Share your love of the Lakes and win your own family adventure

As part of English Tourism Week, a new competition is being launched to find a Lake District loving family to review a free holiday in the heart of the World Heritage Site.

Lake District Estates is on the lookout for a ‘Family Feedback Champion’ who would be offered a coveted position as an honorary ambassador for the family-owned business.

The reward for posting all about their adventures across their social media channels would be a complementary 3 or 4 night stay at one the company’s holiday parks, jumping on board two iconic Lake District attractions - Ullswater Steamers and Ravenglass & Eskdale Railway – along the way.

Rachel Bell, Head of Marketing and Business Development at Lake District Estates, says:

“What our customers think matters, which is why we’re on the lookout for our first-ever ‘Family Feedback Champion’.

What the family unit looks like is down to the applicant; it could be a family of five with small lively children or an older single traveller exploring with their four-legged friend.  We’ve been helping families discover this world-class destination for more than eighty years and we want to hear from everyone, recognising that ‘family’ means different things to us all.

“All that’s needed to enter is a genuine love for exploring the Lake District and an enthusiasm for sharing your experiences using an inspiring mix of words, photos and smartphone videos on your social media platforms. If you’re happy to be photographed and willing to provide a short review of your trip, we’d love to hear from you!”

She adds, “And what better time to launch the competition than during English Tourism Week, a national celebration highlighting the diverse, exciting and vibrant tourism experiences on offer in the country’s leading visitor destinations.”

The competition launch also coincides with the launch of the new Perfect Escapes brochure aimed at inspiring future visits.

Families can make their bid to become a ‘Family Feedback Champion’ using a simple online form before 5pm on Thursday 20 April. The ultimate winner will be chosen by a judging panel.
