Lake District

An outdoor lover’s paradise, the Lake District, located in Cumbria, is England's largest national park. Rich in natural beauty and birth place of William Wordsworth, the Lake District has been an inspiration to artists, poets and authors such as Beatrix Potter, Samuel Coleridge and John Ruskin.

Climb England’s highest mountain, Scafell Pike, and swim or sail on its deepest lakes as you meander the Lake District’s 3,500km of walking and cycling paths. For those seeking a little more adventure there are vast opportunities to rock climb, abseil, horse ride and kayak, fish and take a boat ride on the park’s 16 lakes, including Lake Windermere. A scenic round of golf is highly recommended, weather permitting! Alongside its spectacular natural scenery, Cumbria’s many towns and villages play host to idyllic country hotels, pubs and shops.

We have been on expensive and luxurious holidays in the past, but the service and communication Ampersand has provided has far exceeded those offered by other agencies.
- Susan Ford, India
I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.
- Matthew Nicklin, North India
So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!
- Krista Weir, Sri Lanka
We had a wonderful holiday - everything was perfect. Thank you for helping us to make a thoughtful plan to enjoy and make most out of our trip. The places we visited, the guides, the transportation and driver, the hotels selected... Everything was great!
- Jaime Benitez, South India
Everything you did for us whilst we were away was hugely appreciated, and Ampersand has been exemplary in every way. I'll always recommend you!
- Mr Richard Stoughton, Sri Lanka
Difficult to articulate just how good the service from you and your team really was. We know you will continue to do well and hope we have the chance to seek your assistance again before long.
- Mr & Mrs Manson, North India
Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. We were shown around like visiting dignitaries, the hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Ampersand is!
- Leslie Siben, India
Ampersand’s details preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet/direct booking age. Shalmali was a delight to work with – before and during our trip.
- Mr David Wallace, North India
