The Lake District has always been a popular destination for holidaying in the UK.
With its miles of unadulterated hillsides and spectacular glistening lakes, it’s not hard to see the appeal.
However, it seems that as holidaying abroad becomes more and more expensive, more families head to the Lakes for a bit of R&R.
Here are a few of the great and varied places to stay in the Lake District, all of which have been helped on their road to success by expert hospitality finance advice from Stewart Hindley and Partners.
If you are travelling to the Lake District to soak up the great outdoors then Ambleside, situated right in the middle of the National Park, is likely to be on your radar.
If a fabulously situated B&B in the heart of Ambleside is what you’re after, then Wordsworths is a hidden gem.
Wordsworths is a short walk to the popular Lake Windermere where you can catch a steamer or enjoy the spectacular views. If you’ve had enough of the great outdoors, then you can also head on over to The Salutation Hotel Health Club & Spa as guests receive a free pass.
If you want wildlife at your door, then Forest How, just outside of Muncaster, is a good option. Whatever room you stay inn, you’ll be greeted by spectacular views across fields to the village of Eskdale Green and the fells beyond each morning. The 5 acres of land surrounding the Victorian property are frequently visited by roe deer, red squirrels and even barn owls.
If you want to challenge yourself, then Forest How is just a few miles from Wasdale and Scar Fell Pike and the steep Hardnott pass leading to Langdale.
A great one for families and couples alike, is the Elton Guest House in the peaceful Victorian town of Grange-over-Sands. A limestone building from around 1840, the Elton is a beautiful place to spend a long weekend, or even a full week, as you visit the many sights in the area.
Being so close to Windermere, and a stone’s throw from The Grange Hotel, the Elton Guest House is perfectly placed for wedding guests as well as tourists.
