Towns and villages in the Lake District National Park

There are over 300 towns and villages in the Lake District National park, though many of these consist of no more than perhaps a couple of cottages and a farm. The larger and more bustling towns, and the picturesque villages, nestle against a scenic backdrop of countryside and coast.

Small villages and settlements pepper the quiet lanes and byways of the Lake District. All with their own story to tell, explore these ancient settlements on foot or by car.

Top quality attractions, welcoming accommodation and colourful festivals make these towns and villages an intriguing destination all year round.
