Things to see and do

Great towns

Cumbria is home to some excellent towns. Carlisle is a former fortress town and is located just 10 miles from the Scottish border. Carlisle Cathedral was founded in 1112 and is impressive to walk around – it’s quite amazing for a city the size of Carlisle! Carlisle is home to some excellent theatres too. Cockermouth is a typical market town with a lively and youthful vibe. Nightlife is good here and it tends to be ignored to some extent by tourists – it’s a great place to experience typical Cumbrian life. There is a large ruined Norman Castle to explore and Jennings Brewery offer informative tours of their beer making premises – you even get the chance to sample some of their products. Keswick is the tourist hub of the Lake District and is where many walkers, climbers and runners stay when they are exploring the surrounding hills and mountains. It sits on the banks of one of the biggest lakes. Wimdu have many beautiful cottages and self-catering townhouses available for rent in heart of Keswick, perfect for a romantic getaway or fun family holiday.

Historic Sights

There are plenty of interesting sights of historical importance in Cumbria. The Romans settled in the area and several remains of Roman forts still exist. If you’re staying in Keswick, check out the forts at places such as Birdoswald and Ambleside. There are over 50 stone circles in Cumbria including some that are considered to be among the oldest in Britain. Castlerigg and Swinside are both good examples of this. Cumbria’s mining heritage can be seen at Honister Slate Mine and Threlkeld Museum – mining has been happening in Cumbria since the 12th century and the physical evidence can be seen throughout the county. Hadrian’s Wall, located to the north of Carlisle, is an 80 mile wall built by Roman governor Hadrian designed to keep the Scottish tribes out. Today you can still visit parts of the wall and it is aUNESCXO World Heritage Site. After a day’s walking around historic castles, there is nothing like heading back to a cosy cottage to put your feet up in front of the fire!

The Lake District

The Lake District is a hugely popular tourist destination, especially amongst outdoors enthusiasts. Walking is the order of the day in this part of Cumbria. So get up while the day is still fresh and leave your cottage early to head for the hills. Don’t forget to take your Kendal mint cake with you for a high-energy walkers snack. The towns in Lake District are walker friendly and you will find several bed and breakfast options along the routes to cater for the weary and the hungry walker, perfect if you just need a cup of tea or mid-morning fry up to keep you going.

But depending on where your accommodation is located in Cumbria, you will find plenty is accessible by foot. The closest airport to Cumbria is Blackpool Airport which has connections with London Stansted, Manchester Airport and Leeds Bradford Airport. Manchester and Leeds airports are both a 2 hour drive from Cumbria. To get to the Lake District by public transport take the train to Windermere Station – it’s the closest to the Lakes. Trains from Leeds to Carlisle stop in the Lake District town of Settle.
