Fewer places tick all the boxes for an enjoyable and memorable than a Lake District weekend breaks. Located entirely within the county of Cumbria in the North West region of England, the Lake District National Park is reached easily by rail on the West Coast Main Line and by road, on the M6, both connecting Scotland to the north and Lancashire to the south.
Additionally, there are many towns located throughout Cumbria to form a base from which to explore the stunning natural environment of the Lakes and Mountains that have inspired poets, writers, and lovers of the great outdoors for centuries.
Although justly famous as the home of the Lakes and the highest peaks in England, there is more to the Lake District than the scenery. A host of water sports activities on the Lakes and country sports in the large rural expanses are on offer.
Additionally there are many historic sites, and picturesque towns that have retained their charm, yet host a range of shops, cafes, bars and restaurants expected of a major tourist destination. Many people come to the Lake District for the spectacular scenery or for the outdoor activities. Others simply want to relax in an area which offers the perfect antidote to city life.
Many Lake District hotels and other accommodation options offer special weekend and short break packages incorporating a range of leisure pursuits such as spas and golf. Organised trips are popular too such as walking tours, boat trips, or discovering the the lakes poets or Beatrix Potter.
