Enhance your experience and make your visit more memorable.

The Lake District in the UK is known for its stunning natural beauty and outdoor activities, so upgrading your stay can involve various options.

Here are some ways people often look to upgrade their Lake District stay:


Choose accommodations closer to the lakes, mountains, or towns, depending on your interests. Lakefront or mountaintop locations offer breathtaking views and easy access to outdoor activities.


Upgrade your dining experience by booking reservations at upscale restaurants or in-house dining at your accommodation. Explore local cuisine and fine dining options for a taste of the region’s flavours.


Arrange for guided tours, such as hiking, biking, or water sports, to explore the area. Consider hot air balloon rides, helicopter tours, or boat excursions for a unique perspective on the landscape.

Spa and Wellness

Look for accommodations spas or wellness centres close by for relaxation and rejuvenation. Or book private massages, facials, or other spa treatments to unwind at your property after a day of exploring.

Adventure and Recreation

Try adventure activities like rock climbing, kayaking, or zip-lining. Rent a boat or kayak to explore the lakes independently.

Local Experiences

Attend cultural events, visit museums, and explore charming villages and towns. Join local workshops or art classes to immerse yourself in the local culture.


Consider renting a luxury car or hiring a chauffeur for convenient travel in style. Explore scenic routes via steam trains, ferries, or private cruises.

Special Occasions

If you’re celebrating a special occasion like an anniversary or birthday, inform your accommodation to arrange surprises like champagne, flowers, or a private dinner.

Time of Year

Plan your visit during the off-peak season for quieter surroundings and potentially better deals on accommodations and activities.

Remember to plan and book your upgrades in advance, especially during peak tourist seasons, to ensure availability and to make the most of your Lake District stay. Whether you’re seeking relaxation or adventure, there are plenty of options to enhance your experience in this stunning region.
