In some ways the archetypically British setting, Lake Windermere sits charmingly in a shallow, lush valley of rolling hills, bushy trees, and manicured fields. This is the largest natural lake in England. It provides an iconic slice of countryside life in Great Britain with its laid-back, picturesque tranquility and unpretentious beauty. The lake has a surface area of 14.7 sq km (5.7 sq mi). Put Lake Windermere and other Windermere attractions into our Windermere trip planner, and watch your holiday take shape.
