The Lake District. England’s largest national park, home of the country’s highest mountain (Scafell Pike) and it’s deepest lake (Wastwater), is known as one of the most beautiful corners of the UK, and makes the perfect place for a mini-break. With 3,500 kilometres of rights of way, this epic park has walks to suit all levels – from gentle country rambles to mountainous hikes – and with lakes for sailing and swimming, trees for zip lining (see my Go Ape review for more on that), incredible country pubs and Michelin Star restaurants for indulging, and plenty of trails for cycling, there’s so much more to do besides. This is truly one of Britain’s best breathing spaces, and it’s just a few hours from London! What better place to escape daily life for a mini-break of relaxation, rambling, and rugged landscapes?
To help encourage others to visit this truly gorgeous part of the country, I’ve teemed up with luxury cottage rental company LakeLovers to bring you my best giveaway prize yet. Lakelovers have a wide selection of cottages that are hand-picked in unique locations and are equipped to the highest standard to suit every taste and pocket, making it easy to plan a fabulous and totally independent stay in the Lake District.
In conjunction with Lakelovers, I’m offering one lucky winner a fabulous three night stay at the sophisticated yet quirky cottage Upside Down on the Corner, in the picturesque village of Windermere. This luxury getaway is worth up to £524, so this truly is my best prize yet – and entering the competition couldn’t be easier! Just complete the Rafflecopter form at the bottom of this post to be in with a chance of winning.
But first, a little about the cottage, which is something really special and, as its name suggests, ‘upside down’! Upside Down on the Corner is also super stylish, decked out in contemporary blends of colour, creating a cosy and romantic setting with a calming atmosphere. The distinctive vaulted ceiling and dark wooden trim retain the cottage’s traditional charm, while luxurious modern furnishings make your stay as relaxed and as comfortable as possible.
