Meet our team and get the low-down from the locals
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.
There's no denying that the Lake District is known for it's gorgeous landscapes and for what it can offer in the outdoors but there's also so much adventure behind closed doors. When the weather is a little sad, you can guarentee to find something brilliant to do indoors and suprisingly, outdoors too. Here we have a few recommendations of what you can get up to in the Lake District, rain or shine.
Embarking on a series of adventures in a setting that holds a myriad of inspiration and beauty is something you’ll struggle to turn down. The Lake District is famous for being “the birthplace for modern rock climbing” and rightly so, as every type of climbing is available to visitors in one exhilarating form or another. It’s not only the ideal place to begin your climbing career, but it’s host to a large variety of unforgettable experiences that you’ll never forget.
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.
