Camping & Glamping in Cumbria with Cosy Outdoors
A glamping holiday in Cumbria is bound to be one full of natural beauty and outdoor adventures. Whether you’re after dramatic hikes and adventure sports or some simple relaxation as you take in the rolling, pastoral landscape that surrounds you, a cosy camping getaway in Cumbria is just what the doctor ordered.
Explore the wild beauty and history of Cumbria
There’s no way you can go glamping in Cumbria and avoid the Lake District - and you’d definitely not want to do that! With expansive grasslands, rugged fells and moorlands, spectacular mountains and forests, not to mention all its glittering lakes, it’s easy to see why this area has been such a famous holiday destination for a long time.
The national park is the largest in England and a World Heritage Site, offering ample opportunities for outdoor activities and day trips across its charming villages and stately homes.
Archaeology, wildlife, bike tracks and heritage sites can all be found in the Solway Wetlands. The area offers a wide variety of walks along nature trails and across specially built boardwalks which allow exploration into the area’s bogs and peatlands. Birdwatcher will love visiting the RSPB Campfield Marsh Reserve or the Solway Wetlands Centre, while history buffs will enjoy touring Holme Cultram Abbey or volunteering on the area’s archaeology digs.
Finally, Hadrian’s Wall and the Birdoswald Roman Fort offer a fascinating look at Cumbria’s Roman heritage. The latter has a great visitor centre that plays host to an interesting exhibition complete with Roman artefacts. This is the ideal place to start your Hadrian’s Wall adventure.
Discover the City of Carlisle
The wonderful small city of Carlisle is packed with places of historical interest to feed your imagination. The town’s Historic Quarter has dungeons, labyrinths, museums and ruins just waiting for you to explore them, while Carlisle Castle provides a fascinating look into the last 900 years of life in the region. Additionally, the medieval Carlisle Cathedral offers fascinating guided tours to help you understand its significant history and architecture.
If history isn’t your thing, the city has plenty of other distractions to keep you busy and entertained. From independent boutiques to curiosity shops, window shopping is easy in Carlisle. The local pubs and taverns selling locally brewed ales and spirits are perfect for whiling away the afternoon while rubbing elbows with the friendly locals.
But perhaps the best thing about spending a day in a bustling town like Carlisle is making your way back to your cosy and quiet campsite, far away from the noise of traffic and crowds.
