The Lake District

The Lake District is home to some of the most spectacular scenery in England. Designated as a National Park in 1951 to promote the area's outstanding beauty and the enjoyment of it, the Lake District National Park is one of the largest in the UK, at 880 square miles.

The Lake District

The Lake District is an area of superlatives that, once seen, you won't forget in a lifetime! Home to England's longest lake (Windermere at 10 miles long), the deepest lake (Wastwater, holder of the title "Britain's Favourite View" and 258 feet deep at its deepest point), the steepest road (the Hardknott Pass at 1 in 2.5 in places) and the highest mountain (Scafell Pike at 977m, or 3,210 feet).

An area of outstanding natural beauty, the Lake District offers an abundance of outdoor pursuits: Walking, climbing, touring, sailing & boating, cycling, fishing and there are even a host of quality golf courses throughout the area.

Close by is Hadrian's Wall, the most important monument built by the Romans in Britain, and running from the west of Carlisle across Cumbria to Newcastle in the north east.

"In a rural area with more good restaurants than most big cities can boast, chef Andrew Burton has turned the Rothay into a sparkling gastronomic gem. Not only is the food clever and delicious, this artist of a chef ensures it is incredibly beautiful too."
