Holme Fell a secret lake in the Lake District in Cumbria.
They are two of country's hottest holiday destinations, visited by millions of tourists each year - but now a new book has revealed the hidden gems of the Lake District and Yorkshire Dales.
The guide turns its back on hotspots like Lake Windemere, Coniston, Kendal and Bowness, instead unveiling more than 400 of the best kept secrets of Britain's most popular national parks, found only off the beaten track.
It lifts the lid on hidden waterfalls, huge caverns, forgotten tunnels, secret valleys and islands, bothy huts, lost ruins, magical meadows and ancient forest away from the tourist trail.
The Wild Guide to the Lake District and Yorkshire Dales is published by Wild Things Publishing on June 1 and costs £15.99.
