Crummock Water
Crummock Water is built by people who live and love the English Lake District and surrounding areas. So if we stray beyond the technical boundaries of the southlakes area as such please don't be too harsh with us - the lake district is an amazing place.

We hope this web site will help bring to life one of the most precious and beautiful areas in the world. We have outlined a handful of places below...

bowness on windermereBowness on Windermere

Possibly the busiest tourist destination in the Lake District, Bowness, famous for it's Beatrix Potter connections, is allways a lively place to visit.

People come from all over the world (particularly Japan) to enjoy the lake for sailing and water sports, or just to relax and enjoy the atmosphere of the area and the town’s picturesque setting.

Readers of Arthur Ransome's Swallows and Amazons series of books will recognise Bowness as the lakeside town of 'Rio'


One of the most picturesque villages you will ever see. Situated halfway between the north of Consiton Water and Lake Windermere, it has prospered since its beginnings as a medieval market town.

Its grand history includes connections with the poet William Wordsworth and children's story author Beatrix Potter.

Nowadays it has a car-free village centre, with cobbled streets and courtyards, allowing tourists to get a real sense of what the Lake District is all about.

Ashness BridgeAshness Bridge

Technically not within Southlakes (it sits to the south east of Derwentwater). It has the distinction of being the most photographed bridge in the world - or so legend has it.

From nearby 'surprise view' you have an uninterrupted view across Derwentwater and onto the Solway and the distant shores of Scotland.
