Hi, my name is Teresa and I’d love to show you around my back garden, The Lake District National Park in Cumbria.
Growing up and living in cities I have always longed for a life in the country, so when the chance came, I willingly packed my bags and moved north to the wild green open spaces. My guiding career grew out of a desire to share this new life with friends and family. Now, as a Blue Badge Guide, I share my love of the region with people from around the world.
I enjoy connecting visitors to the landscape and people of this area, but I also understand that part of the enjoyment of being here is being able to relax, so I offer a friendly, professional service to help you make the most of your time, whether that be for a week or just for a few hours I will do everything I can to make it a memorable experience.
My bespoke tours are designed specifically to appeal to your preferences, whether that be in the beautiful Lake District National Park or exploring some of the quieter regions of Cumbria. I want to help you make the most of your time here, to make wonderful memories and take away great tales of what makes this place quite so special.
So if you are planning a trip to Cumbria, and would like a guide who is friendly and believes in great customer service please get in touch and let me know what it is that makes you tick. I’d love to help you plan a trip that is your own special adventure.

Cumbria's unique landscape has been shaped by the combined work of nature and human activity. Farming has been a part of this landscape for hundreds of years, its story is integral to the area and continues to shape and grow the landscape
|Art/Paintings & Sculpture||
Being home to some of the most beautiful landscapes in the world it is no surprise to hear that Cumbria has inspired generations of artists. From JMW Turner and John Constable through to more local characters such as Percy Kelly or Josefina de Vasconcellos there are many wonderful examples of historical art and influences as well as many current artists willing to share their inspiration
|Churches & Cathedrals||
There are many wonderful and unique buildings to visit along with some beautiful stained glass form the Arts & Crafts artists, especially Edward Burne-Jones
|Decorative Arts/Arts & Crafts||
There are many wonderful examples from the Arts & Crafts Movement to be seen, from the stunning Blackwell through to many different individual pieces of art, stained glass windows, embroidery etc. Or we can explore the more contemporary artists who are working today, evolving the heritage crafts of the area.
|Food & Drink||
With a great food heritage, Cumbria is one of the best foodie destinations in the country, with everything from foragers to award winning local food producers and Michelin starred restaurants there is much to explore.
Wordsworth's birthplace, and where he lived much of his life, his story is intertwined with the Lake District.
My favourite way to explore. Many people think you have to be able to scale a mountain to experience the views in Cumbria, well that's just not true. I love to walk through the villages and on the 'fells' (hills) taking in the the landscape an heritage that make this place so special
