Holiday Spotlight – The Lake District

Thursday, February 9th, 2012

England has many hidden treasures, and none are more beautiful than the stunning peaks and troughs of the Lake District. The beautiful region in the North of England is host to some of the most breathtaking scenery in Europe.

Vacations in the Lake District can be as active or as restful as you wish. Keen walkers are in their element with acres of countryside and a variety of popular walks including the walk up Helvellyn peak, a favourite with walking enthusiasts.

The local countryside around Kendal is a designated Area of Outstanding Beauty so visitors can be assured that scenery will not disappoint. And due to the high calibre of the surroundings, most of the accommodation in the Lake District is of a very high standard, with the majority of the hotels 4 or 5 stars.

For visitors who are looking for a more active vacation there is plenty to keep them occupied.

Kendal has the Museum of Lakeland Life & Industry while Penrith town has Penrith Castle, dating back to the 14th century and built as a defence against raids from the Scottish.

Lake Windermere is arguably the most popular natural attraction in the Lake District and is the largest of the lakes in the area. Water sports and boat trips are available including ferry crossings to Hill Top where holiday makers can visit the home of famous children’s author Beatrix Potter and the location for the recent Hollywood film about Potter’s life.

Culture lovers can visit La Galerie d’Art in Bowness. This stunning art gallery has regular exhibitions of original paintings by both local and international artists.

For an idyllic vacation that combines luxury, character and scenery the Lake District is sure to deliver. For a list of our favourite luxury hotels, check out our recent article ‘Top 5 Best Luxury Hotels in the Lake District
