Relax and enjoy the wonders of the Lake District

The Lake District is the largest and probably the most loved of our National Parks. Encompassing breath-taking landscape, mountains, lakes and picturesque market towns it holds something for everyone, no wonder it inspired the work of Wordsworth, Beatrix Potter, John Ruskin and so many of our finest writers and artists.

It is an area rich in cultural heritage and offers many fascinating days out, whether your interest is in Stately Homes and Topiary Garden, Steam Railways or Wild Life Conservation you will find it in the Lake District.

For those a little more energetic you will find excellent walking, sailing, horse riding and cycling in some of the most beautiful surroundings in the country, if not the world – we are a bit biased! When you arrive we will be happy to recommend the best places to go and interesting walks to take (Don't forget your Wainwright guides).

Old Barn Holidays is perfectly located to give you access to best that the Lake District can offer. We hope you enjoy your holiday or short break with us and that we have whet your appetite for many more great holidays in the Lake District. Did we mention the Lakes, Fells, Forests and footpaths with spectacular views all year round.
