Places To Visit

For the energetic there are the Lake District fells, footpaths and lakes to explore with walks available for all ages and abilities.

If you prefer a more leisurely day out why not visit the many museums and historic houses such as Levens Hall near Kendal and Wordsworth’s Dove Cottage in Grasmere. If you want to just sit back and enjoy the scenery, you could take a leisurely cruise on Coniston Water or Windermere Lake and just watch the world go by.
