Boasting England’s highest mountains and a multitude of freshwater lakes and rivers, breaks to the Lake District offer tranquility and serenity amid simply stunning scenery. Enjoy a leisurely steamboat ride across picturesque Ullswater, or power yourself by renting a kayak for the day on Lake Windermere. Alternatively conquer England’s tallest peak and discover spectacular views atop Scafell Pike. Amid this landscape, made famous by the likes of William Wordsworth and Beatrix Potter, breaks to the Lake District also offer adrenaline and excitement like mountain biking down forest trails as well as Kendal Calling, England’s fastest growing music festival. While in town sample a slice of Kendal mint cake, a sweet treat that helped Sir Edmund Hillary conquer Mount Everest.
