The Low Wood Bay Hotel in particular looks really family friendly as it offers a kids club (Sams Club) which offers a trip on the steam railway and a visit to the Tropical Butterfly House. There's also the Low Wood watersports centre which has every watersport you could imagine wanting to try (if you're braver than me). They happily offer kids menus too along with good rates for children when sharing a room which all helps.
I've also discovered the area is famous for having a very special person live there, at Hill Top house which was once owned by the author of the famous Peter Rabbit books, Beatrix Potter. My children (aged 5 and 2) are not quite at the age to thoroughly enjoy the books but I used to love them as a youngster and I would be really curious to see where the author lived especially as the pictures I've seen of the house conjure up such a magical and peaceful place. It looks like such a lovely home to sit and come up with well loved fairytales and whimsical characters.
Yes please to all of the above I say. I'd better get a move on with booking up I think. Have you visited a particular location in the English Lakes that you love and would recommend?
