The Lake District is world famous for its large, open spaces. The mountains, valleys, and lakes inspired some of the great romantic poets including Blake, Shelley, and Wordsworth. Beatrix Potter's home near Windermere is a popular attraction and there is a wealth of options for the serious walker or the more leisurely.
The Local Valleys
The quiet and clean air alone provides a luxurious break from the fast-paced life.
