Cumbria is one of the most beautiful rural counties in England. 

From the coast to the valleys, the fells to the woodlands, Cumbria's countryside has a diversity of landscapes and a high level of natural beauty.

We are working with others to support the enjoyment of our countryside and green spaces whilst protecting and enhancing its natural, wildlife and historic qualities.

The Cumbria Landscape Character Guidance and Toolkit helps us to do this.
