From the picturesque little town of Keswick to the magnificent hamlet of Watendlath and prominent beauty spots of Surprise View, the short trail will lead you to the highlights of the Lake District, the home to England's largest lake and highest mountain. In addition to being famous for its spectacular scenery, the Lake District is also associated with a great number of essayists, novelists and poets, notably William Wordsworth who made the district famous by his writings and poetry.
Over the years, Lake District short breaks have been recognized by many as the greatest way to explore the charm and beauty of the area through a variety of activities. While the western Lake District has some of the most diverse landscapes of the National Park, East Lakes offers the magnificent combination of grandeur and beauty, which any of the lakes can afford. Such breaks currently enjoy wide popularity with many travelers from Britain and all over the world, who are offered an opportunity to explore all the variety of quality accommodations from luxury hotels and bed and breakfast inns to self catering holiday cottages. The latter are seen as an ideal place for family breaks and romantic weekends, offering top quality amenities for wonderful rest and recreation.
