England’s longest lake, Windermere,
continues to be a popular destination for tourists visiting Cumbria.
Whether sailing on the lake or climbing the fells, the splendour of
the area is unsurpassed.
To the north of Windermere is some of the best fell
walking in the UK including the Langdale
Pikes in the awesome Langdale Valley. For something less strenuous,
amble around the lanes of the village of Grasmere -
famed for being the home to the poet William Wordsworth. An excellent
view over the village, and of the ‘mere’ of the same name,
can be achieved from Brackenfell just
to the east of the village.
