Lake District Holidays

The Lake District National Park is situated in the northern western part of England, traversing an estimate of 875 square miles of glorious landscape with 16 lakes and providing some of the most wonderful panoramas in the world.

While there is indeed a vast collection of places to view during holiday trips, visitors tend to choose the towns located by Lake Windermere, which is known to be the largest lake in the UK. Bowness, Windermere and Ambleside has turned into tourist-friendly towns in order to accommodate the visitors.

Bowness is the main attraction in the area. While here, you can board one of the ferries docked in the area and traverse across the Lake. These ferries also make stops at different destinations such as the Aquarium of the Lakes that is dedicated to the marine creatures living in the lake. This area also has a cafeteria where you can relax whilst basking in the views of the town.

Alternatively, you can also opt to visit Ambleside, which is on the Northern tip of the lake. It has a lot of shops and is actually a Lakeland market town.

If you travel a little further, you can arrive at the village of Grasmere, who was made known by the famous English poet, William Wordsworth who resided in the area for fourteen years. You can still drop by his former residence, Dove Cottage, which is under the wardship and maintenance of the English National Trust in order to conserve the poet’s legacy.

In Grasmere, you will also come across the Ginger bread shop. Ginger bread that’s straight out of the oven have been made here for centuries and bought fresh. At the hind part of the bread shop lies the cemetery where you can visit the members of the Wordsworth family’s graves.

A short distance from the lake, the Windermere village can be found. It is also one of the main places where tourists enjoy their stay. Windermere village was first inaugurated in 1850. Long-established shops and modern souvenir shops alike can be found here, as well as the common Lake District lodgings for visitors.
