The grounds extend to an acre of gardens surrounding the Grey Gables house. The gardens are beautifully planted with native grasses and shrubs. The Lawns at the front and back of the house lead down to the lake. There is plenty of space outside for a game of rounders or badminton. The jetty is the perfect place to tie up a kayak or two and gives direct access to the water.
The village of Windermere grew around the Windermere train station, about a mile and a half from the lake. The village was originally called Birthwaite, but the railway company decided to call the station after the lake. Launches an Steamers operate from Bowness Bay to Waterhead at Ambleside, and Lakeside at the southern end. At the southern end of the lake is a pier, the Aquarium of the Lakes and the lakeside and Haverthwaite Railway
