The Cumbria/Lake District
The Lake District conjures up images of magnificent mountains and shimmering lakes and that is exactly what visitors find here. In fact the whole county of Cumbria is home to some of Britain's most beautiful scenery. This region has been a favourite all year round holiday destination for years and apart from its natural beauty it's also packed with lots of attractions and activities that cater for every kind of holidaymaker, from family holidays to romantic breaks for couples and from those who are looking for lots of activities and sports to those that prefer more gentle country pursuits. The Lake District National Park lies at the heart of Cumbria and contains well known and much loved holiday destinations such as Windermere, Bowness, Ambleside, Coniston and Grasmere, here there are lots of charming Lakeland villages to discover and visitor attractions for all the family. The northern and western lakes have miles of untouched natural rugged beauty and rural villages as well as being home to the historic northern lakes town of Keswick with its many shops, pubs and restaurants; providing a great holiday base. Other areas to discover include the Eden Valley, Cartmel peninsula, south east Cumbria and the Carlisle and Hadrian's Wall area; all equally beautiful and very handy for day trips into the lakes.
The open country that surrounds Garries Cottage is ideal for hikers with the magnificent Skiddaw rising up above the village of Bassenthwaite and Grisedale Pike to the south west just waiting to be climbed. Bassenthwaite Lake is a great place to fish or to sail. Ospreys can be spotted here and in between May and September you can watch the adults raising their youngsters from the live web camera feeds at Whinlatter Forest Park. Bassenthwaite village is largely an agricultural community with a small shop and pub serving both residents and visitors. Keswick and the ancient market town of Cockermouth are both within easy reach. Here more useful amenities can be found as well as an array of attractions, lakeside walks and interesting landmarks.
