Ah, Cumbria. Famous for its lakes, mountains, Grasmere gingerbread and Cumberland sausages. A UNESCO world heritage site and place that celebrities come to holiday (oh, hi, Henry Cavill) and above all, home to many of us.
For Valentine’s 2021, we wanted to celebrate by asking you, what do you love about Cumbria? Be it the scenery, your school or place of work, the animals or even XL Cheese crisps. Whatever you had in mind, we wanted to hear it.
So without further ado, let’s get into the reasons you guys love Cumbria…
