famous home of the English Lake District, the mostly rural county of Cumbria is
often considered to be one of the most beautiful regions in the UK.
with unique places to stay, there is plenty to discover in this stunning
county, including part of the Yorkshire Dales, the vastly underrated Eden
Valley, and the North Pennines to name just a few.
course, the Lake District National Park is a reliable tourist draw, positioned
in the hilly Cumbrian centre.
Windermere, the largest body of water in England, is the most visited
area, but there are so many more Lake District hotspots to explore, including
Keswick, Ullswater and Wastwater (voted England’s favourite view!)
capital, Carlisle, is a bustling market and industrial town, and as a major
railway junction, serves as an ideal starting point for exploring the
county. Southern Cumbria is home to the
Furness Peninsula and the Eden Valley, beautifully positioned between the North
Pennines – an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty – and the Lake District.
Cumbria also includes part of the Yorkshire Dales National Park, with its
refreshing collection of river valleys and hills that are a delight to spend
time in. Activity-lovers will enjoy
tackling the many long-distance routes that cross the National Park, including
the Pennine Way, the Dales Way and the Coast to Coast Path.
Cumbria for a holiday that uniquely and unforgettably combines spectacular
natural beauty, relaxation and adventure.
