Western Lake District
Due to its position within Cumbria, the Western
Lake District offers visitors a stunning combination of scenery,
from lakes and mountains to seaside marinas and beaches. The region
contains several of the county's most beautiful lakes - from the
serene Buttermere to the dramatic
scenery around Wastwater.
Walking in the area is at its best, whether it’s
around the Northern Fells or through
the lanes and streets of market towns such as Cockermouth,
(the birth place of William Wordsworth), to marinas and historical
ports such as Whitehaven.
