Lake District is a stunning mountainous region found in northwestern England. It is more than two thousand two hundred square kilometerss in area, is mainly national park, and covers an area stretching sixty-four kilometers from north to south and fifty-two kilometers from east to west and features dozens of great hostels. The area is known for its scenery and the many lakes (or waters as they are more commonly called) that give the area its name.
You can find many things to do in the area from hiking to shopping for local delights in the many villages to swinging through the trees on a zipline. Many authors and poets have also lived in the area over the years, including Beatrix Potter (who helped to stop the area from being developed) and William Wordsworth. Lake District is also home to England's tallest mountain, Scafell Pike, which peaks at just over three thousand two hundred feet. The area is also fairly accessible with a train station in the north at Carlisle and in the south at Windermere, with frequent buses running to and from the other villages so you can reach your hostel without needing a car.
There are many Lake District hostels to choose from in the area depending on your budget and what you want to see and do. Grasmere is a great place to stay if you want to be close to many hiking trails but still having the convenience of a village. There is also a frequent bus through the village and if you a fan of William Wordsworth, the museum dedicated to him is just down the road. Also do not miss the Grasmere Gingerbread shop. Derwentwater is a beautiful place to stay if you want to be situated on one of the many lakes whilst still being close to the village of Keswick, where you can get all your supplies. And Kendall is a great place to stay if you want all the conveniences of a big town or want to base yourself somewhere to explore the north and the south of Lake District from one location.
