13. Windermere From The Main Road

Windermere from the Main Road. - The largest and best known of the Lakes, Windermere and its surroundings form a good summary of the whole : sylvan beauty in abundance, wooded islands and seductive creeks and bays, velvet-like meadows fringing the water's edge, dignity lent by some of our shapeliest mountains, and the atmosphere of homely charm and welcome peculiar to all the Lakes.

Our view shows the actual scene which greets every traveller along the main road, and this glimpse of the Langdale Pikes and Bowfell from near Low Wood Hotel will surely challenge comparison with that of any similar view in the whole of Britain.
