Had a great visit to the Lakes. We hiked around several lakes and ate at some very nice places. Especially enjoyed visiting Wordsworth's house at Rydal Mount.

Whether you are going to sail, fell walk, climb, or just hang out and take in the season, the Lake District has it all. The only shame is that everyone else also knows this and so is crazy busy during school holidays. So why not wrap up, and go walking in the winter. Just sitting back and looking at the... More

Love the lake district although we find it expensive. We know where to go and where to eat to make our money go around. Lovely hotels all around the area but not cheap. We like to have 3 or 4 breaks a year so cost is important for us. We picnic alot and stay self catering and really have a... More

Very nice place for a city break. Make sure you have outdoor activities and accommodation. Need to be staying around the lake or hills to get the maximum excitements.

This is lovely pub with a smashing atmosphere. Very qurky inside and looking out over the village green. We've been in on a number of occasions as it's close to our holiday caravan. Despite trying many of the ales on offer, I've been sorely disappointed by the quality of the beer. Sadly, I have to say that this MUST be... More

Nothing matches the scenery that you encounter as you drive around the Lake District environs. Especially impressive is the very rural roads jutting through the Whinlatter Pass and the Honister Pass. Be prepared for very narrow roads with bypass pull over areas but the scenery is surreal. Hikers and bikers are frequently encountered on the roads. You need to be... More

Experienced one of the best drives through Hartnett Pass to Wast Lake. The scenery was stunning. If you only do one trip at the lakes do this one. Be warned though the roads, especially over the pass, are narrow. Not for inexperienced drivers however we did not feel in mortal danger and the scenery is worth the care and attention... More

Such a beautiful place which we will definitely be returning to. So many things to do - we spent all our time admiring the lakes & views. Our visit lasted from 23/05/14 to 26/05/14 during bank holiday weekend. We were very lucky with the weather as it was forecast to rain the whole time we were there, but it only... More

with narrow roads and plenty of walkers. We drove through, but it was obvious the normal way to visit is to stay and walk. Honister Pass is gorgeous, but very narrow, and takes a long time to cross and get back on a major road. Recommend coming from the Keswick side of the pass
