The same can be said of shopping; you’ll find a wide range of boutique shops, cafes and restaurants to choose from across the Lake District. From the stylish boutiques of Bowness-on-Windermere, foodie treats in Cartmel and a bustling mix of high street and independents in Keswick, the Lake District has it all!
If culture is your thing, you certainly won’t be disappointed with a holiday to this preserved National Park, which is steeped in history and reflected in the museums, galleries and open houses that are scattered across the District.
“In the summertime when the weather is fine” your horizons expand yet further, as there’s a busy calendar of country shows and festivals to be taken into account. From the now world-famous Kendal Calling music festival to the Cumbrian Steam Gathering; the Hawkshead Show, where you can sample a taste of traditional Cumbria life; pony-trekking, lake cruises, high-ropes and 4×4 off-road experiences; peaceful walks and challenging climbs, there’s plenty to make your holiday a dream come true!
