memorable autumn breaks in the lake district
Why autumn breaks in the lake district are highly recommended
Autumn breaks in the Lake District combine two of the greatest aspects of holidaying anywhere in the world: breathtaking scenery and exceptional, traditional hospitality.
The landscape comprises large expanses of water that are brimming with watersport opportunities or more sedate cruises. Between the lakes the rolling mountains harbour all sorts of interesting landmarks, such as beautiful waterfalls and ancient stone circles, as well as the extremely contemporary cuisine offered in the many tranquil pubs and restaurants.
You can also discover England’s highest mountain, Scafell Pike (978 metres).
What are the recommended autumn breaks in the lake district?
How about two nights at Londeth Howe Country House Hotel, located next to Windermere, England’s largest lake? Use this as a springboard for lake tours, including castle and mountain pass visits, together with two breakfasts and two dinners. One highlight is a trip to the remains of a Roman hill fort, 1,000 feet high. You can also enjoy a trip on the famous Ravenglass and Eskdale miniature railway. Prices start from £261.
