The Lake District (England)

Community Quote

Having just got back from spending Christmas in ‘The Lakes’, and having been there almost annually for the past 15 years, it struck me that now might be as good a time as any to give you my perspective. Let me point out straight away, that I am NOT a born hiker or a camper (mmm, ducky). ... Read review

"...been there almost annually for the past 15 years, it struck me that now might be as good a time as any to give you my perspective. Let me point out straight away, that I am NOT a born hiker or a camper (mmm, ducky). To me, ‘fell walking’ is an explanation of my horizontal position vis-à-vis the pavement on New Year’s Eve, not a healthy outdoor activity. I just felt the need to put pen to paper (figuratively at least) to show those who view ..." Read review

Poetry and Pints Review with images

AdvantagesSomething for everyone and you don't need hiking boots.

DisadvantagesThe British weather.

"I considered the wisdom of doing yet another travel review for surely now I have written sufficient reviews for this month's competition and yet I still felt one was missing, one which I need to write for a special reason. Throughout the years most of my UK holidays have been taken with my friend Ann whether or not we were in already in a relationship those yearly holidays were meant for us alone an affirmation of our long friendship and doing things ..."

Something for everyone

Advantages Beautiful scenery, lots to do

DisadvantagesVery busy in peak season, expensive

"Ah, the Lake District. Just thinking about it brings back memories of perfect summer days, with limitless views (I think this day happened in about 1996 and has never happened since). The Lake District is by far my favourite place in England. I am lucky enough to live within easy driving distance, so I tend to spend quite a lot of weekends there climbing the hills and generally enjoying the scenery. The weather is not often great, but even in midst ..." Read review

Fresh air, rainbows and dead sheep

AdvantagesGreat scenery,quality food and friendly folk

DisadvantagesCan be boring for city slickers who hate walking

"...we chose to go to the Lake District instead. Considering that we've both visited the Lake District twice 10 to 15 years ago, we weren't expecting many surprises. This was going to be a short overnight break for us city-dwellers looking for a breath of fresh air. The journey took about three hours from London Euston and we alighted at Oxenholme station. A £3.50 national rail ticket and a thirty minute ride got us from Oxenholme to Windermere. A ..." Read review

Can we return to The Lakes after Foot and Mouth

AdvantagesLovely views. Not over crowded yet.Bargain breaks available due to foot and mouth

DisadvantagesStill some foot paths closed

"...review of my trip around the Lake District this weekend. I will try and give you an idea about how foot and mouth is still effecting this area. I will point out that with just a small amount of care, it will be a normal holiday meaning foot and mouth should not prevent you enjoying this wonderful area. AIRA FORCE ********** Aira Force is a lovely waterfall, which is approximately 30 metres high in the National Park. Its on the way between Penrith ..." Read review
