The view from Miller Howe is testament to why Lakeland has inspired generations of poets, artists and writers. Glittering waters, glorious hills and the constantly changing light will ensure you leave us refreshed, recharged and relaxed.

From retail therapy, a gentle lake cruise to a blustery charge up a fell, the Lake District has so much to offer.

What about a Guided Tour of The Lakes?




The Lake District, England’s largest national park, is famed for the rugged majesty of its mountains and the beauty of the lakes that reflect them. But it is so much more than mountains! Inspired by the romantic landscape, many poets, artists and writers have been drawn here and there is a rich cultural heritage to be discovered. Miller Howe is ideally situated as a base from which to discover the Lake District’s hidden secrets. Why not hire a locally qualified blue badge tourist guide to bring the region to life? From pre history through the Roman period, the monastic era and up to the time of Wordsworth, Ruskin and Beatrix Potter. Not forgetting the geology and natural history find out what makes this region the amazing place it is. 

A blue badge guide will tailor an itinerary to suit you. For example you could explore on foot. Starting in the historic village of Grasmere where you can learn about one of our greatest poets, William Wordsworth, or you could go in search of Red Squirrels as one of the best opportunities to see them in the wild is here. Then Walk the ancient Coffin Route to the hamlet of Rydal. For the energetic, climb Loughrigg for the magnificent views finally returning to Grasmere for a well earned tea and perhaps a slice of the famous gingerbread.

Or perhaps spend a day indulging in a private driver guide tour around some of the central Lakes’ most famous sites whilst taking in the breathtaking views. Places to visit could include William Wordsworth’s home, Dove Cottage or Beatrix Potter’s celebrated home Hill Top. Perhaps visit Coniston where you can learn all about copper mining, slate quarrying, the daring exploits and tragic end of the Donald Campbell, the much loved children’s stories Swallows and Amazons and all about one of the world’s greatest thinkers, artists and writers, John Ruskin. If you have already “done” all these then why not ask your guide to take you to wonderful gardens and less well known places and, of course, a charming country pub for lunch.
