Lake District Self Catering Accommodation To Book
The dramatic landscape of the Lake District is like nowhere else in the UK. The hills and valleys are a direct result of the glaciers that ravaged the land millions of years ago. The long mystical lakes, lush green forests and rich moorland, provide acres of wilderness to explore. The Lakes themselves range in size (and popularity) from the largest; Windermere, and Ullswater to little gems such as Buttermere and Grasmere. The Lakes are also a walkers paradise, whether for gentle lakeside rambles, or trekking across the Fells and mountain tops such as Scafell Pike, Skiddaw and Helvellyn. There is also plenty of history to keep you interested while walking, with Roman remains, ancient stone circles and monuments to English literary greats. Enjoy, for example, a romantic visit to Dove Cottage or Hill Top, the delightful homes of Wordsworth and Beatrix Potter.
