lake district and cumbria travel guide


The Dymond Guide to the Lake District and Cumbria is a guide to all that makes this north west corner of England such a much loved holiday destination. The Lake District is undoubtedly the best known and most popular part of Cumbria but the 304 page book also details the many other areas which add to the beauty and diversity of the county.


Those areas include the World Heritage Site of Hadrian’s Wall and the city of Carlisle in the north, the Cartmel and Furness peninsulas in the south, the west coast with its maritime and industrial heritage, and the Eden Valley and the Pennines in the east.

Packed with information and full of beautiful photographs, the guide book embraces lakes and mountains, city, towns and villages, historic homes and gardens, visitor attractions, outdoor adventures and activities, museums and galleries, festivals and country shows, pubs, cafés and restaurants, specialist shops and places to stay - hotels, B&Bs, campsites, pubs and inns and self-catering properties.


Eleven chapters take you through the different areas of Cumbria, the first four exploring the heart of the Lake District around Windermere, Ambleside and Bowness; Grasmere, Rydal and the Langdales; Hawkshead and Coniston; and Carlisle, Hadrian's Wall and the Solway coast. There's a comprehensive index at the end.
