If good food is one of the things that makes a holiday special for you, then there are a few better places you could visit in the UK than Cumbria, which this year is proud to be the home of no less than 4 Michelin starred restaurants, three of which are within the Lake District National Park.

Four might not sound like a lot, but to put it in perspective, it is the same number as the whole of Wales, and the Republic of Ireland has just 6 in total. The Lake District is ranked 5th in the UK with only London, Kent and Yorkshire earning more stars (Devon drew also with 4 stars). For a region with such a small population, its an amazing achievement that highlights the dedication and passion of the local people.

The restaurants wining Michelin Stars this year were The Samling at Windermere, The Holbeck Ghyll at Windermere, L’Eclume at Carmel and the stunning Sharrow Bay Hotel at Ulswater, which won the award for the 14th consecutive year.

So why not give your taste buds a holiday and visit the Lake District where you can sample some of the World’s Best Food while taking in some world’s best views.
