Cumbria lies in North West England and is famous for the Lake District and its areas of outstanding natural beauty. Although famed for the mountains and lakes Cumbria has some excellent beaches and coastline.
One way to explore is the Cumbria Coastal Way (CCW), a long-distance footpath traveling from Cumbria's southern border to just north of the English-Scottish border. It follows some interesting scenery such as the red sandstone cliffs of St. Bees Head.
This is the place that inspires poets and painters, housewives and husbands. It's mountainous, covered in lakes and often rainy but travellers flock there in their thousands to immerse themselves in the beauty of the area and explore the valleys and villages. The Lake District encompasses the Eden Valley, North Pennines, part of the Yorkshire Dales and the Furness Peninsula.
This is the largest national park in the United Kingdom and it's just waiting for you to visit. The deepest lake is Wastwater and the longest, Windermere! Stone circles are prolific and Hadrian's Wall shows just how bad relations used to be between the Scots and the British!
