The Last Word

It is a little misleading to call this area the Lake District because besides its swathes of water there are also great peaks, fells and valleys. It’s not surprising that artists such as Turner and poets such as Wordsworth have all fallen in love with its sheer beauty.

With four Michelin star restaurants in the Lake District, it is a foodies heaven and birthplace of the humble sticky toffee pudding and renowned for its Kendal Mint Cake. Wherever you choose to stay the cherry on top has to be the luxury of a glorious soak in a hot tub which each holiday home, bijou or majestic, boasts.
