Boutique hotels

Individually styled boutique hotels Lake District are a wonderful opportunity for any tourist, from business people to families to romantic couples, to have a comfortable stay in the famous location. Choose a boutique hotel right in the heart of the district to have access to the whole range of venues available including water sports centres, beauty salons, leisure clubs and others.

Restaurants and pubs

Even in this tough economy, tourists abound in the Lake District so rising prices because of lack of tourists is not the case with the location. Locals state that most of the pubs in the region “manage to keep the prices as best as possible in the current climate”. Besides, Wetherspoon is planning to open its first pub in the Lakes offering cask ale, long opening hours and good value for money.

Entertainment and activities

Those who are interested in a bit more than just marvelling at the beauty of the scenery can try a lot of exciting activities here. You can gain new skills during food smoking and woodland courses, or embrace your inner artist by capturing the Lake District view in your own watercolour painting. Dedicate some of your time to visit local attractions such as the World of Beatrix Potter, Blackwell House, Dove Cottage, Holker Hall, etc. For adventure lovers, there are opportunities to try water sports, clay pigeon shooting, hiking in the mountains and a lot more.

Whether it is the district’s natural beauty or a developed infrastructure and multiple entertainment options you are most attracted by, choosing the Lake District as a holiday destination is a great idea for many reasons.
