Travel less to see more when visiting Cumbria and the Lake District

Countless studies have found the majority of guests visiting for a night or weekend away come from within a 2 hour travel time radius. This is most definitely the case with visitors to the Cumbria and the Lake District with those coming from further afield for a full week or more holiday.

Less than a 2 hour drive means more time can be enjoyed on the short break. 2 hours from Cumbria takes in central Scotland, the North East, Yorkshire, Manchester and even Liverpool. Choose to stay in the eastern region of Cumbria, still perfect for exploring the key Lake District locations such as Windermere, Ambleside and Keswick yet from Manchester, travellers are looking at less than an hour and a half drive time.

The location and inside the warming and inviting Tebay Services Hotel

Approximately just 1 hour 22 minutes from, for example Salford, is the Tebay Services Hotel in Cumbria. Straight off the motorway yet quiet, secluded giving it the name “the hidden gem”. The hotel’s location means it’s just 25 miles to Pooley Bridge and Ullswater to the north and the same distance to Windermere and the central Lakes to the south also adding the extra bonus of the Eden Valley and Northern Pennines on the doorstep too. Great for walking, sightseeing and cycling, the hotel offers a choice of room types, an excellent restaurant serving local produce and a lounge with roaring fire and well stocked bar.
