A region of breathtaking beauty, with spectacular scenery, a land of lakes, tarns, rivers and waterfalls, mountains, moors, valleys and rolling countryside.
At the heart of which is the Lake District National Park. William Wordsworth described the area as "The loveliest spot that man hath ever found". This glorious setting also shields a turbulent history of Roman occupation, Anglo/Scots border warfare and a land of myths and legends. Add to this its unique Agricultural Heritage and little wonder that it has been the inspiration of poets, writers and artists. Whether your interests lie in Historic Houses, Gardens, Ancient Castles, Picturesque Villages, Bustling Market Towns, Historic City, Stunning Scenery or its wealth of Literary and Artistic Inspirations - your choice is endless - they are all here and more.
