"Escape and inspiration" are the best things the Lake District can offer those keen to spend a bank holiday weekend in tents
there, it has been suggested.
Such words were spoken by Ellis Butcher, a spokesman for Cumbria Tourism, who said it is easy to find "spectacularly remote" places to see in the national park away from the crowds.
He recommended the areas around Hawksead, Caldbeck and the Eskdale, Wasdale and Eden valleys as outstanding locations to visit.
The comments come after research by Esure revealed the Lake District was the most popular beauty spot for motorists to visit over the Easter weekend, with 23 per cent doing so.
Wasdale may appeal to visitors as it is not only a quiet valley, but is also at the foot of the two highest mountains in England, has the deepest lake in England and one of its most spectacular geological features, the Wastwater Screes.
This three-mile long curtain of stone plunges into the lake from nearly 2,000 ft above sea level.
