Locations and Attractions

Around 16 million people visit the Lake District every year. This bears testament not only to how popular the stunning countryside is, but also the warmth of the welcome holidaymakers receive. And the fantastic range of activities that there are on offer in the region – there truly is something for everybody.

Choose one of Lakelovers Lake District cottages sleeping 8 to 9 in Ullswater, for example, and you will find yourself surrounded by unrivalled beauty and tranquility. Ullswater itself is arguably the Lake District’s most attractive stretch of water. And whether viewed from the land or from one of its famous steamboats, it is hard to disagree when you see its magical majesty at first hand.

Our cottages in the Lake District sleeping 8 to 9 can also be found in Grasmere. Grasmere is an area of outstanding beauty and is steeped in history. It is associated with The Lake Poets and in particular William Wordsworth who moved there in 1799. Part of Wordsworth’s legacy can be experienced with a visit to the Grasmere Daffodil Gardens. There you can see the inspiration for some of Wordsworth’s most famous lines.

If it’s horses and hounds that will capture your imagination, then Cartmel may well be the place for you. Not only does Cartmel Racecourse offer horse racing and dog trials, but a range of other events, such as hosting music concerts from some of the biggest names in the business.

Whatever your interests are, you will satisfy your appetite at locations across the Lake District. Whether, as a large group, you decide to stick together or move around in smaller groups, you will never be stuck for things to do.
