If you fancy an evening out, there's plenty of pubs and restaurants to choose from, as well as a cinema and theatre for entertainment. Adrenaline junkies will delight at all the outdoor activities on offer - hire a rowing boat or kayak to explore Derwentwater, visit Go Ape at Whinlatter Forest, tackle the Via Ferrata at Honister Slate Mine or sign up for an afternoon of ghyll scrambling with an adventure company - great fun for everyone!

For a day out, take a scenic drive through The Lakes to Grasmere, stock up on their famous Gingerbread and visit the grave of William Wordsworth, before heading on to charming Bowness-on-Windermere. There's a great choice of shops for those who like to indulge in a little retail therapy and The World of Beatrix Potter is a must for families. Fans of the famous author will delight in a trip to beautiful Hawkshead - catch the ferry across from Windermere and take a look around Hilltop, Potter's former home. Why not head west from Keswick to the stunning Solway Coast? With fantastic views across the firth to Scotland, a stop at Allonby for an ice cream and stroll on the beach (be sure to check out the tide times before you go) is a treat for the whole family.
