A heart stopper

Published on: 21 May 2014

A million plus worldwide web followers are being wowed in an international Lakes love-in.

From Bristol to Bangkok, Inverness to India, London to Lisbon visitors to acclaimed www.lakedistrict.gov.uk are being offered a unique chance to see the famed landscape for themselves.

Lake District National Park has teamed up with holiday cottage company Heart of the Lakes to offer a free holiday for four.

A package of accommodation, boating on Coniston, afternoon tea at Brockhole, the Lake District Visitor Centre on the shores of Windermere, and a whole lot more are up for grabs.
Brockhole development programme director, Adam Thomas, said it was the first time the Lake District's massive web and social media audience had been given the chance to win an exclusive 'come and see it' deal.

He explained: "This is the perfect opportunity to turn virtual experiences into the real thing. It also gives us the chance to see who is following us."

Already running on the national park's website, the competition finishes at the end of August.

Adam said although it was aimed at anyone and everyone, it would have special appeal to young families.

"The winner will get free use of a beautiful Lake District cottage, Coniston Boating Centre's hire fleet, a spa and endless treats through our hugely popular events programme.

"Where else could you get the chance of 500 activities, including 300 guided walks, many of them free, in spell-binding scenery?

"From bushcraft to biking, mountain challenges to family fun, there's something for all ages and abilities.

"We pack some powerful punches. Take a punt on this competition and instead of visiting us online, join our 15 million actual visitors!"
