Enjoy autumn in the Lake District….without walking boots!


There’s no doubt about it, autumn in the Lake District is a very special time. The fells turn golden and the lakes become misty, meaning the scenery in the Lake District is more stunning than ever. The area isn’t just a place for fell walkers, mountain bikers and water sport enthusiasts think again. You’ll be pleased to hear that you can enjoy the area and beautiful autumn scenery without having to don a pair of boots!  So beautiful scenery and no walking boots….let us  explain how you can enjoy autumn in the Lake District.

Mountain Goat Tours

Sightseeing tours with Mountain Goat will take you to a variety of beautiful spots in the Lake District, you won’t need to hike anywhere! Examples of tours you can choose from are the Ten Lakes Spectacular, The High Adventure or Beatrix Potter’s favourite countryside. Departing from Ambleside, Bowness, Grasmere, Kendal, Keswick and Windermere all the guided tours will take you to see stunning views, and there are plenty of stops to allow you to take photos of the beautiful autumn scenery.

Windermere Lake Cruises

Windermere Lake Cruises start from Ambleside, Bowness, Brockhole or Lakeside Pier and offer a choice of routes and visiting points around Lake Windermere. You could make a day of it and hop off at Wray Castle so the little ones can play or at Bowness to browse the shops. Alternatively, stay on the boat this autumn and enjoy the stunning views, mountain scenery and the golden coloured wooded islands.

Viewpoint at Rayrigg Road

Simply hop out of your car to enjoy a beautiful view of Lake Windermere, the Langdale Pikes and surrounding fells. In autumn the colours on the lake shore are stunning. Spend 10 minutes admiring the view, taking photos and getting that autumn break selfie your friends would be jealous of.

Hire a Twizy

Silent, cute and lots of fun! Twizy is an electric car that you can hire by the hour or for half a day. Explore the Lake District in autumn with ease as it does 40 miles with each charge. You can hire from Hope Park Café in Keswick and enjoy the autumn colours in Borrowdale. You won’t scare the Herdwick sheep as you pull over to take photos, you’ll get lots of attention as people admire your fun wheels and there’s not a boot lace in sight!

Hopefully our ideas have helped you realise that you could really enjoy a holiday in the Lake District where you don’t have to hike for miles or climb fell paths to enjoy autumn at its best.
