At all parks the only reliable connection is through Vodafone. It is virtually impossible to get a signal with any other network. We strongly recommend guests consider getting a pay-as-you-go Vodafone SIM when staying in case of emergencies or the need to contact relatives.

Because the Lakes is very mountainous there is a good chance it will rain – sometimes very heavily! We recommend you go fully prepared for all seasons at whatever time of year you visit. Keeping close attention to the weather forecast is particularly important if you are going out onto the fells. It is worth checking Lake District Weatherline regularly for the latest forecast.
