Cumbria

Bordering Scotland, Cumbria is in the north-west part of England and is the third largest county. There's something for everyone in Cumbria: coastland, mountains, rural villages, and towns. This is where you'll find the Lake District, England's largest national park with famous towns such as Keswick and Grasmere, and lakes and waters such as Windermere, Ullwater and Coniston.
