Hear from our friends at the Good Life Lake District Cottages!

Don’t be put off by the steep fell passes and lake trails, you don’t have to put your hiking boots on to explore the Lake District National Park!

Our friends at The Mountain Goat have been offering visitors a choice of sightseeing tours around the Lake District for over 40 years. If a sight is worth seeing, there will be a Mountain Goat Tour to take you there. You can sit back and enjoy a guided bus tour of the National Park, visiting locations such as Ambleside, Windermere, Bowness on Windermere, Grasmere and Keswick. Each tour has been carefully planned to ensure you will get the most out of your time in the Lake District. Just make sure your camera is fully charged, there will be plenty of views and sites that you will want to capture along the way.

A couple of the tours we would recommend are “The 10 Lakes Spectacular” which is a full day tour taking you to see ten famous Lake District lakes including Windermere, Grasmere, Buttermere and Ullswater. Another popular tour is “The Best of the Lakes” which shows off both the Lake District lakes and dramatic scenery. This tour takes your through the Langdale Valley and on to the deepest lake in England, Wastwater, before returning to Windermere via Grasmere.

If you would prefer exploring the Lake District as an exclusive group Mountain Goat have vehicles and drivers available for private hire. They can provide itineraries specifically tailored to your needs.

For further information on the tours including routes, prices and times please visit The Mountain Goat website.

The team here at Good Life Lake District Cottages enjoy the stunning Lake District scenery every day, and we certainly don’t take it for granted. If we weren’t working so hard, looking after our Lake District Cottages you may find us on a Mountain Goat Tour too!
