A Busy Start to 2017

Ten press trips have been organised and taken place across January, with titles such as National Geographic Traveller, Rough Guides, and The Telegraph. The team have also handled more than 50 media and image enquiries so far, resulting in widespread national coverage including an article for Another Place, The Lake in Yahoo! Style’s ’18 of the hottest hotels opening in 2017’ list. Meanwhile, a highlight for Heart of the Lakes was Olive Magazine’s  Five of the best holiday cottages for foodies feature, both online and in the March edition of the magazine.

We are currently working with Robinsons Brewery, who will be reopening the doors to the iconic Queens Head pub in Troutbeck in April 2017. Coverage already includes Boutique HotelierHotel Owner and Hospitality and Catering News.

Sunday Times Travel magazine included a seasonal round-up of ‘Lake District log fires’ in its January edition, while there was wide-ranging coverage to commemorate 50 years since Donald Campbell’s tragic death on Coniston Water in 1967.

And we also released our 2017 Holiday Guide this month, which has already gained extensive regional coverage.
