Enjoy the stunning mountain views around England's largest lake, Windermere and the bustling town of Ambleside. Coniston water is the third longest lake in the Lake District. Get onto the water with boat tours, motor boats, rowing boats, kayaks and paddleboards to hire. Its also a great place for walking and hiking. Visit Keswick, a bustling market town at the north end of Derwent lake, correctly named Derwentwater. Or explore the quiet valley of Borrowdale at the southern end. Surrounded by stunning mountain scenery, Ullswater is a popular starting point for walkers and climbers. Home to a breath-taking valley, countless walking and camping hotspots, the Langdale Valley is a perfect destination for those that love the outdoors. Visit Buttermere, Crummock, Loweswater and Bassenthwaite lakes, the North Lakes is possibly the most peaceful part of the district with many features of historical interest to be explored. Surrounded by mountains, Red Pike, Kirk Fell, Great Gable and Scafell Pike, Wastwater is the deepest and perhaps the most awe-inspiring of all the lakes.
