Inspiration Wednesday – Lake District
Today’s #InspirationWednesday is the Lake District! The serene and mountainous area north of Manchester has a history of being a retreat for many famous poets and is also a popular tourist destination.
Famous for its lakes, traditional market towns and great routes for hiking and sports, the Lake District is a brilliant retreat. Every direction offers a photo opportunity and the Lake District will charm you into never wanting to leave!
There are loads of places of interest in the Lakes, including Windermere, the largest lake in the National Park at a sizeable 14.8 square kilometres! You can also visit William Wordsworth’s home in Grasmere or Beatrix Potter’s, which is now a National Trust property. And the area boasts enough pubs to keep everyone fed and watered after a long day walking!
If you’re a fan of sports and the outdoors, this is the perfect place to be. Take in the fresh air and explore this postcard-pretty area, but bring your waterproofs – the Lake District sees an average of 200 wet days a year!
