Lake District holiday cottages
A truly stunning mountainous region in the north of England, the Lake District is home to England’s deepest lake, Wastwater, its longest lake, Windermere and its highest mountain, Scafell Pike.
As England’s largest and most visited National Park, the Lake District is well known for its fells, forests and lakes as well as distinguished poets such as William Wordsworth and children’s author Beatrix Potter.
Home to the endangered red squirrel, it also boasts a wide range of bird species, including Ospreys and England’s only resident Golden Eagle.
Over the years, many have been drawn to explore the Lakes thanks to the books of Alfred Wainwright.
And if, after a hard day of fell running – or perhaps just wandering amongst Wordsworth’s daffodils – you fancy relaxing over a coffee or locally brewed beer, then the towns of Keswick, Ambleside, Bowness-on-Windermere and Windermere are all definitely worth a visit.
