Enter our Lake District photo competition on Instagram!

Consider yourself a keen photographer?

Lake District Hotels have teamed up with Our Lake District on Instagram to scout out some of your best photos of the Northern Lake District.

The Lake District as a whole is a large place, but the Northernmost part of the Lakes consists of Bassenthwaite, Derwentwater, Thirlmere, Crummock Water, Buttermere, Loweswater and Ullswater plus the surrounding fells. The Lake District National Park association describes the Northern part of the Lake District as “the most peaceful” with plenty of opportunity to snap some idyllic photos.


To celebrate the fact that visitors are now allowed to stay overnight in our hotels and showcase the beauty of the area, we’re giving away 5 FANTASTIC PRIZES to the creators of our 5 favourite images.

What’s more, to increase your chances of winning, you are able to submit multiple entries!
