Many parking charges frozen in the Lake District
People who stay at country house hotels in the Lake District on a frequent basis will be able to benefit from free parking, the national park authority has confirmed.
Short-term parking will also be exempt from charges, as will coaches and residents, which may come as welcome news to many visitors.
The current fee of £2.20 will apply to anyone parking for less than two hours, but a maximum charge of £4 will be in place from the end of March for those staying for longer.
Richard Gunton, the authority's director of recreation and park management, said that the area is delighted to be able to freeze its prices for the majority of users for the past three years.
"Nearly all of the car parks where the national park authority charges for parking have additional facilities such as free public toilets, visitor centres or access areas," he added.
The national park is currently holding a number of events for children during half-term.
