Cumbria is renowned as one of the most beautiful counties in England. Home to the Lake District National Park, most of England's highest mountains and large swathes of the Yorkshire Dales National Park, it's a haven for hikers and all who love the great outdoors. Restaurants in Cumbria match that beauty with traditional dishes, innovative menus and food from around the world. There's some great local produce, with fantastic Cumberland sausage, salt marsh lamb from the Cartmel peninsula and Grasmere gingerbread on offer too. The unique local damsons are also used to make a wonderful gin.
