About the neighbourhood
Windermere is the largest natural lake in England. It is a ribbon lake formed in a glacial trough after the retreat of ice at the start of the current interglacial. It has been one of the country’s most popular places for holidays and summer homes since 1847, when the Kendal and Windermere Railway built a branch line to it. It is in the county of Cumbria and entirely within the Lake District National Park.
How to get there
Located 15 minutes from the M6 and within 5 minutes walk of the Lake. Windermere town centre is either a pleasant 10 minute walk or a couple of minutes in the car.
