In order to get to the Hawksmoor Lakeland Guest House, many people drive along the A591. This major road into Windermere is now set for an upgrade, with more than £2 million set aside.
Through early December, drop-in sessions were held so that members of the public could have their say and be involved in improvement planning and in making suggestions to be considered.
Access to Lake District B&B accommodation will be easier than ever once the upgrade goes ahead, with routes being improved for cars and for buses. Walkers and cyclists are also set to benefit from the improvement, making this beautiful part of the Lake District even easier to enjoy.
What will the upgrade offer?
With travel routes upgraded, access to tourist attractions in and around Windermere will be easier than ever before. The Lake District Visitor Centre is one visitor attraction that will benefit, with other areas to be made more accessible including Low Wood Bay, Brockhole and Grasmere, along with Glebe Road in Bowness-on-Windermere.
Britain's Favourite Road
The A591 was voted Britain's Favourite Road. Tourists visiting the many wonderful attractions in Windermere and surrounding areas will travel through hilly scenes and peaceful, quaint Lake District villages. Attractions to visit along this popular stretch of road include Ambleside Roman Fort, Rydal Mount, Dove Cottage and the Treetop Trek Lake District activity centre, all of which can be enjoyed during your visit to the area.
