Explore the Lake District with our team!

We’ve asked some of our friendly team at Underscar to share their favourite things to do in the days away from the office as they explore the Lakes.

Mary Palmer is our Office Manager for Heart of the Lakes & Underscar Sales & Rentals in Keswick

What’s the best thing about the Lake District?

The different pace of life where people have time to stop and say hello whilst enjoying the stunning scenery from the tops of the fells to the lowlands of the lakes.

If you had a few hours to spare in the Lake District what would you do?

A gentle stroll around Buttermere with a stop off for coffee and a cake en-route. Or a visit to Lingholm Estate in Portinscale for a walk through their gardens and a coffee and lunch in their lovely café.

What’s your favourite Lake District Attraction?

The open top bus (in the summer months preferably!!) from Keswick through Thirlmere, Grasmere, Rydal, Ambleside & Windermere.  The most scenic road in the UK and with a day ticket you can get on and off, at will, to visit any of the towns en-route. Even a spot of retail therapy shopping at Lakeland when you get to Windermere to bring home with you.

What should visitors not miss when staying in the Lake District?

A trip around one of the Lakes – Derwentwater does a circular lake tour with a hop on and off ticket so that you can incorporate a walk up Catbells and then get the launch back to Keswick for a well-earned drink.

What is your favourite place to capture the Lake District at its best.

Anywhere in the springtime on a sunny day surrounded by newborn lambs and daffodils – perfect!!!
