Create a map of the Lake District
to feature on a bustling office wall,
whilst providing accurate overview
of the National Park

Hunting for original artwork for your wall? We specialise in innovative, bespoke maps. Good Life Cottage Company has a great reputation in the Lake District for marketing lovely holiday properties to a national/international audience. James was searching for the perfect wall feature for the second-office based in the Lake District National Park. When it came to the new office in Windermere, they wanted people to feel at ease, be able to see the whole Lake District area on one map and choose the place the guests wanted from their holiday cottage.

Clear Mapping Co had a consultation with the client, we decided that the cartographic style should blend in with the interior design in terms of colour and style, harking back to the days of A Wainwright or Arthur Ransome’s “Swallows and Amazons” stories. A simpler time of good wholesome outdoor fun.

The entire area is based on four OS Explorer Map sheet areas, which means you can see the whole of the Lake District in its entirety. We could then be more particular on the ‘must do’ peaks and places to visit while on holiday. The map suits the classic style of the interior design and really does provide a distinctive feature wall.

This was the first time we have ever done anything like this and we are delighted with the result!
I would happily recommend Caroline and the Clear Mapping Company to others!
