Lake District Tourist Information

Ullswater

Ullswater

Beloved by the romantic poets, the Lake District is Wordsworth Country, with other literary notables linked to the area including John Ruskin, Arthur Ransome, Beatrix Potter and legendary fell walker Alfred Wainwright. The great 20th Century artist Kurt Schwitters also spent time here, creating his famous Merzbarn around Ambleside.

Stay in Lake District B&Bs with fell walks from your door or luxury lakeside hotels with spa leisure facilities and in-house restaurants. From B&Bs and holiday cottages to traditional inns with rooms and budget caravan and camping parks, the Lake District offers a fantastic choice of accommodation at great value prices.

Base yourself in a Georgian port on the Cumbria Coast or stay in charming specialist shopping hotspots like Cartmel, Kendal and Ambleside. Historic border city Carlisle with its spectacular castle and cathedral makes a great gateway base on to World Heritage Site Hadrian’s Wall, a section of which is within Cumbria.

Take a boat trip on one of the Lake District’s famous lakes and soak up the dazzling landscapes, acclaimed arts centres and an exceptional festival programme and book Lake District accommodation now.
