A day out in Whinlatter Forest

Autumn is our favourite season in the Lake District. When the leaves start to fall from the trees, the colours are just breathtaking. Forget all the talk about New England in the ‘fall’, we don't think you can rival the Lakes for the warm glow of the russets, reds and golds reflecting in our stunning lakes and tarns and emphasised even more by the early evening sunsets.


A weekend of the best food and drink in Cumbria

Taste Cumbria - Cockermouth

Cumbria and the Lake District's biggest food festival – Taste Cumbria – takes place in and around the streets of Cockermouth next weekend (27th-29th September). The annual food and drink festival brings the very best of Cumbria's artisan food and drink producers together, as well as offering people the chance to visit unique pop-up restaurants, watch chef demonstrations, and take part in stimulating food & drink masterclasses.


Three easy Lake District walks

Late summer into early autumn is a glorious time in the Lake District - the leaves are getting ready to fall and the early autumnal light illuminates the beauty of the spectacular landscape. It’s the perfect time to enjoy some wonderful but easy Lake District walks around The Pheasant and the Keswick area. There’s no better feeling than getting maximum rewards for fairly minimal effort, so here are some of our favourite easy Lake District hikes with big views!


Can you fly to the Lake District?

Carlisle Lake District Airport

Yes, as from earlier this month, you can! After an absence of more than 25 years, visitors can now once again arrive into Cumbria and the Lake District by air. Leave the hustle and bustle of London city life behind and enjoy the views over the stunning Lake District landscape before arriving less than an hour and a half later into Carlisle Lake District Airport. You’d think it sounds almost too good to be true but that’s now how easy it now is to reach this beautiful area.


It's show time! What to see and do in the Lakes this summer

Lowther Castle Country Fair

Summer definitely marks the start of ‘show time’ in the Lake District. Our traditional county shows celebrate the best of the area’s food, drink and countryside heritage. From sheepdog displays and hound trails, to the ancient Cumberland & Westmorland Wrestling and Fell Running, some of Cumbria’s county shows have been running for almost 200 years and are still providing great entertainment to today’s visitors.
