Save up to 70% on late deals and bed & breakfast accommodation in the Lakes

Reviews of all these hotels in the Lake District are available on the hotel homepages. The Lake District is the UK’s largest and perhaps best-loved National Park. This spectacular, mountainous region is home to England’s highest peak - Scafell Pike and deepest lake — Wastwater — its pretty and bustling communities making it a popular tourist magnet. Lodging at a Lake District hotel can be a varied yet spectacular affair. If you like it busy, you should look for accommodation in and around the Ambleside and Bowness areas, as this is where the hub of activity is.

Burn How Garden House Hotel

Bowness-On-Windermere Lake District Cumbria LA23 3HH

Unlike the weather in the Lakes, Burn How is fabulously reliable whatever season it is. Within a ‘hop, skip and a jump’ of Bowness Bay and the magical World of Beatrix Potter theme house this colourful country property offers luxury accommodation and sits in a charming secret garden, as lush and unspoiled as the Lakeland fells and forests that hug Lake Windermere itself. Guests can look forward to visits to Hill Top the 17th Century house in Hawkshead where Potter wrote many of her fam ...

Miles shown on the table above are mapped ‘as the crow flies’ from the geographical centre of the Lake District, just north-west of Ambleside.

Link House by Bassenthwaite Lake lies at the foot of the mighty Skiddaw and offers a classic Lake District holiday. Bassenthwaite is the biggest body of water in the Lakes, measuring some five miles long and fed into by the River Derwent. Built during the latter half of the 1900s the Link House By The Lake is a charming country guest house enjoying a serene lakeside setting, half way between the towns Keswick and Cockermouth, birthplace of the poet William Wordsworth. With rates generally around the £45.00 mark, it’s certainly one of the cheapest options. If you’re travelling within the National Park there are a whole range of daytrips out using either public transport, boat launches, your feet or bikes.

Autumn Leaves is award winning, stone-built bed and breakfast hotel overlooking Ellerthwaite Park. Well located for exploring the Lake District and lazy days out on Windermere. This stylish yet traditional Victorian terrace house is located in a central yet quiet residential area in Windermere. Free parking is available (but not guaranteed) on the street outside and the property is only a ten-minute walk from Windermere Train Station. For a small guest house its not short on perks. Guests can get complimentary guest passes for the local Old England Pool and Spa which boasts a gym, swimming pool, sauna, steam room and jacuzzi plus a good range of beauty treatments.

Earning regular favourable reviews from Lake District visitors, the lovingly managed Burn How Garden House Hotel offers the peace and tranquillity that visitors to the lakes deserve. The hotel’s rambling cottage garden with its gentle cherry blossom trees and creeping evergreen shrubs provides a calm and leafy defence against the stresses of the world beyond its borders. Guests can look forward to visits to Hill Top the 17th Century house in Hawkshead where Potter wrote many of her famous children’s stories.

If you’re travelling within the National Park there are a whole range of daytrips out using either public transport, boat launches, your feet or bikes. The Sundial Guest House in Kendal and the Stags Head Hotel in Bowness are certainly among some of the cheaper options with rates regularly below £35.00. Extended reviews from previous guests can be viewed at the booking pages above, helping you make an informed decision on booking Lake District hotels and cheap b&b lodgings online.
