The Lake District (or Lakeland, as it's commonly known round these parts) is by far the UK's most popular national park. Every year, some 15 million people pitch up to explore the region's fells and countryside, and it's not hard to see why. Ever since the Romantic poets arrived in the 19th century, its postcard panorama of craggy hilltops, mountain tarns and glittering lakes has been stirring the imaginations of visitors. Since 2017 it has also been a Unesco World Heritage Site, in recognition of its uinque hill-farming culture.
It's awash with outdoor opportunities, from lake cruises to mountain walks, but many people visit for the region's literary connections. Among the many writers who found inspiration here were William Wordsworth, Samuel Taylor Coleridge, Arthur Ransome and, of course, Beatrix Potter, a lifelong lover of the Lakes.
I arrived at my Airbnb at 4pm and my hostess Jane was waiting for me..I have a small single room, which is just fine, my own bathroom with TUB!!!!
And full use of the kitchen and there is a DIY breakfast all of this in a vey exclusive area of the Lakes for only 42 dollars Canadian and I am here till Sunday.
After getting sorted I have some dinner and then went into Keswick to see this live play...
It was quite different a little dark and very well acted and I enjoyed the performance......
The view outside at 10.20pm.
Easy drive home and a great first day!!
