The Lake District
The English Lake District is the most beautiful part of the country with a landscape that has attracted artists, poets, tourists and outdoor enthusiasts from all over the world. It is bidding to become designated A World Heritage Site in 2016. Each of the lakes that give the Lake District its name are unique and offer something a little different to visitors. Derwentwater, the “Jewel of the Lake District”, is particularly scenic, with many shoreline and woodland walks on land cared for by the National Trust. It offers some of the best boating and water sport opportunities, with a number of marinas and boat hire companies serving visitors. Around the lake some of the fells rise to more than 3000 feet and to the south, Borrowdale gives access to some of the finest hill walks in the country. Keswick lies at the north end of the lake. An attractive little town with the distinctive Moot Hall standing proud over its market place, as well as being a shopping, tourist and accommodation centre, it is a focus for adventure sports and outdoor activities. The nearby Whinlatter Forest has a renowned visitor centre with a shop, cafe, and cycle centre with mountain biking trails, walking trails, and adventure activities and Go-Ape trail in the forest.
Garden Apartment is only a few minutes level walking distance to the shops, pubs, restaurants and attractions of Keswick. Just over the road and the footbridge across the River Greta lies Fitz Park, with its riverside meadows, woodland and gardens, tennis courts, bowling greens and superlative children's play area. The magnificently refurbished Victorian museum with its new cafe looks over the park. A few metres away is the tropical leisure pool with its slide and wave machine. And ten minute's walk brings you to the Theatre By The Lake which has a most varied and interesting programme of plays, music and events to suit all tastes throughout the year.
