Where to stay in Lake District National Park

About Lake District National Park

Famed for its glacial lakes, rugged mountains and charming market towns, Lake District National Park is considered one of England’s most scenic destinations. It’s carved by an extensive network of walking trails and is a deservedly popular destination for rock climbing on its high mountain crags.

Cruise the picturesque waters of Lake Windermere in the southern part of Lake District National Park or venture into the Leven Valley along the Haverthwaite Steam Railway. If you’re travelling with kids, don’t miss a visit to Bowness-on-Windermere and the World of Beatrix Potter where her children’s stories are brought to life.

One of the best ways to explore Lake District National Park is on foot, as it’s home to a variety of trails that range from short and easy to challenging, all-day hikes. Soak up the spectacular views along the Newlands Horseshoe, follow the Roman High Street Circuit to Angle Tarn or conquer England’s highest peak, Scafell Pike.

Getting there

Lake District National Park is around 1.5 hours’ drive from Newcastle International Airport, Leeds Bradford Airport or Manchester Airport. Trains stop at Windermere railway station in the south and Penrith railway station in the north while buses travel throughout Lake District National Park.
