Lake Windermere

Just east of the hotel is the shoreline of Lake Windermere, England’s biggest lake. The lake, which extends for 10.5 miles (16.8 kilometers), is dotted with islands of different sizes, including Belle Isle, which hosts an 18th-century mansion, and the tiny Maiden Home, which consists of little more than a single tree rising above the water. Lake cruises depart from the pier at Bowness-on-Windermere.
