There are so many places to visit in the UK’s most popular national park that your time will be well spent passing a day or two in the region. Fortunately, it’s only a short drive from Kirkby Lonsdale, so you can enjoy visiting the Lake District from the comfort of our luxury suites.

Foodies, history lovers, adventure seekers, and keen walkers will all love what’s on offer in England’s biggest national park. The long glittering stretch of Windermere is the closest lake to Kirkby Lonsdale, and its miles of shoreline and water offer opportunities to boat, swim, hike, picnic, and more! Surrounded by rolling mountains, pretty towns, and some of the best Lake District attractions available, there’s plenty to keep you busy. Or perhaps you’re seeking more cultural entertainment? Rest assured that there are plenty of these activities in the Lake District too. Visit some of the stately homes and museums in the area: there’s everything from a fascinating motor museum to a magnificent folly, Wray Castle. The South Lakes is also well known for its connection to two of the most famous writers in the world: Romantic poet William Wordsworth and children’s author Beatrix Potter. Visit their former homes to find out more about their work and lives.

We promised something for food lovers, too, and you won’t be disappointed. Treat yourself at a Michelin-starred restaurant in the Lake District, enjoy a lakeside pint, or travel the world on a culinary experience. There are so many options, your only difficulty will be choosing which ones to sample first!

Of course, the Lake District is well known for its walking opportunities and, if you’re keen on challenging hikes, then you’ll have plenty to aim for. The likes of Coniston and the Langdale Valley are home to towering craggy mountains, while you can find gentler routes around the shores of Windermere.
