The northern region of the Lake District National Park is an area of outstanding natural beauty with dramatic scenery and a great variety of wildlife. There are many places to stay and to visit, each with their own special appeal, from the fell villages in the north of the region to lake side villages around such lakes as Derwentwater, Ullswater and Bassenthwaite. Villages set in beautiful valleys such as Borrowdale and Patterdale. Then of course there is the pretty Northern Lakes town of Keswick.
With dramatic mountain ranges like Helvellyn, Blencathra and Skiddaw this area is ideal for walkers. Cyclists can enjoy exploring the many valleys, villages and forest tracks and water sports enthusiasts have plenty of lakes to choose from. Local amenities are never far away and Keswick provides the ideal base for family holidays, with many shops, pubs and restaurants right on the doorstep.
