A Lake District Tour from Windermere
A selection of my favourite views linked by a scenic tour through the Lake District of William Wordsworth and Beatrix Potter. Reach the views that inspired past writers and artists - after all it was their words and images that made the Lake District a must see destination!

Whether you are in search of spectacular landscapes or a stunning backdrop to a family photo this Windermere tour has you in mind. I have collected not only my favourite views but those that inspired the very first Guidebook to the Lakes into a stunning tour. The Lake District of William Wordsworth is linked with the Lake District of Beatrix Potter via inspirational viewpoints and some of the prettiest villages for a great half day.
On this tour from Windermere you will appreciate that great views can be seen from the roadside, but truly stunning views that make you stop and exclaim 'wow!' are reached in short easy walks of 20 -30 mins.
Some sights are best seen from the car and others on foot. This tour combines the best of both and can include as much or as little walking as you like.
