Our park is located on the edge of the Lake District National Park - the largest National Park in England, and a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

You'll find tremendous scenery in every direction, with secluded beaches, dramatic mountains, and no fewer than sixteen beautiful lakes just waiting to be explored. Scafell, England's highest mountain; Wastwater, its deepest lake; Windermere, its longest lake, and Whinlatter, the only true mountain forest in England, are all close at hand. Whatever your age or ability, there are so many ways to explore this wonderful part of the world: by car, train, bike, boat, on horseback, or on foot. Take your pick.

Scafell Pike

Scafell Pike

Not only is the Scafell Pike walk modestly challenging, it has invariably been described as exhilarating, beautiful and breathtaking. When you visit, it won’t take long for you to discover the beauty and romanticism of the great mountain.

West Water


Situated in the Wasdale Valley, Wastwater is 3 miles long, half a mile wide and 260 feet deep, and the deepest of all the lakes.

Wastwater is perhaps the most awe-inspiring of all the lakes. Surrounded by mountains, Red Pike, Kirk Fell, Great Gable and Scafell Pike - England’s highest mountain.
