West Cumbria with it's coast, valleys and mountains, away from the crowds of Keswick and the central Lakes, is a special part of the Lake District and it's National Park. There are numerous valleys from Eskdale, to Ennerdale with peaks to climb, fells to wander, rivers and streams to cross, and unspoilt nature to admire, where peace and tranquility can be found.
West Cumbria offers historic houses, Roman remains, antiquary and archaeology to explore and discover, places to visit, to learn, to experience and enjoy.
