If you’ve ever visited the Lake District before, you’ll understand why it has such a loyal following of visitors who return year after year to its dramatic mountainous landscapes and deep blue lakes.
The charm of the English National Parks rolls down the fells into the beautiful villages and towns nestled in the valleys below. The area is well-equipped for visitors with heaps of things to do whatever the weather! It’s also a place that truly caters to people of every age. With so much to do and see, we’ve listed below just some of the reasons the Lakes is the perfect place for a family reunion.
The Great Outdoors
No matter the age of your family, the Lake District offers scenery to explore like nowhere else in the UK. From high peak mountains, for the adventurers out there, to gentle walks around one of the national park’s 16 lakes – packing a picnic and getting the whole family out for a walk together is the perfect way to enjoy the fresh air and catch up.
If sailing or water sports are your thing, then you’ll be spoiled for choice. From kayaking to sailing, windsurfing to rowing, the Lakes, unsurprisingly, offers a wealth of water-based activities for the whole family. Encourage your children to try something new, or set off on a kayaking adventure all together to really immerse yourself in the stunning surroundings.
Work Up an Appetite
The Lake District is full to the brim of charming cafes, traditional country pubs, fish and chip shops and amazing ice-cream eateries to keep the whole family full of yummy food throughout your stay. Why not shop in the local shops, come home and cook up a Lake District feast together at your holiday home with Cumberland sausage, Cartmel sticky toffee pudding, Grasmere gingerbread and, of course, some Jennings ale to wash it all down!
