Relax in the Lakes

If you’re looking for a more laid back short break then gentle strolls through the many beautiful parks. Rothay Park alongside the flowing River Rothay with views of Loughrigg.

Choosing a place to eat is a hard decision, with so many high quality restaurants and cafes. You will have to return to the area again to try them all!
