Lake District holidays. Tours & holidays in 2016 & 2017

Although Windermere can get busy, especially during the summer, there are numerous lesser-visited shores where views and peace are completely unhindered. Tackling parts of walking routes, such as the Cumbria Way, will take you through some of the national park’s rarely seen areas with farmland, rivers and fells adding to the classic scenes you’ll find en-route from Ulverson to Carlisle. Lake District holidays make for an extremely romantic interlude either side of the summer months.

Cumbria Way walking holiday, Lake District
We had superb weather all the time, could not have been better. That plus a really nice route through stunning landscape made it perfect. (more)Helka Ahava
Most memorable: being dive bombed by a kestrel near Bassenthwaite. Fortunately we had walking poles... Most exciting: various parts of the walk were very beautiful (more)Stephen Allen

Lake District family activity holiday
It was truly amazing and we will definitely be going again....The outdoor activities team were very knowledgeable about the area so we learned lots about the history of the place, and the impact of their work. They were also great at educating the children (and adults) about nature and doing things naturally which we have carried with us. (more)Sandra Hilton
Very enjoyable and offered both something for adults and children. Although you were with a group for activities you could still do your own thing in the evening which meant that it still felt like an independent holiday. (more)Matthew Hawkins
We had a great guide for the week - Simon. Also Ghyll scrambling and rock climbing with the whole family (children from 4 to 19) was special...Great fun. (more)Michele Oliver
From £485 - £499 excluding flights
