The moment you step off the train the tranquil area, beautiful fresh air and peaceful sounds washes over you. It's lovely and the complete opposite of London!
There are 4 small villages I spent most of my time in, Windermere, Bowness-on-Windermere, Ambleside and Waterhead. Bowness-on-Windermere and Waterhead are located right on the water front and you can take a ferry to each port. While Windermere and Ambleside ...
