Whilst the south may be getting ready for the Olympic Games, a group of six family owned and run hotels in the Lake District, is gearing up for more families visits. Lake District Hotels Ltd provides family guests with free bike hire, a free Walking Guide, discounts on top local attractions and a magic box of games and ideas to amuse the kids. Its all in an attempt to create a very British Family holiday that saves families time and money when deciding what to do.
The six hotels are nestled on lakeshores and in pretty market towns, so theres something to suite all tastes and families of four, staying two or more nights, will find a free copy of the Lake District Hotels newly launched Walking Guide in their room on arrival - it includes walks from the doorstep of the hotels for all abilities.
The Lodore Falls Hotel sits on the shores of Derwentwater near Keswick and has a waterfall in the garden, croquet on the lawn, a baby listening service and a kids club in the holidays. At the bottom of the garden is a jetty from which you can board the launch or try your hand at canoeing or kayaking.
Stephen Johnson, General Manager said Guests who came as children with their parents are now introducing their families to the Lake District instead of travelling abroad. They enjoy our warm hospitality, our great food and the diverse range of attractions that appeal to all members of the family. We live in a very compact county and have good relationships with local businesses, which means we can do more for our guests by negotiating special discounts.
This summer there are 21 extra benefits when families book a break they receive the free Walking Guide and 20 discount vouchers that make the most of the most popular destinations, covering everything from a wild day out at Trotters World of Animals to a great deal on family meals in local restaurants and pizzerias. Guests receive their vouchers on arrival.
The Graves family own and run the 6 family hotels under the umbrella of Lake District Hotels Limited. They are set in prestigious locations: Inn on the Lake at Glenridding, The Lodore Falls Hotel and The Borrowdale Hotel in the Borrowdale Valley near Keswick, plus The Skiddaw Hotel and the Kings Arms Hotel in Keswick and The George Hotel in Penrith.
