Lake District Attractions and information

The Lake District in Cumbria, north-west England is one of the most scenic places to stay in the UK.

Whether you enjoy the quiet life; walking or hiking in the Fells or you prefer to climb mountains, attend country fairs or music festivals, you will find it all in the Lake District.

With a wider variety of scenery than any other area of its size in Britain, the Lake District is home to 16 major lakes, including England´s largest lake, Windermere. Towering above the lakes are some of England´s highest mountains, including Scafell, Helvellyn, Scafell Pike and Skiddaw.

If you prefer to take it easy on holiday, book into a romantic Windermere cottage with hot tub and make the most of your stay.

The Lake District offers excellent road access, with the M6 motorway passing close to the eastern side of the region, bringing day trips within easy reach of most towns in the Midlands and the north of England.

You will be spoilt for choice when it comes to things to do in the Lakes and whether you want to stay in your cottage or enjoy a pampering session in the spa, you are guaranteed a luxurious stay in one of England´s most beautiful settings. Imagine a romantic weekend, a honeymoon or a special occasion in Windermere, with a private hot tub.

The real beauty of the Lake District is in its rugged and unspoilt countryside, surrounding Windermere, Kendal, Grasmere, Keswick and Coniston, and if you want to get away from it all, there is no better place to visit. For culture vultures and lovers of the great outdoors, you can explore the region on foot, by car or by public transport, and it is well worth checking out the local events and festivals which take place throughout the year.

If you want to sample the finest Cumbrian fare, visit one of the local country inns, dotted temptingly around the region, or enjoy some home baked cakes and pastries in one of the many quaint cafés in Bowness and Windermere. Something of a foodie´s paradise, the Lake District boasts Michelin starred restaurants, gastro pubs and regular farmer´s markets where you can sample the delicious produce before you buy.

Romantic Windermere cottages with hot tubs are among the most popular places to stay in the Lake District.

Interactive exhibitions and attractions are great fun for all the family, and if you want to explore Windermere on foot, the walking routes range from easy to difficult, depending on your levels of fitness. One of the most popular ways to get around Windermere is to take a boat trip on a Windermere steamer across the lake, then hop on and off at places of interest, and walk some of the way around the lake shore.
