Lake District

The Lake District - three words which conjure up a landscape so mythical and beautiful that you're already packing your bags for the break of a lifetime. At the end of tree-lined, winding roads and from the brow of each hill you'll discover unforgettable locations laid out before you.

This is England's showcase of beauty, an inspiration for poets and artists down the centuries, and today one of the finest destinations you could choose in Britain for a break of genuine peace and relaxation. The majesty of England's most beautiful lakes, Coniston, Windermere, Ullswater, all combine with a skyline of rugged mountains, green hills and valleys, where unspoilt villages and market towns await your arrival with a traditional welcome.

The Lake District offers all manner of opportunity for spending your hard-earned leisure time. From walking or rambling to enjoying a day's fishing or a leisurely cruise on the water, or a gentle ride on a steam railway, through to vigorous sports like water skiing, climbing or off-road adventures in lofty forest territory, this region has it all. There are few places in Europe which can offer such variety, such beauty and high standards of accommodation as the Lakes.
