Luckily in Cumbria and the Lake District there is no shortage of things to do. There are a range of watersports and lake activites to do including canoeing and boat tours from lakes such as Windermere and Coniston (as well as others). There is also the national park to explore, if you think it’s not camping weather there is no shortage of places to stay from budget accomodation to a little bit more luxurious.
Wherever you are in the country, check out your local areas “What’s on” page for activities in your area.
If in doubt or organised fun isn’t your thing, put on your boots, grab your waterproof and get outside! Go for a walk, jump in puddles and kick some leaves!
