I have used this forum before and I received some great feedback & tips! I decided to post here once again, this time about the vacation I am trying to plan with my boyfriend for this Summer: 24th - 31st July 2014.
We will be arriving at Manchester Airport (from Malta). We'll be departing from the same airport.
I am trying to understand The Lake District's geography a bit better as I'm looking for an accommodation hotel to stay in. We'd like to be as close as possible to the lake (this is for view/scenery purposes). However, it's okay to stay at a place which is walking distance from the lake itself. We'd love to stay somewhere where there are other restaurants or some other places for activities... I read about pottery and I think that would be interesting!
I'm after a romantic get-away. I'd like to book a hotel with english breakfast.
I'm trying to understand exactly the relationship between Cumbria, Keswick, Windermere (please tolerate my spelling!!) and the Lake District... Is it like the Lake District IS surrounded by all these places?
We'd like to go walking around the lakes.... We're also thinking of fishing (my BF LOVES to fish when he can and I'm trying to learn more about that too so I can get us a week permit so we can fish whenever we want to). I heard there are bike tours as well...
With regards to budget for accommodation, for 2 persons, I would consider anything up to 550 - 700 pounds for 7 nights (prefer the lower part of the range, less would be even better! haha).
Thank you in advance for your help. I'm soooo excited about visiting the lakes!!
