Welcome to TA! There is a bus service up to Kendal from KL. It doesn't run very late, but is doable. From Kendal you can get the 555 ( local pub crawl bus) up the lakes towards Keswick. Here is the link to the KL bus. Enjoy your trip!

or a train from Kendal to Windermere.

Or not visit Windermere as its not all that, maybe Bowness if that what you mean...and only for a short stay stay as pricey as hell.

This may have already happened, but if not one idea might be to drive up the A591, come off at the Brettargh Holt roundabout (still A591) and take the first right towards Sizergh Castle. There's a large area you can park on immediately on the left, and a bus stop back on the main road that (I assume) the 555 stops at.

Coming back, note that the bus stop the other side of the road has been moved, and is now on the sliproad down to the roundabout where the bus comes off the A590 from Kendal. It's a couple of minutes walk back through the underpass to your vehicle.
