Enjoy the calming influence of the Lakes.
A weekend or short break in the Lake District will definitely keep you satisfied, and especially when you stay at a warm and cosy Best Western Hotel.
The Lake District is highly recommended because of the:
- Ravenglass and Eskdale Railway
- World of Beatrix Potter - Bowness
- Muncaster Castle
- South Lakes Wild Animal Park
The stunning scenery and splendour, will hold your imagination captive as it has done with countless poets and writers over the centuries. From Beatrix Potters' tales about Peter Rabbit to Wordsworths daffodils, a Lake District holiday will allow your imagination to run free.
The Lake District National Park is actually made up of 19 individual and tranquil lakes and 25 peaks! These are some of the deepest lakes and highest mountains in Great Britain.
The Lake District is the perfect base for any short holiday break. Visit the imposing thirteenth Century Muncaster Castle and its famous owlery, take a nostalgic railway journey on the Ravenglass and Eskdale Railway that cuts through the dramatic scenery or take a leisurely Lakeland cruise and enjoy be captivated.
So what is there to do in and around the Lake District?
It literally has something for everyone; hire a bicycle for the day to allow you to see more, take a horse out for a trek to see the Lakes from a higher viewpoint, walk their hills, take a walk on the wild side at the South Lakes Animal Park.
