Wasdale Head from Wastwater: You will fall short of adjectives while describing Wordsworth’s most loved place. This landscape has won the hearts of painters, poets and climbers over the centuries. Wastwater is one of the most touted tourist attractions with England’s highest mountain, Scafell Pike, lurking in the background. It has been voted Britain’s favourite view in 2007. What more to say? It’s time to visit this stunning place.
Ullswater from the ferry: This perfect stretch of water offers an ever-changing panorama, and the stunning view will floor you with its scenic charm. If you will take the Ullswater ferry around the lake, you can uncover a treasure trove of gorgeous views. Some of the favourites are towards Kirkstone Pass and down to Pooley Bridge.
Bassenthwaite Lake from Dodd Wood: Catch a glimpse of the country’s rarest birds, the Osprey, which have been nesting on the shores of Bassenthwaite for many years. Steeped in beauty, enjoy views of the Osprey catching fish, swirling overhead or nesting above the large stretch of water. This is the perfect spot for nature lovers.
Haystacks from the shores of Buttermere: Pack your bags and head out to the favourite place of the Lake District’s greatest champion, Alfred Wainwright to reboot from the rigours of city life. He even requested his ashes to be scattered all around this paradise. To the right of the lake is Sour Milk Ghyll and you will be amazed to see the red squirrel thriving in this stunning area.
Grasmere from Loughrigg Fell: Bracken strewn slopes, rocky outcrops, hidden grassy enclaves, remote tarns, modest height enveloping a lovely fell makes a perfect place for ramblers- especially those looking for picture perfect background. This place is a real treat for the eyes with panoramic views and one of the more accessible mountains in the Lake District.
