Cumbria has countless claims to fame. It’s the most north-westerly county in England, home to the largest natural lake in the country and boasts the nation’s highest mountain. But it doesn’t end there. There’s so much more that makes Cumbria so special.
It’s the seemingly endless rolling hills, delightfully quaint villages and picturesque lakeside views that makes this county unmissable. Cumbria is a truly idyllic destination, and there’s simply no better way to experience England’s most beautiful county than a stay in a luxury Cumbria cottage from kate & tom’s.
The impressive Cumbrian landscapes have inspired many famous artists, actors and
authors over the years. Beatrix Potter, William Wordsworth and Stanley Laurel all
spent their best childhood days exploring and discovering around Cumbria. Who
knows, a week in this glorious county could inspire you to produce the next Peter
Cumbria hasn’t just produced some of our favourite famous faces. It’s also the
birthplace of a number of England’s most loved food treats. Throw a Cumberland
sausage or two on the barbie, washed down with a G+T from The Lakes Distillery.
More of a sweet tooth? Don’t worry, there are plenty of goodies for you to taste
during your trip. Kendal Mint Cake, sticky toffee pudding, Grasmere Gingerbread and
English Lakes ice cream are just some of the sweet treats you can feast on.
