All our accommodation and non-accommodation memberships include a listing on our popular visitor-facing website, which enjoys over 23 million page views and thousands of pounds worth of bookings a year. Our web team work hard to constantly develop the site’s content, images and usability to keep Golakes as #theplacetobe for potential visitors looking to book accommodation, plan their holiday and discover more about Cumbria.

Your Golakes listing gives you the ability to:

  • Manage your availability through your Guestlink account.
  • Take real-time bookings, visitors’ preferred method.
  • Fully control your account, including updating images, details and availability as often as you wish.
  • Integrate with a wide range of other booking systems to make your administration as easy as possible (contact us for the most up to date list of systems).

Golakes is more than a booking site – it is also a key advertising tool for the entirety of Cumbria, with detailed information on specific areas, things to do, places to dine out and many other methods of inspiring visitors to make the very most of the county – contact us for more information on specific parts of the site and how you can get involved with them.

Sell Tickets Online with Golakes!

Do you offer online booking for your activities? Perhaps you run a restaurant with an online booking service or sell tickets in advance to your customers?

Another benefit of Cumbria Tourism membership is the option to enhance your listing with a direct link to your own booking webpage, streamlining the process for customers to increase orders.

If you do not currently use an online system don’t worry! You can still make the most of this service by linking to a product page, or we can also advise on third-party systems. Contact us at for more information.

Additional Golakes Advertising

We also offer Banner advertising spaces and ‘Spotlights’ on a selection of prominent pages of Golakes.

Banners offer a quick, measurable affordable exposure to our visitors for as little as £30 + VAT per month.

The adverts can either link to your Golakes entry or an external website, whichever you believe will best maximise your bookings.
