A Tolkienesque sweep of breathtaking mountains, mirror-smooth lakes and peaceful villages, Cumbria’s Lake District cultivates an air of serenity. Its popularity is well deserved: this striking landscape fosters rare wildlife such as the native red squirrel and has inspired literature greats as diverse as Beatrix Potter and Wordsworth. Tackle the peaks and glacial coves of the Helvellyn range, or sail across the snaking waters of Ullswater; when you’re all outdoors-ed out, revamped cottages, Michelin-starred restaurants and luxurious health spas await.
