The Lake District is one of the UK's favourite holiday destinations. Renowned for its hill walking or for simply visiting the beautiful lakes of this north western part of England. There are an abundance of walks criss-crossing the landscape from traditional rights of way, established walks, and National Trails such as the Cumbria Way. Some walks require all the gear, including maps and compass, boots, backpack and tent. Others, a simple pack of sandwiches, and a bottle of water.
Cyclists are spoilt for choice with an abundance of country lanes.
Explore the towns and villages and escape the hustle and bustle of city life. Visit the small villages off the beaten track, or the ever popular established resorts such as Windermere, Ambleside, Cartmel, Ulverston, Grange over Sands, Newby Bridge, Hawkshead, Coniston, Ambleside, and Kendal. Whether you are thinking of a weekend break in the Cumbrian Lakes or a longer stay holiday there is plenty to keep you occupied in Cumbria and the Lake District.
