"The Lakes - Under Construction" Lake District National Park by steventilly
Lake District National Park Travel Guide: 487 reviews and 1,306 photos
Probably my favourite place in the country, and the place I always long to be when the sun is shining. And even when it's not.
We''ve been here in all seasons actually, and yet never been lucky enough to see major amounts of snow. We're thinking of taking a Christmas break over here this year, so hopefully we'll see some then.
We've covered almost every inch of the Lakes, seen every lake, a lot of the tarns, most of the mountains and many of the villages. We like most other areas of the lakes better than we like the southern lakes. The area around Windermere (with the exception of Hawkshead) is not really what we like. Windermere is too commercialised (even for the lakes!) and there is not a lot of lakeside access down there, nor good fell walking. (There are odd exceptions of course).
Borrowdale, Wastwater, the walk between them via Styhead Pass, Ullswater and all of the fells around it (especially Helvellyn), Buttermere, Grasmere/Rydal/Loughrigg and Langdale are our favourite parts.
We often just head off to Keswick (via Ullswater) for a weekend, because that's easy for us to reach, it's nice, and there is some great walking aroundabouts.
This page is "under construction" for the next few days (at least!)
- Pros:Beautiful Towns, Villages, Scenery, Walks, Pubs, Food...
- Cons:Can be (over)crowded at times.
- In a nutshell:My favourite place in the UK, and very conveniently placed.
