Hiking enthusiasts have been advised to pack their walking boots
before heading to north-west England for a stay at the Lakeside Hotel.
Ann Lee, writing for the Metro, explained the accommodation is the perfect base for an activity holiday in the Lake District.
She noted the terrain of the region – with everything from flat country paths to some of England's tallest mountains on offer – makes it a popular place to be.
"We visited Bowness and Beatrix Potter's art centre. Of course there's the rest of the Lake District to be climbed and walking routes of all kinds – time to get your boots on," recommended Ms Lee.
Some people may simply choose to remain close to Windermere, which the writer described as an "oasis" and "idyllic".
The Lake District is the largest national park in England at 2,292 sq km in area and welcomes in excess of eight million visitors each year.
