Situated entirely within in the Lake District National Park, Windermere is the largest natural lake in England. It has been one of the country`s most popular places for holidays and summer homes since 1847. For many years, power-boating and water-skiing have been popular activities on the lake. It`s surrounded by mountain peaks and villages, including Bowness-on-Windermere, where The World of Beatrix Potter Attraction has modern displays on the children`s writer. In the north, trails lead to Orrest Head, a hill with views across the lake and the fells beyond, and Holehird Gardens, with their alpines, heathers and shrubs.
