Plan a group holiday in the Lake District  

A designated World Heritage Site, the Lake District sits within the county of Cumbria and was a favourite haunt of many famous names, including William Wordsworth, Beatrix Potter and John Ruskin.

Numerous outdoor pursuits can be enjoyed here, from walking through no end of glorious scenery, to horse riding, cycling, canoeing and climbing. A variety of fantastic activities that are perfect for Lake District group holidays.

Coniston Water is a popular spot, where visitors will find water sports, bike hire, cafés and Brantwood, John Ruskin’s former home, which is open to the public. Windermere is another of the more famous lakes; 10 and a half miles long it is England’s largest and offers no end of activities, both on the lake and the surrounding villages which include Ambleside, Waterhead and Bowness-on-Windermere.

Ullswater boasts glorious mountain scenery, where walkers can take on the challenge of climbing Hellvelyn and you can hop on board an Ullswater Steamer for a scenic tour of the lake.

The North Lakes provide a more peaceful alternative: a number of smaller lakes and villages where you can amble through beautiful scenery, perhaps following some of the routes described by Alfred Wainwright. Derwentwater and Wastwater are also scenic spots, with numerous interesting towns and villages to visit nearby. For more tips and advice on group holidays in the Lake District, see our guide to the Lake District, or discover 10 of our most impressive Lake District cottages.
