As you enter the Lake District National Park, the landscape changes into a world that has a character all its own, ranging from peaceful lakes and valleys to dramatic mountains and glorious fell tops. There is no other place in the UK quite like it. It is home to Windermere, our largest natural lake, and to Scafell Pike, the highest mountain in England. Countless writers, artists and craftspeople have found inspiration in the Lake District. Traditional farming and local industry have been carefully and meticulously managed for many years to safeguard the natural and outstanding beauty of the area.
In 2017, as a result of these many years of careful management, the Lake District was awarded UNESCO World Heritage Site status.
In this noisy modern age, the Lake District remains unspoiled, and a haven of peace and tranquillity. What could be more relaxing than sitting by a quiet babbling brook, listening to the birds and enjoying your favourite drink, possibly with a tasty snack to nibble on! The Lake District is full of great places to eat, interesting places to visit, and lovely people to meet!
