Use our Lake District Travel Guide to plan your next Holiday in the Lake District

Our Lake District Travel Guide includes… Places to stay, things to do, where to eat and drink and walks in the Lake District

When you think of the Lake District, it’s difficult not to conjure up an image of vast and varying spectacular landscapes. From mountainous backdrops to fast-flowing waterfalls, dramatic lakes to heather-clad moorland, it truly is the beating heart of picturesque Cumbria.

The beloved National Park is one of the UK’s most popular, with principle towns like Kendal, Keswick and Windermere attracting visitors all-year-round.

The Lake District is a fantastic destination to visit year-round, no matter what your tastes and interests. If you prefer a quieter, more secluded holiday, try one of the quieter hamlets amongst the rolling countryside.

Explore the the many tarns, meres and waters that encompass the National Park, including the tranquil Wast Water and Buttermere. Take the family to The World of Beatrix Potter, where they can learn about the author and her famous creations.

Enjoy relaxing break, an adventure, an outdoor pursuit or a rural retreat, our Lake District Travel Guide will have something for you.
