Imposing mountains, wild landscapes, tranquil lakes and picturesque towns combine to make the Lake District uniquely beautiful, and one of the best places in Britain for walking, climbing, boating and biking.
Recommended place to stay:
Brimstone Hotel & Spa

Official star rating:
If it’s out-and-out luxury you’re after, the Brimstone is the ideal choice.
This is a special place to really spoil yourself, modelled on a posh ski hotel: there are log-burning stoves and huge emperor beds in every room, a fabulously indulgent spa and customer ‘hosts’ on hand to arrange activities – everything at the Brimstone is designed to cater to your every need. There’s even a boot room with gear to borrow, supplied by premium brand Arc’teryx.
Factor in the wonderful location on a private estate in Langdale, and you have an adults-only hotel that really takes some topping.
The hotel is located in a quiet corner of the Lakes, between the villages of Chapel Stile and Elterwater, on the edge of the stunning valleys of Great and Little Langdale.
The estate and some facilities are shared with the Langdale Hotel next door, but it still feels gloriously private.
Numerous walks are on your doorstep, including the classic round over the Langdale Pikes.
