The Lake District National Park is an astonishing spectacle of lakes, mountains and forests. The northern and southern lakes are all within a 30-60 min drive from the Head at Middleton, via either Kendal (e.g., Windermere, Coniston) or Penrith (e.g., Ullswater, Bassenthwaite Lake). If you want to leave the car behind there are also endless opportunities for walking off the beaten track.
