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.
Dent is the only village in the dale and is abound with traditional cobbled streets and old stone buildings. The village is on the famous Settle to Carlisle railway and at Dent station, four miles from the village, you can hop on and choose to venture into the heart of the Yorkshire Dales or onwards to more of the Cumbrian valleys. The Heritage Centre in Dent is a great place to learn about the history of the area including the links to Adam Sedgwick, one of the greatest field geologists of his time. Learn how this landscape was formed, the people who used to live here and how they managed to build a community in such a remote place. Around three miles away is the bustle town of Sedbergh, renowned for its fantastic variety of bookshops and with a selection of good eateries and access to Cautley Spout, England's highest waterfall it's a popular day out for many holiday makers.
