New CCR200 coastal route to showcase 'hidden' Lake District

49f98da9-d934-4de1-8c8f-9b58d299a098

A new 200-mile coastal road trip showing off the lesser-known side of the Lake District has been launched.

The CCR200 route stretches through Cumbria from Morecambe Bay in the south to the Solway Firth in the north.

The route takes in two AONBs and various nature reserves as well as other attractions like secluded beaches and  castles. A 32-mile stretch of England’s Coast Path, which recently opened between Whitehaven and Silecroft beach, is also included within the route.

The road trip is aimed at campers of all kinds - including those in motorhomes, campervans, caravans and tents - and has been split into five sections that can each be done in a day, with itinerary ideas and a mix of campsites to choose from.

Managing Director of Cumbria Tourism, Gill Haigh, said: “The CCR 200 route aims to open people’s eyes to all the hidden gems they may not be aware of, particularly along our stunning coastline which stretches from Morecambe Bay to the Scottish border, taking in Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, layers of hidden heritage and history, and plenty of water-based activities for all the family.”
