Category: Cumbria – The Lake District

It’s true, the Lake District and Cumbria do make you feel healthier!

For the residents and those who visit the Lake District and Cumbria the findings from a recent study carried out uncovered no surprises. The Lake District and Cumbria came out as being one of the regions where those living an visiting felt the most healthy confirming many peoples ideas already that living in a more scenic location makes you feel very well indeed.

Highlighted in the research in particular were locations such as valley bottoms and that of the Langdale Valley. Two very interesting pieces of information were found though. Not all the healthy locations were in the countryside, some were urban places and through these results it was then found that simply green spaces do not deliver the whole package, it appears the aesthetics of these spaces whether countryside or urban were extremely important take the added features of the fells, crags, lakes and even stone walls the Lake District and Cumbria is full of.

Aesthetically, a valley bottom such as the Langdale Valley provides framing of the landscape with the mountains and especially with the Langdale Pikes. Just look at the many thousnads of people who visit and take photos of this iconic mountain range each year.

To further confirm the Lake District and Cumbria’s ‘scenicness’, it only needs a glance at the top 10 most scenic locations in England and Wales where the region has 3 entries, South Lakeland, Copeland (the western Lake District), the Eden Valley rated 3rd, 4th and 7th respectively.

And at the Langdale Hotel & Spa in the ultra scenic Langdale Valley, they are going even further to promote a healthier lifestyle whether living or visiting the Lake District. Their spa is the must go to facility in the South Lakes and they encourage walking and cycling offering their vast knowledge of the area to give routes tips to guests.
