The Lake District is well known for its stunning scenery, beautiful mountains and lakes, picturesque valleys, picture-postcard villages and breathtaking views. England’s largest national park is the perfect choice for anyone who loves the outdoors. With over 3,100 kilometres of rights of way giving access to much of the mesmerising countryside, there is endless opportunity to walk and cycle through the landscape that inspired so many writers and artists, including William Wordsworth, Beatrix Potter, Arthur Ransome, Samuel Taylor Coleridge and the immensely talented Alfred Wainwright.
On this holiday you can choose to explore hidden places, and hike or scramble on the fells, cycle on country lanes and trails. Admire the scenery around England’s largest lake, Windermere, and highest mountain, Scafell Pike, visit wonderful museums and discover the joys of Lakeland towns and villages such as Ambleside, Keswick, Coniston and Hawkshead. Make sure you try out the local delicacies – Grasmere gingerbread is a firm favourite.
