This Lake District’s Derwent Water Blasted For Having ‘Too Much Water’ And No ‘Free WiFi’

There is nothing better than heading to the Lake District National Park for a beautiful day out or weekend away. There is always something new to discover and its nice to switch off from the fast pace world we live in – well we think so, but some people did not agree.

After taking a trip to one of the most amazing national parks in the country, some TripAdvisor users were left less than impressed by the Lake District National Park.

One disaapointed visitor didn’t quite get the Lake District experiene. After a trip to the beautiful Lake District last year, one user wrote: “There was too much water for my liking not enough free Wi-fi. Thought the place was a bit boring too many ducks.”

Sat in the middle of nowhere expecting free Wi-Fi and getting mad at ducks seems like a totally different holiday to everyone elses experience of the Lakes which usually involves fantastic wlkas around places like Grasmere, Windermere and Ambleside taking in fantastic natural wonders, old-fashioned pubs and and local restaurants.

But – not for this fellow. It’s not the first time that someone has left a bewildering review of the Lake District.

After hiking up Skiddaw, a popular beauty spot in the Lake District a woman didn’t hold back on what she thought about England’s third-highest peak.

The beauty spot stands at 931 metres tall and boasts some fantastic views across the Lake District National Park. One TripAdvisor reviewer wasn’t happy with the thing and left her thoughts about Skiddaw naming it a ‘weak and poorly developed visitor attraction’.

She continued comparing it to the Welsh mountain Snowdon saying: “Snowdon has a funicular railway to carry people to the summit. At Snowdon summit there is an excellent visitor centre with the full range of facilities – and the whole operation attracts hundreds of thousands of visitors per year.

“Ascending to the summit of Skiddaw is an exhausting experience on the basis that the only means to get up there is to walk. It is just too high and too steep for most people. How can the Lake District National Park people expect people to go up there?”

The mind boggles eh?
