Top Places in the Lake District for Your Motorhome Holiday

Here at Motorhome Rent UK, we’re lucky to be nearby the beautiful Lake District. It’s a popular area for rental customers to visit, so here are our top recommendations when you’re planning your visit:

Bowness, Lake Windermere

This is one of the most popular spots in the Lake District, and with good reason. It is a beautiful town on the edge of Lake Windermere, and offers a host of great restaurants, bars and shops.

It does tend to get busy during peak season, so we recommend booking a site or meals in advance. Alternatively, visiting in autumn or winter will give you more peace and quiet, with the added bonus of autumn leaves or frost adding to the natural beauty of the area.

You can hire small motorboats to take out into the lake, and further along the lakeside there is Low Wood watersports centre, where waterskiing and wakeboarding is available.


Wastwater is the deepest lake in the Lake District, yet it is often forgotten by people visiting the area. So if you are looking for stunning scenery without the crowds, this would be an excellent place to visit. This lake is also popular for those who enjoy wild swimming, or have their own paddle boards and kayaks.


This area has lovely scenery and a number of nice pubs and restaurants. It’s not as popular as Windermere, but can still pull crowds in the school holidays. For hikers, the Old Man of Coniston is a stunning route that offers breath taking views. At the lake itself, you can hire row boats, go swimming and try sailing.


This is a beautiful town steeped in history, and has been home to literary greats Beatrix Potter and William Wordsworth. You can visit Beatrix Potter’s charming home Hill Top, which has been preserved and maintained by the National Trust.

Within the town itself, you’ll find traditional pubs, and cafes serving cakes and tea. Additionally, there are a number of shops catering to visitors.
