Explore the western Lake District

Donate to the Western area

From the high fells to the shining sea, the Western Lake District is a land of contrasts. It has scenic beauty in abundance from wild and rugged mountains through to intimate farmed landscapes and 26 miles of Cumbrian coast.

The character of the majority of this area of the National Park is remote with small, scattered communities in contrast to the busier valleys to the east. The population of the area is relatively small, just over 4,000 people, and the four main valleys that make up the Western Lakes are Ennerdale, Wasdale, Eskdale and the Duddon; each distinct in character, each a hidden gem.

The Western Lake District includes some of the most wild and dramatic scenery in the UK including 79m deep Wastwater, England’s deepest lake, and 977m high Scafell Pike, England’s highest mountain.
