The Lake District: Where to Eat, Sleep and Explore

Megan Abbott


Off the Beaten Track: The Lake District is a thoughtfully curated guide revealing the hidden joys of the Lakes, including where to eat well, explore and rest along the way. As a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Lake District certainly has a lot going for it – misty peaks and glassy waters, plunging valleys, ancient paths and wide-open skies; with bustling pubs, snoozy villages and market towns in the shadows of mountains. It is a place of light and drama, sound and serenity.

This idyllic place leaves you feeling peaceful, invigorated and inspired. Each chapter lays out a hand-picked selection of places to sample local flavours and find a home away from home in this beautiful region, as well as inspiration for activities that embrace the seasons. Whether you’re looking for breathtaking views from a day spent walking, quiet waters for wild swimming, the perfect pub for a post-hike pint or cosy cafes and independent bookshops, there’s something for everyone here.

Off the Beaten Track is a series of handy books celebrating the UK’s most peaceful places to escape, explore and unplug. From rugged coastlines to high peaks and sleepy villages, we explore the most beautiful local spots to stay, eat and play. These books are here to help you reconnect with the land and discover parts of it you never knew existed.

They are for nature lovers, city dwellers craving wide-open spaces, and world travellers in search of their next adventure.
