There's lots more to do: take a memorable tour with Kankku Off Road Driving Adventures, scramble along the landscape with a canyoning and rapelling tour, examine the collection at Lakeland Motor Museum, and stay fit while traveling at Mayela Redondo - Holistic Therapist.

Penrith is a market town and civil parish in the county of Cumbria, England. Change things up with a short trip to The Lakes Distillery in Bassenthwaite (about 36 minutes away). And it doesn't end there: contemplate the waterfront views at Derwentwater, get interesting insight from Lake District Off-Road, stop by Braithwaite General Store, and trek along Catbells Lakeland Walk.

Getting from Windermere to Penrith by car takes about 1.5 hours. Other options: drive; or take a train; or take a bus. Expect a daytime high around 7°C in January, and nighttime lows around 3°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 9th (Sat) to allow enough time to drive back home.
