Lakeside at Lake Windermere in Cumbria

RS Home

Lakeside is a very small village at the bottom of Lake Windermere, where the tour boats visit.

Lakeside is popular for its Steam Trains that run back and forth to Haverthwaite Railway Station, about 3 miles south of Lakeside.

There is a popular cafe above the train station, and the hotel has a popular beer garden, both with amazing views.
