Loweswater, near Cockermouth, Lake District

Loweswater is one of the least visdited lakes in the National Park, but its really quite lovely and tends to be less crowded than moe famous watering places. There are parking areas along the north shore, but even better is Holme Wood on the south side, where trails lead through wooded plantations.
