Situated up in the north east of England, Lake District is one of the countries favourite places for savouring the great outdoors. With such an affluence of natural riches and a sheer picturesque grandeur, few places in England can measure up to the unreasonably beautiful Lake District. Packed with history and culture, the region holds abandoned slate mines, ruins of the abbey of Furness, multiple treks and trails found among the lakes, and many literary landmarks such as the former homes of William Wordsworth, Dove Cottage and Rydal Mount.
The landscape of the Lakes is actually a breath-taking sight, even giving the Swiss and French Alps a run for their money. Humpbacked mountains coating the horizon, sharp cliffs descending precariously and talus-covered hillsides perfect for treks, the region is scattered with mountainous pools and holds the largest natural lakes found anywhere in England. The landscape is exquisitely preserved, so it is no wonder that the likes of 19th century romantics such as Wordsworth, Coleridge and many others sought their muse next to the Lakes.
