Cumbria–The Lake District is the ideal getaway for families, whether for a fun-filled day trip or a longer holiday. The scenery is stunning of course, from the awe-inspiring mountains to the gentle valleys, from the charming villages to the bustling market towns. What’s more there are loads of different things to do – so many that you might need to come back more than once…
We have haunted castles, amazing mazes, wild wildlife parks, and fascinating history and heritage to discover. Swing through the tree tops like Tarzan, delve underground in the darkest mines, and come face to face with the inhabitants of the underwater world of the lakes and seas.
There’s a huge range of activities to keep even the most energetic member of your family occupied: horse riding, windsurfing, quad biking, paintballing, rock climbing, dinghy sailing, archery, canoeing and more.
Or if you fancy something a bit less high octane what about a relaxing picnic and a paddle? Take to the water in a rowing boat, or grab your fishing nets and dip in the rock pools at the seaside. The lakes, valleys, coasts and moors of Cumbria–The Lake District are yours to explore – by lake steamer, bike, ferry, steam train, open top bus, canoe, or on foot.
There is also a whole raft of unmissable events : whether you fancy traditional Lakeland sports like wrestling and fell racing, or live music and arts, or the colour and vibrancy of one of our street carnivals.
And if all this activity has made you hungry , there is no better place to be. Cumberland sausages, cream teas, sticky toffee pudding and gingerbread should tempt your appetite. You can even take a tour to see how ice cream and chocolates are made.
By now you’ll want to rest your weary head. The choice of places to stay in Cumbria is huge. Choose from luxurious hotels and cosy B&Bs, from well-equipped caravan and camping parks, comfortable self-catering cottages and tourist hostels or camping barns. Or for a true country feel stay on a farm. Wherever you choose you can be sure of a warm welcome.
