The Lake District is one of the few locations that is perfect to visit at any time of the year and for any length of time.
If you were thinking of taking a long weekend or a week’s break there are hundreds of things to do in the area for people of all ages.
Why not stay at one of the Lake District Hotel Group’s many hotels, scattered around the Lakes in the most picturesque parts.
Don’t want to leave your furry friend at home?
Keswick was voted as the UK’s most dog friendly town in 2012 and the Lake District as a whole is more than accommodating for them.
With hundreds of different walks to choose from you can be sure that you will have a sleepy pup by the end of the day.
The Lake District Hotel Group prides itself on being dog friendly, and will even provide dog beds and bowls to save you having to overfill your card. They do have a small supplement fee to cover the cost of having your well behaved dog to stay however it is arguable worth the small price to bring your pet on holiday with you.
The only thing to be aware of when taking your dog out with you is making note of all the signs on farmland. This time of year, lambing season, you need to be careful that you keep yours dogs on leads.
The Lake District Hotel Group’s many hotels can provide a fantastic place to lay your head between the hundreds of footpaths and trails recorded by Alfred Wainwright.
For example if you are staying at the newly refurbished hotel Inn on the Square in Keswick (promoting from July) the number of walks you can take straight from your doorstep is probably too many for you to fit in during your stay. This is an extremely popular walk due to its ease, and stunning views from the top. It is easily done in half a day, which gives you the rest of the time to get exploring Keswick or maybe taking a row on Derwent Water!
Why not visit www.wainwright-walks.co.uk/ and get planning your walks to help make sure you have a memorable visit (and not because you got lost!).
