Autumn Break In The Lakes – what to see and do on your visit
The Perfect Autumn Break In The Lakes
Everyone loves a good holiday. Whether it’s a week or two in the sun in the summer or a quick getaway in the spring, people love escaping their city lives for a few days and swapping the hustle and bustle for calmer, more tranquil settings.
The Lake District is a timeless favourite for UK holidaymakers looking for a simple, spontaneous trip away for a few days and there’s towns, hotels, and activities to suit everyone from families and couples, all the way to adventurers, explorers, and, most importantly, dog-walkers!
We’ve put together a guide to help out each different type of holidaymaker that might head up to the Lakes – check out our top romantic, family, and pet-friendly Lake District Hotels below!
Romantic Getaways Autumn Break In The Lakes
Couples looking to escape and spend some quality time together will find exactly what they’re looking for with a trip to the Lake District – there’s breath-taking scenery, elegant hotels, and romantic activities to take part in that’ll bring you closer together than ever before.
Selecting our top romantic hotel in the Lakes was a really easy choice to make – it’s Lodore Falls & Spa.
After its recent renovation, it’s quickly became one of the most luxurious holiday options in the entire region, sporting an outdoor pool with hot tub features, steam rooms, and high-end spa treatments that’ll leave you feeling refreshed and relaxed for your days of exploring the local area.
Located close to Keswick, you’ll also have the opportunity to discover more about one of the most vibrant towns in the Lake District during your stay at Lodore Falls – be sure to explore the surrounding fells and hiking trails, as well as a tour of Derwentwater!
Family Orientated Autumn Break In The Lakes
Staying in Keswick for the family-friendly theme, few places in the Lake District offer as wide a variety of opportunities as this quaint town does. If you’re after walking routes, you’ll find everything from beginners trails to advanced hikes, or for a bite to eat there’s plenty of cute cafes and family-run restaurants to keep your hunger at bay after a long day of exploring with the kids.
For the adults of the group, the Lakes Distillery is just a stone’s throw away from Keswick, so you can check out the process that goes into making your favourite drinks and sneak yourself a quick taster too.
Bring the Dog
We know that going on holiday as a dog-owner isn’t always as easy as it is for others – you can’t just drop everything and go for the weekend as somebody needs to look after the pooch, and there aren’t always willing dog sitters on hand at such short notice.
Inn On The Square in Keswick solves to dog issue for you; you can bring them along to one of their dog-friendly rooms, relax with them in the pooch-permitting lounge, then take them with you as you explore the surrounding valleys!
Your dog is sure to love all of the fresh air and open spaces there are to run around in, particularly if they’re a city dog that’s used to the concrete pavement and cramped houses. Your Lakes trip can be a vacation for both yourself and the dog!
If you’re heading to Inn On The Square, be sure to check out the Brossen Steakhouse that’s just downstairs – they’re an AA Rosette Award- Winning restaurant that serves some of the tastiest steaks, fish dishes, and veggie options you could ever wish to come across! It’s the perfect way to cap off any Lake District trip.
