Top 10 October Half Term Ideas by Dinah Hatch

"I took my two children on an Ullswater Steamer when they were barely old enough to say “hang on, we thought the Lake District’s tourist industry was more focused on the grey pound” and they adored it. We snaked along its dog leg turns through utterly stunning scenery, our contemplative silence only broken to remark that we believed Paul McCartney owned a house in the distance and what a shame he had taken up with that younger model. Gloriously looming Helvellyn dominates the head of the lake and whether you’re caught in classic Cumbrian mist or lucky enough to get a sunny spell, the views are world-class from these lovely heritage steamers. The route connects to some of the most famous and loveliest hikes in the Lakes. Take afternoon tea in spectacular Glenridding, go bird watching in Jenkins Field or hire a bike along the way.

Stay: Lake Lodges (self-catering) Esthwaite View, Hawkshead, Cumbria"
