There are a myriad activities to keep you busy throughout your stay; as well as numerous picturesque and interesting places to visit.

Things to Do on Holiday in Braithwaite, Cumbria

Most people head to The Lake District in order to be able to get out and about and really explore this wilderness of England and this will be entirely possible on your holidays in Braithwaite. To start with the tamer and more leisurely choices of activities that are widely available in the area, you have the likes of swimming, tennis, nature walking and there are brilliant chances to sight ospreys in the lakes if you are into ornithology. For those looking for more action, or even adrenaline-pumping fun, you may choose to participate in activities such as abseiling, paragliding, white-water rafting and canoeing.

Places to Visit on Holiday in Braithwaite, Cumbria

Whilst spending your holidays in Braithwaite, you really should try and explore more of the Lake District. You will be ideally placed close enough to all of the main lakes in the area - but it is usually Lake Windermere that the majority of tourists come to the area to visit. After all, this is the largest lake in all of England. This is also where you will find the majority of the facilities for tourists - with the village of Bowness proving to be a particular draw. Other towns that should feature on your sightseeing list include Keswick, which is only a few miles to the east of Braithwaite, Penrith and Kendal. As you will be based so close to the Scottish border, you may even fancy venturing a little farther up the M6 motorway and head into the beautiful region of Dumfries and Galloway.

Weather in Braithwaite, Cumbria

Visitors on their holidays in Braithwaite, and Cumbria as a whole, find that taking waterproof clothing is an absolute must. You see, the Lake District can easily receive well over 40 inches of rainfall per year; some higher spots will be even more than this - so do come prepared for heavy rainfall at any time of the year. Temperatures wise, the average during July will be around 19 degrees Celsius; and in January this is more likely to be around 6 or 7 degrees.

Travel to Braithwaite, Cumbria

If you decide to travel to your self catering accommodation in Braithwaite by car (which is by far the best way!), you will find that the village is actually very well connected. The M6 motorway is very close-by, as is the A66 which just bypasses the settlement. If you decide to fly to the area, the best option will probably prove to be Manchester Airport (MAN) which is a relatively short drive down the M6. It would definitely be advisable to arrange a hire car for collection from the airport to get you to your cottage in Braithwaite.

Good size rooms for 3-4 people and well provided with everything you could want - including a bottle of wine on arrival - ta for that!. It is an easy 20 minute stroll into Keswick which builds a good hunger for eating and drinks in any of the many great pubs in the town centre - Wainwrights was our particular favourite. Would definitely stay here again - Really easy to get around for walking in many parts of the lakes from this well positioned accommodation

We were a party of 12 (3 families) and the house was perfect for us, plenty of space, great dining room and living room, and well equipped kitchen. Only a five minute walk from Keswick town centre, with shops, pubs and restaurants, and plenty of opportunities to go for great walks straight from the house. Would love to stay again.
