The best things to do in the Lake District

August 15, 2019 Off By Lauren

In the UK, we’re got picturesque landscapes, rainy days and a lot of gorgeous cities. However, there is nothing that can compare to the beauty of the Lake District. You are extremely lucky if you choose to come here for a holiday. Not only is it the perfect place to get away from the world but you will find it is a great area to relax and just chill out. Once you have booked the perfect cabin for your trip, you may be considering what you can do to keep entertained whilst you are there. Well, here are our top suggestions.

Historical Trips

Whether you choose to go to the Rydal Mount, the place where William Wordsworth laid his hat, Hill Top, the home of Beatrix Potter or you go to Scafell Pike, the highest point in England, you can find that there are a lot of historical and gorgeous areas to visit. Take in the history and cultural value of the area by exploring famous spots. These will take a day trip at least! Just keep in mind that if you intend to travel up any large hills, mountains or just go on a normal walk to a historical spot, you may need to bring your rain jackets, boots and walking sticks. Otherwise, you may end up being soaked by the rain and have blisters that don’t go away for days. However, if you can endure this, you will find that visiting the different areas are worth it.

Picnic Spots

Whether you choose to go with your lover, family, friends or even one of the hottest London outcall Escorts now available, the lakes are famous for their gorgeous landscapes, therefore you need to take advantage of the beauty by going out for a picnic. Pack up your favourite snacks, a picnic blanket and bag and then set out on your journey to find a great spot to relax on. Some great examples include Coniston, Tarn Hows, Orrest Head, Latrigg, Lanty’s Tarn, Gummer’s How, Buttermere and Castlerigg Stone Circle. These areas all have a picturesque view of the lakes, the foliage, animals and floral spots. Once you find the best spot, you will never want to leave.

Being active

There’s nothing nicer than just taking in the beautiful sights of the lakes. With more than 3,100 kilometres of rights of way, that means you can explore the lakes to your heart’s content via bike, on the water or by foot. You can even join guided tours on the rambles or even on the tallest summits. Some of them are during the summer but, if you are feeling daring, you can even go out through the winter to brave the cold paths and see the beauty of the Lakes in winter. 

Fantastic Pubs

Even if you have rented out a cabin with a fully functioning kitchen for your trip, there is no harm in going a bit further out to see some of the best British pubs in the area. They survive amazing fish & chips, practically the staple of a British diet, but also have afternoon tea options with cucumber sandwiches, cakes, tea and potentially a cheeky glass of prosecco. Our favourite has to be “The Drunken Duck” has it also has an amazing array of beers. It’s the perfect place to have a family meal.

Creative Pursuits

With so many idyllic scenarios around, it’s hard not to feel inspired by the area. If you do feel inspired, why not take your favourite hobbies with you! Painting, writing or even small things like crocheting or knitting are the perfect things to do as you watch the beauty of the countryside. Most of the time it will end up raining in the Lake District, so this is a great way to get back to the things you love doing. You don’t want to go out in the rain, so stay indoors and remain cosy with your favourite activities.
