THE LAKE DISTRICT
Relax or challenge the body, invigorate the mind. Unwind. It’s easy to see why the likes of Wordsworth and Beatrix Potter were so inspired by the vast landscape of the Lake District.
You can sail along the water, walk for hours, speed down hills on a bicycle. Sip tea by a lake. Ride a steam train. Visit a Lakeland Motor Museum or be pampered in a spa. Young or old, the Lakes will entertain and amaze you.
Visit the Lake District National Park website for great events and ideas too.
At lakedistrict.gov.uk you can discover
- England’s largest National Park is now a World Heritage Site
- Home to Scafell Pike – its highest mountain,
- Wastwater – its deepest lake
From East Catholes, Kendal is only 12 miles away, and you can drive in on the less travelled A684, avoiding the long queues that develop coming off Junction 36 onto the A590 route to the Lakes.
See all the beauty and then you can leave the crowds and bustle behind, when you return to the tranquillity of East Catholes.
Due to the Coronavirus outbreak, although most shops and businesses are now open, they may have reduced opening hours or restrictions on access.
If you are planning a special visit to a particular place, it would be best to check directly with the establishment concerned before making your journey.
