Description: Conveniently located just fifteen minutes from the M6 motorway and halfway between Penrith and Keswick and five minutes from Ullswater, the Whitbarrow Village resort sits beneath Blencathra Fell and offers both luxury and serenity to all who visit -- as well as easy access to the delights of the Lake District.
The legendary unspoilt grandeur of the Lake District has proved an inspiration to generations of poets, artists and writers alike, and the area's most famous son, William Wordsworth, declared it 'the loveliest spot that man hath ever found.' Such world-famous artists as Turner, Gainsborough, Constable, Sir Walter Scott, Charlotte Bronte and John Keats included the Lakes in their travels, and John Ruskin made his home near Coniston Water.
It was Wordsworth's dream to preserve the area's wild, natural beauty forever, and today the Lake District is England's largest National park, almost 900 square miles, encompassing 1,800 miles of footpaths through some of Europe's most glorious scenery.
Within a short drive of the resort is Aira Force, a favorite beauty spot - and 8 miles further afield is the ancient town of Penrith, with its narrow streets, lovely gardens and ruined 14th Century castle.
