The most north-westerly county in England, Cumbria boasts some of the country's most breathtaking natural scenery. Perhaps most famous for the Lake District National Park, millions of visitors flock to the area every year to admire and explore its mountains, valleys, moorlands and lakes. It is no surprise that this largely rural county has captured the imagination of countless renowned artists, writers and poets including the likes of Beatrix Potter and William Wordsworth.
The west coast of Cumbria stretches 150 miles from Scottish border (and Hadrian's Wall) down around the huge Lake District and the Furness Peninsula. The coastline boasts bustling harbours, sprawling beaches and towering cliffs. There are many fantastic holiday cottages with sea views and beach locations on the Cumbrian coast offering high standards of accommodation for holidaymakers all year round.
