What’s the best thing about the Lake District?

The best thing is its calming nature.  Pull on your walking boots get out in the fresh air and you soon feel amazing.

If you had a few hours to spare in the Lake District what would you do?

I love to walk up Latrigg.  It takes about 2 hours - it is very little effort for a fantastic view down over Derwentwater and the Borrowdale Valley.

What’s your favourite Lake District Attraction?

A walk around Derwentwater.  Start by going to Castlerigg

Stone Circle, then over Walla Crag. On the way down visit Surprise View and Ashness Bridge then hit the shore of Derwentwater and follow the path around the lake, maybe stopping off at the Lodore Hotel or Marymount Hotel for refreshments.  

Continue over the duckboards at the end of the lake and follow the path by the side of the lake towards Portinscale, calling in at LIngholm Gardens. If the walk is too much there are jetties where the launch can pick you up, to take you back to Keswick.

What should visitors not miss when staying in the Lake District?

A trip on a 'hop on hop off' open top bus from Keswick to Kendal.  Sitting on the top deck you have fantastic views going through GrasmereAmblesideWindermere and Kendal. It is a great way to see and visit lots of locations.  

What is your favourite place to capture the Lake District at its best.

Friar’s Crag, another stunning view of Derwentwater and the surrounding fells.
