Travelling to Windermere by Ferry
One of many highlights of a holiday in the Lake District is the chance of a river cruise. We recommend you don’t miss out on the opportunity, there are sightseeing tours and hop-on/hop-off services available.
When it comes to travelling through the countryside to reach your spa retreat, then Hawkshead, Grizedale forest and Kendal are linked by the Ferry Nab. Spaces for cars are limited but the shortcut can be a practical way of reaching your destination. Remember to add this an option within google maps or your sat-nav as it may not automatically come up as a suggestion.
If you’re travelling on foot, then Windermere is accessible by boat from elsewhere on the lakes. Coniston Water to Windermere is a popular route. Travel in luxury and hire your own boat for the weekend or take Windermere Lake Cruises and start your holiday in style.
