Macdonald Hotels in Windermere

About Our Macdonald Hotel in Windermere

The largest natural lake in England, with stunning vistas and 18 islands, was another to catch the eye of poet and Lakes' lover William Wordsworth. Stay in our hotel in Bowness-on-Windermere and his words will ring true. 'None of the other Lakes unfold so many fresh beauties.'

Take a steamer or launch trip on the water for a gentle introduction to its charms. Down at the southern end of Windermere, you can connect with a steam train that'll take you through the lake and river scenery of the Leven Valley. The Aquarium of the Lakes opens up the depths of the lake and introduces its trout, pike, elusive charr and even otters.

Every year, all eyes turn upwards when the flying machines of the Windermere Air Festival put on awe-inspiring displays over the water. Kids will also be enthralled by the tall tales and friendly creatures of the World of Beatrix Potter visitor attraction.
