We always travel to London

I was given Hoteldirect as a retirement gift from friends and colleagues, and what a gift this was. I called Hoteldirect and spoke to Chris who infact had dealt with my colleague who had arranged this voucher. He was able to tend to my requirements and chose the Hotel for me. He even went that extra mile to ask the hotel to leave a bottle of Champagne in the room with a gift card to help to celebrate my retirement. I would certainly use Hoteldirect again

Lake District breaks with Hotel Direct

Nestled in the heart of the Cumbrian mountains in Northwest England, the Lake District is an area of outstanding natural beauty that draws in visitors from all over the world. Renowned for its unspoilt scenery, this beautiful national park has long been a paradise for walkers, who travel to the area all year round to take in some of the most spectacular views in the United Kingdom. With the area's extensive hiking trails, guests can explore moors dotted with ancient stone circles; stroll around vast blue lakes; and over magnificent mountains including Scafell Pike, an extinct volcano that forms England's highest mountain peak.

One of the District's most stunning natural wonders is Windermere, the largest of its 19 lakes. An 11-mile-long ribbon of beautiful blue water, Windermere is one of the UK's most popular tourist destinations, where guests can take traditional steamboat tours or explore the lake freely on self-drive motorboats.

The Lake District's idyllic rural landscape has inspired artists and writers for hundreds of years, and their influence can be seen in the culture and even the architecture of the region. Writers William Wordsworth and Beatrix Potter both spent much of their lives in the area, and their perfectly preserved country homes are both open to visitors, along with dozens of historic properties and museums that delve into the Lake District's rich cultural heritage.

Hotel Direct offers a range of hotels throughout the Lake District, from the picturesque lakeside towns of Windermere and Keswick to the historic port of Barrow-In Furness. In addition to their comfortable rooms, gorgeous views, and easy access to lakeside walks, many of our featured hotels offer luxurious spa treatments and leisure facilities - perfect for rainy days - so whatever the reason for your stay, you can enjoy all that this incredible part of the UK has to offer.
