Calling all hikers and mountain bikers. There's Lakeland packed with fells, forces, pikes and tarns to explore in scenic Cumbria. Pack your Wainwright guide to find your way between chocolate box villages straight out of Beatrix Potter books and remote market towns in the Lake District. Countless turreted pele towers, mystic stone circles and stony Norman castle ruins punctuate the hillsides. Head north and you'll meet the Romans at Hadrian's Wall or west for Victorian fishing ports and lonely lighthouses on the Irish Sea coast. This northwest county is filled with flavour. Save space for treats like Cumbrian Fell cheeses and Cumberland sausage.
