Things to do instead of the Great North Swim this Weekend

RELDHSM0594 Although the Great North Swim has been postponed this weekend by event organisers Nova International, here in the heart of the Lake District we still have plenty going on.  On Twitter  @cragchris has put together small selection of events happening on the 3rd/4th/5th September 2010 which we have collated and put together in a list below.

With the weather forecast looking great for the weekend, and with our Last Minute 1 Night Mega Deal starting from just £49.00 per person now is the perfect time to book a last minute getaway.
