Locations

We have a superb range of hand-picked Lake District holiday locations. In the heart of the Lakes, there’s Windermere and Ambleside. These are two of the best known and most vibrant of the Lakeland towns.

If you are looking for somewhere a little more secluded, how about Ullswater in the north? Or Lakeside in the south, both are less populated and so offer a real taste of tranquility. Many of our large cottages are set in sprawling grounds, some with private fishing lake, boathouse and jetty. Or set within a private estate and gardens, giving your get-together the welcoming privacy that self-catering affords.

Needless to say all these locations all offer you amazing outdoor experiences. You can try fell walking, cycling, climbing and fun on the water. Step out of your large holiday home in the Lake District, breath in the fresh air and marvel at the sheer beauty of the Cumbrian countryside.

Activity ideas for large groups

Having a large cottage in the Lake District full of friends or family is great fun, but it also takes some thought; “how do you keep everybody happy?” “What shall we do tomorrow?” and so on. Well, here are some handy tips and ideas to get the ball rolling.

My Personal Sanctuary

Perfect for large groups marking a special occasion, exclusively with Lakelovers holidays you can book an indulgent beauty or spa treatment, from My Personal Sanctuary, brought to you and your guests in the comfort of your own holiday home! So, without having to leave the comfort of your relaxing Lakelovers holiday cottage treat yourselves to a heavenly back, neck and shoulders massage, de-stress with a top to toe scrub or unwind with hand and feet treatments. There’s many treatments to choose from for all occasions, whether you’re planning a walking week with sore muscles in need of relaxing, or a girlie special occasion, the packages and award winning products are sure to dissolve any aches, pains and stresses and are perfect for celebrating a truly special occasion, especially if followed by a glass of something bubbly!

Go Ape

If you are 10 years of age or more and if you are 4ft7” or taller, then the Tree Top Adventure at Go Ape in Grizdale is a great option for large groups of thrill seekers. During the Tree Top Adventure you will swing through the canopy of Grizdale Forest, “fly down” down zip-wires, “leap off a Tarzan Swing” and “tackle” exciting crossings.

Lake Cruises

Boat trips on one of the Lake District’s fine waters provide an altogether more relaxing way of spending time with your loved ones and a different way of taking in the views. At 14.8 square kilometers, Lake Windermere is the biggest stretch of water in the Lake District and is perfect for a cruise. While aboard your vessel, expect to be taken to secluded bays, wooded islands and to see some jaw dropping mountain scenery that can only be reached by boat – all while you relax with you friends and family. For a timetable of boat trips throughout the Lakes, including the quieter waters of Coniston and Derwentwater, click here and consider the private champagne and entertainment cruises on Ullswater as a sure way of impressing your loved ones!

Picnic

If the weather is fine, then what better way to spend time outdoors than to arrange a picnic? Maybe you could spend some time that morning planning and buying the food locally to put in your picnic basket. There are a range of fabulous delis to choose from in the Lake District, like Lake District Deli for example, where you can get wild game, smoked fish and lots of other artisan goodies. Once you’ve stocked up, then you have the enviable task of choosing a fabulous location for your picnic. Top tip don’t choose a spot that takes too long to get to if you are wanting a lavish picnic, with all those bags to carry you may end compromising your beautifully chosen location. Some famous spots include ‘Wordsworth Point’, Glencoyne Bay, Ullswater, where in April you can see the famous daffodils just a William Wordsworth would have seen which later inspired his famous work ‘I Wondered Lonely as a Cloud’.

Ghyll scrambling

If you decide you would like to do something a little bit different, ghyll scrambling is an exhilarating way to really experience the wonderful landscapes of the Lake District. Ghyll scrambling is essentially climbing a mountain stream. On your assent, expect to be jumping into plunge pools and scaling waterfalls. Safety equipment and clothing is provided and so all you have to do is turn up in the appropriate attire – take spare clothes and a big towel. There are lots of adventure companies offering ghyll scrambling, depending on where you are staying.

Of course, if in doubt, go for a nice long walk!
