Advertising on WalkLakes

Our web site offers visitors detailed descriptions of a wide variety of walks around the Lake District along with information on every hill and other walking related information. As a result it is now the first port of call for an ever increasing number of people coming to the Lake District for a walking holiday. So if you want to attract walkers to stay in your property you might like to think about joining the properties in Cumbria advertising with us.

If you do then your property appears in several places on our site:

We also publish an e-mail newsletter several times a year to registered users which, among other things, promotes our accommodation and that currently has a circulation of 7,920 Lake District walkers and is rising very rapidly. We also promote our advertisers through our social media accounts on Twitter, Facebook and Google+.

Unlike some people we don't charge per booking or per link visit, instead we offer two simple options:

1. Brief Entry

If you have your own web site, we can offer just a brief entry with one photograph and a text description of up to 50 words which is shown in our listing linking directly to your site. Here's an example chosen at random from among our hostels:

NC Non-Classified
£15.00-18.00 per bed
Situated at 1550ft on the slopes of Skiddaw and only accessible on foot or by mountain bike, this traditional hostel offers a real escape from it all with the friendly atmosphere of an alpine hut. Self-catering with a well-stocked shop and bar. Private rooms and dorm beds available.

Prices vary according to the type of accommodation as follows:

Type of advert Cost
Bed and Breakfast or Guest House £39 per year advertise
Hotel, Inn, Restaurant with rooms etc £39 per year advertise
Hostel or bunkhouse FREE if a link is added back to our walks for your area advertise
Self Catering Property £39 per year advertise
Camp Site or Caravan Site FREE if a link is added back to our walks for your area advertise

2. Full Service

Alternatively this option gives you a basic listing as before but when the visitor clicks it they are taken to your own web page on our site with up to 99 photos and full details of the facilities you offer, along with a description of your accommodation, your location on a map, and details of our walks nearest to you. If you have your own web site the page includes a link to that in the details.

Again here's an example chosen at random from among our advertisers with full service listings (reload the page to see more):
