The beautiful  view of Lake Windermere at High Strawberry Gardens, Lake District, Cumbria


At 10.5 miles long, Windermere is England's largest lake. Pikes tower above its shoreline and the bustling market towns that nestle below. Sweeping landscapes give way to the glistening waters of Windermere and the mock-gothic castle, Wray Castle, looks out over the north-west shores. Our cottages perch on the water's edge, giving you a good starting base to explore the shores of Windermere.

Where to stay

Scafell Pike and Wastwater in Winter with snow

Scafell Pike and Wasdale  

Nestling in the shadows of Scafell Pike is remote fishing hamlet, Wasdale. England’s deepest lake, Wastwater, runs through the hamlet and dramatic wilderness dominates much of its landscape. For those seeking a mountain adventure, the options are almost endless; from a short scenic walk up some of the lower fells such as Middle Fell to walking up England’s highest mountain, Scafell Pike.
