Looking for rest and relaxation? Head for a treatment at one of The Lakes’ luxury spas to detox, before browsing the shops and grabbing a coffee and cake. Or if you’re on the hunt for adventure, abseil down a cliff face, kayak on Lake Windermere, or hike up one of our famous mountains.

There’s no shortage of incredible things to do on last-minute holidays here in the Lake District. Start your trip with a cup of speciality coffee and a delicious handmade pastry from Lucia’s Bakehouse in Grasmere. Then head over to Glenridding, to catch the iconic Ullswater Steamer to Howtown, taking in the stunning views as you go. From here you can explore one of the quieter Lake District valleys, Martindale, to your heart’s content. Whatever time of year you escape to The Lakes, you’ll be guaranteed to find a moment of peace and quiet here.
After you’ve fully relaxed, it’s time to feel the thrill of The Lake District up close and personal! On day two of your trip, why not try your hand at an adventure sport like ghyll scrambling, which will leave you feeling exhilarated… and very wet! Before leaving The Lakes, you have to treat yourself to a pint and some great food in a quintessential Cumbrian pub. We recommend The Britannia Inn in Elterwater, where you’d be amiss not to sample their ‘Britannia Blonde’ speciality beer.
