Overview

The Lake District

The Lake District (or Lakeland, as it’s commonly known round these parts) is by far the UK’s most popular national park. Every year, some 15 million people pitch up to explore the region’s fells and countryside and it’s not hard to see why. Ever since the Romantic poets arrived in the 19th century, its postcard panorama of craggy hilltops, mountain tarns and glittering lakes has been stirring the imaginations of visitors.

Food Must Try

Grasmere Hotel

Local and seasonal produce is sensitively handled and prepared at the Grasmere Hotel Restaurant to bring out the arresting natural flavours of Cumbrian cuisine. Begin with the home-smoked duck breast with pomegranate seeds and a honey and thyme dressing, before following with the fresh flavour of a sea-bass fillet, or perhaps opt for crisp filo pastry wrapped around stilton, pear and walnuts followed by a supreme of guinea fowl. Served in the chic cream interior of the restaurant, overlooking a classically verdant Cumbrian scene, the Grasmere Hotel restaurant is the ideal place to relax alongside a glass of something crisp from their extensive and carefully considered wine list.

Porto

Porto provides delicious cuisine prepared using the only finest locally sourced ingredients. With a self-professed cooking style of ‘modern British with far reaching influences’, this food manages to combine nostalgia with the exotic. Choose from traditional, rich smoked haddock accented with the luxurious flavour of king scallops or pan-roasted chicken with influence from Italy pervading in the accompanying arancini. For dessert, opt for 3 scoops of local handmade ice-cream or sorbet with a glass of Clos L’Abeilley dessert wine, or perhaps something more decadent, for which the twice baked sticky toffee soufflé fits the bill.

L’Enclume

L’Enclume’s romantic riverside location at Cartmel is food for the soul and provides soulful food to boot. Preferring to veer away from a set menu, although they provide one if preferred, L’Enclume champions a style of cooking that debuts a selection of new dishes individually prepared to suit each table, created using the rapidly changing palette of local and seasonal ingredients on offer in the abundant environment of the Lake District. With a penchant for English wines, the tipples are similarly styled and carefully chosen to complement the rich, natural flavours of the changing dishes. Enjoy the colourful food and exciting flavours in the intimate surroundings of the rustic dining room, with exposed beams married together with contemporary furniture and artwork.

Excursions

Derwentwater

Less than five kilometers long, Derwentwater is an idyllic lake in the northern part of the national park, and a 10-minute walk from the center of Keswick. On its west is the ridge of Catbells, and extending into the lake on the east is Friar’s Crag, a favorite viewpoint. Beautiful Borrowdale Valley opens at its southern end.
Keswick Launch Co. makes a one-hour circuit of the lake on small boats that stop at seven points, where you can hop off to explore, or follow lakeside trails and catch the next boat at another stop. Around the entire perimeter of the lake is a 12-kilometer walk. In Keswick, it’s hard to resist a stop at the quirky Pencil Museum, where you’ll learn how they are manufactured and how the discovery of graphite began a whole local industry.

Castlerigg Stone Circle

Of the more than 300 stone circles in England, Castlerigg is not only among the oldest, it is one of the most atmospheric. It is dramatically sited, with 38 stones aligned with the tallest of the surrounding fells, and the scene uncluttered by admissions offices or souvenir stands. Yours may be the only car there. Unlike most of England’s stone circles, which are Bronze Age burial sites dating from 2000 to 800 BC, this one was constructed about 3000 BC in the Neolithic period. More than 30 meters in diameter, the circle originally had 42 stones, some more than two meters high. For the full dramatic effect, go at sunset.
