Ospreys!

Fascinating view of the parents and young on the next. Friendly and knowledgeable volunteers on duty and a nice tearoom at the end. Thanks, Forestry Commission!

Just love it whether you are energetic or just want to take it slow. The Lakes have amazing scenery and lots to do.

My wife and I were celebrating 61 years of marriage, it was also her birthday. As we drove round the Lakes, we liked the scenery which gave us a feeling of elation and contentment.

We had sun, rain, snow,and hail but it didn't dampen the spirits of the walkers (not us of course) Most daffodils we have ever seen. The GALLERY craft and art center is really worth a visit - some beautiful items there.

Didn't enjoy the rain that never seemed to stop or not being able to change hotels due to payment required in full... More

This was a trip down memory lane for Isy my girlfriend who was born and bred in the area. Visited Scotby, Wetherall and the beautiful River Eden. Good couple of beers in the Wheatsheaf pub in Wetherall. Stunning countryside and not mobbed by tourists like us.

A walk around the lake at Buttermere is a must on any visit to the Lake District. Easy walking so suitable for everyone.
