Taking a round trip on an amazing steam locomotive is one of the must-do's on your holiday to Windermere! Go to Lakeside and Haverthwaite located in the heart of the Lake District and take a three and a half mile journey in the Leven Valley. You can enjoy the tranquil valley scenery, admire the Victorian station and spend time in the cosy station restaurant.

And don't miss the highlights such as woodland walks, the hydrangea walk and Gunnera pond and waterfall near the car park which offer the best place to enjoy the Windermere panorama.

3. Reach the top of Brant Fell

Brant Fell is a short 5 kilometre circular walk behind Bowness-on-Windermere that offers a wonderful perspective of the lake that is impossible to miss. The walk up the hill is quite steep, but on a sunny day the views at the top are well worth the effort. Start the walk from the centre of Bowness and pass through fields and then climb to the desolate summit of Brant Fell. Once you're there, relax and enjoy the beauty of the stunning mountains and the inspiring views of the loch. One of the best things about holidaying at Windermere is that even short circular walks will take you to glorious viewpoints with very little effort!
