The landscape of the Lakes is as breathtaking as you’ll find in Switzerland – a sweeping panorama of humpbacked mountains, razorblade crags and scree-covered hillsides, the picturesque natural lakes are among Britain’s largest.
There is more to Cumbria than its world-famous natural environment. There are many towns and idyllic villages to explore, whether nestled in valleys, on the side of a lake or along the coastline each place has its own story to tell and a character to discover.
This area is also full of history and culture, from abandoned mines around Honister and the ruined abbey of Furness to the literary landmarks of Dove Cottage and Rydal Mount, both former homes of William Wordsworth. Not to mention Beatrix Potter, of course.
From boat hire to bike hire and canoes to electric boats you can do it all on Lake District holidays.
