A beautiful National Park in the northern region of Cumbria, England. A popular holiday destination that draws visitors with its scenic lakes, tarns and dramatic fells.
As England’s largest National Park, covering 2362 KM2, the Lake District is home to many incredible sights and locations including the deepest lake in England, the highest peak in England, the UK’s largest natural lake and many more phenomena.
When entering the Lake District (also known as ‘the Lakes’), you notice instantly the difference in your surroundings, from the vibrant shades of foliage, to the rolling peaks (fells), dense forestry and the numerous lakes and tarns.
Travelling through the Lakes you'll come across a well known Herdwick sheep or two at every corner, often roaming free across the roads. As well as Herdwick's you may be lucky enough to see Highland Cows, the illusive Red Squirrels and of a night, perhaps even a Deer.
Although full of small winding country roads the Lake District remains accessible to motorhomes with both passing places and larger roads running the depth of the National Park.
With a multitude of Lakes to swim in, an abundance of trails to hike and many exciting attractions to visit, the Lake District has something for everyone, from the youngest to the oldest members of your family, as well as plenty to explore for your four-legged family members.
This area of England is popular with all age groups due to its variety of different offerings, all available for you to explore for as little or as long a time as you’d like to spend, from a weekend away to a week or two.
