Cumbria is a truly stunning county, set in the far north-west of England.
Covering an area of 6,768 km², it’s England’s third-largest county, and is formed of the original counties of Cumberland and Westmorland, as well as parts of North Lancashire and North Yorkshire.
In 2021, it was one of the most popular destinations for Brits’ summer holidays – and as owners of one of the top holiday parks in Cumbria at North Lakes, we certainly noticed how much busier the area became over the summer compared to previous years!
But why exactly is Cumbria so popular, and why should you make it your holiday home from home? Read on to find out!
4 reasons to make Cumbria your holiday home from home
1. The Lake District lives right at its heart
Though it probably needs no introduction, the Lake District is one of the many features that sets Cumbria apart from other holiday destinations.
With its world-famous lakes, breath-taking scenes of nature and stunning mountains that climb to the dizziest heights, the Lake District is nothing short of incredible. And that’s before you’ve even considered all the activities available there to enjoy – whether you’re visiting alone, or with friends and family.
In fact, there’s so much to do in the Lake District alone that you’ll need a permanent base from which to enjoy it to its full capacity! That’s where holiday parks in Cumbria like North Lakes come in handy. Find out why you should invest in one of our static caravans for sale in the Lake District in this blog.
2. It’s also made up of many other popular places
As well as the Lake District, Cumbria encompasses the Eden Valley, the North Pennines, the Furness Peninsula, and even a little part of the Yorkshire Dales – all of which have their own unique and wonderful features.
So, by making Cumbria your holiday home from home, you can be sure that you’ll have a lifetime’s worth of memorable holiday adventures to enjoy – and more, should you want to pass your chosen holiday home down through the family generations!
3. You’ll achieve the ultimate holiday variety
From city trips to coastal escapes, adventurous voyages to relaxation breaks, there are so many different kinds of holiday that you can experience – and Cumbria has them all!
As well as the lakes and mountains that make Cumbria so famous (and give The Lake District it’s honorary title of “The Adventure Capital of the UK”), it’s also surrounded by a truly stunning coastline and accompanying seaside resorts. One of the most loved of these is Silloth, where North Lakes is situated!
Conversely, if you prefer the buzz of a city break, filled with historical museums and other exciting days out, you’ll have access to the fantastic city of Carlisle.
