Holidays to the Lake District National Park
England’s largest national park is a sublime mixture of lakes, forests and fells. Here England’s highest mountain, Scafell Pike, her longest lake, Windermere, and her deepest lake, Wastwater, vie for attention with a multitude of dramatic landscapes. The larger lakes, each with its own special character, radiate out from a central point and there are hundreds of smaller lakes, or tarns.
This is a paradise for rock climbers and walkers of all abilities. The lakes offer cruises and a multitude of watersports. Here too are Roman remains, stone circles, historic houses, and intimate associations with William Wordsworth and Beatrix Potter.
