Why visit the Lake District and Lancashire for your summer 2021 holidays?
The Lake District is one of the most beautiful places in the UK and is well worth a visit for your summer 2021 holidays. It has some of the most stunning scenery in the country, beautiful Lake District villages and a myriad of places to eat and drink and things to see and do. The contrast of Morecambe Bay and The Midland, and the close proximity of Williamson Park, the City of Lancaster and the Forest of Bowland enjoyed by Lancaster House provide a lovely Lancashire variety. Whether you are planning to visit with your family and kids, your partner or your friends, our hotels will offer locations that you are guaranteed to fall in love with.
The many walks
According to the Lake District, around 15.8 million people visit each year - a figure that speaks for itself. One of the top reasons for this is the many walks and trails you can take. You can hike Scafell Pike, which is the highest mountain in England, or simply take long walks around the lakes themselves. Ask at hotel reception for a walking map of the area and the best routes to take, our friendly team members will be more than happy to advise.

Hire a boat and spend the day leisurely bobbing on the water, or opt for something more adventurous like water skiing, wakeboarding, paddleboarding or experience one of our top 10 UK tourist attractions on Windermere Lake Cruises. There are many photo opportunities, amazing Lake District views and historic sites to explore, such as William Wordsworth’s house and gardens and places of special interest to visit, and don’t forget Hilltop and The World of Beatrix Potter Attraction which is very popular with children and those who love the world famous tales of Peter Rabbit and friends.
