Lake District Tourism: Best of Lake District

About Lake District
Cumbria, England's most northwestern county, is considered one of the most beautiful in the country. Valleys and fells are home to idyllic villages, high rolling moorland and plenty of lakes. While climbing, biking and hiking are popular, literary connections draw visitors to Grasmere and Rydal. Keswick, Ambleside and Windermere offer hotels and restaurants. Driving is the best way to get around sites such as Wordsworth's Dove Cottage and The World of Beatrix Potter.
