Lake Windermere or Is it ?

Lake Windermere or Is it ?
Known as "Winander Mere" or "Winandermere" until at least the nineteenth century.
Its official name is Windermere, and not "Lake Windermere" .
The only body of water in the National Park with "Lake" in its name is Bassenthwaite Lake.
Windermere has been one of the country’s most popular places for holidays and summer homes since 1847.

"Just to add to historical confusion",
Windermere is within the County of Cumbria, which can be found in NorthWest England, and entirely within the Lake District National Park.
The word "Windermere" translates as "Vinandr's lake", from the Old Norse name Vinandr and Old English mere, meaning,,,,,,,,,,,, Wait for it. "Lake".
