It’s about time again we continue to share our travel tales from the west.
Beautiful tales from the countryside this time.
The Lake District, a mountainous region located in the North West of England. Very famous for its lakes and its mountains, it has became a popular holiday destination; for those who seek tranquility and peace especially. Right here at Lake District, nestled the National Park and it also contains the deepest and longest lakes in England. Lake Windermere is one of them & it is the largest natural lake in England, and is fed by numerous rivers.
A glimpse of our 2 days 1 night stay at Windermere, Cumbria.
Another spontaneous trip it was. We depended solely on the GPS we’ve got after renting a car. Without booking any hotels/ shelters. Exciting!
It took us about 3 hours to reach Windermere from Glasgow with coffee break stops at Carlisle and other districts, overwhelmed with ‘ooo-s and ahh-s’ of their picturesque landscape.
Rented our car (Ford Focus – Manual) from:

Approximately RM1200 for 7 days (inclusive of GPS)
#1 Windermere Town
Windermere is a town in Cumbria, England, lying about one kilometre away from Lake Windermere. A very friendly and safe town, traveling around town is also very convenient; a number of taxis and buses also operate around the towns and from the railway station.
#2 Village House Bed and Breakfast
Without any reservations in advance, we made a round trip and finally decided on the warm and friendly couple; Tony & his wife who welcomed us at the Village House Bed and Breakfast.
Ideally situated, close to both the rail and coach stations, the Village House is an excellent place to stay while visiting the Lake Distric in Windermere. Good thing about staying at a B&B is the homely atmosphere they provide you, with authentic feelings of typical English homes.
And most importantly; English Breakfast with sausages from Cumbria!
Our breakfast prepared by the couple.
We’re happy folks at Village House. Having breakfast in pajamas. yikes.
A fantastic family run B&B in the Heart of Windermere, Cumbria.

#3 Happy Hour
Live the way they live. Shops will be closed very early at about 4-5pm. Thus after dinner, we went to a nearby bar restaurant to chill. Having a pint or 2 is a must. Putting in pennies into their old school music player selecting Michael Jackson’s hits while watching Chris snook.
We cheered with Guinness 🙂
Winners Stay. Chris beating all local folks.
Next: We crossed Lake Windermere, England’s largest lake the next morning after breakfast! Till then!
