Holiday Caravans in Cumbria

Cumbria the county famous for the Lake District is located just to the south of the Scottish Borders, with Yorkshire towards the South and Durham and Northumberland towards the East. The Lake Land Poets and Wordsworth have immortalised the magnificent views of the Lake District. Each of the lakes that surround the rugged heights is unique and magnificent.

Towards the North is Carlisle, which was once described as one of the finest cities in Roman England, it has been riven by border skirmishes and battles for many centuries due to its close proximity with the Scottish border. To secure the area, Hadrian, the Roman emperor gave orders to build a great wall which was 6 meters high and three meters thick. The wall was built all through England's North Country in order to keep the Celts away. The remains of Hadrian's Wall can still be seen in Carlisle along with forts like Housesteads and Birdoswald which was built in A.D. 122. It is now popular to walk alongside lengths of Hadrian's Wall and some brave souls even walk its full length.     Read more

You can also visit the arts and crafts house located in Bowness-on-Windermere. It is a beautifully restored historic house which was designed by the famous architect M H Baillie Scott. The views from the house are truly spectacular. The house overlooks the Coniston fells and Lake Windermere. Much of the original features were retained during the restoration including the stained glass, stone carving, metalwork, oak panelling, etc. Both contemporary and historical paintings are exhibited over here.

The Wordsworth house is located in Cockermouth. This is the house where the famous poet William Wordsworth lived in the 1770s. The National trust has recreated the look and feel of the house so that when visitors arrive they would get a better sense of how the poet spent his time in the house. Visitors could find some of Wordsworth's servants busy with the daily chores, like cleaning, cooking and washing. The house has been taken back to a time when William Wordsworth used to live here on the basis of years of research. The transformation can be seen even in the smallest article of the house such as the knife and fork. In certain rooms, visitors can touch or even use the reproduced furnishing. Right after you step in from the front door, you will enter into the amazing world of an 18th-century home.
