For Press

If you are a journalist or blogger looking to write a feature or article on all that Ullswater has to offer, we can help.

We work with our partners at Cumbria Tourism and Visit Britain to create tailor-made familiarisation trips which feature the very best that Ullswater has to offer and that will appeal to your readership.

From outdoor adventure weekends, Wainwright walks and the Ullswater Way to Swallows and Amazons-style family activities, culture, heritage and serious food – our members are varied, high-quality and customer-focussed tourism businesses who work together to achieve press coverage of regional, national and international note.

We can also provide:

  • Familiarisation trips
  • Image libraries
  • Regular Press Releases
  • Tailor-written copy
  • Quotes and suitable candidates for interviews
  • Regular blog materials
  • Offers and prize giveaways
