Lake District Holiday Packages

Located in the England's Cumbria County, the Lake District is a photo op waiting to happen, loaded as it is with mountains, valleys, lake views and coastlines. The area is also a draw to those who love boating, hiking and village charm, since quaint cottages and stone walls are commonplace; if this isn’t pretty enough for you, just imagine your Lake District holiday near the glassy waters of Lake Windermere. Feel like reaching for a paddle already, don’t you?

Things to Do in the Lake District

Needless to say, you’ll want to explore the many lakes and valleys in the area—it’s named Lake District, after all—and take in the excitement of excursions on land and in the water. From cycling tours to water sports, the Lake District keeps you moving around and entertained. You can even slip in an educational adventure or two into your Lake District holidays, since the area is home to several historic attractions such as the Castlerigg Stone Circle and the Aughertree Fell Settlement. Visit historic homes and museums, including Beatrix Potter's Hill Top Farm and Gallery, which provides a peek inside the life of this famous children's author. Afterwards you can meander to the Stott Bobbin Mill, a fully working Victorian mill. Finally, be sure to explore one of the area's largest collection of freshwater fish. You can worry about the ins and out of hiring a driver or public transit…or you can be take in all the memorable views on your own time with one of Wotif’s Lake District car hire deals.

Shopping, Dining & Nightlife

Lake District packages just aren't complete without a bit of shopping. Check out districts near the Windermere railway station and in the nearby areas of Carlisle, Kendal, Ambleside and Barrow. Expect to find a range of venues from local markets providing regional produce and delectables, such as chocolates, meats, cheese, wine, gingerbread and the renowned toffee pudding. Yes, it’s real and it’s delicious.

We know you’re bound to be really busy testing out all the food shops...it’s a tough job, but someone’s got to do it, and hey, you’ll have heaps of cash left over when you book our Lake District holiday deals. Just be sure to save room for proper dining. From upper-crust eateries in Carlisle, Kendal and Borrow to local markets in Keswick and Cockermouth, the Cumbria county regions offer true variety. Now, we’re pretty sure you aren’t going to head home without at least picking up some kind of present for your sweetheart, your mates, or, y’know, us, so wander through the local shops for your choice of gifts, antiques, jewellery, fashion and specialty foods to peruse before taking on the nightlife.

You don't typically travel to the Lake District for the nightlife, but you can put on your dancing shoes and enjoy evening fun in nearby Keswick, which has an array of pubs and café bars with live music. You can also enjoy more subdued activities with the local theatre and cinema.
