The Lake District offers a fabulous range of activities for all ages.
Matson Ground offers Windermere holiday cottages and its Ullswater holiday cottages. The lakes both offer a range of boating activities, from canoe and rowing boat hire to luxury sailing boat hire. Steamer trips offer a relaxing cruise on both lakes and a lovely way to view the surrounding fells.
There are interesting houses to visit with changing exhibitions – for example Blackwell, near Bowness-on-Windermere, Abbot Hall in Kendal, Brantwood near Coniston, the Armitt in Ambleside, and Dalemain, near Penrith. There are museums in Ambleside, Kendal and Keswick. On top of that there are visitor attractions to appeal to many – The World of Beatrix Potter, Brockhole, The Ravenglass and Eskdale Railway to name a few.
The Lake District is best known for its lakes and mountains. In addition to classic fell walks there is a vast network of footpaths at lower levels allowing everyone to enjoy the fells, woods and lakeside walks. The LDNPA has established a network of paths “Miles without Stiles” for people with limited mobility.
Our cottages offer a comfortable base from which to explore this amazing landscape.
