Spectacular scenery and a feast of local produce to try provides a wonderful way to enjoy a summer holiday, romantic break or family gathering.

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, campsites and bunkhouses are set in beautiful Lake District countryside.
