We all know that the constant rush of city life can all get a bit too much — early mornings, commutes to work and all of the general tasks of being an adult in between. On top of all of that, we need our much-treasured sleep which sometimes leaves us thinking that we’ve wasted so much of the day.
Here at Stagecoach, we understand that sometimes you need a little break from everything and there’s no better place to go than the Lake District. Don’t feel guilty about taking a holiday from work or cancelling your weekend plans last minute — you deserve some time to yourself.
In this article, we’ll discuss some of the places where you must visit on your trip — you’ve got 24 hours, let’s start the day off with breakfast…
Fancy doing something out of the ordinary whilst you’re in the Lakes? If you’re a lover of walking dogs through the beautiful countryside — have you ever thought about walking alpacas? The Lingholm Estate in Keswick offers this activity, and you can even take them for a swim in the Derwent Water. Remember to take as many selfies as you can, this is a moment you do want to capture for your album! The price of the activity varies, with walking two alpacas starting at £60 which lasts 1 hour 30 minutes!
This could well and truly be the highlight of your trip, especially if you’re into excellent food and drink prepared by a French chef. Board a luxurious private yacht for either afternoon tea or a full four course meal fit for royalty on an evening. Cruising around one of England’s most beautiful lakes, you’ll not be disappointed as you eat your meal surrounded by the most beautiful views. Don’t be worried about taking plenty of photographs, because your host will do this for you! Book now.
Looking to get your blood pumping? Take a trip to the Go Ape! adventure course in Grizedale Forest! Packed with adrenaline-driving activities, from ziplining to crossing rope bridges — you’ll be taking your trip to new heights when you book this day out. Just imagine the views you would see from the top of a tree! However, there’s much more to this trip than climbing trees like Tarzan, have you ever tried your hand at riding a Segway? Speed around the forest and race your partner for a fun day out. Find out more about Go Ape.

End your time in the Lakes by eating excellent food at an amazing restaurant on the shores of Ullswater. With a relaxed and friendly atmosphere, the locally sourced dishes are prepared fresh by the in-house chef and can end your overall experience in the Lake District on the ultimate high. If you want to squeeze in another night away, don’t worry because this place can accommodate!
