Cumbria is an excellent rural county which is perfect for stag weekends and hen retreats. The county's largest town of Carlisle is where most of the busier pubs and venues can be found. For those looking for more scenic attractions, Barrow in Furness or South Lakeland may be your cup of tea.
The beautiful countryside is perfect for glamping or relaxing in the natural surroundings. For a more luxurious taste of outdoor living, why not book a lodge at Centreparcs Whinfell at nearby Penrith? An ideal venue for both birthday parties and pre-wedding celebrations.
This county also includes the Lake District, one of the UK's most outstanding areas of natural beauty. Hen parties may enjoy a relaxing boat trip across Windermere whilst adventurous stag parties might prefer an energetic hike up Scafell Pike or a less strenuous stroll along Morecambe Bay. The coastal town of Morecambe provides some lovely pubs and restaurants, seafood being a specialty. Foodies must also make a short trip to nearby Kendall. Renowned for its famous mint cake, it is also a favorite with climbing and hiking fanatics.
This area has some of the most beautiful guest houses for your stay and for something a little bit different, why not hire a country farm or barn?
If busy clubs and loud music are not your thing, a great place to visit is the Cumberland pencil museum in Keswick. This attraction draws in a staggering 80,000 visitors each year.
This is a scenic and rural county, perfect for all occasions.
