Lake District activities
England's largest National Park is famed for its stunning scenery, abundant wildlife and rich cultural heritage, plus the area provides the ultimate playground for a host of brilliant outdoor adventure activities.
Activities & Accommodation:
The Lake District is the country's biggest adventure playground and it's breathtaking. Enjoy a range of adventure activities, from mountain biking and treasure hunting to sailing and off-road driving. Where else could you find such a variety of world-class outdoor activities, in so accessible and compact a region all set against one of England's most spectacular backdrops? The National Park has the highest concentration of outdoor activity centres in the UK. It is the birthplace of mountaineering and there is a tradition of unrestricted access to the fells. And of course you can also get on the water of the area’s beautiful lakes and coastline. Cosy holiday cottages, quirky boutique hotels, friendly bed and breakfasts and luxury hotels are all available! A self-catering property is the perfect way to explore the Lake District - please contact us for details.
Restaurants & Nightlife:
A visit to Cumbria would not be complete without trying some superb local food & drink. From famous Cumberland sausage to damson gin, sticky toffee pudding to local salt marsh lamb; a host of great pubs, inns and restaurants ensure there is something for all tastes and occasions. It's also worth taking a trip to Cumbria's breweries to sample some real local ale.
Shopping & Culture:
Shopping isn't necessarily the first thing that springs to mind when thinking about the Lake District, however there are many independent shops and producers retailing quality local produce including Grasmere Gingerbread, Jennings Ale, and many local jewellers who pride themselves in making bespoke jewellery and crafts. Lake District towns have many independent retailers offering a more market-town shopping experience. And, if it's a day or night-out on the high-street that takes your fancy try Carlisle, Workington or Kendal for all the department stores, brand names, and nightclubs you can handle!
Simply Good Times work closely with local producers of quality activities to provide amazing Lake District experiences. Combine some of our top activities with one of the great hotel or self-catering accommodations available in the Lake District and you will enjoy the best of the area in the style your event deserves.
