The Lake District has it all, stunning scenery, picture-perfect villages, and plenty of opportunities for thrill seekers too.
The Lake District is made up of 19 tranquil lakes and 25 summits including England’s highest mountain, the formidable Scafell Pike. Whether you think of the peaks and pools of water as your natural playground or the perfect setting for a relaxing break, you won’t be disappointed. With an abundance of flora and fauna, it’s no wonder that William Wordsworth and Beatrix Potter were so inspired when they penned their much-loved works in the region and now you can see why for yourself.
Between basking on beaches (yes, we said beaches) and scaling Scafell, why not feast on local delicacies including Cumberland sausage, Kendal mint cakes and Hawkshead Relish? For a real flavour of the National Park, you might want to take a stroll through the region’s quaint villages and enjoy a drink in one of many centuries-old pubs. Taps at the old-world inns are filled with local ales brewed just a stones-throw away.
