‘Looking for adventure?’
Cumbria has an abundance of fantastic outdoor offerings for people of all abilities and interests to experience. That was the message from Cumbria Tourism, the county’s Destination Management Organisation, who have dubbed the area ‘the perfect place to be’ for anyone looking to enjoy the great outdoors. From a plethora of exciting water sports, exhilarating high wire walks like the Infinity Bridge at Honister, mountain climbs with stunning views, treks with llamas or just a lakeside walk at any of the Lake Districts 16 lakes followed by a pub lunch, the county has it all.
“Cumbria really is the perfect place to be for anyone looking to enjoy the outdoors, be they an experienced adventurer or recently inspired to make the most of our fantastic landscape,” said Cumbria Tourism’s managing director, Gill Haigh. As well as being home to England’s highest mountains with Scafell Pike at number one, closely followed by Helvellyn at number three, the area also boasts stunning seaside locations including St Bees near Egremont- perfect for family fun and some relaxation.
“Alongside the world-famous mountains of the Lake District and the amazing range of water activities available in and on our lakes the county also boasts hidden gems including the stunning Cumbrian coast and tranquil Eden Valley,” said Ms Haigh. Cumbria presents an array of different types of accommodation too, so if you are looking for something a bit different and more outdoors the county is perfect to try something new. The area is well known for its camping, cosy holiday cottages and boutique luxury hotel opportunities, including Low Wood Bay at Windermere, the Daffodil Hotel in Grasmere and Another Place at Ullswater.
But visitors can also choose to stay in a yurt in Cartmel or a camping pod at Kentmere, or even a red alert fire truck in Keswick to name just a few. And while you’re here experience Windermere by boat, Coniston by paddle board, Whinlatter from the trees with Go Ape or even book in for some outdoor fun with the numerous outdoor activity centres, such as the Kepplewray Centre at Broughton or Hawse End at Portinscale.
“Whatever your ability and confidence level there is something for you, and for those looking to safely extend their comfort zone there’s a host of expert instructors and guides just waiting to take you on your next adventure,” added Ms Haigh.
“Hiking, paddle boarding, cycling, swimming and more – it’s all right here on our doorstep!”
