A brief reminder why we love Lake District

Posted on 8th April 2018 by CE Team

Why we love Lake Distric so much? Britain’s Lake District is legendary for its scenic beauty and quaint atmosphere. The Lakes and their environs are havens of tranquil peace. It described as a ‘watery wilderness’. It’s the type of wilderness you can enjoy getting lost in. There’s something special about this beautiful place, which attracts many visitors. For a summer break, it’s the best place in the world, with plenty to do.

Things to do in Lake District

There are so many things to do in Lake District. In fact, there are both indoor and outdoor activities in Lake District. There’s something for everyone to enjoy here. There are day trips to take and places of interest to visit. There are scenic, lakeside walks. Literature fans will enjoy a visit to Wordsworth’s house. Beatrix Potter also lived in the area and you can visit her house too. And speaking of outdoor activities in Lake District, what about water sports? if you enjoy water-based activities, you’ll be spoilt for choice. There’s no better place than Lake Windermere for cruising. It’s the largest lake in Great Britain and has 18 islands to see. There’s are water sports centres on various lakes in the Lake District.

And when the weather heats up, many visitors throw caution to the wind and indulge in some wild swimming. There are plenty of places available for that. When the temperatures rise, there’s nothing more calming than a cooling dip. The Lake District is wild swimming heaven, with its lakes, rivers and waterfalls. But to enhance your enjoyment, you must take precautions. Don’t swim after a meal and be sure to stay off the booze. And if possible, make sure there’s one member of the group (if you’re in one) to take care of your clothes when you’re swimming. Or who knows what might happen? Better safe than sorry. wildswimming.co.uk is a good website to check out the best wild swimming locations.
