Windermere is the largest natural lake in England. Explore Windermere's surroundings by going to Grasmere (Lake Grasmere & Herdy) and Bowness-on-Windermere (Boat Tours & Water Sports, The World of Beatrix Potter Attraction, &more). And it doesn't end there: explore the activities along Lake Windermere, have fun at Michael Coates Clay Shooting, see the interesting displays at Hill Top, Beatrix Potter's House, and scramble along the landscape with a canyoning and rapelling tour.

You can plan Windermere trip in no time by asking Inspirock to help create your itinerary.

Exeter to Windermere is an approximately 5.5-hour car ride. You can also take a train; or do a combination of flight and train. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 11th (Tue) early enough to drive to Portinscale.
