A boat service is available all year round on Lake Windermere.
In this summer scene, the Swan is setting out on a two hour, evening buffet cruise.
William Wordsworth (Daffodils), Beatrix Potter ( Peter Rabbit and Squirrel Nutkin ), Arthur Ransome ( Swallows and Amazons ), Donald Campbell ( water speed record ), A. Wainwright ( walker and author ) and John Cunliffe ( Postman Pat ) are among the many noted people associated with the area that inspired them. Some of their cottages and holiday homes are still open to tourists. Many of today's locals and visitors alike benefit especially from Beatrix Potter's legacy of farms and land to the National Trust. We hope you will enjoy the freedom to explore the nation's heritage and feel rejuvenated in this walkers' natural paradise.
