Stunning, breathtaking, unreal — these adjectives barely scratch the surface when describing the natural beauty of the Lake District. This region in northwest England covers the country’s largest national park which was designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2017. While endlessly photographed, the best way to appreciate Lake District is to see it up close. Marvel at England’s largest lake, Windermere, then row a boat on Coniston Water. Relax in the quaint Grasmere village before hiking your way around Ullswater. Camp at Langdale Valley before capping off your trip at the awe-inspiring Wastwater, Lake District’s deepest and most breathtaking lake. Raring to go on a Lake District trip? Make sure your hotel room allows you to take in as much of the scenery as you can. Read on for our list of the best hotels with in-room balcony in the Lake District, United Kingdom.
