When deciding where to visit in Cumbria, your thoughts may first turn to the Lake District, the largest national park in England, known for its glimmering lakes, enchanting forests, and spectacular mountains. The central area of the national park provides no shortage of excellent accommodation, eateries, and country pubs, as well as offering easy access to the other regions. Head north to discover Derwentwater, known as the Queen of the Lakes, and Skiddaw, the fourth highest mountain in England. To the east, there is beautiful Lake Ullswater, to the west you will find ancient woods and mesmerising waterfalls, whilst the south is home to Windermere, the largest natural lake in England.
Beyond the Lake District, there’s the idyllic coastal town of Ravenglass, and Eden Valley: home of the River Eden and delightful scenic walking trails. Meanwhile, the Yorkshire Dales provide stunning scenery consisting of moors, hills, valleys, and quaint villages.
