I do believe that this national park speaks for itself completely. Anyone griping would have to be assumed to be having a bad day,piles problems or a bleak outlook on life ..... Have covered most if not all of the area over the years in varying capacities and believe the only thing other than weather that can spoil your enjoyment... More

Went camping I'm Keswick with a group of friends. Good walks, great pubs in the area, stunning views and surrounding. Was pretty wet the weekend we went in July but was still beautiful.

Lake district is one of the best places to visit in England. Make sure you visit their for your holiday. And remember the ideal time to visit there is Summer. We went during first week of December where winter already kicked in and the condition was damp and wet for trekking. Make sure you are carrying lots of winter clothes... More

White moss is beautiful but find a way of getting there without parking your car. We stopped to give our dogs a quick walk. Park with Ease certainly does not live up to its name. We parked, keyed in our reg, returned with, according to the machine over 3 minutes of free time remaining and duly put dogs in car... More

The food was fine and delivered in good time. The problem began after the Singer/Guitarist finished his set and went for his break.... More

The variety of activities will more than make up for the small size of the lakes (for those from the Americas) and the touristy, and a tad overpriced, town. Around the region you can kayak, hike, or boat. The all day self drive all wheel drive "safari" was something I have never seen anywhere else. Most places come with a... More

Once again The Old Crown Pub exceeded our expectations, our second visit in a short time and we just loved it. The real ales brewed by the pubs own brewery were plentiful in choice (6) and fantastic in quality, would recommend the Harter Gold and Brim Fell in particular. We ate in the snug where the staff were friendly and... More
