Lake District & Cumbria
Experience the sheer serenity and calm beauty of the many lakes, hills and woodlands in this beautiful part of the country. As an outdoor activity mecca, you’ll find many opportunities for hiking, cycling and even swimming in the warmer months. The environment houses many English species of waterfowl, ospreys, red squirrels and many more inhabitants that make this pristine location their home. The area has long been known as a pilgrimage for artists and writers seeking inspiration – from poet William Wordsworth to children’s book writer, Beatrix Potter, who in their own way, weaved the enchanting essence of the Cumbrian surrounds into their works.
Visitors often enjoy walking the many Lakeland Fells, within the Lake District National Park. Offering up easy riverside walks, to tougher marshland trekking and hiking up mountains. The area showcases an abundant wealth of wonderful pathways, cycle routes and areas of outstanding natural beauty to explore, from the sparkling Lake Windermere, which is the largest of the Lakes (in fact, it’s the largest natural lake in Europe); to the fascinating local culture and history of the city of Carlisle, beginning as a Roman settlement created to house the soldiers needed for the forts at Hadrian’s Wall.
