Over 1,800 people live within the boundaries of the park itself, but it spreads out across several different counties (Cumbria, Lancashire and North Yorkshire).

The Cumbrian landscape extends over 154 square miles, making this national park size wise England's largest. The north west region is famous for its picturesque lakes; England's deepest lake - Wastwater (80m), Scafell Pike (978m), England's highest mountain and countless other beautiful views.
