From dreamy coastal locations to hearty local fare, hospitality in the Lake District brings together charm, style, history and natural beauty. With each location offering something unique and different, especially when it comes to their gastro pubs with rooms. Roam the Beatrix Potter scenery and explore historic sites, bring four-legged friends to enjoy lakeside strolls, go bird watching, cycling or participate in water sports to get a different view of the achingly beautiful landscapes. Dog-friendly getaways and romantic retreats abound, whether you stay at an 18th-century inn that's fuss-free and full of warmth or a 17th century coaching inn in the shadows of Skiddaw. Visit the pretty village of Kendal and wake to views of the Lyth valley, head to Kirkby Lonsdale where you're surrounded by the buzz of the market town. Tuck into beautifully curated local fare, then retire to luxurious but cosy rooms and suites that honour each location's history but are never short on modern luxuries either.
