Lake District 'has many peaceful corners'

Those who like to go walking in the Lake District will not find it difficult to discover somewhere out of the way, it has been advised.

Spokesman for Cumbria Tourism Ellis Butcher said finding hidden corners is easy enough because the sheer size of Cumbria makes locating such places easy to do.

He stated: "Because it's in the heart of the second largest county in England it's a massive area geographically so there are many places that are spectacularly remote and off-the-beaten track."

However, first-time visitors may wish to stay in towns near the heart of the national park so they can get around and see the sites easily, Mr Butcher advised, naming places such as Coniston, Bowness-on-Windermere, Ambleside and Keswick as ideal locations.

The Lake District is already the largest national park in England at 2,292 sq km.

And it could be about to get larger as National England has published proposals for the expansion of the national park, along with planned additions to the neighbouring Yorkshire Dales.

The plans are subject to public consultation up until July 1st.
