The Cumbria/Lake District
Cumbria is home to the Lake District, also known as the Lakes or Lakeland is world renowned for the beautiful lakes and mountains (or fells). The Lake District is home to the highest mountain in England: Scafell Pike measuring 978m (3210 ft).
The National Park was founded in 1951 to offer protection to the well known beauty spots and landscape that has provided inspiration to generations of artists' writers and musicians.
From a stroll around Buttermere to a climb to the highest peak a holiday in the English lakes provides exercise for the body and relaxation for the mind.
Market towns such as Keswick and Cockermouth give the opportunity to sample the delights of Cumbrian fare many establishments now source their ingredients from local producers.
Whilst areas like Bowness on Windermere and Ambleside are extremely popular other less commercial locations like the Solway Coast and Allonby give you space and quiet with the vast open shingle beaches the majestic beauty of the Solway.

Keswick is a popular town offering a vast range of tourist attractions, shops, pubs and restaurants and many museums and other places of interest.

In addition to the weekly market the town centre has a tempting array of shops where you are sure to fin everything you’ll need from your daily requirements to that elusive special gift to take home. There is a vast array of independent and individual shops offering speciality foods, local produce, antiques, books, gifts, crafts and traditional toys, the town also has and an excellent choice of outdoor clothing and equipment retailers, thus earning the town the title of "Outdoor Retailer of the UK".
Derwent Water often referred to as "The Queen of Lakes" is located within the town of Keswick as well as occupying parts of Borrowdale, it is fed and drained by the River Derwent and measures approximately 3 miles long and 1 mile wide, Derwent Water is unusual in that it has four islands dotted along its length: Derwent, Lords, Rampsholme and St. Herbert’s. The lake also has cruises and row boats, allowing you to take advantage of the beautiful fells surrounding the lake. The Keswick Launch on Derwent Water sails from seven different points around the lake and also offer evening cruises.

Keswick has two main park areas Hope Park and Fitz Park. Hope Park is located between town centre and Derwent Water. It was originally donated to the town in 1925 by Sir Percy Hope and after his death the park was taken over by the Hope Park Charitable Trust. This magnificent park provides a quite area to admire the magnificent scenery. The park also has a Lakeland themed Crazy Golf Course, and 18 hole putting course and a 9 hole pitch and putt course.
