The Lake District National Park has some of the most awe-inspiring scenery in the UK. People come here to walk, cycle, climb and sail through the countryside that William Wordsworth loved so much. The Lakes are home to England’s highest mountain, Scafell Pike, a must do for any British climbing enthusiast. Ullswater and Windermere are famous for their stunning landscapes and offer holiday opportunities for those looking for an active break and also those wanting a relaxing holiday, strolling around pretty villages and paddling in the lakes.
