10 Lake District Attractions
With so many Lake District Attractions, we sometimes need to remind ourselves to get out and about. Although a package break at one of our spa hotels in the Lake District come with private hot tubs, you still have to dry yourself out sooner or later!
Take a look at the following Lake District attractions, all of which are open throughout the summer.
Wray Castle, Windermere
The mock-Gothic stately home dates back to 1840 and is ideal to visit during a package break in Windermere. Especially during the summer, with plenty of things to do within the grounds.
Ravenglass and Eskdale Railway
While the high-speed trains of today serve their purpose, there’s always going to be something special about riding on a steam train. So jump aboard and head off through the Lake District in style.
Beatrix Potter’s Hill Top Farmhouse
As well as visiting the World of Beatrix Potter in Windermere, head over to Hill Top in Near Sawrey. After the famous author passed away in 1943, the farmhouse was left to the National Trust, its doors opened to the public.
Lakeland Motor Museum
If you’re a motor enthusiast or just interested in the more obvious Lake District Attractions, then take a walk around the Lakeland Motor Museum.
Lakeland Climbing Centre
Perfect for the adventurous on a rainy day, the Lakeland Climbing Centre is the chance to practice your skills in a safe environment.
Mirehouse and Gardens
As for those other popular attractions, Mirehouse and Gardens were named Visitor Attraction of the Year at 2017 by Cumbria’s Tourism Awards. Two years on and they continue to welcome 100’s of visitors each summer.
Rydal Mount and Gardens
Another historical house in the Lake District proud of its outdoor area is that of Rydal Mount. Once the family home of poet William Wordsworth.
Honister Slate Mine
At the Honister Slate Mine, you can enjoy an underground tour of the mines, gaining an insight into the industry. Alternatively, up above there’s a climbing course suspended 1,200 feet above the valley.
Castlerigg Stone Circle
The English Heritage site is full of mystery and intrigue. Constructed at some point between the Neolithic and Early Bronze Ages.
Windermere Lake Cruises
Something very much in keeping with our spa hotels in the Lake District in terms of relaxation. You can embrace your surroundings with a trip on Windermere Lake Cruise. There’s nothing strenuous and it doesn’t involve any physical activity, just sit back and enjoy the views.
Spa Hotels in the Lake District
Aphrodite’s Spa Hotels in the Lake District aren’t just restricted to the main site. In fact, our spa hotel in Windermere has several more spa suites available.
