I first went to the Lake District about 12 years ago and I've been at least once every year since. When the weather is great it really is the most beautiful place (and it's very atmospheric in the not so good weather); but the lake district also has some other kind of charm I haven't found in many other places....

If you are visiting England for the first time and have the opportunity to make it up to the Lake District, I definitely suggest it. If you are into hiking then great, if not, the small towns have lots to offer and you will still experience the amazing outdoors.

While a lot of people do walking tours of Lake District National Park, we took drives through green meadows, green-brown velvety mountains, forests, villages, and towns, and by the numerous lakes. It was wet and chilly, but beautiful and serene.

This is somewhere I would never choose to return to after having been through a rather unpleasant parking appeal process. Although the concept is good, automatic number plate recognition is not always successful and you may not realise how it works until you've entered the car park. It certainly favours the tech-savvy, although it's own technology lets it down as... More

Dog friendly, warm welcome and a fine selection of real ales. Food was good and good value and the staff went out of their way to get us a table even though we hadn't booked. Top tip..book if you want to guarantee a table in the evening. Good atmosphere and we will be back.

I visited White Moss in June 2014. The parking machine was not working and would not accept coins. Several people were trying to pay but the machine did not work. This is a 'Park with Ease' machine, a company which the National Park is now using. I received a letter demanding a parking charge, despite attempting to pay at the... More

In May this year, we stopped briefly at White Moss where there was car number plate recognition which was completely new to us. We read that we had 20 minutes free parking, which by our reckoning left us with a few minutes to spare. However, after having returned to Berkshire where we live, we received a demand for £25 for...

We recently visited the Lake District and weren't sure how we would get around - we did not want to rent a car and we wanted to see as much as possible in one day.We communicated with Andy ( Show Me Cumbria) by email prior to the start of our trip. We told him what our interests were and where... More
