Basque country bliss in The Lake District
Waterfalls, quaint villages, majestic mountains and vast stretches of forest. You’d be forgiven for thinking you were in the Basque country. The Lake District’s fascinating history, delicious delights, and wide-open spaces are all right here to uncover. Explore remote mountain-ranges, untouched countryside and the homes of historic icons like Beatrix Potter’s Hilltop, and Wordsworth’s Dove Cottage, where the views from their homes inspired stories and poems that made history. Indulge in The Original Grasmere Gingerbread, a unique treat created by Sarah Nelson in 1854. Stroll off-the-beaten-track through cloud-tipped peaks, and past breathtaking horizons reflecting on glass-like lakes, or simply hop on a Windermere Lake Cruise and sit back and relax, taking in the breathtaking mountainscapes. You don’t have to be an adventurer to fall in love with the Lake District. This is your world away, in The Lake District.
