Wouldn't want to do it as a one day trip. An overnight stay is preferable.

The route is simple - train to Windermere from Euston with possible changes of train at Preston and Oxenholme. But Windermere isn't the greatest area of the Lakes and you'd want to go to Grasmere at the very least which requires a bus ride of about 30 minutes each way.

But taking the first train from Euston at 5:39am you will arrive at Windermere at 9:33am. The last train departs Windermere at 8:00pm arriving Euston at 23:38 so you can get 10 hours in the Lakes.

See nationalrail.co.uk and book when the cheap tickets become available which is a maximum of 12 weeks before date of travel.

The best way to come from London is *not* as a day trip! You'll spend far more time travelling than you'll spend enjoying the Lake District.
