Here you'll find the useful Bowness Bay Information Centre, The Steamboat Museum at Windermere which features a collection of restored steamboats, and The World Of Beatrix Potter – a fantastic attraction for fans of the children's writer where kids can come face to face with the books' characters and learn about the author's life. A short walk from Windermere will take you to Orrest Head, a viewpoint that offers breathtaking views of the lake.

To the south of Lake Winderemere is Newby Bridge, a hamlet that gets its name from the 17th century five-arched stone bridge built across the River Leven. One of the most pleasant ways to approach the lake from Newby Bridge is by hopping on the Lakeside and Haverthwaite Railway, a heritage railway that runs from Haverthwaite via Newby Bridge and up to Lakeside. Apart from the railway station, the hamlet of Newby Bridge itself has a number of shops, cafés and pubs. Also close to Newby Bridge is Fell Foot Park, a Victorian park that's perfect for family picnics.

Close to Near Sawrey is Claife Heights, an upland area that boasts magnificent views of the lake and the surrounding area.
