Famous for the breathtaking mountains, hillsides and lakes that give this county its name, you may be surprised to know that you can also find plenty of beaches here, making the Lake District one of the most popular UK holiday destinations, and one that draws 15.8 million visitors every year.
A trip to the Lake District has to include a visit to two of its most iconic landmarks: the Old Man of Coniston and Scafell Pike. However, if you don’t plan on travelling that far once you’ve arrived at our Lakeland Leisure Park there are plenty of other amazing lakes and mountains closer by that will still give you the full experience of this remarkable region.
This area is steeped in history and those with an interest in discovering more will be spoilt for choice: from abandoned mines around Honister and the ruined abbey of Furness, to the literary landmarks of Dove Cottage and Rydal Mount – both former homes of William Wordsworth.
Visitors of all ages will love a trip to The World of Beatrix Potter, a wonderful experience that brings Peter Rabbit, Mrs Tiggy-Winkle and the rest of Potter’s remarkable characters to life. Even if you’ve never read the books, you’ll surely find yourself enchanted by the magical world she created during a visit to this attraction.
From boat hire to bike hire and canoes to electric boats, there’s so much to do and see during a visit to the Lake District.
