The lovely Lake District

The Lake District is both the UK’s largest and favourite national park, with it having over 15 million visitors each year. Its rugged mountains, serene lakes and beautiful woodland provide the perfect backdrop for hikes, cycling and boating.

There are a wide range of activities which you and your family can take part in. For those who fancy a challenge, you can attempt the 978-metre climb of Scafell Pike, England’s highest mountain. While those who would prefer a more relaxed walk could venture to the extraordinary Aira force waterfall which offers a true display of power and beauty.

There are a multitude of fantastic campsites in the Lake District, however we want to draw your attention to Keswick Camping & Caravanning Club Site which overlooks Derwentwater. While its picturesque views are unparalleled for those who want to pitch up and relax, it is also one of the best campsites in the Lake District for kayaking and windsurfing, as crafts can be launched directly from the campsite’s shoreline.

Following a day of adventures, with Keswick town being only a short walk away, this quaint town is host to some fantastic restaurants and pubs for you to try.

We would recommend trying Brossen Steakhouse, which has been awarded an AA Rosette for its culinary excellence. The restaurant focuses on locally sourced produce, handpicked for their amazing flavours and only the very best mouth-watering meat.
