Item description for HIDDEN PLACES OF THE LAKE DISTRICT AND CUMBRIA (The Hidden Places) by Barbara Vesey...
This is the 7th edition of the very popular Hidden Places of The Lake District and Cumbria. The cover, page layouts and maps in this edition have been completely redesigned to produce a very attractive and easy-to-use travel guide covering the Lake District and Cumbria. The book is printed in full color and includes detailed directional maps and eye catching photographs. It is also packed with places of interest, places to stay and places to eat and drink full details of which are contained in a handy separate section. The Lake District is renowned for its impressive mountain scenery but it also offers visitors green rolling hills, fast flowing rivers, deep lush forests and of course the enchanting and languid lakes. The delightful county of Cumbria in which the Lake District resides is England's second largest county, but surprisingly has a relatively small population of only 490,000 people which is only slightly more numerous than the city of Leeds. Apart from the Lake District, visitors to Cumbria will also find gentle moorland, craggy coastal headlands and scattered woodlands as well as a fascinating history and cultural heritage.
The cover of the new edition incorporates an eye-catching photograph of Ullswater near Mossdale Bay in the Lake District.

Reviews - What do customers think about HIDDEN PLACES OF THE LAKE DISTRICT AND CUMBRIA (The Hidden Places)?
Too commercial; too abbreviated Jul 13, 2007
I have purchased 5 books to help me with an upcoming trip to the Lake District and this is the one book I would have passed on. The book has commercial advertisements which detract from the book. Also, the restaurant and hotel recoommendations are sparce. Skip this book and buy Rough Guide instead.
Don't Waste Your Money Jul 24, 2006
Don't be fooled by this so-called "book" -- one quarter of the space is taken up with cleverly-distinquished ads for guest houses and the like. If you didn't read the fine print, you might be fooled into thinking that the author was recommending these places, but they paid to be there.
The rest of the text is pretty basic, and not very detailed. The Rough Guide to the Lakes District is MUCH, MUCH better -- better researched, more detailed, and more objective.
