Im visiting from Australia in September for a wedding in Cockermouth. Going to hire a car from London Heathrow and drive up. I enjoy the freedom of a car and to explore as much as i want when im in the Lakes and on the way up north.
It easily to find the quickest and most direct route from Heathrow to Cockermouth BUT can anyone give me any ideas on the nicest, most scenic route? What are some places to see along the way? Happy to stop, be a tourist and even stay a night somewhere!
Which route would you take to really enjoy the journey??
