What is the largest village in England
Northern England from a picture book: Windermere
England's largest lake in the Cumbrian Mountains
The largest natural lake in England is entirely in the Lake District National Park. It is 17 kilometers long and between 400 and 1500 meters wide. There are 18 islands in the Winderemere, the largest is over a kilometer long and is served by excursion steamers. Picturesque, partly wooded hills line the lake, where you can go on easy hikes. To the north rise the higher fells, as the grassland-covered mountains of the Cumbrian Mountains are called. On the north bank is Ambleside, a pretty village with 2,600 inhabitants and a starting point for mountain hikes, mountain bike tours and other excursions in the Lake District.

Across a ridge to the largest lake in England
The hike leads to the Claife ridge with its larch-lined sheep pastures and its small lakes. Via Far Sawrey, in the shade of old trees, you come down to Windermere with its fern-rich green forests and the lake dotted with numerous sailing boats, behind which the majestic fells open up. Past Wray Castle the hike goes through graceful, small-parceled landscape back to Hawkshead. (there and back: 19.7 kilometers, 5 hours, up and down: 298 meters).
Village idyll in the Lake District
The village ten kilometers west of Windermere is one of the most traditional in the Lake District with its stone houses in Market Square. An ivy-covered country house on Main Street houses the Beatrix Potter Gallery, which exhibits pictures of the children's book author and illustrator who died in 1943. The upper-class lawyer’s daughter, raised by governesses, had started writing against her parents’s wishes and became a successful sheep farmer in the Lake District in the second half of her life.

On a viewing platform over the Windermere
"Windermere from different perspectives" is the motto of this hike. From the bathing perspective on the lakeshore, the higher the altitude, you get a wider view, which includes the Windermere, the Loughrigg Fell and the Langdale Pikes. Detours to the remains of the Roman garrison and a waterfall round off the tour. (there and back: 11.4 kilometers, 3.45 hours, up and down: 600 meters).
