• 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.

Finally, don’t forget that with Lakelovers dogs go free, another saving for you to consider!
