Western Lake District & Coast

Welcome to the Western Lake District & Coast

Nestled snugly between some of England’s best-loved landscapes and the beauty of more than 100 miles of coastline hugging the Irish Sea, the Western Lake District & Coast offers visitors and residents the perfect blend of rugged landscapes, just a short distance from plenty of fresh sea air.

Further off the beaten track than some perhaps better-known places in Cumbria’s Lake District National Park, taking the time to discover this hidden gem is well-worth that little bit of extra effort.

Everything you would associate with The Lake District is here, from stunning countryside offering relaxation and adventure, to bustling towns and villages, where the order of the day is tradition, industry, heritage and innovation.

Discover this peaceful part of the Lake District UNESCO World Heritage Site today, by starting here…
