Summer in the Lake District holiday cottages

Summer in the Lake District

The Lake District is the perfect place to spend your summer holidays. Our welcoming towns and villages are set in a most magnificent and unique landscape of lakes, mountains, forest and fells, offering the perfect backdrop to your holiday.

Summer in the Lake District

With summer comes the longest days of the year, giving you hours and hours to explore and enjoy all that the National Park has to offer.

Simple Pleasures


From the simple pleasure of walking, to taking to the water in a hire boat or maybe trying out some of our more adrenaline-fuelled activities such as tree top scrambles, zip wires or mountain bike trails, there is something for everyone.



Our towns and villages offer great shopping and entertainment with great venues such as ‘The Theatre on the Lake’ at Keswick and the Brewery Arts Centre in Kendal, where you can catch a movie, see a great stand-up comedian or book for one of the many live gigs from rock to pop, rap, country and blues.

Dining out

Michelin food - oysters in a modern style.

Part of any holiday treat is dining out. The Lake District boasts some of the best restaurants and pubs in the country, with four of our chefs having won a prestigious Michelin award. L’Enclume in Cartmel is also the 2017 Good Food Guide’s number one establishment. With cosy pubs, boutique bistros and chic wine bars, the Lake District has got them all.
