Why the Lake District?

The Lake District is an ideal destination for lovers of the great outdoors; it's a region of breath-taking natural beauty, from the highest fells to the quietest valleys and from the sands of the Cumbrian coast to the rolling hills of North Yorkshire. Explore the 16 renowned and encompassing bodies of water that make up the Lake District, including the tranquil Buttermere, Rydal and Wast Water, plus the ever-popular Coniston and Windermere. Seasoned walkers can take up the challenge of mighty Skiddaw, Scafell Pike (England's highest mountain) and the ever-popular Helvellyn, while less agile visitors can enjoy strolls at lower levels around the shores of several of the smaller lakes, including Grasmere. For more fascinating activities to occupy your time, take a look at our Lake District Travel Guide.
