CENTRAL & SOUTH EAST LAKES

SERENE MOUNTAINS & VIBRANT TOWNS

Do you often dream of exploration and discovery? Here, if you listen quietly, you may hear the whispers of poet’s words floating by in the gentle mountain breeze, for this is the land of the artists and romantics. In the days of old people like William Wordsworth and Beatrix Potter wrote poems and created heart-warming tales that would inspire people for generations to visit this enchanting land.

Lake Windermere is a short drive from the large town of Kendal which was crowned the gateway to the Lakes. You do not have to go far to find exciting things to do; from tree top adventures, see the beautiful lake by boat & visit the motor & boat museums. Learn the story of Peter Rabbit or if you’re feeling adventurous why not learn to wakeboard, then sit back relax and tickle your taste buds at award winning restaurants and bars. A stone’s throw away is Ambleside town boasting 4 cinema screens, independent cafes and shops. Ambleside is the door that you step through to explore the wonderfully wild playground of the Central Lakes including Grasmere, Rydal, and the awe inspiring Langdales, a place where Stone Age man settled at the foot of these very mountains, among the lush green valleys and rich meadows. The Central and South-East Lakes is the land of dreamers and doers, seeking to immerse themselves in the wealth and enchanting wonders that are there to experience and enjoy.
