Lake District - Western Lake District (Chapter)
This is the Western Lake District chapter from Lonely Planet’s Lake District guidebook.
This is the quintessential Lakeland landscape. Studded with silvery lakes, mist-shrouded fells, country pubs and hill farms, this side of the national park feels much rawer and wilder than its more pastoral neighbour to the east.
