Things to see and do nearby
- North West England
The North West of England is most famous for its beautiful Lake District, which has inspired so many poets and authors over the centuries. Spectacular scenery and a feast of local produce to try provides a wonderful way to enjoy a summer holiday, romantic break or family gathering. This is an area to seek out active enjoyment; to walk, climb on the mountains, to sail and fish on the lakes and tarns, cycle or challenge yourself to a high rope walk. For the less energetic who, nevertheless want to enjoy the spectacular scenery, there are some fantastic pubs and restaurants where you can enjoy local, seasonal produce, such as Herdwick meat, Morecambe Bay shrimps, locally made cheese, Cumberland sausage, sticky toffee pudding or a local beer - there are 13 micro breweries in Cumbria. The National Trust cares for a quarter of the Lake District, including the central fell area, the major valley heads and six of the main lakes and much of their shoreline. All of our cottages are set in beautiful Lake District countryside.
- Lake District
The spectacular Lake District is considered by many to be the jewel in England\'s crown, offering the country\'s highest mountains, most stunning scenery, and loveliest countryside. Above all, it is a place to seek out active enjoyment; to walk, climb on the mountains, to sail and fish on the lakes. The National Trust protects about a quarter of the Lake District, including the central fell area, the major valley heads, and six of the main lakes and much of their shoreline. Among the National Trust\'s historic properties are two houses of immense literary heritage. The Georgian Wordsworth House in Cockermouth is the birthplace of the poet William Wordsworth, and Hill Top, a petite 17th-century house, in the hamlet of Near Sawrey, is where Beatrix Potter wrote many of her children\'s stories.
