Splurge in the Lakes

A trip to Cumbria’s finest Michelin starred restaurant L’Enclume, in the historic village of Cartmel, in the South Lakes, is certainly worth saving up for. Enjoy the sample menu here and you’ll get a real taste of Cumbria as ingredients are famously foraged from the local countryside or selected from their own 12 acre farm.

There are many luxury eateries, independent boutiques and unique outdoor experiences across the Lake District for you to enjoy if you’ve budgeted well.

• Of course there are other ways you can save money, for example, instead of having lunch at a pub, cafe or restaurant, prepare a picnic and eat al fresco while enjoying the beautiful views.

• For a cheap evening meal, seek out a good fish and chip shop, takeaway pizzeria or look for early bird menus.

• In terms of getting around, Lakelovers budget holiday cottages in the Lake District are located across the region, choose the location carefully and then try to walk or cycle to local attractions, saving money on fuel for the car or public transport costs.

• If you are a keen walker or climber, then it is easy to get carried away whilst on holiday and buy yourself a new pair of boots or the latest walking jacket, however, if you plan in advance then you can save money by shopping around to get the best deal. Finally, don’t forget that with Lakelovers dogs go free, another saving for you to consider!
