Things to Do

The Cranleigh Hotel is an ideal base for exploring Cumbria and the Lake District, as it's located only one minute's walk from Lake Windermere and the beautiful village of Bowness on Windermere.

The Lake District itself is a treasured place of scenic beauty made famous by literary figures including William Wordsworth and Beatrix Potter. The landscape offers so many possibilities for those interested in outdoor activites, from walking and cycling to climbing and watersports.

The region boasts many well known lakes such as Windermere, Ullswater, Derwentwater, Wast Water and Coniston, all of which are all within easy reach of the Cranleigh Hotel. Cumbria is also home to many famous mountains including Skiddaw, Helvellyn, Scafell and Coniston Old Man, to name but a few of the many walks to enjoy in the fabulous English Lake District.
