Great views from paths on both sides of the lake, but if not very fit, take the steam launch to enjoy

It was November and cold and very busy due to it being national time trial week. Beautiful location, stunning scenery and a great place to view the sunset. There are some shops on the walk in from the village, which is also worth a mooch around. A lovely day out.

Lovely picturesque lake. Smaller than windermere but just as lovely. Had lots of snow so looked magical. Lots of walks and picnic areas.

We went on a lovely boat trip on a steam paddle boat, very antique looking. All the interesting places were pointed out such as swallows & amazons island, Donald Campbells Bluebird last tragic speed attempt, various other things, most enjoyable & not too expensive. Had food in a very pleasant restaurant right by the water and boat landing stages, Unfortunately... More
