The UK is one of the most unique places in the world when it comes to contrasting landscapes; whilst part of the country is dominated by huge cities with high skylines and dense populations, there are areas of true natural beauty and tranquillity to be found just a few hours away. Take the Lake District as an example – this beautiful region is one of the most picturesque places in Europe, with rolling hills and peaks as far as the eye can see and stunning lakes that have a mesmerising stillness, almost like something out of a painting.

Our dog friendly rooms extend a warm welcome to four-legged friends too, meaning you’ll never have to leave your canine behind! Simply add this option during the booking process and enjoy a wonderful stay with your dog by your side (£15 per dog per night).

All of this can be experienced in just a few hours of driving from major cities such as Manchester, Liverpool, and Leeds! As you can probably already tell, we absolutely adore the Lake District and think it makes an ideal holiday destination for anyone that’s looking to escape their busy city life and swap the hustle and bustle for some fresh air and outdoors time.
