The wonders of the Lake District

There is a corner of England that has been called ‘ Britain’s breathing space’ and the description couldn’t me more apt. With miles of unspoilt countryside spread out before you, interspersed with lakes and mountains, the purest air you will breathe and an abundance of wildlife you are unlikely to find anywhere else, The Lake District National Park epitomises the Great British countryside, and it’s just waiting there to welcome you.

Busy market towns and minute villages offer the visitor the kind of olde worlde England that is so hard to find these days, with charming guest houses and good old fashioned ale houses offering a quality pint and more often than not a hearty meal. Romantic weekends are a very popular reason for taking a trip to the Lake District, but by far the main reason to take a trip here is to make the most of what it has to offer those who love being outdoors.

Rock climbing, abseiling, canoeing, cycling, horse riding, hiking, walking, it’s hard to think of an outdoor activity that you can’t do in the Lake District. With numerous festivals and special events spread throughout the year, it is very easy to see why millions flock here to experience the great outdoors at its best, and breathe in some of the freshest air you can experience anywhere.

From Bassenthwaite in the north to Windermere in the south, there is a wealth of discoveries to be made. Whether it is a tranquil water for a romantic stroll or spotting some of the unique wildlife that exist in the area, or finishing of a day walking through the countryside with a glass of real ale, there is so much to see and do in the Lake District that the first thing you do when you go home is starting planning your next trip.
