Families vote the Lake District their Number 1

In a recent poll by Freedom To Go, the camping, caravanning and short break website, the Lake District has been voted as the most desirable place to see and visit in the UK.

The poll asked parents of children under 16 to vote with the Lake District amounting 61% of the votes. Family travel within the Lake District has always been high but it is increasing yearly too yet still 20% of the people who voted for the Lake District haven’t been before. It is the idea they love of it, the open air, the chance to get the kids away from computers and tablets and have a proper, interactive family holiday.

Coming in at second in the poll was Stonehenge. Despite this being a must in terms of historical value, it is just one site yet the Lake District offers history over multiple locations and a place where a day visit up to a two week family holiday can be enjoyed, obviously we are in no way bias towards the Lake District at all…..!
