As you drive around the Lake District you can miss the lakes. They are amazing.
Here's a picture of me on a rock.

You must go horse riding. I have never done it before and this is a great place to do it. My Horse was called Billy ( Very funny as my old boss was called Billy lol).
The staff at the stables are excellent and I felt very safe while I was on the horse. They explain how to handle your horse and if any problems, they are there straight away.
They put you into 2 groups - beginners and more advanced - ie you nust be able to trot with the horse comfortable. The staff do test you.

We decided that we should see a bit of the Lake District and not stay in the camp all the time - we did drive all the way from London so we thought it be good to get out and see the place.
One place we found was Grizedale Forest. It got loads of lovely walks in the forest. While you are walking there loads of wodern features to spot.
We didn't have much time and the weather wasn't that good so we went on the short tour. Found some lovely woodern musical instruments.
