Last week I fell in love. Not with a guy, mind you – but with an area of England that I had never seriously considered for a holiday. I was planning a weekend getaway in collaboration with Expedia, Visit Britain and Travelettes and wanted the destination to be close by, yet different from what I had seen of England so far. The choice was pretty obvious – we’d spend a weekend in the Lake District.
While you could easily spend an entire summer exploring the region and slowly travel from valley to valley, we only had three days/two nights at hand – not much to get an overview of an entire national park! Here, however, are a few things to do on a weekend getaway in the Lake District, including my favourite tips on where to indulge in the best local vegan cuisine.
