For the water lovers the lakes offer a variety of boat trips and water sports, all with spectacular views of the surrounding hills and mountains. Properties worth visiting include Holker Hall, Muncaster Castle, Sizergh Castle, Hill Top (home of Beatrix Potter), Wordsworth House (Cockermouth) and Townend. Nearby there is Fell Foot Park for picnicks and boat hire.
Made famous by A Wainwright, the fells of Windermere, Coniston, Borrowdale, Ennerdale, Buttermere, Grasmere, Langdale, Wasdale, Eskdale (and more) - together with their delightful towns and villages nestled in the Lakeland valleys and woods - makes for an unlimited vista of scenic beauty.
