In 2017 Cumbria received over 47 Million Visitors, which was made up of over 40 million day trippers, and 7 Million overnight visitors. These visitors brought in around 3 billion pounds to the county of Cumbria.
These numbers have increased in the past 5 years, we think due to the help of social media advertising and increasingly expensive foreign holidays.
Out of that 47 Million only around 3.62 Million people came to Copeland. Although there has been a rise of 4.6% we still feel that Copeland is not promoted to its full potential. Our area of Copeland has it all… great beaches, beautiful panoramic views and lots to do. But the most important attraction you will find here are the people.
Whilst creating this website we have spoken to many people living in local villages and towns and asked them why they live here. We found that a huge number have moved to the area after visiting the area for a holiday. The majority say, is a beautiful tranquil place to live with affordable housing, generous salaries. Nearly all said it was because of the low crime and the friendly people. Many describe it as ‘going back in time’ and it is this appeal that brings them to this area.
Copeland has the highest mountain in England (Scafell Pike), deepest lake (Wastwater) and the mighty Black Combe, which we think is the best place in the UK to see the 5 kingdoms….. England, Ireland, Scotland, Wales and the Isle of Man. We have over 10 beautiful beaches, castles, Neolithic stone circles and a coastal path that runs continuous for 20 plus miles.
What we aim to do is promote our area from the point of view of both the locals and the tourists. We can help you plan a wonderful holiday but don’t be surprised if you want to come back and live here!
