Discover the Lake District with Party Houses
Glassy lakes that stretch out as far as the eye can see. Green hills, coated in lush grass with dramatic skies overhead. There’s a reason that poet William Wordsworth held the Lake District close to his heart. This is a place where nature comes first, where quaint, cosy towns serve as doorways to the outside world, with stunning paths extending in all directions. It’s a place where you can step back to breathe. To integrate with small-town life, and take in the “Soft inland murmur” described by Wordsworth. This is the idyllic escape from the rush of the city, that allows you to truly unwind. It is a place of sheer beauty, complimented by charming towns with welcoming locals. A holiday in the Lake District is a holiday like no other, and our Lake District Party Houses are a gateway to this breathtaking destination.

Why visit the Lake District?
Lake District for Nature Lovers
The Lake District is a haven for nature lovers, bursting with breathtaking hiking and cycling routes. The lakes offer a fabulous host of activities, from casual boat tours to canoeing and kayaking. Those looking for a truly peaceful escape can tour the stunning scenes of Derwent Water, stopping off at various points to enjoy the many walking routes around the area. Those who prefer a little action will find all they need in Windermere, the heart of the Lake District, where we find the Brockhole on Windermere, an adventure park offering everything from tree-top trekking to tasty treats. Whether your ideal time is a secluded peak or a fun-fuelled day kayaking on pristine lakes, you’ll find yourself becoming one with the immaculate beauty of this district.
The Lake District | Romance and literature
If you’re not yet convinced by the glimmering lakes and rolling green hills, turn your attention to the district’s rich literary history. Home to the likes of William Wordsworth and Beatrix Potter, the Lake District has served as an inspiration for artistry through the ages. A trip to Grasmere grants you the rare opportunity to visit the famous Dove Cottage, home to Wordsworth from 1799 to 1808. The cottage serves as a museum, displaying original texts and sketches by one of England’s most famous romantic poets.
Another must-see in the area is Hill Top, the farmhouse retreat of Beatrix Potter. While we all know her for the likes of Peter Rabbit, Potter was a true nature lover, who dedicated much of her life to preserving the Lake District, donating 4000 acres of countryside to the National Trust on her death in 1943. During her lifetime, she helped the trust to obtain large portions of old farmland, in the hopes they may protect the breathtaking landscapes and all their natural beauty. Hill Top, once the personal studio of Beatrix Potter, is now open to the public and stands as one of the most frequented destinations in the Lake District.
Pet-friendly Lake District accommodation
Pets are generally beloved around the Lake District, with many local establishments welcoming well-behaved dogs (though please, always check if it’s ok before entering). The plethora of walking, hiking and cycling routes are perfect for an action-packed holiday, where your furry friends can run freely through the rolling hills. For those who don’t have dogs of their own, a trip to the Lake District Sheep Dog Experience will offer you the unique opportunity to handle a fully-trained sheepdog under professional supervision! There are a few dog-friendly options among our selection of Lake District Party Houses, with options in the heart of Kendal and a little further off in Kirkby Stephen, less than an hour from the stunning shores of Windermere. The Lake District offers a truly tranquil retreat for all members of the family, providing a stunning blend of slow country life, exceptional scenery, and a host of activities so there’s never a dull moment.
