The Two Together Railcard has been a fantastic addition to the fleet of discounted railcards offered by National Rail.
This railcard means the person who purchases the card, along with the person they travel with the most, receive a 1/3 off journeys with the cost of the card being just £30 a year. In one lengthy journey alone the card will pay for itself but those who commute with a friend or colleague, well it equates to quite some savings during the year.
With better, faster train services to Oxenholme – The Lake District, visitors from as far as London can travel by train to the Lake District far quicker than driving. Not only quicker but far more relaxed!
This new Two Together railcard is surely going to aid the amount of people travelling by train to Windermere. Windermere has excellent transport links in various forms to so much of South Cumbria especially in these summer months. Just picture this, a relaxed journey from the moment the train is embarked. Eat and drink when you wish, chat amongst yourselves or read a book or newspaper. The holiday or short break starts as soon as the train departs from the station.

And onto where to stay? Well it has to be Windermere. Step right off the train or bus and you’re right there and have a choice of hotels and B&B’s. Applegarth Villa Hotel & Restaurant in Windermere offers the height of luxury and romance yet right in the centre of Windermere. A one minute walk from the station and this hidden gem of a hotel has rooms to suit all budgets but the luxury hot tub suites are what to look out for. Not seen from the road, these suites have views across the lovely park and to the fells beyond. Visit https://www.lakesapplgearth.co.uk to view the rooms and book.
15 minutes from Windermere is Bowness and Lake Windemere. There why not choose to travel by boat to Waterhead for Ambleside or up to Lakeside and Newby Bridge on one of the Windermere Lake Cruises ferries. Looking to do some fell walking? Then from Waterhead there is the fabulous Loughrigg walk or lots from Windermere itself.
