Why the Lake District for a family holiday?

Whether you’re looking for an active holiday with exciting hikes or to take things slower with a scenic stroll, the Lake District has it all. While the natural beauty of the area is incredible, there are also several family-friendly attractions to make the most of, such as the World of Beatrix Potter, the South Lakes Safari Zoo and the Ravenglass & Eskdale Railway.
