The Lake District is located in the north west of England and is renowned for its infinite hills and limitless lakes. It is a vast, mountainous region and has been well traveled, as it has fore mostly become an extremely popular holiday destination for any and all who enjoy the fresh air of the outdoors and the rewarding experiences of long hikes and cumbersome trails. If this is what melts your ice cream, then making a booking at one of many Lake District hotels is what you need to do today.
With rolling hills (or 'fells' as they are referred to in this part of the world) and beautiful, glistening lakes and tarns, anyone who belongs where cities are not will smile as the magnificent views and untarnished plains will feel right at home. Within the North West there are more than 60 lakes and tarns and over 200 fells to climb and explore, of which all can be walked as a opposed to climbed with ropes and harnesses etc. The terrain may not be described as harsh but definitely not that of a tropical rain forest. The shrubbery is the thick and dull and is not that dissimilar to that in many parts of Scotland. And it is very common in this type of topography to have the climate that it has.
Due to its proximity to the ocean and its undulating hills, the Lake District is probably the dampest part of England. March to June seem to receive the least rainfall as opposed to October through to January, where the rain doesn't seem to stop, but all year round the lower areas seem to get consistent precipitation. It can also be quite a windy part of England and the fog on the fells is also extremely common, however both of these conditions are customary to this style of terrain.
Lake District hotels are set amongst quite a legacy of historical significance. The area was once controlled by the Romans, and sheep farming was the predominate form of industry. To this day sheep farming is still a major part of the economy and it is also through these creatures that the land maintains its look that has attracted the horde of tourists that it does today. Mining of copper, lead, slate and graphite was done in these areas as well, but this ended at the late part of the 19th century.
When visiting the Lake District, one must take into account the area that one is in. Activities are boundless to the open mind and, being an outdoor area, things to do of an outdoors nature are in high abundance. When it comes to the main attractions, the list is far more specific. Most people spend their time walking the many fells or along the countless lakes, but there are more social things to do like the many boat trips around the larger lakes. The Ullswater Steamer and the Keswick Steamer are two of the popular choices. One can also board one of the steam trains and head out along the old railway lines.
The hotels in the area are all very well arranged. Each and everyone are catered to suit each and every tourist need, from specific bedding requirements to travel and transport arrangements. Room sizes vary in accordance to specific needs and wants and service from cleaning and washing to valet parking, all staff are highly qualified and your stay at any of the Lake District hotels will be comfortable and relaxing. When it comes to the accessories within your room it is dependent on your needs. Tv, mini bar, internet access are commonplace, and anything extra can easily be arranged.
The hotels themselves are fully equipped with all business and leisure needs from advanced, state of the art audio visual equipment set up in their world-class conference facilities, to work areas and information desks with capable employees ready to help in any way possible. Business is made easy and catering for any size or need is capable at any number of the Lake District hotels.
On the Leisure side, things are as laid back as can get. From the relaxing spa to the tranquil massage parlor, unwinding in complete harmony couldn't be easier. The on-hand staff make it their duty to make your stay as pleasurable as possible.
The night life is not really one of great magnitude; however the pubs are a scene to behold. If the pub in question is popular amounts the mountaineers, the atmosphere is one not to be missed. Heading down to the taverns is an excellent way to replenish those hard lost calories during the hard days hike and being a sheep farming region, roast lamb is the most popular meal of choice.
With the hills and lakes and pubs and lamb steaks, the Lake District is a destination for families, couples, businessmen and women alike. All wants and needs are sought after at the drop of a hat and whether the rationale for travel was commerce or contentment, anyone who enjoys walking or hiking or just general al fresco should book into any of the Lake District hotels immediately for an experience of a lifetime.
