At a glittering ceremony held at The Castle Green Hotel in Kendal, Cumbria, this July the Cumbria Tourism Awards winners were crowned. In celebration, we’re running through our bucket list of winners. Here, we take a look at our experiences and producers, including accessible water sports and locally made skin care.


Anyone Can

Accessible and Inclusive Tourism Award | Sponsored by The Cumberland

 Anyone Can accessible adventure

Anyone Can believe adventure should be accessible to all, and offer a range of activities for those with additional needs - helping everyone to enjoy the great outdoors. From accessible canoeing and sailing, to climbing and caving, there are a range of activities on offer across the Lake District, Cumbria. 



Muncaster Castle, Gardens and Hawk and Owl Centre

Ethical, Responsible and Sustainable Tourism Award | Sponsored by Stagecoach Cumbria and North Lancashire


Small Visitor Attraction of the Year     


Winning not one, but two Cumbria Tourism awards, Muncaster Castle is a must visit for all ages. Discover the history of the main castle building and wander its ancient halls; stroll through beautiful gardens with stunning views; and see birds of prey in flight at the on-site Hawk & Owl centre, in collaboration with the Hawk Conservancy Trust. Conservation and sustainability are at the heart of Muncaster Castle: there are diverse natural habitats which support local wildlife including Red Squirrels; an Eco Barn highlighting what we can do to help our environment; and plenty more.


Tullie House Museum and Art Gallery

Large Visitor Attraction of the Year | Sponsored by H&H Reeds


Discover exhibitions showcasing fine and decorative art, human history and natural sciences at Tullie House Museum and Art Gallery in the centre of Carlisle, Cumbria’s only city. Old Tullie House is a classical Grade One Listed Jacobean building; adjacent is a purpose built art gallery, seamlessly fusing new and old. As well as permanent collections, there are also temporary exhibitions to discover, meaning there’s always something new to see.

The Makers & Producers Award went to Pure Lakes, who create natural and cruelty free skincare, handmade in the Lake District. They have a strong commitment to sustainability, with environmentally friendly packaging and a refill service available to repeat customers.
