If you and your family love the idea of getting away from the chaotic modern world to enjoy a relaxing experience in the heart of nature then Cumbria is the perfect county to visit. The Lake District alone boasts endless mesmerizing landscapes to admire.

This county has featured before on the blog, but it’s worth mentioning again because it’s such a beautiful place to visit. It’s the perfect place to go for a camping holiday, but there’s a lot more to this county than stunning fields and other beautiful natural sights. You should head to Fantasy Island in Skegness if you want to take you and your family to an adventurous theme park resort. You could also head to Lincoln if your children are a fan of animals because the Woodside Wildlife and Falconry Park is a wonderful place for kids to see intriguing animals of all varieties. There are so many fascinating towns and parks in the county of Lincolnshire. It’s well worth a visit for a short family break.
