Lake District National Park: The Lake District, often called simply The Lakes, is a mountainous region of North West England. This place is incredible and an immensely popular destination for travellers and holidaymakers. It is well known for its lakes, forests and mountains (incidentally, the mountains are not called mountains, rather they are referred to as Fells. The Lakes is an apt name for the region but for me the area is so much more. Those of you who regularly follow Nomads on the Road will know I love the mountains of Canada. Now, while I’m on my extended break from Fernie, I still need to get my fix of camping and hiking in the mountains. The Lakes are my go to spot in England. The Lake District was historically split between Cumberland, Lancashire, and Westmorland but now it is entirely in Cumbria. England is not a mountainous region, in fact, all the land in England higher than 3,000 feet (910m) above sea level lies with Lake District National Park.
