Borrowdale Valley in the Lake District just about has it all; lakes, mountains, vistas, peace, quiet, walks (both low and high level) and so much more. Tranquil yet close enough to civilisation to get the best of both worlds. For those that prefer not to have to drive everywhere, the regular bus service can take you into Keswick with all its shops, cafes and restaurants or you can just as easily head the other way to the lake and village of Buttermere, Crummock Water or Loweswater.
For those that have not visited this glorious area then we have assembled a few images here to help whet the appetite. Enjoy.
