5 Star timeshare ownership in the Lake District

How many times do visitors come back time and after, year after year to the Lake District?

The Lake District is a super family holiday destination, so much to see and do, a super couples destination and a super place to come and unwind in later life. When talking to visitors and it is evident they have been coming to the Lake District for years and regularly also.

Bearing this in mind, timeshare could be a great option as it is also apparent that many visitors will also book the same accommodation each year too. Timeshare is often not thought of as an option in the Lake District after all, there are so many self catering cottages, B&B’s and hotels to choose from but having a place that is your own for a particular week or weeks each year at a fraction of the cost of purchasing a holiday property there is quite tempting, no missing out of that desired week again.

Holiday homes in the Lake District are very popular and in the National Park, also very expensive. It then becomes a worry thinking about and carrying out the upkeep on the property. Timeshare eradicates all this especially on a resort such as The Langdale Estate. With a choice of properties from lodges to traditional slate cottages, the estate is really quite special so too is its location in the Langdale Valley.

Everything is taken care including clean products, bed linen and towels so the holiday starts right away. The Langdale Estate have a Timeshare Owners community and website but being as the estate also has restaurants and bars open to none residents, 2 hotels and leisure facilities, there is always a lovely mix of people and it is an excellent place for families. Further benefits include up to 15% savings across the Estate in the Spa, Bars and Restaurants, and in The Langdale 4 Star Luxury Hotel and the Brimstone Hotel.
