Things to do in the Lake District

If you can muster the energy to leave the comfort of the Yurt and the warmth of the wood burning stove then there is just so much you can see and do in the Lake District.

Outdoor Activities

For those seeking the thrill of adventure there is so much on offer in all corners the Lake District. This year we are working with our partners at Mobile Adventure, Green Man Survival and Keswick Canoe & Bushcraft to bring you a huge array of specialist outdoor instructor led activities. Offering almost 40 different land- and water-based activities, survival and bushcraft adventures there’s so much on offer you’ll wonder how to fit it all in.

Wild Guides

If you are seeking that quiet, out of the way picnic spot, perfect wild swimming hole or just want to get away from it all, the Lake District has some of the most beautiful wild places you could ever dream of. It’s not always easy to find some of the more out of the way places, so we have teamed up with the guys at Wild Publishing to bring you the Wild Guide to the Lake District & Dales, Wild Swimming & Wild Running guides. All provide a stunning and unique guide to some of the best the Lake District has to offer. The guides are available to purchase with your booking.

Hampers for Glampers

Why not treat your self to a luxury Lake District Hamper as part of your stay with us? This year we have teamed up with the guys at ‘A Days Walk’ to bring you some of the finest delicacies the Lake District has to offer. Every item comes from a local farmer, grower, producer or business within A Day’s Walk of the heart of the Lake District. So its fresh, clocks up next to no food miles, is often made in small batches or is seasonal – and crucially it’s some of the finest food and drink in the land. Enjoy the unique taste of the Lakes and experience a special connection with this beautiful place, its people and its traditions.


It’s a fact that food always tastes better outdoors. The yurts come fully equipped with a double gas burner, wood burning stove with integrated oven and BBQ as well as a well stocked kitchen, so you can really go to town when it comes to cooking. Check out our recipes section which has some great ideas for some top camp grub and a full list of essentials to bring from home. Download, bring away with you and make it a gastro-glamping holiday to remember.

Our things to do section provides information on all these and much more. Your adventure starts here. Please contact the team at Long Valley Yurts for further information and booking.
