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.
