Don't forget the stupid 10 knot limit on Windermere now. I sail there quite regularly, and there are hardly any motorboats there now, everything around the lake has died due to the restriction. There are hundreds of campsites around, and most have good facilities however.This
is a good site with loads of info. Over the past few years I've done my DofE round the LD and despite never having been to a lake district lake
ever, it's a gorgeous place
