Things to Do Near The Ryebeck Lake Windermere

One of the highlights of a stay at the Ryebeck is the vast array of beautiful scenery right on the doorstep. You can easily explore some of the most enchanting countryside found anywhere in the UK. Windermere, the longest lake in England is only a short walk away and well worth exploring.

There is so much to see and to do around the lake, but by far the best way to see its entirety is from the water. There are frequent cruises along its reaches, ranging from 45 minutes to 3 hours, depending on how long you would like to stay on the water.

Other places to visit along the lake shore, include Waterhead, Wray, Brockhole, and Lakeside.
