Western Lakes

The Western Lake District stretches out across flat rural farmland to the coast, the backdrop of mountains such as Skiddaw and Scafell Pike to name a few. Inland towns such as Cockermouth and coastal towns/villages such as Whitehaven, Workington and Maryport offer the visitor excellent maritime history and coastal panoramic scenery.
