The Lake District is one of the most dramatic and beautiful corners of the UK. From mountainous backdrops to fast-flowing waterfalls, dramatic lakes to heather-clad moorland, it truly is the beating heart of Cumbria.

The beloved National Park is one of the UK’s most popular, with principal towns like Kendal, Keswick and Windermere attracting visitors all year round.

The Lake District is a fantastic destination to visit throughout the year, no matter what your tastes and interests. If you prefer a tranquil, more secluded holiday, try one of the quieter hamlets amongst the rolling countryside.
