Cartmel - L'enclume A restaurant with rooms, becoming something of a legend for the quality and imaginative approach which Simon Rogan brings to his work.

Have you explained how the destination will attract tourists? I believe the tourism lake district would attract would be a mixture of inbound and outbound as the natural surroundings are as attractive to everyone. I believe the age of people visiting would be ranging from around 30-40 years of age as people too young may not understand the beauty of lake district. Couples of families may visit lake district as it may romantic for couples and refreshing for families.
