Visit the Lake District
One of the UK’s most popular holiday destinations, the Lake District is home to England’s tallest mountain (Scafell Pike) and deepest lake (Wastwater) - and is a place of breathtaking natural beauty.
In stark contrast to the Yorkshire Dales, the Lake District boasts a lusher, greener (and wetter) feel.
This national park spans over 2,300 square kilometres and is home to 12 of the largest lakes in England. There’s also over 3,000 kilometres of rights of way where you can stretch your legs in stunning surrounds.
And the best bit is that it’s only around 30 minutes from our Yorkshire holiday park!
Explore the Lakes
Despite its title, only one of the lakes in the Lake District is called that by its name (Bassenthwaite Lake) with all the others – such as Buttermere, Coniston Water and Windermere – being meres, tarns and waters. As such it’s a great place to get out onto the water! Here you can enjoy everything from a steam boat trip to a kayaking adventure as well as mountain biking, rock climbing and fell running. The Lakes really is the place to be for those who love the great outdoors.
From gentle lake-side strolls to exhilarating climbs that will leave you breathless – the Lake District is home to dozens of walking routes and trails. There’s routes for walkers of all ages and abilities. Want to know more? Visit the Lake District’s official website for details of some of the most popular walks.
