.

Bowness-on-Windermere – Lakeland’s most popular holiday resort – is an excellent centre for boating activities, with over 10,000 boats registered.

The village of Windermere grew around the Windermere railway station, about a mile and a half from the lake. The village was originally called Birthwaite, but the railway company decided to call the station after the lake.
