Exploring The Lakes

Explore Lake Windermere in style.

The Lakeside Hotel & Spa is the perfect spot for a relaxing break. Set in its own peaceful gardens overlooking the southern shore line of Lake Windermere.

A trip on Lake Windermere is a great experience that many of our guest enjoy by booking a return trip on a Windermere Lake Cruise just a short distance from the hotel entrance.

This year Lakeside can now offer our guests a one hour cruise on our own motor launch either for just the two of you, or perhaps with friends or family.

Just sit back, relax with a chilled glass or two of Lanson Champagne and enjoy your personal tour on Lake Windermere followed on your return by either deluxe afternoon tea or a delicious dinner.

So book our launch for a private trip during your stay with us a explore Lake Windermere your way. 

We look forward to welcoming you.
