A predominately rural region, Cumbria contains the world famous Lake District
at its heart. A popular holiday destination, it is famous for its lakes, forests, mountains (or fells as they are locally called), and charming lake towns. The popular towns of Keswick, Windermere, Ambleside, and Bowness-on-Windermere
are the largest towns in the national park, but there are also many smaller, quainter villages tucked away in the valleys. Wherever you choose to book your accommodations in the Lake District, you will have access to well-marked footpaths and hiking trails, along with boat, bike, and even ski rentals
. The area is rich in scenery and requires a camera wherever you go. Take caution, however. The Lake District is the dampest part of England and not just because of the 90+ lakes, tarns, and reservoirs in the region. It rains a lot here! Luckily, plenty of accommodations are nearby, as is always, a warm, dry pub.

As England's most northwesterly county, Cumbria is flush against the boarder of Scotland and bordered to the west by the Irish Sea

including some of the earliest stone circles in Britain. All of these attractions are within a short drive from wherever you chose to make your accommodation in Cumbria. Vacation rentals and apartment rentals are abundant in the county’s larger cities and towns, such as Carlisle and Barrow-in-Furness
, but don’t overlook the seaside towns of Whitehaven and Maryport, or the towns of Penrith and Appleby-in-Westmorland in the beautiful Eden Valley. Book your flat here today!
