Apartments in the Lake District
Imagine a landscape with over 1,000 large and small lakes. Welcome to the Lake District in the northwest of England. This extremely popular holiday region is not only one of the most important tourist regions, but also a real scenic wonder. Here English horror novels and poetry volumes become reality - literally, because the region belongs to one of the most frequently described landscapes in English literature. And of course you will also find great accommodations here, from apartments to apartments to cottages - all in style made of clunky stone rocks.
Vacation in the Lake District
Location and orientation
Not only is "The Lakes", as the locals like to call the lake district, an ideal holiday destination, it is also England's first national park to be listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The Lake District is located around 130 kilometres from Manchester and is largely in the Cumbrian Mountains - one of the reasons why so many lakes have formed here.
The Lake District has always attracted British writers - no wonder many of them lived and wanted to be buried here.
Top 3 travel tips
There are around 1,000 lakes in the Lake District, but the Windermere is the largest - not only here, but throughout England. It is a popular destination for excursions, especially in summer, as there are many opportunities for water sports. How about a fast water ski tour, for example? Or do you prefer to have it cosy and prefer to catch your own catch for the barbecue in the holiday home? Swimming or motorboating on the Windermere Lake is also possible without any problems.2nd summit towers on the Scafell Pike
The Lake District is not only home to England's largest lake, but also England's highest mountain, the Scafell Pike. A total of five different routes wind their way up the mountain. The route via Wast Water is suitable for beginners and untrained people. The longest and most strenuous tour starts at Eskdale and winds on steep paths to the summit.3. The Innominate Tarn lake
A real insider tip is the Innominate Camouflage. This small mountain lake lies particularly beautifully southeast of the summit of the Haystack and enchants by the numerous peat islands in the lake, which remind optically of bread loaves.
