The North West of England offers a wide range of breathtakingly beautiful surroundings and unique landscapes that are perfect for camping adventures. From Cheshire to Cumbria there are no shortages of camping destinations available in the North West and provided you time your trips according to the demands of the sometimes temperamental weather, you are sure to have a great camping adventure.
Cheshire offers many cycling/camping routes for those looking for an active holiday. A good place to start would be the West Cheshire town of Winsford. This is a hub for campers and walkers in the area, and the routes available are numerous, with canal walks and rural treks especially popular. Cumbria is one of the most famous scenic retreats in the world. Many great poets, such as Wordsworth and Coleridge, admitted to be inspired by the beauty of this English jewel situated in the north of England.
The Lake District
Coniston is situated in the south of the Lake District and has everything you would expect of a Lake District retreat. There are an abundance of rolling hills and tors with beautiful natural lakes, waterfalls, and other features sculpted by nature including the old man of Coniston. One recommended route is a trek to Windermere, situated to the east of Coniston. This area boasts the largest natural lake in the whole of the Lake District, Lake Windermere. Water sports are available, but the scenery has an absorbing nature and you wouldn’t go far wrong with just a picnic by the lake, and this is a perfect way to recharge the batteries for the next leg of your journey.
Of all the places in Northern England the Lake District has rightfully earned its place as a true gem in the English countryside. Only by experiencing the place first hand do you realise that the accolades associated with this area are highly warranted.
