Sights in Nature
The Lake District is a huge national reserve in the North West of England with incredible scenery and plenty of options for outdoor activities. We've prepared and personally tested the Lake District itinerary and are ready to reveal all the secrets.
P.S. We have chosen the most budget and spartan accommodation option - camping. There are plenty of campsites in England, and they are in incredibly beautiful locations and well equipped. You'll find plenty of showers and kitchens, and even Wi-Fi internet access to keep you socially connected. You can sleep in tents, tipis, lanpods, glamping sites, motorhomes and yurts - there are plenty of options to suit all tastes.

Day One. On the way to the Lake District

There are quite a few interesting towns on the way to the Lake District. For example, Nottingham (yes, from the legend of Robin Hood) and Leeds, with one of England's most romantic castles, while the more westerly route takes you to Coventry, Birmingham and Manchester.

Day two. In a yurt

Our home for the week was the yurt at Inside Out Camping. It could sleep five people, had a wooden flooring to protect us from the cold at night, a kitchen and a wood-burning stove inside. The campsite where we settled in had clean toilets and showers with hot water. The organisers have thought of every detail. Solar panels give us access to mains electricity, a gas cylinder for cooking, and there's even an excellent BBQ set. Such a civilized variant of rest as campers. And the main thing - our camp is situated on the bank of mountain river. It is unbelievable pleasure to fall asleep and wake up to its sound. One more advantage of such rest - full off-line. There was no cellular communication in the campsite, we could disconnect from the outside world and enjoy nature and good company. Of course, such "conveniences" are not found in every camp, but it is highly recommended to put smartphones away for the time of camping.
