Windermere and the South

The Southern Lakes are very diverse, with the handsome town of Kendal forming the gateway to the area. Beyond Kendal lies Windermere – the name of both the bustling town and the huge lake, dotted with islands and ringed by historic houses such as Arts and Crafts Blackwell. A little car ferry takes you across the lake to Beatrix Potter’s home at Near Sawrey, from where you can access picturesque Hawkshead. It is a region of impressive mountains but one of its lesser-known delights is a series of interesting coastal settlements.
