We, at South Lakes Hotels, are all lucky enough to live and work in this beautiful part of the country so let us introduce ourselves and tell you about the things that we like best. From favourite walk to favourite snack, from favourite day out to favourite pub, we'll tell you what we like and why.
...and we're not selfish, if you have a favourite thing to do, see, eat or visit in the Lake District, please tell us about it.
With so many wonderfully quaint pubs and inns scattered around the Lake District, it's near impossible to pick out only a few. Most still hold a traditional English pub character whilst some have been revamped into leading-edge establishments. There's somewhere to suit every need, whether it be a generous homely meal, a refreshing beverage or a quick mid-walk pit stop. Here we have picked out just a handful of local favourites that are guarenteed to take your fancy.
The Arts in and around the Lake District are certainly forces to be reckoned with, and it’s all down to beautifully unique locations and an incredibly high standard of production and design. The Lake District isn’t short of spectacular arts venues, but they each have their own distinctiveness and charm. A setting, which has been inspiring well-known names in the Arts world for years, is host to some of the leading annual events and theatre houses in Britain.
Famous for its stunning scenery, its majestic mountains and dazzling lakes, Windermere and the Lake District attract over 16 million visitors each year. Walkers, hikers and lovers of the countryside can choose from a wide range of pubs, cafés, bars and restaurants in and around the Lake District serving real ales and hearty Cumbrian cuisine.
