How to Have a Cheap Holiday to the Lake District

Mickey | travel | Friday, February 25th, 2011

One of the most expensive area that you can choose to take a holiday to in Great Britain is the Lake District. The Lake District is one of the most beautiful areas of the UK and it is therefore – despite the cost of doing so – an extremely popular choice for people of all ages to take a holiday too. You might think that a holiday is too expensive for you, but this article takes a look at how you may be able to afford it.

Avoid the Peak Season

The summer is a popular time for people to visit the Lake District and it is also the most expensive time. If you can avoid this time of year you will save at least 30% on the cost of your holiday. An autumnal visit to the Lake District has many benefits; the trees have turned their colour – which look beautiful – and if you are in to water sports the water temperature is at its highest.

Look for Self Catering Accommodation

Static caravan holidays are very popular in the Lake District for a very good reason – they are cheap. Combine a static caravan Lake District holiday with the right time of year and you can stay in the Lakes for 30% of the cost of staying in a hotel. Choosing the self catering type of holiday not only means you can save on accommodation costs – you can also save on meal costs.

Plan your meals before you go

There are some self catering holiday properties in fairly remote locations in the Lake District and it definitely pays to do your research before you go. If you are staying in a remote location food is going to be expensive – if you plan you meals before you go and take all of the food you require you can save a fortune.
