What do you look for when looking for walker friendly accommodation in the Lake District?

• Heart of the Lake District location, check
• Plentiful real ale, check
• Local food galore, check
• Super king-size beds, check

For walkers, these are surely the top four points on the consideration list for accommodation when staying and visiting the adventure capital of the UK and the largest National park, the Lake District.

With so many people having long commutes to work or constantly toing and froing, dropping off and picking up family, what could be better than not having to use a car once you’ve arrived at the accommodation? Not only is it an even greater break and change from the norm and day to day routine but it is also better for the environment and saves on such costly fuel too.

One of the leading daily newspapers and travel experts The Telegraph, has published their top 10 best Lake District hotels for walkers with each of the four points above being considered. Making the top 10 is the uber walker friendly, traditional Lake District inn, Cuckoo Brow at Far Sawrey. The inn is very close to Hawkshead, Ambleside and within easy reach of Lake Windermere across on the ferry. Fell, forest and bridleway walks are all on the doorstep yet the location is a haven of peace of tranquillity.

Above all, a warm welcome is required in any accommodation venue in the Lake District and with the (no doubt highly probable) chance of there being the odd spot of rain when out on the fells, you won’t be turned away for having muddy boots. In fact at The Cuckoo Brow Lake District Inn, the phrase ‘Muddy Boots’ is included in their very welcoming strap line.
