Around Cumbria & the Lake District

Cumbria offers an experience like no other. Whichever part you are in, beautiful scenery is a given. The timeless landscape of the Lake District boasts adventure and heritage, with its sparkling lakes and serene mountain views. Furthermore, it has inspired many famous poets since the 18th Century, including William Wordsworth, Samuel Taylor Coleridge, and Robert Southey.

The Lake District is a world apart, yet easy to reach. Explore the area and see it with your own eyes. There is the classic Lakeland of Windermere, England’s largest lake and the main tourist destination. Sat upon it is Bowness, and the villages of Grasmere and Hawkshead. The North Lakes are much quieter, with Keswick at the heart of it all.

Bask in the beauty of it all like so many have done before.
