Lake District breaks are back on the agenda!

Here at the Lake District Hotels Association, we’ve been so excited to welcome everybody back after five months of lockdown! Summer has been very busy so if you’re thinking of an Autumn or Winter break, you’ll want to get booking!

The teams at our hotels, attractions and experiences have been working really hard to ensure they meet the Covid-19 government guidelines, and have been so pleased with how respectful, patient and kind everyone has been. We’re proud to announce that we are ‘COVID-safe’, and will continue taking all the correct precautions until life gets a little more normal, whenever that is!

Thinking of a break in the UK with your family this October half term?

Then the Lake District is the perfect holiday destination. Living here we have to be adaptable to the weather. Whilst a freezing cold dip in Lake Windermere might not be ideal on chilly Autumn mornings (unless you really want to), we have so much more to offer. You could explore the fells and key landmarks of the Lake District National Park with Mountain Goat Tours, see how autumn breaks looked in years gone by at Windermere Jetty, or take a tipsy tour around the award winning Lakes Distillery.

For those adventure seekers amongst you, you can get the adrenaline pumping with a visit to Honister slate mine’s ‘Via Ferrata’ or go mountain biking in Whinlatter or Grizedale. And if it's raining, head to Beatrix Potter World, Lakeland Motor Museum or one of our amazing restaurants!

There’s so much to do in the Lakes at any time of year - it’s beauty doesn’t stop when the schools go back!

What’s your perfect excuse for a short break?

Perhaps you just want a break from the kids. Call a babysitter and treat yourselves to a luxury, adult only, romantic weekend getaway at one of our hotel and spa combinations. Or have you missed celebrating an important anniversary? Then celebrate in style this Autumn and Winter with our impressive range of hotels, attractions and restaurants to choose from. We promise you won’t get bored.

If you want to explore the Lakes as the leaves fall, but want to avoid the crowds, why not book a midweek stay this November? Don’t forget to pack your hat, scarf and gloves (and mask!).

Whatever your reason for coming to the Lakes, we are happy to have you! 2020 still has four months left - let’s make them fabulous!
