"Read the whole schedule, not just the upper part" Lake District National Park Transportation Tip by christine.j
Lake District National Park Transportation: 24 reviews and 32 photos
In summer there is a bus service connecting the ferry from Windermere with Near Sawrey. I decided to take the bus back down to the ferry, and went to the bus stop.
I checked the times and found that I had to wait only a few minutes. But the few minutes went by and still there was no bus. On the other side of the road, a bus had come and left.
It was only after standing there for about half an hour that I realized the schedule printed at the bus stop gave the times for both directions. Unfortunately for me the other schedule was printed first. I should have waited at the opposite bus stop!
So I had to cross the street and wait for another 30 minutes. Luckily it wasn't raining and I had a book to read. The bus showed up at exactly the scheduled time and took me back to the ferry.
When you look at the picture you can see it only say "bus stop", not where the bus is going to.
