- Things to Do
In the centre of the lakes the Burnside Hotel and Spa is just a stone's throw from many special places of interest. There are over 50 visitor centres and attractions some of the more famous include Beatrix Potter's 17th century house from where she penned many of her famous children's stories and William Wordsworth beloved homes; Dove Cottage and Rydal Mount. There are an array of historic homes and gardens. Many attractions are open all year round and all are within easy reach of the hotel.
The Burnside is ideally located for touring the Lake District so take time to explore the countryside that inspired Wordsworth, enter Beatrix Potter's 'land of stories' and follow in Wainwright's footsteps, high among the mountains and fells. Or just marvel at the truly magical splendour of the lakes.
