Lake District

Towns and Villages
Situated entirely within in the Lake District National Park, Windermere is the largest natural lake in England. It is one of the country`s most popular places for holidays and summer homes. For many years, power-boating and water-skiing have been popular activities on the lake. It`s surrounded by mountain peaks and villages, including Bowness-on-Windermere, where The World of Beatrix Potter Attraction displays exhibits on the children`s writer.
Ambleside is an idyllic village at the north end of Lake Windermere with wonderful warm weather even through late autumn. Ambleside is a good base for hiking, mountaineering and mountain biking. It has a selection of hotels, guesthouses, pubs and restaurants. Rydal, a small hamlet a couple of miles from Ambleside, is well-known as the longtime home of poet William Wordsworth, who lived here from 1813 until his death in 1850.
Ullswater is the second-largest lake in the English Lake District. Considered to be the most beautiful of the English lakes, it is often compared to the superb Lake Lucerne in Switzerland. The greatest attractions of Ullswater are the lake steamers which offer tourist trips around the lake. Another of Ullswater`s attractions is the spectacular waterfall of Aira Force on the lake`s western side.
Located on a lake of the same name, Grasmere is probably Cumbria`s most popular village. Most of the buildings date from the 19th or early 20th century, though the farms around Grasmere are much older. The parish church dates from the 13th century. The lake offers superb views, especially early morning in the summer, with the mist rising. At the center of the lake, there is an island, called simply `The Island`.
Kendal is a small town in Cumbria, best known as a center for tourism and as the home of Kendal mint cakes, which became world-famous when Sir Ernest Shackleton brought them along on his expedition to Antarctica. Its buildings constructed with the local grey limestone have earned it the nickname the `Auld Grey Town`. One of the main attractions is the Museum of Natural History and Archaeology, one of the oldest in the country.

WHY THE LAKE DISTRICT?

The Lake District, located in Cumbria in England`s northwest, is a mountainous region famous for its forests, waterfalls, and of course its lakes. The Lake District National Park, spread out across 911 square miles, is the United Kingdom`s most-visited national park. Towns and villages in this region include Windermere, which shares its name with England`s largest lake; Ambleside and Rydal, villages on the northern end of Lake Windermere; Ullswater, the second-largest lake in the Lake District, where Glenridding and Pooley Bridge are located; Grasmere, also known for its eponymous lake and arguably the most popular tourist village in Cumbria; and Kendal, world-renowned for their high-energy `mint cakes` that are a must-have for any tourist. The Lake District, a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2017, is also known for its literary tradition, inspiring such `Lake Poets` as William Wordsworth and Beatrix Potter.
