Famous for its lakes and fells, loved by the literary greats such as William Wordsworth, Arthur Ransome and Beatrix Potter, the wild and romantic Lake District in Cumbria is a haven for nature-loving, outdoorsy types.
Enjoy exploring the UK’s largest national park while on the lookout for red squirrels, otters, Natterjack toads and Golden Eagles. Climb England’s highest mountain, Scafell Pike; walk around, or sail across England’s largest lake, Lake Windermere.
If you want an energetic holiday, numerous activities can be undertaken including mountain biking, hiking, climbing, canoeing or kayaking. For less strenuous goings-on, visit the charming towns and villages of Amberwick, Keswick and Grasmere with their traditional shops and historic sites; enjoy hearty meals in front of roaring log fires in atmospheric, old-world inns or discover the hidden gem of Ullswater on a “Steamer” cruise.
