What is Wordsworth Country?
The Lake District in Cumbria is a National Park of mountains, lakes and valleys covering around 900 sq. miles.
Described by many as the most beautiful area in England, whose scenery has inspired writers and poets over the centuries.
It is of special interest to walkers, climbers and those wishing to engage in a wide selection of outdoor pursuits. Good quality accommodation comprising of hotels, guest houses, self-catering, farm house, caravan sites, camping sites and hostels are on offer throughout the area.
Early bookings are essential.
There are 16 lakes in the area, with Windermere as the largest, and Wastwater, the deepest.
The mountains of the region, whilst not large by alpine standards, are grand and dramatic. Sun, cloud and seasons create ever changing hues and patterns in the landscape.
Only 4 mountains reach 900-1000m, but these and those of lesser heights offer challenges to experienced climbers and yet provide rewarding comfortable walks and hikes.
A visit to this distinctive area is a worthwhile adventure for the young and old.
Do not expect a Mediterranean climate. Summer days are normally warm and pleasant and snow falls in the Winter months on higher ground give skiing opportunities, especially on the slopes of Helvellyn.
Examine the map and select a location for accomodation.
A warm welcome awaits you – Wordsworth Country style.
