THE Lake District has been chosen as one of the most scenic places in the UK by some of the country’s award-winning travel photographers.

International car rental site recently released the 2021 list of the '25 Most Scenic Places in the UK' after asking travel photographers to choose their favourite locations to shoot.

The Lake District placed fourth, with Bath clinching the top spot.

Photographer Ruth Allen, who is based in Derbyshire, spoke of her love for the Lakes.

She said: “Ambleside is picture-perfect from any angle, in any weather.

“It’s the ultimate destination in England for hills, swims and cakes.

“Nowhere else can satisfy the brief for a big mountain day, followed by a refreshing Lakeland swim in freshwater, topped off with an abundance of options for replenishing the calories lost!

“Walk the Fairfield Horseshoe, then have a swim in Rydal Water or Windermere, and round out the day with local food from one of the many bakeries, cafes or restaurants in the town centre.”
