If nothing else David, you have stirred us into deciding it is the Lakes in October
Staying at Whitehaven by the look of it
Well you are on to a winner, Lake Bassenthwaite is the only lake in the Lake District. All the others are tarns, waters or meres. People tend to say and the misnomer seems to be continuing onto maps even,Windermere is the largest lake but as can be clearly seen it is a mere and not a lake.
Mere is a description of the type of lake that the water is.
(As you were. Pedant button off)
Quote: Mere in English refers to a lake that is broad in relation to its depth, e.g. Martin Mere. A significant effect of its shallow depth is that for all or most of the time, it has no thermocline.
So 'Lake Windermere' is, strictly, tautologous - like saying 'Lake Bassenthwaite lake'
I used to go regularly to the Lakes some years ago but not done so recently. I'm told it is very touristy now.
It has been very touristy since the station at Windermere was built and linked to the railways

I blame Wordsworth and the railways.
and that bloke who nicked his name from a Thwaites Beer... err.... Wainwright...
Makes think that CB must have been born in the 17thC.
I blame the Lake District.
And the Romans building their blooming roads over Hardknott Pass and all - spoiled the ambiance it did...
What was the ambulance doing up there?
