‘I wandered lonely as a cloud, That floats on high o’er vales and hills, When all at once I saw a crowd, A host of daffodils, Beside the lake beneath the trees, Fluttering and dancing in the breeze’. The words of William Wordsworth perhaps describing a moment he enjoyed whilst walking in the hills of the Lake District which for some years famously became the home and source of inspiration for this great British poet.
The Lake District National Park has been inspiring poets, artists and writers for decades -even centuries - and today it makes the perfect place for that much needed chance to get away from it all. Indeed, from the green of the fields, the heather of the mountains, the yellow of the daffodils in Spring or the golden delights of the tree lined lanes in Autumn, the exceptional beauty of Cumbria is calling once more. If you’re planning a visit then perhaps you have been searching for guest houses, bed and breakfasts or hotels. Bowness, Abbeytown family run Brooklands Guest House is a traditional guest house that invites you to come and taste for yourself the joys of the Lake District National Park.
The county of Cumbria is also home to Britain’s highest mountain, Scafell Pike. Every year, trekkers and hikers from up and down the country, take up the challenge of scaling England’s highest peak, sometimes as part of the well-known ‘Three-Peak Challenge’ which involves summiting the three highest mountains in the UK (Scafell Pike, Ben Nevis and Snowdon) in just a 24-hour period! The breath-taking views for miles around surely make it a worthwhile endeavour.
