The Lake District

Never a dull moment
in the Lakes...

You can be sure...

There is never a dull moment in the Lakes

From the spectacular street festivals such as Kendal Mintfest, and the nationally-acclaimed Westmorland Show, to the annual Grasmere Sports, with its Westmorland wrestling, hound trailing and fell running, there is always something happening close by.

Often under-cover and always well-attended, Cumbria's long and eclectic calendar of events provides the perfect antidote to a damp day.

So much so that when we compiled a compendium of things to do, we reached more than 60!

For an up-to-date list of all the weird and wonderful events taking place in and around the beautiful Lake District, please visit the Go Lakes website here:

Some people visit the Lakes for the scenery...

Others come for its famous food

At Holbeck Ghyll we combine the two like no other luxury Lake District hotel can.
