About Lake District

The scenic splendour of the Lake District makes it a must-visit for fans of the great outdoors. Ullswater Valley is stunning, sheltering a beautiful lake hidden among towering fells, while the surrounding area is relatively undeveloped compared with other parts of the Lake District. Take the Ullswater Steamer Ferry for a unique perspective of the valley, enjoying its remote and peaceful feel.
