The Lake District: fit for a princess!

Filed under Uncategorized

If it’s good enough for the Middleton family, it’s probably good enough for your family too!

Much has been documented about the Middleton family recently and, in particular, their love of the English Lake District. Even the new Middleton family coat of arms depicts it: the gold chevron in the centre represents Kate’s mother whose maiden name is Goldsmith whilst the white chevrons either side are said to symbolise the family’s love of mountains and, in particular, the Lake District.

The Lake District is arguably the most beautiful corner of England, its beauty having been documented for many generations by the likes of William Wordsworth and Beatrix Potter, among others.

And, according to an official biography, Kate’s love of hill walking continues to this day – a pastime that is also enjoyed by Prince William who makes regular visits to the county himself, as well as being Patron of Mountain Rescue England and Wales.

Anyone wanting to follow in the footsteps of the Middleton family for their own family holiday should consider our accommodation – it is ideally situated between two of England’s most beautiful national parks: the Lake District and the Yorkshire Dales. Our luxurious riverside apartment can comfortably accommodate a family of 4 and has still has some availability for the Summer holidays.
